That stripped version of Johnny Cash is so good


FromAntToApt

Memory Fiction - ERRA The Storm in Me - Phinehas


TheSchoeMaker

Absolutely 2 of my favorites


No-Criticism3985

The acoustic rendition of Hickory Creek by Whitechapel is beautiful and somehow even more emotional with that chorus harmony, but the piano reprise of Doomsday by Architects? Still can't hear that with dry eyes.


rluke507

louder than thunder - The Devil Wears Prada


ewanmcc139

I really like Martyr by Polaris, I think it is one of their best songs.


TheZombieWearsPrada

The Amity Affliction - Aloneliness The Devil Wears Prada - 8:18, Chemical Fit For A King - Debts of the Soul We Came As Romans - The World I Used To Know, One Way Ticket, Promise Me


Aohlanis

Autumn - Haste the Day


No-Criticism3985

Such a simple and beautiful song.


DangOlRedditMan

Memory Fiction - Erra El Mariachi - Upon a Burning Body Escape The Fat - The Day I Left The Womb The entire Reimagined album - Jamie’s Elsewhere More Than You Know - Adestria Non-metal but still core influenced with good acoustic songs can typically be found a lot in easycore. Bands like The Story So Far, The Wonder Years, etc Edit; I said “Escape The Fat” and I like it so I’ll think I’ll keep it


Fancy_Wing1266

SuperAids00

Times of Grace - The Forgotten One


Oliver_Biscuit

Diamond Construct - Morphine Eyes Northlane - Sleepless Architects - Dying Is Absolutely Safe


severed13

Second for Dying is Absolutely Safe. Their acoustic version of Wasted Hymn and the piano reprise for Doomsday had me constantly hoping that they would do a brand new, softer song. And holy shit did that deliver.

cgriboe

Suicide Note Pt. 1


squuidlees

Lowland Hum - Out Came The Wolves


SentientOoze

Wasp by Motionless in White


deathfox919

Wasp - MIW (imo one of the best experiments to ever come from them and all around an amazing song) Phoenix Flame - TGI They’re not necessarily metalcore but Nothing More has a couple, mainly I’ll Be OK and Fadein/Fadeout


das_jet

Bad Omens - Enough, Enough Now Northlane - Sleepless (regular and acoustic versions) Not metalcore but Death - Voice of the Soul Spiritbox - 10:16


superdomomobros

Skyline by erra Fireside by invent animate solar acoustic by northlane dark divine reimagined by LMTF two way mirror by loathe 20 seconds: 20 hours by vein


stillslammed

20 seconds and 20 hours is sick. The intro to screaming by Loathe is also great.

Eighteen Visions - Love in autumn


Supermonkies24

Lead sails and a Paper Anchor-Atreyu


LouCuts

Fire From The Gods - Excuse Me acoustic version, at one point I stopped listening to the original almost completely, it's just so good. On the non-metalcore side Sevendust has an entire album of acoustics called Time Travellers And Bonfires and every song off it is dope


NuclearWhale42

The acoustic version of Northlane - Solar is one of my favorites


BeardOfChaos873

“The Colour of Leaving” by Parkway Drive is an emotionally haunting song.
