  • Choose Your Path – A Confession of a Cold Embrace (2003)
    By on November 17th, 2009 | 2 Comments2 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 320 kBit/s
    genre: Screamo, Hardcore
    country: Hungary
    notes: After V.A.N.E. recorded “Resurrection”, then came a new release and more importantly, a change of name into “Choose Your Path”, a name as they say has a stronger meaning. Sometimes when you listen to a band you can almost predict the sound coming next in a song, but that is not a case here. They really have a fast shifting sound, totally unpredictable and energetic.

  • Chaos is… – Self-titled (2007)

    bitrate: 198kbit (VBR)
    genre: Screamo
    country: France
    notes: I remember when I found out about this band (which was like a year ago I think) I was absolutely stunned at the amount of energy bursting out of their tunes. Soft screams and gentle guitar melodies exploding in the next second with rending tones and raving vocals, these guys really play up to their name. But what sucks hard is that, as much as I see, they have a rather small amount of listeners…guess it’s time to change that!

  • V.A.N.E. – Resurrection demo (2002)

    genre: Screamo, Hardcore
    country: Hungary
    notes: After the “Inanition” compilation we move along and watch(and hear) an evolution process of one band. Starting under the name V.A.N.E. and releasing this demo back in 2002, these guys brought us some really dark and heavy screamo/hc. One year later they changed their name and recorded some new material. Stay tuned for that, in the meantime enjoy!

    notes: Still in the mood for June Paik? Add Titan to the mix and you get an excellent split! Enjoy!

  • V/A – Inanition (2008)

    bitrate: 152 kbit (VBR)
    genre: Screamo
    country: Compilation comes from Hungary, bands come from various countries.
    notes: “Inanition” compilation is the first release which led me to come across Itai Itai records, so I presume this is the most appropriate record to start with. An outstanding mix of bands is what makes this compilation so incredible, as well as the selected tunes which really make you sit at the edge of your seat while you are listening.

  • June Paik – June Paik LP (2009)

    notes: Yesterday I was going through the blog and realized that we don’t have this record up…inappropriate miss! June Paik is in the bag of my top 10 screamo bands, so I guess I don’t have to say anything else in the introduction. Dark, intense, chaotic and emotionally charged. Stunning.

    …and we support. Botond, a friendly dude from the amazing diy label “Itai Itai records” contacted me expressing wishes for collaboration between his label and our blog. As far as I know and remember, this is the first time a label contacted SYLO, so this is an amazing opportunity for us.
    Itai Itai Records come from Hungary and have a number of great releases behind them, working with bands such as The Third Memory, dUNA, Choose Your Path and also the release of the famous screamo compilation called “Inanition”.
    You can check out their myspace page on www.myspace.com/itaiitairecords

    So starting from tomorrow, next to my daily uploads you will get a bonus upload coming from a band which is connected to Itai Itai. I would like to thank Botond for contacting me and for showing large interest in Skream Your Lungs Out.

  • If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? – Viskningar och Rop (2009)

    notes: First time I heard this band, I didn’t like it and was like “wow stay away”………..EPIC FAIL! I was so fucking wrong about these guys! Last night I took a listen to this release and was automatically blown away and can’t stop listening. Never ever judge a band when you have no patience to really LISTEN to music. So as I said, brilliant release, take a listen and be amazed. The translation means “Cries and Whispers”.

  • Analena – Inconstantinopolis (2009)

    genre: Screamo

    notes: I’m currently pissed off about something, so I kinda have no patience to think and write something here. Most of you know about Analena (I hope, if not, then you didn’t do your homework), so you know what to expect. I took a quick listen to this, they really made one hell of a nice album!

    notes: Time to upload something nice and sweet and less dark and brOOtal:) If you, by any chance, red my Petethepiratesquid/Radio Burroughs show review, then you know how I feel about this band. So I really don’t know why I haven’t uploaded this jewel a lot earlier. Download and enjoy, this is one very lovely band.
