So hyped for this. Keratin is a new five screamo/emotive hardcore band from Melbourne, Australia with ex-/members of Gil Cerrone, To The North, Quiet Steps, Hraun, Septic Surge, and Stress Waves.
"Survive snake" is track number four from the debut EP "Only Eye" that is gonna be released by Tomb Tree on December 5th. The track is so beautiful, cathartic and heavy at the same time - it's just stunning - also how they blend together 90's, early 2000's and today's screamo elements. Can't wait to hear the full EP - and hope you enjoy the song as much as I do.
Everything was recorded mid - late 2022 by Simon Maisch at a storage shed in Brunswick, Melbourne and mastered by James Plotkin (Plotkin Works).

.minmo is a new emoviolence band from serbia and well these are pretty much all the infos I have unfortunately - nothing on lastfm, discogs, ratemymusic or else. Besides that - the music is damn good - very raw, fast and kinda lo-fi-atmospheric, if that makes sense - and it feels really dark.
If anybody has information on this let me know.

"Sad songs for almost happy people"
CAGES is a new five piece screamo/emotive hardcore band from Ludwigsburg, Germany - and I'm so thrilled to make an exclusive full stream of their debut EP called "Second Thoughts". The members played in some of my fav diy bands - We Had A Deal, Rêche and Schönleben - so it's kinda a diy-supergroup.
"Second Thoughts" is a thriving ode to diy and punk - raw, highly emotional and heartfelt. They took the best ingredients from the decades and put them in these five amazing songs. Everything was mastered by scene legend Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios and released by these lovely labels - Through Love Rec., Middle-Man Rec., Shove Rec. and Long Legs Long Arms Distr.
schwarzer.rand did again a brilliant job on the artwork and the vinyl packaging - check the website for more - just love everything he does.
Hope you all like this release as much as I do. Enjoy.

Bayonette was an incredible three piece diy screamo band from berlin. Unfortunately they only released one demo in 2017 and played one / max hand-ful of concerts. Had the pleasure of seeing them live and that was just stunning - so much raw energy - it filled the whole room. I don't think the demo made a big round in the scene sadly - hope some people gonna find it now and enjoy it.

moldmouth is a one person screamo/skramgaze band from Illinois/USA. Founded at the beginning of 2022 mm plays such an interesting and intense blend of screamo, black metal and violence - that its actually hard to put in any specific category - one tag on the bandcamp page is for example "post screamo", kind of a good description tbh. For being so relatively new mm put out a lot of stuff already including two splits - one with Homeskin and the other with My Hair is a Rat's Nest - pretty sick. Download is for the latest release "seven lines".

Very short lived screamo/emoviolence band from Missouri/USA. Found them on a sampler years ago and unfortunately totally forgot about them. Forgot how damn good they were. There are not many infos around about the band - I know that the four piece played with bands like Malevich, ZETA and Gif from God during the active months but yeah, that's bascially it. Someone wrote "A supergroup of sorts" - if anyone has more details let me know and I'm gonna add it.

ONLY is a new screamo band from Berlin. They are working on their first EP - can't wait to hear it. Don't have any more info but looking forward to see them live tomorrow as support for Tenue and soastasphrenas.

After seeing Wax Vessel announcing the vinyl release of With the Eyes of Conrad Veidt - I thought it would be a good time to remind people on this screamo project from yehonala tapes - Picnick in the Center of a Glasstornado.
Both mentioned bands were run by Tom which most of you probably know from his other bands like Afterlife Kids, Ancst, Call Me Betty or Henry Fonda.
The PITCOAG EP was released around 2006 and is full of powerful screamo / post-hardcore killer tracks.

Made a screamo/emoviolence spotify playlist. 9h and over 200 songs so far. updating regularly. ❤

Heavily excited to present you the stunning single "Sturm" by brand new black metal/blackgaze/post-metal/shoegaze outfit Nessel from Stuttgart/Germany.
Nessel is a five piece band with ex-/members of Knife Eyes, Mahlstrom, Thurm and Archivist - of which all are/were great. If you are familiar with them already you probably can get good image of how Nessel sounds - beautiful, massive and post-gaze-everything - in the best way possible.
Their debut full-length "Gestalt" is gonna be released via I.Corrupt.Records & Through Love Records in Germany - Fireflies Fall in France and Clever Eagle Records in the US on vinyl on the 9th of September.
There will also be a limited Tape available via Natural Resources from Hamburg which you can see down below.
Nessel really did an amazing job on every single level - the music is top-notch, the artworks/ pictures/videos etc are aesthetic as hell and the labels involved are A+++.

Incredible new two piece screamo/emoviolence band from Karlsruhe/Germany (David and Daniel are also play in Lypurá). They describe their music as "this is an emotional rollercoaster thrown off the rails" - and that is pretty accurate. So so good. The beginning of "II" is btw everything.
If you like kishote, piri reis etc - you def gonna dig it.

