1905 - Voice

I was all stoked to come in here and talk about what I thought would be considered a screamo masterpiece, and then found all kinds of negative reception for this. But not from me, I still think this is perfect and an absolutely must hear in this whole world of music.

This is packed full of extreme emotion and even more extreme musical ideas. A lot of eclectic influences come together in a style that I think is kinda hard to describe. It's progressive, political, unique, and a great structure of musicality.

^can I help you

I Would Set Myself on Fire For You - Believes in Patterns

More progressive screamo but much much further than 1905, and even Circle Takes the Square. This album brings in elements from jazz and folk, and features a wide array of different instruments not normally found within the genre. If you ever wanted CTTS to experiment with more styles then this is for you

That's a link to their self titled but all their releases are free on their bandcamp too. German metallic screamo stuff, probably one of the heaviest bands I know. We all know how powerviolency screamo is by now, but this band is brutal.

This is ****ing excellent.

Heavy screamo/metalcore from germany that shred like it's going out of style. For anyone enjoying the metallic artists in here so far.

They're alright. Not a huge fan of their vocalist

I will always hold these 27 minutes of music in such high regard. It's downright criminal that these bands get so little praise in the grand scheme of things. They should be put on a pedestal if anything. Navio Forge, Union of Uranus, One Eyed God Prophecy and etc, are bands that paved the way for all the others, and they swim by relatively unnoticed and underground. It could be that they often have very small discographies, and their one release might not be brought up as much as it should.

I name dropped two others up there aside from Navio Forge, but those bands were significantly more brutal and borderline indistinguishable from extreme metal (you know why? Cuz it mother****ing is extreme metal. Hold tight for next posts)... But Navio held tightly to the notable early post hardcore roots of their music, which I'd say might even make them more important in shaping screamo of that type. But there's no mistaking it, this album is heavy, soul smashing, passionate, and otherwise hard rocking in every way imaginable. I wouldn't call this one of the metal sounding ones, but that does nothing that could take away its brutality.

One Eyed God Prophecy were a badass sludge met- ahem, emo band that also helped form this genre. They are just really heavy and raw in a way reminiscent of Aske by Burzum. Sometimes I think it's weird how these early bands were so brutal.

We got riffs and killing. It might possibly even be a better suggestion for people who like Dystopia rather than Heroin, but it falls in between. But, I can't imagine people saying it's not metal in any way, when it plays like a blackened sludge album by way of emo. One of the heaviest.
