7 Best Bree-less Deathcore Or Part Deathcore Songs I've Heard.

The fruits of my brief journey through the genre of deathcore. Ironically enough, most songs from this list are only part deathcore, with either progressive, technical or grind influences. But that stuff is simply better, so it figures!
1The Contortionist
Flourish

Damn, this is beautiful. Not purely deathcore by any means, this has only elements of it. But these elements have already won "Exoplanet" the opinion of the best deathcore album made. And this song is just beautiful. When metalheads love a supposedly deathcore band and bros don't, it has to tell you something.
2The Red Chord
Sixteen Bit Fingerprint

Probably their best song, this stuff is simply fantastic. Again, I don't consider this band purely deathcore, more like a tech death/deathcore/grind hybrid. Their experimental songwriting is probably what makes them so much better than the bro bands.
3Born of Osiris
Behold

The closer of "The Discovery", an album that has instantly elevated them above most other deathcore bands. Great use of keys and progressive elements give this prog/deathcore band a definite edge over other deathcore material. A lot like The Contortionist, but not quite as good.
4The Boy Will Drown
Dead Girls

The most varied and dynamic song from "Fetish". TBWD are a bit like TRC, with a more pronounced tech death influence and less grind. But their creative songwriting and perky youthful humor linked with shredding sweeps definitely make them more interesting than almost all other deathcore.
5Glass Casket
Too Scared To Live

The first band from here that I believe to be a purely deathcore band. Among those, it's definitely the best. The opener "Phenomenon/Too Scared To live" is simply an extremely well composed track of this genre, with a lot of stuff happening throughout, instead of the usual chugfest.
6The Acacia Strain
Seaward

TAS are a very bro band with lazy songwriting, but in Seaward it seems like they at least tried this time around. It's pretty elaborate compared to most of their other stuff, and quite a bit happens in this song. Definitely the best from Continent and Wormwood, at the very least.
7Despised Icon
Diva of Disgust

DI had quite an ungainly songwriting style, but it improved dramatically on their final album "Day of Mourning". Diva of Disgust wins thanks to its decent structure and great outro, the emotional charge of which is simply stunning. Most songs from the album are of a similar level, though.
