Maneuvers – Leeds

May 11, 2010

Here’s a record that I won’t just hand to you, but it’s cheap (three dollars!). Maneuvers were a band that had a very traditional “rock” sound, maybe barely classifiable as Post-Hardcore. The At the Drive-In influence is very easy to pick up from them, if that gives you any more bearing on where this band comes from.

At the Drive-In – Relationship of Command

January 1, 2010

Not exactly a hard find, but a great one nonetheless. The energy in this album is amazing. One Armed Scissor is most definitely a classic.

Amber Daybreak – Sentinels

December 22, 2009

Belgian kids doing something a bit different with the whole skramz thing. The group vocals get you so fired up. Honorable mention to the song ‘Winter Seems Longer’ for keeping me sane the past few weeks.

Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort – Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort

September 8, 2009

albumIf you know me personally then I think you’d also probably know that I’m a huge French screamo fangirl. This band is currently taking the cake for me with its balance of post- and math- rock elements but on the whole it’s just really well made.

At the Drive-In – In/Casino/Out

August 28, 2009

at_the_drive_in-in_casino_outNormally I wouldn’t post this, as it’s kind of obvious. Kinda like posting some Ben Gibbard on an indie blog. However this is incredibly popular on my music blog, it’s actually the reason I got somewhat popular instead of the 2-3 hits I got a day before I had this up. But I digress. This is THE Post-Hardcore band to end all Post-Hardcore bands. In fact, after this band broke up, the genre went downhill with such acts as Alesana, or Underoath, or whatever those hooligans listen to these days. Think of them as the Saetia of Post-Hardcore except they don’t suck. This is definitely a corner-piece of any Hardcore collection, and you probably should have it already but I guess that’s not the case according to my statistics.

Celeste

August 22, 2009

celeste-nihilistes-2007

As mentioned in the post below, Celeste is essentially Mihai Edrisch but less skramz. Much like the deal with the John Cota demo – it’s always a good sign when you hear about a band from >3 sources in one day.
