Musically, Youth Novel can be said to draw inspiration from bands such as The Saddest Landscape, Pianos Become The Teeth, Beau Navire, and Portraits Of Past. Turned Around Abruptly Beside A Mirror And Jumped At My Own Reflection is the band’s debut four song EP, which was released via bandcamp on May 23rd, 2014. These four songs make for a very impressive debut. Youth Novel have totally gotten the down quiet/loud, fall on the floor, and scream your lungs out down pat that makes bands like The Saddest Landscape, La Quiete, Raein, and Portraits Of Past so intense.” - The Elementary Revolt

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,…
Pre-orders are up for our latest release! Check out the full stream over at Funeral Sounds and then pick up a tape from the store!
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.
Scowler and Flesh Born both make the cut!
