Top 10 Best Post-Hardcore Metalcore Vocalists

If you don't know who these people are, then you best get off this top ten because you can't be a fan if you don't know the vocalists of these bands.

But, if you're already nodding your head in acknowledgment, let's get down to the real business. What makes a post-hardcore metalcore vocalist stand out? Is it their vocal range, the emotion they pour into every lyric, or simply the raw energy they bring to live performances?
The Top Ten
1 Austin Carlile Austin Robert Carlile is an American former musician and current baseball coach from Pensacola, Florida. He is the former lead vocalist of Attack Attack! and Of Mice & Men. After leaving Of Mice & Men, he went to coach youth baseball in Costa Rica.

Not my favorite metalcore vocalist, but he's the best all-around vocalist if I'm going to be honest.

This man is the screamer of my favorite band, and he sounds perfect when he's screaming.

Easy blow out... I don't even need to say anything. I will let Austin's music talk for itself.

2 Danny Worsnop Danny Robert Worsnop is an English musician, singer and songwriter, prominently known as the lead vocalist of rock bands Asking Alexandria and We Are Harlot.

How could anyone think he's not a good singer? He has the most powerful growls and highs and has amazing clean vocals. Have you heard "Not The American Average"?

His voice has changed so much. Now he is an amazing clean vocalist on top of still being able to scream with the best of them. Supremely talented.

Amazing vocalist, his growls are pretty good, but his screams are insane. Not many metalcore vocalists can reach screams that high.

3 Mattie Mullins

This man is godly. He can both scream and sing clean, which takes a ton of skill. A skill that he has.

It's Matty by the way.

4 K.C. Simenson

This guy can sing cleans better than almost anyone, right under Mattie Mullins. They did a song together.

5 Ben Bruce

He is the clean singer of Asking Alexandria. If you don't know who he is or who Danny Worsnop is, then you can't call yourself a fan.

6 Craig Owens

Great singer deserves a spot!

7 Oli Sykes Oliver Scott "Oli" Sykes is a British musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the band Bring Me the Horizon. He also founded the apparel company Drop Dead Clothing.

The only vocalist that you can actually understand. Oli's vocals set him apart from other vocalists. Just listen to songs like Sleepwalking and compare that to Drown. Very talented.

Oli has changed his sound over the years, and so has the rest of the band. Personally, I think their best album was Suicide Season.

This guy is much more than just the Hardcore scene. He can growl, scream, and even sing melodiously.

8 Trenton Woodley
9 Michael Jagmin

His cleans are also spectacular, and they seem just about perfect.

10 Winston McCall Winston Thomas McCall is an Australian singer-songwriter and the lead vocalist of the metalcore band Parkway Drive and the hardcore punk band Rain Dogs.

By far, my favorite vocalist there is. If you haven't heard him live, you are missing out on one hell of a set of pipes! Winston doesn't sing, but I don't listen to Parkway because I want to hear clean singing. I will go elsewhere for that.

Absolutely wild screamer. Those lows are just badass, and the highs are brutal. Overall, it just gives me this insane, aggressive energy. His vocals make me want to set fire to a nursing home.

Surely the best vocalist there.

The Contenders
11 Ronnie Radke Ronald Joseph Radke is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, musician, and record producer born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is the current singer of the band Falling In Reverse and is the former singer of Escape The Fate.

Ronnie Radke is an amazing vocalist, both in Escape the Fate and Falling in Reverse.

'Cause everybody's on drugs!

12 M. Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American metalcore/alternative metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

This list is messed up. He is 9th on the top ten metal singers of all time but 18th in metalcore. Gods.

What...? Why is he not in the top 5?

He's the best. Enough said.

13 Sam Carter

He's the best pitch screamer ever. It sounds like his voice is going to give out, but it just keeps going. He also claimed "blegh" as his own.

This guy for #1. He's a simply incredible vocalist. Check out The Distant Blue.

How is he not in the top 10?

14 Hance Alligood
15 Vic Fuentes Victor Vincent "Vic" Fuentes is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Pierce the Veil.

This guy is the reason I love post-hardcore. The sheer amount of emotion he fits into his lyrics can give me goosebumps at times. In my opinion, he is much better than Oli, Austin, or Kellin (even though I love them too). Vic is simply an amazing vocalist, and he MUST be higher up on this list!

He has so much range in his vocals. He makes Pierce the Veil good. Without him, they would suck.

How is Vic not first? He's by far the best vocalist!

16 Kellin Quinn Kellin Quinn Bostwick, born on April 24, 1986, is an American singer and musician. He is best known as the lead singer and keyboardist of the post-hardcore band "Sleeping with Sirens".

In addition to his work with the band, Bostwick is also recognized for his collaborations with other artists. Notably, he worked with the SEGA Sound Team on the game Sonic Frontiers in 2022.

None of the other people on this list have as good a range as him. He is a good screamer but can also sing. He has the face of an angel too.

The first time I heard him sing, I honestly thought it was a woman. His voice is actually perfect.

Why isn't Kellin on the top? He has better vocal chords than those of the above mentioned.

17 Andy Biersack Andrew Dennis "Andy" Biersack, formerly known as Andy Six, is an American singer and pianist. He is the founder and lead vocalist for the American rock band Black Veil Brides, and is its only remaining original member.

Andy Biersack is the best vocalist there is. This site is messed up with people who don't know anything about music. Also, Black Veil Brides are the top metalcore/post-hardcore band around.

His voice can make the sky fall to the ground.

He needs to be in the top five. Enough said.

18 Tyler Carter

Best vocalist on the planet. Incredible range and comes from such a variety of genres. He's absolutely incredible, and his songs have so much meaning.

As far as voice goes, he has the best on this list. But I've never heard him scream, which doesn't make him very versatile.

Listen to Fame Over Demise (Fame >. Demise) acoustic version. Enough said.

19 Howard Jones Howard Jones (Born July 20th, 1970) is an American Heavy Metal vocalist. He currently fronts the band Light the Torch (Formerly Devil You Know), but is best known for his tenure in the band Killswitch Engage from 2002 to 2012 and was a vocalist for the now defunct Blood Had Been Shed.

He can scream and sing like a machine.

20 Ryan Neff
21 Andrew Velasquez

His voice is simply indescribable! It's so warm yet so powerful. Not only does he have superb clean vocals, but he also has good unclean ones.

22 Jonny Craig

If we're going by clean vocals only, Jonny Craig is absolutely higher up on this list. He has masterful control of his voice and vocal runs, has very strong projection and control of it, and performs better live than basically anyone on this list (seriously, check it out on YouTube). The only thing that stops him is his versatility... and, erm, drug addictions.

23 Tilian Pearson

Tilian is amazing. Everything from his days in Tides Of Man to his charm opposite Jonathan Mess in Dance Gavin Dance. Even his solo album is beautiful. He's my second favorite vocalist, right behind another DGD alum, Kurt Travis.

One of the best clean vocalists out there, in my opinion.

24 Jake Luhrs

Damn, perfect skill.

25 Craig Mabbitt

Why is Ronnie above Craig?
