Guide To Metalcore

If you haven't heard one of these then you have problems. I also rrealize this list could be rlonger, but I feel these are the essentials.
8The Armed
These Are Lights


this is a new up and coming band out of detroit. they have a DIY mentality and a converge like sound. All their music is free at www.thearmed.com and they know exactly what they are doing. This is a must have for everyone. best song - hail troglodon
7the bled
pass the flask


due to the lack of love the bled is getting recently i bet most of you are slightly angry about this being on here, but back in 2003 the bled was a beast. a very angry beast that knew how to write effective breakdowns and pummel you to death with them. best song - red wedding
6coalesce
ox


Coalesce have extremely unique vocals and phat grooves. grooves that make and want to hit everything. shame that they are taking a break again, but they did gives us 2 of their greatest offerings last year. best song - wild ox moan
5poison the well
the opposite of december


this is not, in my opinion, their best offering, however this is one of the very first melodic metalcore albums. you can almost point the finger in their direction for a majority of the terrible metalcore bands in existence. they used cleans and melody to make a more accessable form of core. best song - nerdy
4The Dillinger Escape Plan
Calculating Infinity


Pioneered a sub genre. mathcore was dubbed after this album's title and it is a tasty piece of technical dissonance. best song - 43% burnt
3cave in
until your heart stops


This is where the original bar was set before it was raised by botch and converge. disgusting riffs and relentless vocals. best song - Juggernaut
2Converge
Jane Doe


This is how you channel emotion into noise. I would like to argue that some of their newer albums are better than this, but for the sake of this list I will leave this as the best converge album because of the best song on the album. best song - fault and fracture.
1Botch
We Are The Romans


Best song - Transitions from persona to object This album is the definition of how noise can be channeled into art. Nothing is better when it comes to metalcore. This reigns supreme because Botch never wrote songs about how their women screwed them over or how they were tougher than everyone. This is how all music should be.
