Volta are a four piece screamo/post-hardcore band from Italy. Their first release "ɒ" caught my attention back in 2013 - 6 tracks of awesome emotional screamo. In 2017 they released "Remap" - a full-length with 16 songs - and currently they are writing new stuff, stay tuned for that. Here you can find an interview with the band - https://www.inkoma.com/k/4720/.

Nausae was a short-lived atmospheric screamo five piece hailing from bochum, germany. One LP, one demo and a split with Pepi Rössler, Lora & Unable to Fully Embrace This Happiness were the beautiful output over a timespan of 3 years.

Something special today - one of my fav new bands covered one of my fav songs ever - "The Water Vs. The Anchor" by the legendary On The Might Of Princes. I was speechless when they showed me the song and the cover artwork - it was so ridiculously good and funny. You can feel that they love that song so much in every single second.
Message from the Band
"Hey Friends, we recorded a small cover of a wonderfull song and this is the short story behind it.
It all startet at the end of 2017 when our friends in Form und Leere gave us the advice that there will be a sampler collected with bands that cover their favourite Screamo songs. The sampler was planned by the lovely Jacopo of OJNE.
After we recorded the Song we realized, we were the only band that actually recorded something 😃
So after all these years the one song sampler will finally be released 😃
Thanks to Alex of miss the stars who was diretly responsible for this project and helped us
to show u what we have done!
For me (Steffen) On the might of princes is one of the Bands that changed my world completly.
My good friend Klaus of Trip Fontaine showed them to me when I was 13, I guess.
After over 14 years I still listen to Sirens and it made me loving songs with different parts and harmonies with screams and all this kind of stuff in this music world.
They even played a small show in Rodgau which is crazy hahah.
It was also the first time I got in touch with the DIY scene. So I would write them on myspace to ask them about their amps and stuff. AND THEY ANSWERED.
The Song was fun to play for all of us and we record it with our close friend Felix krois who also mixed and mastered it ❤.
Not the biggest project but it means a lot to us - and yes, it is nice after an album to see and feel where one of your biggest influences came from and try to honor this as a band.
Maybe you like it! (we tried to recreate the cover.. it works... kind of haha)
Thanks to all the people involved: Michael, Jacopo, Alex, Felix and all the lovely people of OTMOP
We hope we can share our two new songs with you this year - when our video is done we will 🙂
Have a great day and we hope u feel comfortable.
Rest in Peace Jason Rosenthal ❤"

We'll Dance Like Ghosts on Rooftops was a short-lived (2006 - 2008) screamo band from Cape Coral, FL. Raw, intense and for fans of Tunes for Bears to Dance To, Et Tu Brute etc.. Unfortunately only seven songs were recorded mostly at various house shows and long-dead venues - "Cake Soda" released them all on a discography tape.

Hiretsukan was a political screamo band hailing from New York. "End States" their only LP is still one of my fav screamo records. Forever stoked about the intensity of that band. Would've love to see them live. Members also played in Snollygoster and Forgetters.Download: mediafire

Isodora Crane was a short-lived screamo/violence band from California. They released in 2002 one outstanding hard, grindy, emotional screamo ep called "The Impossibilities Of A Static Universe" - and then turned later to experiment with indie, emo, post-rock. The first EP remains as a legendary "obscure" a++ blend of the best the genre had to provide.

Ten Grand (The Vidablue) was a legendary screamo band from the US. Active between 1998 and 2003 they released two records and a handful of singles, eps and splits (incl. The Khayembii Communiqué, Quatro) Still have the feeling they are super underrated.

Mádu was a short-lived four piece screamo band from Ukraine. Had the pleasure to release one of their tracks back in the days on a sampler called "Invasion USSR Сompilation". "Уходим мы все незаметно.../We're leaving gradually..." was their only record.

FlowersxOfxCarnage was an emoviolence band from Singapore. No bandpicture and just one release but one of the best ev releases you'll ever hear. If you dig Arse Moreira, Elesh Norn, Tentacles or Cease upon the capitol you'll love them.

wherebirdsmeettodie always amazed me. They have/had a great name, great lyrics and stunningly emotional catchy screamo songs. The four piece performed between 2013 & 2014 - and according to their facebook they might be doing something in the future again. "I'm Alone in This" is def a decade highlight for me.

Vorwärts Schöner Weltenkotzer was a short-lived four piece screamo band from germany. Always super underrated in my opinion. The name will be forever in the "top ten band names of all time". Members went on playing in for example Resurrectionists & Saligia. So great.

King's Girls were a four piece screamo/violence band from halifax, nova scotia / canada. Unfortunately they only recorded two releases - I think "Numbers" from 2013 made to the top of my end of the year list. They made unbelievable impressive short screamo songs. Gosh I miss them.

Petethepiratesquid was a four piece screamo/post-hardcore band from berlin. They released 9 records including some splits, inter alia with Dodewaard, Kias Fansuri, Shokei or Radio Burroughs. Great and important for the scene here.
Members played also in it.is.imperative, The Dropout Patrol, Ex Best Friends, and Magic Of The Rainbow.

Weak Wrists were a heavy five piece screamo/violence band hailing from North Carolina. The demo (available as download below) was already intense and ridiculously good - two years after, in 2016, the band released with their self-titled a milestone.

Dream Caste was a short-lived (2013 - 2014) four piece screamo band with members of Heritage Unit, Ten Thousand Leagues and Winter Break from California. Their only release "A Calmer Room" is a very emotional and intense blend of screamo, emo and punk.

Great three piece diy screamo/post-rock band from Ubud, Indonesia. Name is a reference to a The National song. Released one of their records - a split with Maskros, Kaji, Astrid and This Too Will Pass. Love them - check out if you dig Amukredam, daighila, Sjanse etc.

All My Wishes Were Thrown Down a Well and Should Die There were an A++ four piece screamo band from Cali. They put out six releases from October of 2014 till October of 2015. Loved the name, the tunes, the artworks - everything fitted. They were damn amazing.

Stunning five song screamo record by lyndixon released in 2006.
Special thanks to Erik and Sascha for making it happen - and sharing it.
Info from Erik - (Skramzjams - https://www.instagram.com/skramzjams/)
"Great DIY-gem with some emo-hardcore skramzy stuff!
A CDr with five tracks on it. The cd (mine marked 32?) comes in a small brown paper bag acting as sleeve/cover.
Small strip of tape with bands name on the front. Not sure if this is a demo or s-t or something else.. but think s-t works..
Two inserts: Number one with short information about the band, tracklist and some shoutouts.
Second one is called "lyndixon's songbook" and seems to contain some (?) of the lyrics.
Not sure if there's been a misprint and/or if it's intended/missing a page. "of a fire on the moon" on two pages for example.
... Keep it DIY!
