Skrillex And Anthony Green Tease Potential Collaborative Screamo Release

This is a little old, but it’s just getting traction now. Besides, a bit more publicity might light a fire under the asses of these two.

REVIEW: Capture the Crown – ‘Til Death

Artist: Capture the Crown Album: ‘Til Death Genre: Screamo/hardcore Label: Sumerian Records Capture the Crown refer to themselves on their Facebook page as “metal/hardcore” done the Aussie way. Oddly enough, they sound exactly like every other hardcore/screamo band you’ve ever heard. They are exactly as alienating, making cacophonous, tuneless music that will only appeal to […]

REVIEW: Duck. Little Brother, Duck! – Don’t Take Our Filth Away

Artist: Duck. Little Brother, Duck! Album: Don’t Take Our Filth Away Genre: Alternative Label: Topshelf Records I know I’m not supposed to like this, because this is all faintly ridiculous. And yet…I kinda do. There’s no consistency beyond the rough and tumble set-up; the songs are all varying lengths and it’s nigh impossible to figure […]
