Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back with another quick update. Just like the previous post, I also was wondering why there hasn't been more emo/screamo-related compilations lately. So, the broken and deaf heavens somewhat heared my pleadings out and I discovered this amazing international sampler curated by someone in Hanover, Germany which was also released today in digital edition. And that was only a few hours ago...Nice.
Now, you'll find in here more than 30 bands around the world playing this brand of emotionally-driven hardcore punk known as screamo (or skramz for the trve kvlt connaisseurs). The musical execution is a mix of both chaotic and melodic music with political and personally-charged lyrics. Indeed, many of these acts are fairly renowed since they're one of the most representative nowadays in the subgenre such as Comadre (USA), Drei Affen (Spain), Øjne, Shizune (Italy) and The Ultimate Screamo Band (Canada), for naming a few. But there are also some emerging acts such as Respire (Canada), Kishote (Germany), Tenue (Spain) and Elle (USA), and, of course, Vientre from Colombia, which has been one of best our picks in prior years. I'm glad south american bands are getting attention abroad but there are more hidden jewels within these lands of tropical anarchy...
Finally, click on the image where you'll get redirected to the official bandcamp account and listen to this amazing sampler. Try also to look for each band's individual works and support them. It's totally worth it. I hope to see in the near future more compilations like these ones with more south american and south east asian bands. Highly recommended. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!
