SHE NOTES THE CHARIOTS were an excellent, heavy and super screamy emo/hardcore band from the early 2000s. Their sound was one of violence with blatant nods to the likes of explosions, revolt, anger and the grotesque. The metallic hardcore driven screamo sound is not unlike Dispensing Of False HalosLove Lost But Not Forgotten, Yotsuya Kaidan as well as Caught In The Fall, and nowhere is this more prevalent than the ultimate SHE NOTES THE CHARIOTS song titled "Gunslingin' in the Masquerade". This absolute beauty mixes the spastic cacophony with calculated breakdowns and enough melody and structure to make this the quintessential SHE NOTES THE CHARIOT track that was well ahead of its time.

The band released a total of three demos, two of which stuck around and the first of which was completely scrapped. If you'd like more info on the band and their history read the vocalist's account on their Last FM page here. The final release was a discography called 'Anthology' and was released posthumously in 2003 with a bonus track called "Intro" and is alright, but really it's an atmospheric instrumental track welded with a spoken word passage from a show or movie.

There are a few other songs of note, the first of which is "The President has been Kidnapped by Ninjas; Are You a Bad Enough Dude to Rescue the President", boasting drums that break the sound barrier and a midsection that sounds exactly like the much underappreciated Dispensing Of False Halos. "Jamie Lee Curtis Dead in a Field" is a great song that was reworked for the 'Tour Demo' (titled "Jamie Lee Curtis V2.0") and brings to mind Anger Is Beautiful and Jeanne with some batshit insane screaming and catastrophic instrumentals. The end of "All Aboard the Skeleton Ship" is amazing and could easily be likened to newer bands like Mothlight and Matsuri, while "I'm so Fucking Ecstatic I Wanna Dance" is probably the least crazy of all their material and is reminiscent of the final The Truth About Dreaming releases, most notably the 2015 EPs.

I didn't even hear this band until 2014 or 2015 so I was a tad late to the party, but I don't mind dancing here by myself when the music is this good.
