Converge are the Black Sabbath of metalcore. They are easily #1. The Dillinger Escape Plan is easily #2. Botch is more popular than Earth Crisis, and both have similar influence/impact, so Botch should be #3 and Earth Crisis #4.
There is an obvious distinction between metalcore and melodic metalcore. One is metal influenced hardcore, and the other is hardcore influenced metal. When I originally made this list I based the selections for each list off of metal-archives, because I'm lazy.
Underoath certainly belongs on the "metalcore" list. I, having heard the majority of their albums, feel as if they should here. Basing an opinion of a band off a few singles is kind of ignorant, after all if one had only heard Metallica's "Mama Said" one would think they were a country rock band. HORSE the Band are also a metalcore band, just with more electronic influences present. In fact, all these bands are considered metalcore.
Coming from me, who listens to more metalcore and melodic metalcore than anyone on this site, don't remove any bands from the list. It does need rearranged, but yeah. Also, remove "Deathcore" from the thread title, unless you also want to include "Mathcore" in it.
Well alright... and just for the record, I have three Underoath albums
I sure as hell don't listen to any of them anymore though.
Also, there are a few Deathcore bands that are on the Melocore list (I think Despised Icon is one). Shouldn't they be moved here?
