I'm trying to find more good deathcore bands for my ipod. Currently my favorite is Chelsea Grin ( example - http://youtu.be/7ca6B2uMCoc ). I also listen to Suicide Silence/Older Bring Me The Horizon.

I'm wanting more Deathcore bands, could anyone suggest a few? Hopefully close to Chelsea Grin, I like a nice mix of low and high screams, mostly high. Pig squeals are pretty cool too.

I tried Born Of Orsis or however it's spelt. But tho nice, i couldn't get into it.

Any help?

I prefer the more technical/progressive/melodic metal bands. If you don't have Opeth, you should get their music, possibly the only death metal I can tolerate.

I've actually heard their stuff. And it's pretty good. I might look more into them.

Some would say that's an oxymoron.

As far as deathcore bands go, the bands that you listed are actually what I consider to be the worst of the bunch. Try these: Thy Art is Murder Conducting From the Grave All Shall Perish Salt the Wound Suffokate Carthage Whitechapel

Just listen to death metal. If it HAS to be deathcore, Veil of Maya and The Contortionist.

All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, Black Dahlia Murder, etc are ones I recommend, regardless of whether you're into deathcore or not.

BMTH's debut album was insane. Their new stuff is horrible. I dont listen to much, but Im partial to Suicide Silence, WhiteChapel, and Carnifex.

And dont forget! if you can read the logo, your band is not core enough.

Man so many people who listen to metal are hipsters. At least none of you are huge black metal fans, they're like the hipsters of the hipsters.

Well you could give Parkway Drive a try, although they're really more Metalcore.  Also you might like The Acacia Strain.

They begun as a deathcore band, though I think only their first album is deathcore (they pretty much were playing a new sub genre every release). The only deathcore band I can stand is The Contortionist and Veil of Maya. Fallujah also begun as a blackened deathcore band but then moved on to technical death metal, and as such, improved dramatically.

Found allot of good bands out of this. Chelsea grin still ended up being my favorite out of them. But they beat all my other bands.

As far as deathcore bands go, the bands that you listed are actually what I consider to be the worst of the bunch. Try these:

Thy Art is MurderMarfoo

The Adversary only though. It's real good and some of the best deathcore I've heard (obviously I'm more of a metal/grind/crust guy). Another mainstream deathcore band that released a one-off album that I enjoyed was Carnifex. Hell Chose Me had a nice guitar tone, the lyrics and thematic moved beyond childish whining, and the songs were far more dynamic than anything they previously did. Then they released a turd afterwards.

As for the assessment on Chelsea Grin and such being the worst in the subgenre, he's pretty much spot-on.

Just listen to death metal. If it HAS to be deathcore, Veil of Maya and The Contortionist.Guppy507
The Contortionist is pretty solid djentcore. Exoplanet is key.

More like nerds of the nerds, or is that folk metal? I can't remember...

Anyway if you ever want to listen to the sound of deathcore kiddies being dismembered and their limbs being used as drum sticks on the kit of the brutal death gods, here you go.

Zyklon

ArmoredCore55

Zyklon and Black Dahlia Murder are the only bands in this topic that I like and neither are deathcore.
