Wanna know what screamo really is? Check out Pianos Become The Teeth and compare it to whatever Hot Topic is offering up as flavour of the month. Big difference, no? One is pop music, the other is the real deal.

On “Old Pride” this Maryland-based outfit plays screamo but mix it up with elements of post-rock as well making it even more of an adventure to listen to. So when they aren’t busy churning out this elaborate moody instrumental soundscapes, they burst out in frantic, angular riffage and ear-shredding, intense screams. Good stuff with just the right amount of grit and rawness to accompany the underlying beauty of it all. Shit, any album that makes me all poetic about the music on it is bound to be good. Check it out!
