The Contenders: Page 2

21 Born of Osiris Born of Osiris Born of Osiris is an American deathcore band, formed in 2003 in Palatine, a suburb of Chicago. The group underwent several name changes, including Diminished, Your Heart Engraved, and Rosecrance, before finally settling on Born of Osiris in 2007, basing the name on the Egyptian deity Osiris, and the more.


22 Infant Annihilator Infant Annihilator
23 The Architects

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.

24 Alesana

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

25 Drowning Pool Drowning Pool Drowning Pool is an American Alternative Metal band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996. The band was named after the film The Drowning Pool.
26 Of Mice and Men Of Mice and Men

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.

27 Silence
28 Veil of Maya
29 The Ghost Inside

These guys know how to make good music

30 Miss May I Miss May I

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!

31 Dream On, Dreamer

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.

32 All Shall Perish
33 This or the Apocalypse
34 Slapshock

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 work

35 I See Stars I See Stars

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.

36 Trivium Trivium Trivium are an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released seven studio albums and nineteen singles.

Mindblowing music, mindblowing vocalist! One of the best bands in my opinion. - Flav

38 I Killed The Prom Queen

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

39 Destruction of A King
40 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.


Seriously though, this band has helped me through so much. Not meaning to sound cheesy, but my life has been nothing but Rejection due to ADHD and resulting anxiety disorder that is a living hell, and this bands songs have always helped me get through these hard times. There will always be a soft spot in my heart for these guys.

Yes! Everyone hates BVB because they think that they aren't 'metal enough' but hey, they've come so far and they aren't half as metal as other bands, so obviously they're doing something right. (no this is not coming from a twelvie, its coming from a 16 year old)

Honestly, bvb is awesome! The fact that they've made it this far into the metal category, without death metal riffs and screaming, is impressive. And the vocals are great!

I love Black Veil Brides!
