Deathcore that doesn't suck

So I'm a death metal guy. Love tech death. Love prog. I'm into that stuff. I've never really liked deathcore at all. Not to be "tr00" or anything like that. Just haven't liked any. But I have recently found one deathcore band that I enjoy. They are called The Contortionist. They are a deathcore band that have lot's of really proggy elements. And they dont mindlessly chug. And while they use 8 strings, they use them well. It isn't a gimmick. This is an example of what they sound like: this
My question for you guys is are there other bands like this? Deathcore bands that really don't stuff. Preferably proggy stuff or technical stuff.

Carnifex are somewhat decent. Annotations of an Autopsy and Job for a Cowboy aren't bad either. Context: I much prefer death metal to deathcore

Usually when people claim to like 'technical' or 'prog' death metal it means they're anything but 'true', however being a poseur myself I shall indulge you with recs:.

Veil of Maya


Born of Osiris


The Faceless (Early)

We have a Deathcore thread. Search it and ask there, they'll point you in the right direction.

Despised Icon are far and away the best band to come out of Deathcore.

I think the newest All Shall Perish is pretty decent. It isn't unique or anyhing like that, but it's pretty solid for what it is.

The Contortionist only use 7s, and they mindlessly chug as much as Suicide Silence, they're just smart enough to hide it with pretty leads. This coming from a fan of them.

Anyway,

Shadow of the Colossus - Shadow of the Colossus
The Red Chord - Prey For Eyes or Clients
Despised Icon - The Ills of Modern Man
The Faceless - Akeldama
Animosity - Empires or Animal, it doesn't matter, both are awesome
Whitechapel - The Somatic Defilement (closest to real death metal the scene has ever gotten)
Ascariasis - Ocean of Colour
Born of Osiris - The Discovery (The New Reign is a better album, but you'll prefer their last one)
Ovid's Withering - Anything, really. The Cloud Gatherer EP is solid, but their new tracks are sounding even better so, just raid their bandcamp.
Fallujah - The Harvest Wombs
Fall in Archaea - Gatherings
Substructure - Monolith
Structures - All of the Above
All Shall Perish - The Price of Existence
Thy Art is Murder - Hate
Aversions Crown - Servitude


Or, just listen to The Black Dahlia Murder's Nocturnal, and Suicide Silence's [/i]The Cleansing[/i] back to back for the same experience.

**** everything TBDM has done and listen to 'Helping The World To See' by Vehemence.

Actually, forget the entire list and just listen to that album.

I would agree with this.

Tbh, I really never got that much into Deathcore (at least the modern brand of it).

Edit:
Btw, wtf do a lot of Deathcore "vocalists" look like they're trying to be wiggers?!

Thy Art Is Murder - The Adversary, Hate (The Adversary is FAR more death metal than Hate).
Veil Of Maya - [id], Eclipse (total mind**** of a band rhythmically, you'll like them. Cool chordal things too.)
The Acacia Strain - Continent, Wormwood, 3750 (start with Wormwood, there are some CATCHY tracks on there)

As far as "old brand" deathcore... Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Pantera. Those 3 combined with At The Gates=a lot of deathcore.

Only deathcore I've ever gotten into really would be Upon A Burning Body. I'm not into much of any -core though to begin with.

I've only listened to Empires a few years ago, didn't really hold any of my attention :/

Out of curiosity I searched deathcore on my itunes and I was surprised none of the artists in my library were tagged

But uuh, these guys are close enough >.> I suppose they're a sort of technical death grindcore or something, but the breakdowns and tongue in cheek nature really make it seem pretty deathcore to me. Now I feel like this is one of the directions djent COULD have taken Listening to them for more than like, half an hour makes me feel like I'm having my brain drilled with an elaborately mathematical form of stupid, but I love dat breakdown. Sounds like every computer in the world crashing and a massive nuclear meltdown

That video was good, but it doesn't have enough j-pop influence for my liking.
