Lyrically, they have greatly matured from there early EP, to life lessons and they way to perceive the world
This band has turned into a seasoned veteran of Deathcore
Suicide Silence is one of the deathcore bands that got me into screaming and this type of music at age 9. Lyrically, they have improved the most out of any other band in this music genre. I believe this band should be at least in First, Second, Or Third.
extreme band, very much enjoyable.
beneath the sky is also good.
Its been great.. then eddie comesV 24 Comments
These guys are sick there last album disarm the descent is the most played album I have @ the moment
Don't tell me you have forgotten this one. - aeromaxx777
come on... this should be right at the top behind as I lay dying
These guys.. Enough said glad Asking Alexandria came to be it showes UK still isn't done with their talent and still can compete, they earned my vote wish I woulda known about this sooner ;D this list isn't bad I don't agree with the order, but I'm just one vote.
Good balance between singing and screaming,
Killer riffs, brilliant breakdowns,
Heavy, but still melodic and catchy.
LOVE this band.
Plus, british accents are pretty rad.
They are amazing. I love Danny's scream. One of the EPIC screamo song they have. A Prophecy and A single moment of sincerity are one of them. I just love their breakdown.
I love them so much can't wait to see them in concertV 17 Comments
They are the best Screamo band I'm not gonna say anything you can hear by yourself if you wanna something Cool not so heavy hear 11th hour of you wanna screamo hard song hear black label if you wanna good riffs hear walk with me in hell if you wanna good drums hear ruin! Lamb of god are kings of screamo bands and the guitarist will be the next Kirk! - nooreldeen
They are in none of these genres. They are groove metal. - Sabbath
King Me is killing ME!
The world's greatest metal musicV 2 Comments
This is my favorite band how is this not already on the list
The Devil Wears Prada is the greatest band alive! They have continued to make incredible music and changed their style among their different albums. They deserve to be #1.
Mike Hranica screams are great!V 1 Comment
I'm just going to vote for Slipknot because they're awesome. But seriously, "deathcore/metalcore/screamo" is such a broad and undefined classification that you might as well just put your favorite modern mainstream metal band on the list. METAL FANS: IT'S ALL METAL AND IT'S ALL GOOD.
Slipknot.. They are gods of nu metal. Just... Go and listen.
This list should be slipknot first and then suicide silence
Absolutely love them but why in God's name are they on this list.V 9 Comments
Amazing band great guitar, drums and vocals, also some amazing lyrics and some of the best breakdowns ever. My favourite band.
These guys are insane
If anyone had heard these guys they would have 100% of the vote!
Best metalcore I've heard in a while!V 6 Comments
Incorporate screaming into their songs well, with good use of both Matt Tuck and Jason James with screaming. Mean guitarists with both Matt Tuck and Michael Paget being able to play anything and everything, and then Michael 'Moose' Thomas tops it off with epic drumming that goes well in their songs.
I am so in love with them they are the best band ever
My favourite band ever! Love all of there songs!
Best Metalcore band, Tears Don't Fall, Your Betrayal, Suffocating under Words of Sorrow.. ♡V 1 Comment
This band is seriously talented! They have good lyrics, good singers, good drummer, and awesome guitarists (Nick Hipa) no other bands should be compared with as I lay dying. they have the great talent. Also, they are awesome at live concerts
Its the sound of truth, nothing left, through struggle, morning waits and so on tat makes tis band my best
the best metalcore band! no doubt about it - rock2metal
Lower than bmth, and suicide silence?.. Is this list in reverse or what? All these bands do is chug chug, their songs sound the same. As I Lay Dying has much more effort in song construction. Nick Hipa is a great guy. come on peepsV 7 Comments
I love Metallica and all, but they aren't anything-core or screamo. They're Thrash.
Since when does Metallica Metalcore, Deathcore or Screamo? - Flav
this band is awesome and the vocals sear into your skull
'This calling', 'oppressive opposition', 'the last time', are all amazing songs but especially 'two weeks' killed it, they are my #1 group
Best band ever, I like the old albums as much as their new one and a can't and will not stopp listening them.
Much metalcore-bands sound too whiny and cloned. there are few exceptions, but these are very very awesome bands, like as I lay dying, parkway drive, trivium and of course august burns red! - Flav
Agreed on the first two albums. After that, they ruined metalcore
Only first 2 albums - Flav
AMAZING, TALENTED BAND WHO DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP 10!
These guys are awesome and are my favourite deathcore band! My favourite song by them is calling in silence, it has wicked high vocals and strong lows and its melodic with heavy breakdowns! Haha I love it
Chelsea Grin Yeah! It's the greatest band here! Come on guys vote for them! This band is pure awesomeness! Chelsea Grin rule! Woohoo!
These guys should be at the top, not the 25th. They have an amazing sound way better than the others
Best deathcore band ever. Their best song is calling in silence and last breath.V 2 Comments
Phil Bozeman is an amazing vocalist. His screams are some of the coolest and most talented I've ever heard, and the band is very talented with amazing riffs and solos, by far the greatest deathcore band ever
Best band I have ever heard. Meaningful lyrics and Phil really knows how to bring out the emotion in all of his songs - hlmni
They are brilliant and these got me into screamo
Phil Bozeman!V 5 Comments
Great music, great band lyrics are meanfull. Good drummer, guitarist and singer. Loverscreamo.
My favorite metalcore band. They changed so much about my live. They are just amazing, so beautiful. Chris, Joshua, Angelo, Ryan, Devin, Ricky. They are all perfect. Ricky is one of my idols, and I remember when they played upcoming for AA in Copenhagen I met Ricky. He is so cute. I couldn't live without Rihanna, Evanescence or Motionless In White! Seriously.
