Top 10 Post-hardcore / Metalcore Bandstomthepom15
The Top Ten
Listen to Sempiternal and you will realise that Bring Me The Horizon should be number one, not Escape The Fate! What is wrong with you people?
Very progressive band. They are not so bounded with any genre than other bands R. In my humble opinion of course.
BMTH! Sempiternal is awesome.. , and Oliver Sykes voice rules
This is the only ACTUAL emo band I'd recommend giving a try.V 33 Comments
My favourite band, great mix of clean and unclean vocals as well as downright awesome breakdowns
Asking Alexandria are the best band EVER! Danny is the best singer! I want always to be in ASKING ALEXANDRIA!
Asking Alexandria is the best band because Danny and Ben making the best song ever
Bring me the horizon is cancer why is it even on the listV 26 Comments
The emotion Austin puts into his songs and now including Aaron they are the best, Sleeping With Sirens a close second
Of mice and men are the most amazing new band they should be first!
They're genuinely great! Austin Carlile is amazing and so is Shayley, they should most and definitely be first or second after Asking Alexandria!
These guys obviously deserve to be number 1. Whoever voted for escape the fate, devil wears prada, pierce the veil, or a day to remember, you need to get a life and listen to better music. This band is perfect, without flaw. Every single one of their songs are amazing, except maybe 'the calm'. I can understand AA being first, but still. Vote for these guys!
Are you legitimately dissing all those great bands? I'm sorry, but I don't think my music taste asked for you to hate on it. If that's your opinion, then fine. But my apparently "non-existent" life is fine without you criticizing it.
Austin Carlile Screams?!
And Shayley Vocal?!
A day to remember has been my favorite band since god knows when. The truly put on a great show when I went to go see them and they put a lot of effort into it and you could definitely tell. That concert really was a lot of fun and you could tell they really care about their fans. A day to remember also has really great music and I haven't met a song I don't like. They have really catchy "screamo" songs and its hard to make "screamo" songs catchy like theirs.
Brilliant growls and the lyrics are so relatable
Amazing vocals and killer guitar riffs
The band shares a great story about their sacrifices for musicV 15 Comments
Such an amazing band, Matty's screams are solids and his cleans are some of the best in the metal scene
Respectable position for this band but still does deserve more credit, Matty has amazing clean and unclean vocals and still holds the record for the most "clean" growl in my books.
Memphis May Fire!
Matty's cleans and screams are some of the best out there. their lyrics are very relatable, and motivational. My favorite band
Definitely one of the bestV 11 Comments
I have full respect on every band on this list and to all their listeners who not only love their music but also look up to them as inspiration. I love most of these bands but I've got to say that Pierce The Veil should be really considered in the Top Ten. Their music just speaks so much to me. I mean their songs are very meaningful that almost everyone can relate to it. Unlike other bands who just focus on how good their music should be, Pierce The Veil has its focus on how can their songs speak to their listeners. How can they help these people go through the obstacles of life. They're just one of the best bands, in my own opinion. Oh, and for the record, their music saved my life.
Are you kidding me pierce the veil should be in the top ten. Their music speaks to all fans. They are my only escape no other band makes me feel this was. Nt to mention they don't rely on their lead singer Vic. Don't get me wrong he is amazing but they play beautiful music the two guitars playing with Vic and Tony is awesome and Jaime on the bass. My goodness have you ever listened to Bulls in the Bronx the music is beautiful! Who could forget Mike playing the drums he completes the band perfectly. They are nothing but amazing.
This band has gotten me through some pretty hard times I do have full on respect for other bands but this band in particular deserves the amount of fame they have not saying other bands don't but to me (not including other bands) they mean the world and the fact that I get to see them live is just amazing I mean meeting them would be is astonishing but they mean so much to me that just being in the same room with them and watching them do what they do best and having fun with it is equally amazing I would just love to say thank you to them for giving me hope they inspire me to be like them and help other that aren't doing to well I want to be like them but I don't have any talent but who says you have to have talent to change the world.
Incredibly underrated. A band with amazing song writing and unique sound.V 32 Comments
Insping with perfect lyrics. This band has gotten me thru so much. Isn't that the point it music to inspire a mood within you. Love love love this band number 1 by far
Good band great vocals and their music has meaning to it
Great band, so underrated. "Hope", "Fade away", and "Beliefs" are all very well constructed songs, fits the post-hardcore genre better than many of these bands!
