1. Bayside- anthony is just an amazing singer and songwriter. All the band members are good, and their music just has that awesome feel to it. And they're sick live.
2. Silverstein- amazing vocals as well, shane is just..idk, I'm in love. :D lyrically amazing.
3. Avenged Sevenfold- matt's voice is one in a million and they're musically gifted like no other. From the rev on drums (rip buddy) down to zack and the other boys.
4. Alesana- I really appreciate their music and I love shawn. :) and dennis. <3 and I love how they take a story from greek mythology and turn it into a song. That's talent. I love nero's decay and ambrosia which is a song based on king midas and his golden touch. Their latest album, the emptiness is one big story. Taken from an edgar allen poe poem. Who else can take one poem and turn it into a whole bad a** album?
5. I can't really think of another band to put in this slot. Well, I can..plenty, but none that just do it for me like the above mentioned.
