i'm not very up on my musical categorisations....what is it like?
as what emo is trying to be.
well i guess it's meant to be emo with screaming. But 'orginal emo' was all about the screaming, 'y'all'.
as proper emo mixed with grind. its mad, basically.
gives a pretty good explanation.
Orchid are the original screamo band, apparantly, anyway they are ace.
This pretty much does the job:
That Wikipedia entry is fucking terrible. It looks like it was written by a cluster of retards. Not sure what I was expecting, to be honest.
Well, at least that seems to be the common ground of all those bands.
Most of them are pretty shit yes, but like every "genre"/"scene, there is the good bands.
You shoudlnt criticise so easily, it's like me saying for example that all post rock is slow, boring, non-moving wank.
Its obviously not as I like quite a lot of post-rock.
, like Emo, I find to be frustratingly indefineable. Screamo, like Emo, in the late 90s / early noughties (Ive never said that word before) sounded completely different to what it is now.
Personally I think Screamo just has a lot more aggression than Emo, albeit with the same intentions.
And nowhere I have I heard even one ounce of grind in a screamo record from any band anywhere.
has mistaken grindcore for screamo
its just what i was taught. maybe not. it doesnt bother me that much. im not a big screamo fan really.
but you're not a big grindcore fan!
