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.
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
4Bringing Down Broadway
Barely There

Honestly, this is just a closeted love of mine. No defending it, I just love this
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

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.
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.
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

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

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