MAKARA was a short-lived screamy hardcore band that shared members with legendary hardcore/screamo acts such as Welcome The Plague Year, The Anasazi, Jenny Piccolo and Mohinder. They had some high-pitched screaming courtesy of Kerry-Jo Pries of Welcome The Plague Year, ridiculous drumming with an insane amount of snare not unlike Ruhaeda and The Third Memory with further dissonant and frantic guitars which again were very reminiscent of Ruhaeda, Jenny Piccolo and newer bands such as Foxmoulder.
To be honest, newer bands like Lord Snow, MNWA and Mahria come pretty close to recreating this sound - whether or not they are even aware of MAKARA - I don't know (although I'm certain that Lord Snow was unaware of them). Seriously, if you're craving more MAKARA then go listen to Lord Snow, because it's as close as I've heard. The fact that the omsb mix had a MAKARA / Lord Snow one-two punch was no accident. Same with these postings. There's no noodling in MAKARA, but there's a ridiculous amount of speed and screeching - two of my favourite things.
