    Alrighty then, people! I've been a metalcore fan for years, ever since I heard My Curse by Killswitch Engage. Since then, I've branched out into many other wonderful metalcore bands such as Bullet For My Valentine, All that Remains, Trivium, and Lamb of God.

    I just wondered what, in your opinion, is the best metalcore band?

    My answer is simple: Killswitch Engage. They will always have a special place in my heart for introducing me into what is now my favorite genre.

    Hmm, I don't know many Metalcore bands, not a big fan of the genre to be honest...

    I'm gonna say Bullet For My Valentine or Trivium becuase I know a few of their songs.

    Pantera aren't a metalcore band, they're thrash/groove metal.

    :p

    I like War of Ages; they're a Christian Metalcore band with some really awesome stuff. I wanted to stray away from the 'norms like KsE and AILD and other mainstream bands, so I ended up listening to these guys. I wouldn't say they're the best, but I like them. That's enough for me. :p

    To Hya: Killswitch Engage is not mainstream. I've never see any of their videos on MTV, which is the most mainstream music channel alive. Most of the people I've met have never even heard of KsE. They are not, and I say this for the last time, NOT mainstream.

    To Korn: Slipknot is nu metal, just so you know =P

    Huh. I could've sworn they were. Maybe I should've said "away from the 'more popular" bands" instead. I've been listening to a lot more God Forbid, so I'll change my previous answer to that instead.

    (Actually in Cali, KsE's pretty popular, concerning the Metalcore genre. Can't really blame me for thinking they were/are mainstream. :p)

    I would say the are more mainstream then a lot of bands out there. A lot of people I know, know who they are. They are probably more mainstream then any band I listen to. And just because they aren't played on MTV dosen't mean they aren't mainstream they have a lot of fans, and I think that makes them mainstream.

    But to stay on topic i'm not much of a fan.

    Avenged Sevenfold assuming the kids of today still class them as Metalcore. Probably the only real band i listen to from that genre.

    After A7x's new album, I would classify them more along the lines of Hard Rock.
    *Cough* Sellouts *Cough, cough*

    And Korn, Slipknot isn't metalcore. They're nu metal. There's a difference =P

    guys u really need to look outside the usa for bands

    some of the best metalcore music is coming out of australia such as Parkway Drive and I killed The Prom Queen

    Though lamb of god rule
     
  18. people saying trivium, a7x, and any other band like that ar complete idiots. In fact metlcore is a shitty genre as a whole.

    Trivium and a7x are just plain shit.

    Trivium..

    I like Trivium, on some sites their genre is metalcore so ya I listen to that sh*t. All That Remains is a pretty decent band, can't remember what their genre is. Alexisonfire is a sweet band too, even though they are Canadian.:thumb: I also listen to KoRn even though everyone will probably say that they suck because they're nothing compared to these hardcore metal bands.