Leg Day is a three piece emo/screamo band from Lancaster/USA with ex-members of French In Van. If you still search for the perfect screamo summer soundtrack - there you go. "Imagination & Delusion" is a comp with everything they released so far since 2017. Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

xcxdxrx is a new six piece screamo/violence band from Bogotá, Colombia with members of Basuraastillada. This is just beautiful. If you love low-fi, raw sound with sometimes high-pitched screams - this is for you. The record is pure love - and they even covered Tigersuit.

View of a Burning City was a short-lived six piece screamo band from Lafayette, Louisiana - active between 2002 and 2004. Definitley a hidden gem - that band was next level incredible. For all fans of I Would Set Myself On Fire For You, Elsamort, Eyes Like Black Stars, Envy etc.
Put in "Tales Told Before the Waking Hour" and their "S/T" record in the download - I think that's all they recorded - but not completely sure.

Honestly so stoked about this music video premiere for "The Shape of Harm" by Blind Girls from their new record "The Weight of Everything". Blind Girls are a five piece screamo band from Australia and one of the best to ever to it. Band is killing it for years and years - and the music is all in all beyond.
Screamo needs more music videos in general I think - so this is just really really awesome.
Listen to the whole record here (Zegema Beach Records, Life Lair Regret, Left Hand Label).
Love them so much, hope you do too - enjoy.

A.S.T.R.O was a short-lived five piece screamo band hailing from Paris.
Between 2007 and 2009 they released two EP on CD - "The Shaped Lines" and "FROM MY WINDOW". Just based on the last.fm listen-sessions, discogs numbers etc - I think A.S.T.R.O were/are highly under the radar.
Really dig them - and they definitely inspired by crust and post-hardcore stuff - which makes the whole sound very interesting. "Modernism" and "Joining fate" are screamo hits. Oh and I love the guitar work ✨

Schwere Artillerie was a short-lived four piece experimental screamo band hailing from Grenoble, France. Their 2005 released EP "Brutal Bebop Show" is a super catchy mix between Saetia, The Murder of Rosa Luxemburg and Blood Brothers. Screamo with Keyboard rules. If these things are in any case your taste, please check them out - its funny, rough and just really really good.

I remembered by accident a tape I bought about twelve years ago - and thought I have to post this awesome band. The tape was the discography of Dancing On Debris - a five-piece screamo band hailing from Aachen in Germany that split up in 2011. Members were in bands like Longing For Tomorrow or ◯.
The download is not the discography because I didn't had anything to rip the tape but I found old mp3s.
Dark, heavy and super powerful - that's how their one and only LP "...Of Our Self-Made Collapse", released in 2009, sounds like. Hope you dig it as much as I do - it's basically 35 minutes of soul crushing screamo/hardcore. Enjoy.

Stoked to be part of PremieRing #2 and to present you a new song by Piet Onthel from the 4-way split cassette by Demersal, Letterbombs, Piet Onthel, and Vientre released by Tomb Tree and Witch Elm.
Piet Onthel is a one person emoviolence/screamo/post-hardcore band hailing from Kuantan, Malaysia and was founded in 2018. Since that time PO put out seven releases incl. splits with i.a Amitié, Scenes We Have Missed, Bastos and Children Of Boredom - with a huge amount of great songs. Besides Piet Onthel - Mashi Mierul is/was involved in a lot of other projects such as Singular, Star Order, Hellisforsinister, Dizguzted, Cantilever and Quarter Life.
Now let's talk about the split and the new track called "Fable" - damn - it is amazing - heavy, fast and yet melodic. "The lyrics tells the story of how some human beings are cruel and greedy towards their fellow human beings. In contrast to the nature of animals where it is more sentimental in nature even though it has no sense." - Mierul states.
Every band has 2 songs on the split, they all sick - highly recommend to get one of these cassettes.
Well done to everyone involved in that release.

Stoked to present you all the new utterly beautiful single by finnish screamo outfit Alas. The Jyväskylä based four piece is killing it since 2020 and pretty quickly made themselves a name in the scene with an amazing first EP and two splits (with To Be Gentle, Armywives, Mirin Bide and Claire Voyancé).
"Uusi Vuosi" is the first output from the upcoming record which will be released in summer by zilpzalp records, Zegema Beach Records, Larry Records and Voice of the Unheard.

Literally no idea whats going on with this Skramz/Emoviolence project from São /Paulo, Brazil but they keep releasing stunning stuff on a monthly bases. Had them in my End-Of-The-Year post already and damn - everything evolves more and more - sound, artwork etc.. If the band reads this article by accident: can't wait for a full length and I hope that they get way more listeners (last.fm at the moment 8). seriously this is beyond.

Ok Boomer are finally back. The band from Trujillo/Perú astounded me some months ago with their first single Gira Soles - which was some awesome fresh midwest-emo/screamo/post-rock blend. "Flora de la Estepa Extinta" is the new EP and it just hits with the same perfect vibe with which they started everything. Peru has such a nice diy emo/screamo scene - with bands like LÖRI, Maria, Fiesta Bizarra etc. - Ok Boomer is no exception at all - what a great band.
