I was never much into screaming until a couple of years ago, when a band called As I Lay Dying got me hooked on it. Since then, Atreyu (the older
stuff, not the new stuff), Lamb of God, Cradle of Filth, Killswitch Engage, and Arch Enemy have seen pretty constant rotation on my CD player. Most
of these guys are signed to major labels, so I'm sorry if I couldn't help too much with the "underground" stuff.
I'm not really familiar with the various genres of comtemporary popular music, but does this qualify as "screamo?"
Actually, the lead singer is a good friend of mine and while I hate his music, he's a really smart young man with a quick wit, an incredible work
ethic, and whose band is gaining in popularity locally.
Well I am part of a pretty decent screamo band.... Well we aren't straight screamo and the stuff here is more radio friendly, but check it out...
Other than that, I'd say my favorite at the moment is Alesana and Akissforjersey. Both of those bands play some of the best screamo out there right
now. I also like Alexisonfire, Reggie and the Full Effect, and Glassjaw (actually that isn't really the same genre).
Check all those out, my vote is that you'll like akissforjersey the best..
