Every wondered what Orchid would sound like if they were peppered with Kaospilot and black metal? Well THE ULTIMATE SCREAMO BAND is your answer. Egotistical band name? Not in the slightest. THE ULTIMATE SCREAMO BAND is a solo project from Montreal's Guillaume Archambault with a hilarious name that pokes fun at the genre as well as the fact that it's not even a band, as it's all Guillaume. Very sarcastic and I love it.

I first met Guillaume when he was playing drums for Nous Étions tour and they came to my house before playing the Congratulations release show back in late 2014. A truly amazing person, we hit it off right away discussing screamo bands from Europe and whatnot. When he recorded 'La saison du champignon' he sent me the tracks and asked if Zegema Beach Records would like to help out and I was truly humbled. The 7" is limited to 60 copies on lathe cut clear vinyl and are being sold at cost at around $15CAD (aka about $11.50US) and will not be repressed. Realizing the high cost due to really amazing diy packaging by Guillaume all parties involved decided to sell at cost, expecting only true fans to purchase one. You can grab one from the ZBR distro here or grab one from the other labels involved if they haven't sold out already, as I am down to about five as of this post. The 60 original/unique blue covers with binding ribbon and killer 90s style lyric book look amazing. My friend Shaun from Adorno Records and Thisismenotthinkingofyou also released this on cassette with different artwork which you can check out here.

THE ULTIMATE SCREAMO band will be recording more material in the near future and I'm extremely pumped, for songs such as "La raison du cabochon" and "Repenser" tear through their entirety of unrestrained chaos in less than two minutes combined. If you haven't given this project a chance I would strongly, strongly recommend you jam the embedded songs below. Orchid fans rejoice, this shit is killer.
