  • Colors – Palindromes (2010)
    By on October 8th, 2010 | 124 Comments124 Comments Comments

    bitrate: 320 kBit/s
    genre: Screamo
    country: USA
    notes: Colors is a dissonant/chaotic screamo band from Denver, Colorado. For me it’s a perfect mix between what I love about Saetia and Jeromes Dream. They definitely have their own unique sound, however. They recently had an interview featured on Nature With No Plagues which I highly recommend checking out. The dudes are super nice and the music is super amazing in every respect. Don’t miss out on this.

    notes: ColorChromatic is a skramz-esque band from California. So many good releases this year. This is definitely one to add to that list. Some of you might not even call this screamo but who cares good music is good music. Elements of punk rock, hardcore, and rock are present. Definitely check it out.

    notes: viceversa is a screamo/hardcore band from Denmark. Fast guitar drumming, sing along parts, and sections of complete chaos make this band extremely fun to listen to. Reminds me of Calculator + Saetia. Definitely pick this amazing release up.

  • Meat Truck Mix Tape – Suicide Is The Answer (2010)

    bitrate: 320 kBit/s
    genre: Death Metal/Grindcore
    country: USA
    notes: Here’s something very different from what I usually post but it was kindly submitted. I don’t have a wide range to or experience with any types of metal or grindcore so I don’t have a lot to compare this with. But it’s pretty fucking cool. Meat Truck Mix Tape is a solo project by Vladimir Gutterslut (thanks for the links!)  from Kenosha, WI. I’m impressed by the fact that this a solo project. It’s definitely an interesting release worth checking out if you’re into metal! Just look at that fucking album cover, come on.

  • William Bonney – Fall Demo (2010)

    genre: Emo/Screamo/Indie
    country: USA
    notes: What happened after Merchant Ships broke up? William Bonney fucking happened. Think of Kidcrash, Merchant Ships, and Midwest Pen Pals in a super mega orgy of awesomeness and there you have William Bonney. Jack’s vox are as brutal and emotional as ever. They have a similar feel from Ships but the band is definitely more mature. Can’t wait for more.

  • Envy – Recitation (2010)
    By on September 22nd, 2010 | 117 Comments117 Comments Comments

    genre: Post-Rock/Screamo
    country: Japan

    Before I make this post I want to reiterate as I did before. I feel bad for posting this, but I feel like it deserves to be heard. This album has yet to be released so please do everything you can to support this band. People in the USA please go see their tour (dates on their myspace). People elsewhere, I’m sure you’re probably already pre-ordered this (I know I did), but if not it’s worth having a physical copy.

    notes: Envy is a very influential screamo/post-rock band from Japan. With this release they seem to be slightly straying away from the screamo sound and focusing even more so than earlier on post-rock. Musically, Recitation sounds very much like Explosions in the Sky and the like. However, sections of past faced punk rock styled skramz is incorporated to provided a unique style. As usual for Envy, spoken poetry is a very powerful force on this album. The music is very moving and when the vocals are screamed it hits the core of your heart. If you are expecting a strongly screamo powered album, you might let down. If you know Envy lately, you shouldn’t be. But if you just want to hear intensely beautiful music you won’t be.

  • Burn Idols – Burn Idols + From The Darkest Corners, Comes the Deepest Blues
    By on September 11th, 2010 | 109 Comments109 Comments Comments

    bitrate: 320 kBit/s
    genre: Screamo/Hardcore
    country: USA
    notes: Burn idols is a dark chaotic screamo band from California. Elements of hardcore, crust, and grindcore are also present, which makes them very enjoyable to listen to when you’re in the mood for heavy music. Sometimes fast, sometimes pushing drone metal, but always brutal. The kind of music that makes you want to mosh in your bedroom and fucking tear shit up.
