Anonymous asked: What do you think of bands like Totem Skin and No Omega?
The self-titled EP by Totem Skin was really amazing but now their sound is too metal for me.
No Omega.. never really managed to get into their records but their live shows were perfect, at least a few years ago, now I don’t know anymore ‘cause they keep changing members but probably they’re still a good live band.
Sweden has so many cool bands though. Rainmaker are really precious. Disembarked definitely know what they’re doing even when there are so many bad bands playing the same genre. Trachimbrod had this amazing debut LP but I fear they kinda lost themselves trying to copy Sore Eyelids. Sore Eyelids are great. “Heir” by Suis La Lune is still the best screamo EP ever released. Followed By 37 Seconds Of Happiness is still the most underrated screamo band in Europe (R.I.P., though). Anemone were amazing. Heart On My Sleeve are really really good at writing music and lyrics. I should listen to Via Fondo more. I dislike Grieved. I still have to listen to the new records by Shirokuma and Trembling Hands, I’ll probably enjoy the first a lot.
Yeah, Sweden has a lot of stuff going on. Once I’ve been there. For like.. 3 hours. At the airport. It was March but it was really cold you can totally see why they write all this music.. ‘cause it’s fucking cold I swear.
