Default Bullet Train To Vegas

A great new Nitro band, that sounds quite similar to bands like At The Drive-In and Fugazi. They also have the same energy and sound as a lot of D.C. bands. I think their album We Put Scissors Where Our Mouths Are is just really good as a whole so I'm not gonna recommend any songs.

i went to their site and downloaded cut the party to pieces, really really good, very ATDI, i'm tempted to download the whole album cuz i've been searching for something similar to ATDI, you know the fresh, brisk, angry voice ( not emoish cuz emo screaming is just rediculous ) and angry music....you mentioned fugazi, i heard about them a while back when i was trying to find some hardcore bands but the fact that they have like 15 albums put me off a bit ( because of the amount of catching up i would have to do ), do they really sound like ATDI and can someone recommend some songs maybe?

Fugazi isnt really an angry band (if thats what you were looking for), i think ian got the majority of his anger out with teen idles and minor threat.

ya, ian is the singer for minor threat who alot of ppl claim started staight edge, and fugazi is a band that alot of people claim started emo...one reason why he gets so much recognition, i cant think of anyone else that has been given credit for starting two surprisingly popular genres...anyways, back to the subject (kinda)..ATDI - they do that song one armed scissor right?

Regardless of whether this is your kind of music, it's not a bad idea to get familiar with this sector of music- ian's bands include Rites of Spring, Teen idles, Fugazi, Embrace (not the new uk band), Minor Threat, and the new indie/pop project the Evens. Those bands (excluding the Evens) were among the first hardcore/emo bands. The hardcore that people speak of now has been distorted since the 80s. I have a feeling I know what you're looking for, but I would recommend checking out some of the hardcore threads on MB, there's a lot of good suggestions in there.
