Good Hardcore/metalcore

With the oversaturation of the genre itself, there are still some worthwhile bands in my estimation. These songs are some of my favorite, and while many may not agree, these are some of favorite guilty pleasures.
1Oh, Sleeper
I Will Welcome The Reaping

The variety in the vocals that range from the breathless talking, to the all out scream, to the clean vocals make for an interesting listen.
2Haste The Day
Ros King

While short, this is just an intense gem of a song that was one of the first aggressive songs that I loved.
3Confide
When Heaven Is Silent

Catchy and tuneful, this band still manages to downtune their guitars and create some sick breakdowns. They seem like one of the true Christian bands in that they seem sincere enough through the passionate vocals and lyrics.
4Bringing Down Broadway
Barely There

Honestly, this is just a closeted love of mine. No defending it, I just love this song.
5This Is The Hospital
Go Comatose For Me, Baby

I believe that this band is an undiscovered gem, while their formula is not too different from other bands of the genre, they deliver music that is honest, concise, and heartfelt. Not overly technical or too simple, they are not too catchy to be considered screamo, but also don't fall the other way in terms of heaviness.
6Hand To Hand
Shark Week

Listens like a more melodic Haste The Day, Hand to Hand has a great variety of vocals and impressive instrumentals.
7Destroy The Runner
Sinners

This is the heaviest song that this band recorded, and in my opinion is one of their best. At times very reminiscent of As I Lay Dying, they still retain their own identity and deliver an amazing song.
8With Life In Mind
Godless Complex

Incredibly impressive drumming coupled with an impassioned shouting vocal delivery, this band stands out from the pack and has the opportunity to make a name for themselves if they receive a chance to come out with a full length in the future.
9Underoath
In Regards To Myself

All-time favorite song by Underoath, one of the most creative bands within the genre.
10Your Memorial
Learn Your Lies

Intense and tight guitars and drums make this band the most musically sound band on this list. The vocals are passionate, and while not the best range, this is still a great song and band.
11Sylosis
Manipulation Through Idols

More metal influenced than most music on this list, one can tell that riffs play a huge part in this band's sound, while the breakdowns are most definitely an afterthought.
12Stick To Your Guns
This Is More

Just a through and through amazing band. Intense breakdowns and gang shouts gets the blood pumping.
13The Human Abstract
Vela, Together We Await The Storm

Epic and well-executed, these guys have amazing musical chops while still not straying too far away from groove-oriented metalcore.
14The Dream The Chase
Faithless

These Aussies are not afraid of melody, and the melancholic vocals propel them ahead of many of their peers. Think of a heavy version of Acceptance, except awesome.
15The Bled
Devolver

With punk urgency and above par lyrics, The Bled are one of my favorite bands.