I can see the pain in Chris Motionless songs, amazing Lyrics, YOU GOT TO LOVE THIS GUY, Seriously, this band is going to be the greatest thing since Misfits and Marylin Manson, they songs have a nice combo between industrial metal, screamo and old school goth and metal bands.
MIW are an amazing band who I can't go without listening to, they've progressed so much over the years and just keep getting better and better with every release
Amazing band I think personally. Their latest album "Reincarnate" is their most popular and I think it is their best. They have amazing screams mixed with heavy breakdowns and techno/dubstep. The screams are good. The cleans are good. MIWV 6 Comments
You're an idiot. It's a shame that other bands try at metalcore whilst architects exist. They're pure brilliance. But it make sense, when someone things manes like Metallica are Metalcore.
It's not THE Architects! THE Architects is a really annoying old rock band that sounds terrible and, by the way, they're NOT BRITISH!
Makes perfect sense coming from an A7X fan, those boys ruined the idea of Metalcore once the rev died.
Alesana is the best screamo band I've ever knew its better for increasing the female vocals in every songs, it will be great to heard
Underrated band needs more attention. Yet to experience an album I don't like.
This is the best Metal core band out there.
Amazing lyrics Super Screamos and amazing guitar deserves to be number 1! Well actualy no.2 as I lay dying is the best one :P
These guys know how to make good music
BEST BAND EVER. Never heard anyone else so talented before. All five of them are amazing. Love the song in august. Jhsbs just down right awesome.
OF MICE & MEN should be at the top. Their songs have a great combination of hardcore screams and clean vocals. Their latest album was so amazingly intense I loved it so much. They also wright some of the most extreme and inspirational songs that make you either just think or just scream along with Austin.
Best screamo band, they're such genuine people, Austin's vocals are killer and their music is so catchy! Also their lyrics are inspirational but also can be fun and uplifting too.
They have amazing vocals whilst still being able to have clear vocals when they are singing, Of Mice & Men will never be even close to being beaten by any other band.
Have to love Of Mice & Men. Great blend between screaming / singing.V 5 Comments
I may sound like the average "biggest fan" here, but ISS did just about everything right in their album, New Demons: amazing breakdowns, powerful lyrics, and don't forget about the terrifying screaming. Pick your poison, but there is no wrong choice in listening to an I See Stars track.
Hands down the best electro-core/metal core band of their time.
Best metalcore out there.
Mindblowing music, mindblowing vocalist! One of the best bands in my opinion. - Flav
Slapshock outranked Infant Annihilator in screaming? Haha.. Laugh out loud
Anyway.. My vote goes to this band cause I'm a Filipino, I admit they're not the best but I have no right not to vote them... (For those who are unfamiliar with them, you gotta listen to Agent Orange if you want Rap Metal, Wake Up if you want groovy riffs and Carino Brutal for good screams..
Slapshock rocks they can scream and growl slapshock can perform anywhere they really rocks
English or Filipino songs, they can scream lyrics with no trouble. - aeromaxx777
Nice keep a good workV 1 Comment
One of the best bands in the genre
You guys seriosly they might not be much meta/death core but number 15!V 1 Comment
I just saw these guys live and they were outstanding. Wicked guitar mixed with Melodic Metal vocals and screams you can actually understand from a great front man. should be much higher on this list!
Definitely one of the best Metalcore bands out there. Levi's screams and growls combine so smoothly with the melodic riffs and fast drumming.
Agreed, this should be higher on the list.
FUN FACT! Levi Benton and I have the same first name! :D But Levi has an awesome voice and the band is super talented!V 2 Comments
These boys from Adelaide turn their standard brutal metalcore sound into an artistic, layered composite with an almost orchestral symphony sound. the guitars and drums seriously are sharp, creating always original flavours for each song. perfect balance between the madness & melody
Best...m/ the craziest I've ever heard..
Excuse me if this isn't metalcore/hardcore/screamo (I'm not big into this music). From what I've heard... these guys are my favorites. - fireinside96
I totally think Escape the Fate should be above most of these bands! Craig's vocals are incredible! His cleans blend perfectly perfectly with the music, and his very few screamers can match how shrill his shrieks are. Robert's bass drum skills are intense, and the guitar work is insane! One of the best aspects of ETF is their guitar solos! Barely any of the bands here use guitar solos, they just replace them with intense breakdowns, which takes a lot less talent. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the bands on this list, but talent wise, ETF is a winner, save a few bands. All in all, ETF is coming back as one of the biggest, and is one of the best!
#1 For sure check it out
This is PROPER metalcore! I guess not as good as parkway drive or august burns red, but still very solid metalcore, which doesn't sound whiny and copied. - Flav
They sound so serious, but if you know the lyrics they're hilarious xD
These guys are insanely talented and have the best pig squeals of anyone even though they aren't heard much on the recent stuff but they are so talented especially in the vocals and guitar department. Should be #1
These guys are insanely awesome you seriously need to put them number one because even though their vocalist isn, t as good as most, the music behind it gives the real feeling that gives you real chills while listening to it. This band is the best deathcore band to ever exist
THESE GUYS ARE THE TITS
Love falling in reverse so yeah I voted for them
How the hell is blood on the dance floor above these guys
Another great metal core band from the Philippines. - aeromaxx777
Should be #1! I Love this band! Hell yeah screamo..
Come on guys! 73?! This should be at least at 10V 1 Comment
Silverstein is one of the best bands ever! The band is a combination of singy songy and screaming. They're songs are so catchy! Their new album This How the Wind Shifts is amazing!
