TEXTBOOK TRAITORS played amazing metallic screamo meets emo-violence with violent guitars and blasting drums. Kinda Neil Perry meets Kaospilot and Orchid with really screamy vocals, ala Deadseraphim and early Mara'akate. The band's later material has more of an Orchid and Kaospilot-light sound, but the band's first EP 'You Pull the Strings that Make Us Dance' was much more metallic influenced instrumentally and screechy vocals.

TEXTBOOK TRAITORS were such an amazing and underappreciated band - especially the 'You Pull the Strings' EP, that is unbelievable. Blast "Force Fed Voices" and you'll understand. Erik, I partially regret selling you that cd, goddamn. Grab this download now because Erik is the drummer for Lord Snow and therefore there's nothing else I need to say.
