This list idea basically came from me listening to a Counterparts song on a bus, which was followed by a Saints Never Surrender song, which I mistakenly thought was a Counterparts song. I guess this just goes on to show how there are some bands that go hand in hand; if you like one of them, you like the other. Anyways, this list will consist of a few bands that should be paired.
The first pair of the series. This is quite an obvious one, since Counterparts take influence from Saints Never Surrender.
|2||Saints Never Surrender|
Listen to: Counterparts - The Sanctuary and Saints Never Surrender - Companion
|3||As I Lay Dying|
The Powerless Rise
This one is quite unfair, since both the bands play your usual brand of metalcore, but I feel that they are really similar in terms of vocals. However, As I Lay Dying tends to have more solos, while Haste the Day focuses more on the breakdowns.
|4||Haste the Day|
Attack of the Wolf King
Listen to: As I Lay Dying - Vacancy and Haste the Day - Travesty
This pair may arise from the fact that I discovered both bands at the same time, and just felt that the only separating factor is the Christian faith. They both have the high vocals above of the catchy melodic guitar lines.
|6||Secret and Whisper|
Great White Whale
Listen to: Saosin - It's Far Better to Learn and Secret & Whisper - XOXO
|7||Closure in Moscow|
A wild appearance of an Australian band; soaring vocal melodies alongside jazzy alternative music.
|8||Children of Nova|
The Complexity of Light
Listen to: Closure in Moscow - Kissing Cousins and Children of Nova - Arcaedion
This band has received a lot of attention and for good reason too. They have taken the whole spacey-deathcore vibe and incorporated it into metalcore. Forever Orion may have weaker cleans and less replay value, but the song Answers really shows the similarities.
Passion. Love. Harmony.
Listen to: Erra - White Noise and Forever Orion - Answers
Capture & Embrace
As soon as I heard this band, I knew right away why I liked them; I like Hundredth too. The vocals, song structures and melodies are very similar.
Listen to: It Prevails - Trials and Tribulations and Hundredth - Weathered Town
The final pair of the series. Both bands play soft indie music, with high vocals, as well as female vocal appearances.
Listen to: Lydia - This is Twice Now and Deas Vail - Desire
