|The Definitive Metalcore List|
Yeah so I don't have class until 2 P.M. tomorrow and I feel like
making a productive list for once. Personal rankings; dissenting
opinions will be thoroughly looked down upon.
|2||The Ghost Inside|
Between the Lines
Because WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?!
Willing Oneself To Forget About What Cannot Otherwise Be Forgiven
THIS WON'T BE THE DEATH OF ME. This song ought to be considered iconic.
(You Think You're) John Fucking Locke
The Tides Will Carry Us isn't out yet, and this easily one of the best modern
metalcore songs outright.
Ebb and Flow
It's fucking Misery Signals. And there are fucking cleans.
|10||Stray From The Path|
Easy choice. If you only ever listen to one song by Stray From The Path,
listen to this one.
Attribute of the Strong
All of Heat hits as hard as this song, but everything they have to give
stylistically is very nicely demonstrated here.
Hollow Crown is again, a fantastic album, but Early Grave is still the best on it.
|16||August Burns Red|
A very tough choice given the general quality of their work, but if you enjoy
White Washed, you'd probably enjoy the rest of their songs.
I just have a blatant soft spot for this band. Not even a little bit bothered
Volumes hit a very very sweet spot with this one, and it's still yet to be
determined whether they'll ever top it.
|22||Haste The Day|
Sons of the Fallen Nation
Kind of a big deal in the metalcore world. If for nothing other than the sheer
volume of quality (and questionable) work they've put out. This is just my
|23||Stick To Your Guns|
STYG is STYG and does STYG things. This is one of those things. A good one,
Remove the Earth is just a VERY solid and VERY underrated album.
|25||After the Burial|
In Dreams is arguably better, but this is far and away their most striking
song. The heavy djent is present, but so is the melody, and powerfully so.
Gets cheesy towards the end, but oh well.
|27||Maylene and the Sons of Disaster|
Is That A Threat Or A Promise
Southern motherfucking rock. And there's a goddamned cowbell. If you
don't like it, America doesn't like you.
|30||Life In Your Way|
Just listen to it. It'll all make sense.
|32||The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza|
Yippie Kay-Yay Motherfucker
Danza does it dirty, heavy, and really fucking well.
|34||Born of Osiris|
The Discovery is Born of Osiris' peak, and this is just one of their most
|35||Memphis May Fire|
Quantity is their Quality
Kind of wished they had kept going in this kind of a direction. The Hollow
wasn't nearly as awesome.
Down To The Spark
Sending You Strength is just a lovable little mix of metalcore elements.
ALONE ALONE ALONE, SO ALONE! ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON!
Song is catchy.
|39||Straight Reads The Line|
Top-notch musicianship can't quite carry this band any further.
Eyes Like The Tides
Not quite sure what Vanna became after Chris left, but apparently it sounds
|48||For The Fallen Dreams|
Holy fucking shit this band has an overpoweringly good drummer.
Son of the Morning
Anything with even a little southern is great. Song happens to be decent as
A Call to the Faithful
This song is kinda southern, so it gets 69 I guess.
Really awesome at points, but kind of like Emmure at some other points.
|86||Within The Ruins|
Chuggy and proggy get really drunk and have sex. This is what it sounds like.
Split the Sky
This is kind of good, but rough around the edges.
|94||Veil of Maya|
It's Not Safe To Swim Today
Entry level, but an immensely gratifying listen.
|96||A Different Breed of Killer|
It's kind of like As Blood Runs Black, but kind of better.
|98||I The Breather|
Guilty Pleasure. Typical Sumerian band is typical.
|99||Broadcast The Nightmare|
Mostly a guilty pleasure. Jonathan Vigil of The Ghost Inside is featured. I
can't help it.
