D'AMORE played a passionate and yearning style of screamo that was oh-so popular back in the early-to-mid 2000s. To repeat myself for what seems like the 10th time, that sound is generally dual spoken/yelled vocals with screaming tantrums laced with clean, jazzy guitars and bouncy rhythms that lead to distorted, mathy breakdowns and some extremely fast-paced hardcore. This band did shit super-DIY, especially the 'Dawntreader' split 12". You can purchase these extremely rare 12"s here. I just started listening to Algernon Cadwallader and D'AMORE is a heavier and less mathy version of that band - especially considering they are pretty much the same guys.
To be honest, the band has some mediocre vocal "harmonies", but the sheer amount of awesome screamy/noodley hardcore more than makes up for those misgivings. The band's recordings are always raw, but not in a fuzzed-out, distorted or crap-quality kind of way. This is what I would expect them to sound like live. No recording and mastering tricks were used here.
D'AMORE was a short-lived thing of beauty, and I hope you download the discography and spread the love.
Craig from D'AMORE is also the founder of Be Happy Records, which released some Alergernon Cadwallader, Towers and Dawntreader records.
