    I've been listening to it a lot lately and wanted to know if any other tempers like it too?
    Stuff like Saetia, Orchid, I Hate Myself, iwrotehaikusaboutcannibalisminyouryearbook, pg. 99, Raein, Circle Takes the Square, I have Dreams, You and I, jeromes dream, suis la lune, etc? (just to note shit like bmth, asking alexandria and the like are not screamo :))
    If you've never listened to any of these bands I'd definitely recommend

    Eh...no. Screamo is the one type of music that I can't stand.

    I don't know most of those bands, but I'm a huge fan of Circle Takes the Square. There's just something about them that sets them apart from other screamo bands.

    No, I can't stand screamo. I love metalcore, deathcore, and post-hardcore though.

    Isn't deathcore basically the polar opposite Rock equivalent of Screamo?

    Gospel, Envy, City of Caterpillar, Off Minor and Celeste are all on my MP3 Player.

    As for Deathcore being in any way the opposite/equivalent of anything....Not a chance. Straight up screamo generally has the vocalists emphatically screaming their hearts out until their throats are raw to convey the emotion, whilst Deathcore has Junz, breakdowns, often a simpler melody line and often comedy song titles.

    Well said, also, COC, Off Minor and Envy are awesome. I got the pg.99/City of Caterpillar split vinyl :D
    Screamo is definitely more raw/emotion than deathcore, deathcore is just... ugh, a lot sounds the same (one could say similar things about some screamo bands, though)

    wat. Deathcore is heavier, and isn't as...Weak. They aren't THAT different, in terms of genres (Like how pop and hip-hop are often grouped together).

    Also, xist, BMTH is a terrible example of deathcore, as they're shit IMO. Here's a much better deathcore band:



    And here's an example of Technical Deathcore, which is basically deathcore with electronic elements (Keyboards, synth, etc.) and a more progressive sound:

    I cannot stand screamo, "real" or not. I prefer actual music over idiots making gutteral noises into a microphone.

    If La Dispute or Touche Amore are "real screamo" then yeah.

    Otherwise, "real" hardcore is for me.

    Carpathian (isolation album), Hundredth, Stick To Your Guns, Counterparts, Terror, are some hardcore bands that actually have a message in each of their songs, and aren't just trying to sound "brutal" for all the little tweens to wet themselves over.

    LOL @ Gahars. I agree, but not everything is like that, that's mostly deathcore. I can't stand that shit either. I used to when I was 14 and thought that was the ultimate form of music.

    I'm not a fan, I love some bands who use screaming vocals but not "Real Screamo" as you call it. And how did I know that Bring me a new vocalist would get mentioned ....... :shit:
