La ciencia

La ciencia

Fantastic 5-song debut ep, this one kills. La ciencia aka science is made up of mistakes is a really new 3-piece screamo from Madrid, Spain with members of the brilliant Eros + Massacre. In my eyes they seem to utter fulfill every screamo/emo fans dream. Harsh and high-pitched screaming covered in a heartwarming and melodic sound. Think of La Quiete,… more »

wherebirdsmeettodie - I'm alone in this

Wherebirdsmeettodie

for the aggressively depressed” – Couldn’t describe it any better. wherebirdsmeettodie are an intense 90′s inspired screamo/emo band from Uniontown/Pennsylvania. “I’m Alone in This EP” is a blend of pure beauty, pain and desperation in 4 acts. For me the beauty of their debut EP lies between every single phrase and chord. Especially the last song “First Snow” is getting… more »

Ken Burns

Ken Burns

No bandcamp. No soundcloud. No facebook. No mysp…oh forget that. Just a 4-song tape and a mail-address. It’s hard to collect any information about Ken Burns. What I know is that they are a new amazing screamo outfit hailing from Boston with members of Houston We Have a Problem, Who Goes There?, Sneeze, Apart and ex-The Saddest Landscape. Which seems… more »

Nostalgia del Absoluto

Nostalgia del Absoluto

Some awesome terrific devastating and noisy hardcore/screamo stuff from Madrid, Spain. Their s/t titled debut was pretty solid too, but this EP totally kills it, especially the production is much more intense. Alberto, Jorge, Juan and Miguel have written little fucked up hymns about regrets and inner struggles always overflowing you with this incredible and staggering heaviness. Exploding amalgam of… more »

Death Of Youth - Scheitern

Death Of Youth

New powerful 4-piece dark hardcore punk band from mainz/germany. They currently released their debut EP “Lichter”. Definitely a group to keep an eye on if you dig stuff like Afterlife Kids, Fjort or maybe Loxiran. Check out the nice black and white video for “Scheitern” below. “Flucht nach vorn, Und meine Lungen brennen. Stehen vorm Abgrung, halten Lichter hinein. Wenn… more »

moonassi - Fact, Fiction and Everything in Between.

moonassi

Yeeeeeees. Stunning new 4 piece screamo band from austin. Love the old school-vibe and aesthetic in this one, the heart-rending lyrics, high-pitched screams and fitting band-photos. As if Saetia and Elesh Norn would be one band. Great. “Pointless photographs that I have, reflecting how long I have been here. Each journey was so short lived, but each step taken was… more »

Nausae - The Hue, A Veil | Screamo

Nausae

Short but important one. “When the glory of the sun is dimmed at last…” the strong opening words from “The Hue, A Veil” the debut album by bochum based screamo/emotive hardcore band Nausae which could be a small blueprint for the local scene. Close to french screamo a la Amanda Woodward but with a special touch of unbiasedness. Each scream… more »

ancst - in turmoil

Ancst

Probably my favourite metal release this year besides the new Fórn and Pray for teeth records. Ancst is a blackened crust, dark hardcore inspired melodic black metal collective from berlin with ex-/members of bands like Call Me Betty, Henry Fonda or Disschrist. I got into this band around late 2012 when I first heard their demo, which was an awesome… more »

Toska

Toska

Woooah. Hefty and furious stuff from Philadelphia with members of Hot Cross, Nema, The Scarlet Letter, Monster X, Stations, To Tremble, Stockpile and Tigon. Yep this list reads pretty well and Toska is really no bummer. Their debut ep is one hell of a dark bastard and every song is a devastating piece between hardcore, violence and maybe crust with… more »

Under A Sky So Blue

Under A Sky So Blue

Damn. This is some kick-ass screamo from Athens, Georgia. Another Off Cloud Nine Diamond. Under A Sky So Blue. A name like a movie or poetry. Brilliant.

So you definitely know what to expect. Heartfelt, desperate and emotive… more »
