    K, I'm lookin for some good heavy as fuck catchy metalcore with digital production. I'd like to avoid shitty whiny clean vox. Normal clean vocals are fine, but no emo shit please.

    Go!

    The only metalcore I'm really familiar with is DevilDriver, but they kick ass, and they satisfy your conditions, so check them out. First album is best, I think. I still need to listen to their latest, though.

    First album is not their best. The new one is their best, so listen to it now punk!

    I often feel that the dorkish pop-punk clean vocals of metalcore are the only bad thing about it, if they'd just do normal clean vocals then it wouldn't sound "teh gaye" at all. Ya'll probably disagree with that though.

    Anyway, maybe check out Chimaira's self-titled album from 2005. I only listened to it a couple of times but I think I recall it being very dark and heavy, and I think they might have gotten rid of the clean vocals entirely. Don't quote me on that though. Ya know what, I'll listen to it again and get back to you about whether it fits or not.

    I second the reccomendation for DevilDriver and definetly go for their newest album. Some consider it to be straight melodic death metal though, so maybe it won't be core enough for you, heh. And surely you know about Lamb of God but I do believe that fits your description, no clean vocals.

    But if you want the stuff to be heavy as fuck you should probably go for some deathcore, no? All Shall Perish and Despised Icon are pretty kickass. Icon includes some hardcore punk vocals but that's a far cry from anything emoesque.

    These guys are crap.
    Seconding the Chimaira rec. Also, The Confession are more melodic than heavy but pretty good. And furthermore, Thy Will Be Done.
