Hey so how about it eh? I think there’s enough fans here to warrant its own thread. Here’s some mostly recent-ish releases I’ve been loving.
Crowning/Naedr split - Rayau
Was excited for this after hearing Crowning’s Survival Sickness album. Only had heard of Naedr before this one but my god do they rip shit. This split does not disappoint.
Blind Girls - The Weight of Everything
Only just recently heard of this band but after streaming 2 songs I knew I had to get this one. Pure chaos with nary a clean vocal to be heard. Sounds like the world is ending (I mean it is, yeah) in the best way.
Lower Automation - S/T
More on the mathcore side of things, and they def like to snap necks with their switchups. More clean singing here, perhaps in the vein of Dillinger Escape Plan or a more frantic and brief At the Drive-In.
Snag - Death Doula
Snag are more emo/emoviolence adjacent, though they rip shit when needed. Cleaner singing, shimmering guitars, climate anxiety - that sort of thing. Absolutely beautiful.
Seeyouspacecowboy - The Romance of Affliction
OK, so they’re self-described as sasscore but they fit reallllllly nicely in the spaces between hardcore, metalcore, mathcore and screamo. One of my favorite bands right now.
Infant Island - Beneath
Like SYSC, this band is hard for me to categorize. I’d say they’re more atmospheric/noisier than the typical screamo band, but damn when they rip they sound like they’re trying to tear a hole in the universe. My absolute favorite band in this genre and beyond.
OK I could keep going but I should probably get back to work. How abouts you?
Just recently heard of Gillian Carter thanks to a shoutout from Infant Island on Instagram. Only heard a few tracks but love what I hear. Reminds me of Nuvolascura. I’ll check out the emo revival thread as well, thanks for that!
mentioned this one in a couple of other threads, absolutely one of my favouites of the year so far. I like my screamo quite blended and not all screaming (bands like trachimbrod, suis la lune, old gray) and this is right up there, post hardcore / post rock / screamo
Diatro are one of the GOATS. That album is incredible. Really like the last one they did also as it changes from the epic skramz to more post punk without actually being post punk. The split with Raien is next level also (Raien are next level)
