42 Escape the Fate Escape the Fate

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

43 I Set My Friends On Fire I Set My Friends On Fire I Set My Friends on Fire is a post-hardcore group from Miami, Florida. The band was formed in 2007 by Matt Mehana and former member Nabil Moo.

They sound so serious, but if you know the lyrics they're hilarious xD

44 We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread With Butter We Butter the Bread with Butter is a German metalcore band from L├╝bben, noted for their heavy use of electronic music characteristics.

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


45 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Love falling in reverse so yeah I voted for them

46 Unearth Unearth Unearth is an American heavy metal band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in 1998, the group has released six studio albums.

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

47 We Came As Romans We Came As Romans We Came as Romans (abbreviated as WCAR) is an American metalcore band from Troy, Michigan, formed in 2005. The band has gone through one name change and multiple lineup changes, and signed to Albany, New York label Equal Vision Records in 2009.

How the hell is blood on the dance floor above these guys

48 Valley of Chrome

Another great metal core band from the Philippines. - aeromaxx777

Should be #1! I Love this band! Hell yeah screamo..

49 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!

57 Thy Art is Murder Thy Art is Murder

Maybe best vocals I've heard and great drummer, though guitars should step up a little.

58 The Acacia Strain

Only 40, Come on, Acacia Strain are a great band, and their live shows are killer. With intense guitar and drum work, and low heavy vocals plus Vincent Bennet's IDGAF attitude is accurately portrayed in the lyrics. The only gripe I can think of for this band is that the music is a bit chaotic for people who aren't really into that sort of music, I'm pretty sure there's not a single line of melodic singing in any acacia strain song but other than that they are a fantastic band
