Short But Sweet, Polite And Respectful #5
This year, Eaglehaslanded show themselves pretty active, already putting out their second release, this time in form of a Split. On this occasion they teamed up with the French three-headed screamo outfit “Les deux minutes de la haine”, who start off the split with “Tampon Rose”, which is characterized by its dense atmosphere. The song is powerful and melodic, opening the Split EP perfectly. Just like their customary manner, the following songs by the Balkan screamo-monster are dark, nearly scary and intense. One can already suspect the intensity and emotions the songs will unfold when being played live. The 7’’ Split will be pressed on transparent and pink vinyl, limited to 200 copies.
Do you remember, Daniel Sadcliffe? Tantive IV is another young and terrific screamo collective from Indianapolis. Even if “Versus///Verses” is their very first release, their sound is mature and captivates the listener. The lyrics are honest, emotional and very personal, telling a story of self-doubt, love and loneliness, alternately declaimed by Nathaniel and Rain. This kind of interaction adds the certain something to the band's straight-forward sound. This EP is recommendable for people who like Comadre and The Saddest Landscape and for everybody else, too.
“But I write the same song over and over and over again, and it doesn't make me feel any better
What a shitty form of therapy”
San Antonio, Texas: home to the defending NBA-Champ and 5-headed crust collective, Amygdala. The band from Alamo City plays emotive crust, combined with hints of screamo. Just like the Spurs destroyed the Heat in the NBA Finals ’14, Amygdala destroys you, as their sound slamdunks right through your ear into your brain where it melts your synapses while your inner buzzer hits 00:00. The impressive debut EP is available on tape, limited to 100 pieces and vinyl. We definitely want to hear more!
Digitally released on December 1, 2014 the collaboration between screamo-heavy-weight Sed Non Satiata from Toulouse, France and Carrion Spring, is finally available on vinyl. From now on, the split LP can be preordered via ADAGIO830, Echo Canyon Records and Protagonist Music.
While most of the splits contain just a handful songs, this one takes its time and transports you in a different world, full of dreamy soundscapes and desperate screams. Both bands convince you with a blend of screamo and epochal post-rock parts.
The release will be 2015-02-03.
