Let's take a stroll down memory lane. Around the time I was getting into screamo (late 2001-early 2002, I think) I was trailing off the path of melodic hardcore with the half sing/half scream thing. This band has 3 songs in particular that should grab the attention of fellow listeners back in the day. The palm-muting by this band is fucking awesome. It's not as technical as Choke, but they take that same style and flesh it out over long, drawn-out builds with really cool harmonizing. The vocals, as mentioned, are of the sing/scream variety (see Recover and Thursday), neither of which blow me away but do the music enough justice to warrant repeat listens. They only released 1 album as far as I know and it's linked below. If this was released nowadays I'd probably pass it over as a genre good and done, but 10 years ago this definitely tickled my fancy. Enjoy, old-timers.
