The Best Metalcore Bands

List Criteria: Upvote your favorite metalcore bands

Metalcore artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good metalcore bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top metalcore bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Metalcore groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all metalcore bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest metalcore bands of all time, since the most famous metalcore artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best metalcore music.

You can click on the metalcore band names to see more information about that particular notable metalcore group. If they're near the top of the best metalcore artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top metalcore bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the metalcore band names themselves.

List contains artists like Mike Portnoy and Disturbed. Any artists you vote for graduate closer to the top of the list. Is Joey Jordison a better choice for the top of the list than As I Lay Dying? Vote accordingly.

All important, significant and iconic names in metalcore music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new metalcore bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of metalcore, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into metalcore music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good metalcore bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent metalcore bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best metalcore bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest metalcore musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular metalcore bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Share this list with your friends to make sure we get a great list going. (152 items)