The first time I heard them I was in reading class, lolz - EliHbkV 3 Comments
These guys should be much higher on this list, 23? Should be top 5 at least, not only do they incorporate heart and soul into their incredible music, but they write some of the best music I know. All their albums together are one big story, plus the Johnny trilogy, absolutely incredible. all in all, my favorite post-hardcore/metalcore band by far,
My Top 5:
1. Crown The Empire
2. The Word Alive
3. Stick To Your Guns
4. Memphis May Fire
5. Bring Me The Horizon
Crown the Empire are the greatest band I know. Everything they've ever produced is pure gold and I'm surprised they aren't much higher up this list!
Well they have been out for two years and they already show music as good as any other post hardcore band. Most of the time they are better than the other bands so they should be towards the top.
Saw them in concert, one of the best performances I've ever seenV 5 Comments
Kellin's voice suites the band's name.
Well I heard their latest album feel, it didn't had much screams but kellin's clean vocals are just out of the world, some lyrics were emotional and meaningful, overall nice band. Deserves a listen
Sleeping with Sirens should be on the top 1, I mean really kellin's voice is one of the thing that made the band awesome. Also if you watch him getting featured in King for a Day by Pierce The Veil you will see his scream are so perfect.
Aside from PTV, SWS is also another one to introduce and make me fall in love with the genre!V 18 Comments
I don't think they are an emo band... No! They are just another rock band... I really good one, yeah they wear make up and stuff.. But so did kiss, and no one called them emo! I LOVE black veil brides, all their songs! They're amazing! All their songs have meanings and it's so inspiring I love them and I love than a lot... I love them,... I think you get it now but seriously... I love them
They may not be Emo but lyrically they are way better than the bands higher in the list. Andy Biersack and Ronnie Radke are both the best vocalists right now, without a doubts I feel both bands should be higher up
They are the best the best the best the best! Andy's voice is just too good and their music is really inspiring! They deserve to be way up!
Black veil brides are an awesome band. the bass player says "We carry a message of believing in yourself and letting no one tell you otherwise. We stand up for the underdog and the disenfranchised. Anything strange, odd, or unique… we embrace that. So basically standing up for yourself; have fun and live your life how you choose. You only have one life, make the most of it." this is why they are an amazing bandV 13 Comments
They are the best in my opinion. They write unique music and not just generic open string chugging like most bands in the genre. Monte Money is an amazing guitar player and with Craig's vocals, it's truly amazing. They have guitar solos in most of their songs which I really like. The vocals are very diverse. Craig sings and screams. In some songs such as "This war is ours" there is a section before the solo where he lightly sings to acoustic guitar. Just an amazing overall band.
Amazing band, Craig is an unbelievable vocalist, relatable lyrics, amazingly talented band. The best. Deserve to be #1
ETF is way more better than Asking Alexandria, why? Give me a break, Asking Alexandria is way too overrated, and why do you people listen to some of their non-meaningful songs? Some of them are a big total garbage; on the other hand, ETF, they make a bunch of good and meaningful songs, which totally deserves to be the first, not AA.
The fact that you said "way more better" just shows that you're mentally challenged. Listen to The Death Of Me, then say that AA write non-meaningful songs. I am not saying ETF are bad, I have no positive or negative opinions towards them, but you are insulting AA for no good reason. - BillieJoeArmstrong
HATE THIS BAND! When will people realize that this is poser-metal? BMTH, ADTR, AA, SWS,OM&M and pretty much everyone else on this list (besides BvB, another poser band) are better than ETF.V 17 Comments
Amazing live performance and awesome lyrics! Powerful screams and a perfect clean voice. Every song of them is catchy!
Super clean vocals and very meaningful lyrics. Very well constructed songs that deserve more credit. The unclean vocals are awesome growls and lyrics are uncomparable. These guys need to be recognized. In my eyes they are equal or exceeding as to We Came As Romans.
One of the very few bands where every single one of their songs is great & catchy they don't have any bad songs, check them out
Best post hardcore bandV 3 Comments
Bullet For My Valentine is hands down better than all that bands of top ten...
