Melodeath/Post Hardcore Recos

I've been trying out melodeath lately and while I dig the musical style of the stuff I've heard, I don't really enjoy the vocal delivery. Basically, what I am trying to find is the style of melodeath/metalcore with more of a post hardcore vocal delivery (more sing/scream style instead of all scream). I have tried to do some research on my own but haven't had much luck. Here is a list of stuff I listen that's in the post hardcore/metalcore area and at the end are the melodeath albums I've tried out.
1Thrice
The Artist in the Ambulance


One of my favorite post hardcore albums, I think it was one of the first I ever listened to. Also really like Illusion of Safety and Vheissu.
2Alexisonfire
Crisis


Another favorite in the post hardcore genre. Love the sing/scream vocal swaps of Green and Pettit. Watch Out is also a great release from them.
3Funeral for a Friend
Welcome Home Armageddon


Another favorite post hardcore release. Clean vocals can be a little weak at times, but otherwise good stuff.
4Strung Out
Exile in Oblivion


The album is kind of split between hardcore and pop punk and I'm not really sure what these guys are considered (mostly punk I think), but I dig the heavier side of this album.
5Avenged Sevenfold
Waking the Fallen


Not a huge fan of these guys, but I dig this release. The guitarist are pretty great, but the vocals are kind of iffy.
6Haste the Day
Attack of the Wolf King


I have most of their stuff, they are a little hit and miss. This is probably their best offering before they split up.
7Killswitch Engage
As Daylight Dies


Pretty good metalcore band and have a decent ratio of singing to screaming with some really nice guitar work.
8Cave In
White Silence


I really like the metalcore sections of this album. The band is very experimental and typically succeeds in whatever they try.
9Silverstein
Discovering the Waterfront


When they focus on heavier, more technical songwriting and do screaming/singing vocal swaps they are pretty good, but their lighter stuff isn't the best and the clean vocals are kind of bad.

left blank.
11Insomnium
Above the Weeping World


These 3 are the melodeath albums I've tried out. Love the guitar parts on the tracks I listened to, but I just couldn't get into the vocal style.
12In Flames
The Jester Race
13In Flames
Whoracle


If anything jumps out to you based off what I've said and listed, go ahead and rec me some stuff if you want. I'd appreciate it.
