A Metalcore List

Was never deep into metalcore, but here’s some of the stuff I used to love during my metalcore phase circa 2015 – 2016. This list is in no order.
1Bullet for My Valentine
The Poison


The band that introduced me to metalcore. “The Poison” and BFMV in general are less breakdown oriented with an emphasis on melodic vocals and catchy tunes. Somewhat of an anomaly for me because at the time of my phase I was basically searching for the bands with the sweetest breakdowns. I remember loving every song on the album because they were unique in their own way and they had good vocals and guitar solos.
2Bring Me The Horizon
Sempiternal


I don’t really care at all for the genre nowadays to be frank but if there were to be a discussion for best metalcore album of all time, this would have to be considered. It’s a standout release of the last decade of metalcore that incorporates everything metalcore is about. Nice cleans, screams, lyrics, breakdowns, and a sort of atmosphere that isn’t replicated in most metalcore records. The album was my favorite for about a year. To this day I can’t name a record of the genre to feature such memorable songs unique amongst each other. All of which can be recalled several years later.
3Of Mice and Men
The Flood


As stated earlier, it was mainly breakdowns I was after, and this album offered potentially more than any other record I have heard. Austin Carlile was one of the best at his craft and didn’t hold back on the record. I particularly liked “The Depths” and “Ben Threw”, but I pretty much liked most tracks. It was right up my alley at the time and quenched my desire for endless breakdowns.
4Motionless in White
Reincarnate


This band was my favorite for a big chunk of my metalcore phase and this was my favorite album by them. I really liked Chris’s vocals and the almost symphonic sounding electronic elements. Best tracks were the title track, and “Break the Cycle” amongst others but it had its fair share of lame tracks too like the embarrassment “Everybody Sells Cocaine”. Thank God I don’t listen to this scene band anymore.
5Motionless in White
Creatures


A solid debut and another genre staple. It contained many of the bands more notable songs like “Immaculate Misconception”. Pretty inconsistent though for my liking at the time, I was content with listening to pretty much only the first half of the album.
6Blind Witness
Nightmare on Providence Street


The best album on the list, and the only one I would still listen to. Good Canadian band Blind Witness produced an iconic record that is fundamentally metalcore but with obvious hints of deathcore. That’s probably why I like it so much. The best song is “All Alone” which many just know for the meme but if you give the whole track a chance you’d see is a brilliant, well-rounded song. Also, equally good was “Baby One More Notch” with a breakdown that has become perhaps one of the best in metalcore. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!?