These guys should be number two there a lot better than stupid bring me the horizon.
Super Hard and Super Melodic and super romantic, perfect!
I love this bandV 7 Comments
New demons is epiC, digital renegade was flawless. What more do you want. They deserve top 10
One of the best bands in my opinion
Best Electronicore band out there, absolutely fantastic
Man, I almost hate to admit it, but ISS is one of my guilty pleasures. Murder mitten, ten thousand feet, glow, 3d this band knows how to write catchy music. Oh, and violent bounce I am so ashamed!
The instrumentals to me are up to par with other bands in the genre, what sets them apart is the powerful vocals from the ever so talented Jag, Brian White is amazing at what he does, and Cory lights it all up with his deep growls. They mix and meld to perfection. There is no other band who could compare, in my opinion.
Their lead singer Michael has one of the most unique voices
Overall great band. I love all their albums
Awesome breakdowns with good lyrics and they ALWAYS stand for their faith
For today no what they want in life and that is to spread the word. And it just happens to be by wrighting some of the best songs in metalcore
Favourite band ever. These guys are such inspirations and I would suggest this band to anyone who likes either metalcore or post-hardcore. Joel writes the most amazing/meaningful lyrics you could ever imagine. Both clean/unclean vocals and the guys who play the instruments are skilled and amazing. If you've never heard them, go look them up now, you won't be disappointed. - aleexbrown1
These guys are awesome, best post-hardcore band ever, highly recommend listening to. They should be totally number 1!
These guys aren't posers when it comes to songs about suicide, they've been doing it from the beginning and haven't just jumped on the bandwagon. Also they are aussie, what more could you ask for?
Favourite band at the moment. The lyrics are so meaningful and passionate. Joel's screams and Ahren's cleans are amazing! TAA make me proud to be AussieV 6 Comments
Chiodos are a band has a different sound than the other post-hardcore bands. Craig listens to different types of music to draw inspiration, rather than the genre they play. He also has some of the best vocals in the industry and it shows that his Charisma alone should put this band at the top of the charts. When he left the band their popularity went down with release of Illuminaudio. The whole band is talented and they show the ability to break the cliches of the genre.
Different than the typical post hardcore band. They give something new other than toned down guitars, breakdowns and typical Over use of screaming
They are amazing. Craig's vocals are perfect.
This is the absolute best combination of clean lyrics with screams. The lyrics are powerful and hit home. I also love Asking Alexandria but some of their lyrics just are garbage.
THIS BAND IS AMAZING! I can't express how good they are and it's an atrocity that they aren't at the top of this list. Outrageously retarded how much talent jared has with his screams, how good beau is a singing, all the band members in this band are amazing. Elliot beau jared eric and Matt, the best 5 men in a damn amazing band
Perfect example of clean and screams... Ps their instrumental skills are unmatched. Fact, not opinion
My favorite post-metalcore (Post-Hardcore + Metalcore) band ever, my 2nd favorite metalcore band all-around (1st is Bullet For My Valentine, 3rd is Old-School A7X). Whether it's the Screamo-influenced HLW, the chaos of Witness, the Shrieking anthems of Awakening, or the Digital Metalcore of HB and TTLB, they have crisp, clear singing, deep, rough growls, smooth screams, and some of the best instrumentals ever.V 5 Comments
Best band ever. Technical geniuses. Nothing sounds like The Devil Wears Prada do, you will never hear anything as good. Defs worth getting into if you like any kind of metal. You wont regret it.
Mikes Vocals just are phenomenal, backed up with Jeremys Cleans...just amazing. Chris' guitar skills are great, and his riff writing experise really shows in the albums. Not to mention Dans drumming ability. Just an amazing band!
Kinda generic but its nice - EliHbk
First of all, some bands in the list doesn't deserve to be in it. I hate posers who think and say PTV are metal and hardcore, are you serious? STFU. The Devil Wears prada is The Best Band Ever because most of the MetalCore or hardcore music fans grew up on their music. The Lyrics are just Amazing!. I don't know why they're at #7 though! , and why is BMTH at #3! Are you kidding me?!. The Devil Wears Prada and BMTH should switch ranks!
