Overlooked Metalcore/ Deathcore

List is a mash of metalcore/ deathcore/ djent/ and progressive metalcore albums that barely have any ratings and happen to rule.
1A Sight for Sewn Eyes
A Sight for Sewn Eyes


Passionate and raw, hardcore/ metalcore from Canada. This sounds like a faster Code Orange or Counterparts without all the self loathing bs, sprinkled with dillinger-esq moments of chaos.
2Rescuer
With Time Comes the Comfort


It's hard to believe this band is signed to rise records. They play a style of hardcore that reminds me of defeater or even Modern Life Is War at times.
3Kingmaker
The Cradle


This album is fucking nuts. Relentless metalcore with some of the strongest and most unique vocal delivery I've heard in a while, and in many ways similar to Keith Buckley' when he gets all dirty south. Unfortunately this album is practically unlistenable due to it being so ear-stabbingly compressed. Tis a shame
4Dead Hearts
Bitter Verses


Emotionally driven melodic hardcore/ metalcore, that sounds alot like Shai Hulud
5With Life In Mind
Grievances


Nothing groundbreaking, but still worth a listen if you are looking for your classic metalcore formula with a fair amount of replay value. I highly recommend listening to their 3 singles they released before they broke up, because they have some amazing melodic sections and top notch breakdowns.
6Novelists
Souvenirs


Technical wankery mixed with some djent and progressive moments. This album has equally as many proggy cleans as it has deep bellowing growls you would typically hear on any metalcore album. This is pulled off extremely well and keeps songs from every really getting boring.
7Aristeia
Demoralization Of The Luminary


Super spacy/ atmospheric deathcore reminicent of Substructure. Lightning fast drums, off timing tourettes breakdowns, and strained high screams that almost sound like Mitch rose from the dead. Album is a bit of a one trick pony, but not to many bands nail the space metal sound this well.
8Anterrabae
Shakedown Tonight


A great metalcore release that is over 10 years old. This is a very nostalgic metalcore album that brings you back to those sweaty basement moshfests we all miss. Plenty of 2-stepping, trim picking, triggered bass drums, and breakdowns that will bring you back to the good ol days.
9Napoleon
Newborn Mind


Progressive metalcore with a ton of melody and intricate guitar sections. Thing the atmospheric/ melodic side of Architects but more technical.
10Car Bomb
Meta


I'm sure you guys have heard this considering it's #5 on the trending albums list. Not sure why I included it but this is probably the heaviest thing I've heard all year. The raw, unpolished, and spastic sound they have achieved really gives this album it's own identity.
11Stargazer (US)
Genesis


Djent/ Deathcore. These guys are from my home town so I had to give them some love. Objectively, this album rips, and could easily pass as The Contortionist - Exoplanet pt. 2.
12Damned Spring Fragrantia
Divergences


Progressive deathcore/ metalcore done right. It's chaotic, djenty, groovy, and punishingly heavy without falling into typical deathcore stereotypes.
13Fall In Archaea
Aura Magenta


See #12
14Kingdom of Giants
Ground Culture


Fast paced, super tight metalcore with probably too many breakdowns. Despite this, songs are very well thought out and every member has a huge presence.
15The Overseer
Rest and Let Go


Really a post-hardcore album, but severely overlooked. This pulls a ton of influence from Underoath and Thrice.
16Altars
Something More


Catchy/ melodic metalcore reminisicent of Hundredth or even Comeback Kid.
17Dionaea
Still


Memorizing quitar work and song structure. They play a unique blend of post rock/ progressive metal/ and grindcore, somehow transitioning generes mid song seamlessly. This is the only album that has a respectable number of ratings, yet I've never seen it in a list or any sort of "rec me" lists.
