I always snicker when people talk about the screamo sound, which was first fashioned in the 90's, as a genre that sits in the past. The past couple years have shown me a great deal of new bands taking the genre to a new place, exploring new ground, and in most cases, doing a better job than some of those original 90's/00's bands.

PETTERSSON (among many others) is one of those bands that I always use an example for people when they try to tell me that there are no new bands in this genre. The band has two releases under their belt, both showing a complex care to song writing and moving forward for a genre that they obviously know quite a bit about.

Their debut 'Rift and Seam' is a wonderful lineup of songs filled with anguished screams, melodic guitar that is meticulously played, wonderful song structure and great dynamics. At times you'll hear them taking a page from bands like Explosions in the Sky with their longer instrumental sections, drenched in reverb guitars and straight forward drumming.  Other times they are taking you down a screaming path of driving bass and drum-led fury. The band also offers a song on a 'split 7" with Det Ar Darror Vi Bygger Stader'.  It's a shorter taste of their canon, which is perfect for the split, showing off all the band's strengths.
