All My Wishes Were Thrown Down a Well and Should Die There

All My Wishes Were Thrown Down a Well and Should Die There

I’m a huge fan of long band names such as “i wrote haikus about cannibalism in your yearbook“, “fear before the march of flames” or “iwontstopwonderinguntilyoustopbreathing“, so yeah this 3 piece band called “All My Wishes Were Thrown Down a Well and Should Die There” really caught my attention with its first release “In Hopes of a New Tomorrow” haha…. more »

Lost Limbs

Lost Limbs

Amazing new three piece screamo band from Glasgow, Scotland. They really seem to love old french/italian screamo, you can hear influences from bands like Daitro, Aussitot Mort or Raein, which is awesome, but Lost Limbs are also combining those elements with cool indie/spoken/melodic – parts. A+ mix of the best ingredients. “Calm at the Cusp” and “Retrouvailles” are both hella… more »

Miss The Stars Fest II

PYLON - Mixtape

PYLON

PYLON is a nice litte distro and mailorder from Vienna. They currently released a wonderful mixtape with bands like Lorraine, Stillborn or El Camino Car Crash which is dedicated against religious and political persecution & violence. An important subject and definitely worth supporting. You can check out the digital version here or below. A physical mixtape is in the making… more »

Vi som älskade varandra så mycket

Vi som älskade varandra så mycket

This record is on another level. Damn, I’m totally stoked. Vi som älskade varandra så mycket is a 6-piece screamo band hailing from sweden and they are one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet and work with. It still bothers me that I almost missed the whole live-set at the Miss The Stars Fest. Well… more »

Captain Planet - 27.02-Bi NUU Berlin

Captain Planet

No screamo or violence this time. I’m very thrilled to announce that I’m going to present the berlin concert of my favourite band Captain Planet at the Bi Nuu on the 27th of february 2015 along with the great blog lieblingstape.de. Thanks so much for this opportunity, can’t honestly describe how much I love this band. Their record “Wasser kommt,… more »

Chuck Bass

Making Waves

Split releases of three and more bands can end up either perfectly matching or hella odd. “Making Waves” is definitley one of the 1st category. A project, a wonderful way to connect and introduce screamo bands from coastal towns all over the world. Brillant idea by the lovely diy-labels Chloromethane Recs. and Tief In Marcellos Schuld. Every band contributed 2… more »

Kilgore Trout

Kilgore Trout

Another old post from last year but anyway this is still fuckin A. 4 seconds of the first track were enough to know this EP would be a killer. Amazing abrasive 4-piece screamo/violence band from annandale, virginia (formed in 2008). They play some heartfelt tunes with a grindy-edge somewhere between Usurp Synapse, aspergers, CTTS, The Usual and Burn her letters…. more »

dream caste

Dream Caste

Whooooa. DC are like an underground – screamo – emo – post – whatever – supergroup hailing from California. Members also played in bands like Ezra, Summer Vacation, Ten Thousand Leagues, Moldar or La Bella. It’s their very first demo and damn…”A Calmer Room” is a 5-track-killer – chaotic, quite melodic, rough produced and super-catchy. I especially love “It’s A… more »
