Grindcore is fucked up. For some, borderline un-listenable, but there’s something about Toronto’s Pretty Mouth that can appeal to everyone, even the hardcore grind purists. They embody all of the things you liked about Daughters, Botch, Gaza, and Pig Destroyer. They’re noisy, weird, heavy,…

8 Bands In The Heavier Side of Emo That You Need to Listen To Before They Inevitably Break Up and You Look Like A Poser

funeralsounds:

Just kidding, but not really.

Unfortunately while the emo scene has given us a fantastic sleuth of bands in the heavier side of the spectrum (Saetia, Orchid, iwritehaikus, Cerce etc) a lot of these bands seem to break up without warning before we even get the chance to appreciate them, leaving empty holes in our sad angst ridden little hearts and leaving us to press our own bootleg Merchant Ships t-shirts and Seyarse patches to look cool for our Skramz-pals.

However for every screamo band that seems to put down their instruments, another 2 seem to pop up and pick up right where they left off. Despite the community, the emo scene itself is still very small and the heavier more abrasive side of it even smaller.

So to take a break from the twinkly FACGCE bands and bedroom folk heroes, I just thought I’d take the time to list a few bands in the scene that reside on the more heavier spectrum of the genre, and how they’re continuing to improve and expand the genre that the early 2000’s left us early-20-somethings to discover later in life once we’d been dumped enough times.
