. They're awesome. Like what else do I really need to say?!

22 Secrets
23 Capture the Crown

They Are They Best Out There No Questions Asked

24 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.

They have haters now since the song, "Alone". But I still love them cause the change just shows how what Ronnie went through affected him so much. He's a better person now.

Jacky Vincent is wasted in this band. He's an amazing guitarist, he could do so much better.

First album -> Amazing

Second album -> Terrible if you don't like hip-hop

25 Beartooth Beartooth Beartooth is an American metalcore band formed by Caleb Shomo in Columbus, Ohio in 2012. They are signed to Red Bull Records since 2013 along with Shomo's electronic act Class.

Listen to their album disgusting, case closed.

Beartooth kicks ass better then all these other bands

Better than most band on this list

26 Escape the Fate

This band is awesome! Both Ronnie and Craig are sick singers, and both voices blended with the music incredibly. Good screaming, great vocals, awesome riffs, drumming through the roof, it doesn't get much better. Just listen to the first minute and a half of This War Is Ours and you'll be convinced.

Escape the fate sucks. Their singer sounds like a little girl half the time, and his shrieking is unbearable. I sacrificed my vote to let everyone know..

why this isn't at #3 is why beyond me, this band kicks way more ass than most of the bands on this list

27 Attack Attack!
28 Underoath Underoath

Songs to listen: Im Content With Losing, Its Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door, In Regards To Myself -

Deserve to be in Top 5. Not as technical as As I Lay Dying or August Burns Red, but the expiremental feel makes up for that.

29 Architects Architects Architects is a British Metalcore band formed in 2004 in Brighton, East Sussex. Consisting of five band members, Architects' discography consists of seven studio albums and one split EP.

These guys are outstanding musicians, they have taken the post-hardcore/Metalcore sound of today and mixed it with some awesome technical and complex music. It sounds full, and although the vocalist might be considered weak, it really suits the music and makes it complete. Also, the guitarist and drummer are musical geniouses, when it comes to writing complex music, these are the guys to talk to

I was at their concert at Saarang 14. Let me tell you, I never listen to any kind of metalcore and had very low expectations of them, but boy, did they surprise everyone! The whole crowd headbanged to glory, even those lowly "one directioners" and those who never had listened to even rock songs! Incredible stage presence! #Respect from India.

Literally, THE MOST INTENSE LYRICS EVER. OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE DON'T KNOW TRUE TALENT AND GREAT MUSIC. They are my favorite and will continue to he my favorite forever.

Why 30th place?

Daybreaker is one of my favorite albums ever!
"These Colours don't run" and "Even if you win, you're still a rat" are some of my favorite songs ever!

These guys are my nr 1 any day!

30 Dead by April

Bullet For My Valentine at top..? No way, DBA is the best. Go and find out you Bullet For My Valentine lovers.

Come one people! DbA so low? No way, just listen to the song "Losing You", it's so melodic and beautiful along with the awesome screaming. It's better than "Tears Don't Fall" by Bullet For My Valentine, I say it without doubt. It's better than "The Final Episode" by Asking Alexandria, again without doubt. Don't believe me? Go listen yourself and then tell me. Just awesome, go Dead by April! The Metallers from Sweden.

31 Eyes Set to Kill
32 The Ghost Inside

These guys should be in the top ten they have insane breakdowns and incredible vocals. Listen to engine 45.

34 Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper is an American Christian metalcore band from Fort Worth, Texas. Previously signed to Solid State Records they are currently operating independently.

Number one by far. The only band that holds a candle to oh sleeper is as I lay dying. Listen to the entire son of the morning cd and it will change your outlook on christan metalcore

35 In Dying Arms

Their first album was slam sounding and they have transitioned all the way to metalcore. Every song theyve ever wrote is a masterpiece

36 Ice Nine Kills
37 Hatebreed Hatebreed Hatebreed is an American metalcore band from Connecticut, formed in 1994. They have released 7 studio albums to date, most recently The Concrete Confessional on May 13, 2016. Their musical style blends influences from hardcore punk and heavy metal; a prominent band within the hardcore scene, they have more.

Hatebreed is without a doubt the best hardcore band period. Slipknot is nu metal u idiots!

38 Counterparts
39 Make Me Famous
