• If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
  • At times so self destructive with no intent or motive, but behind this emotion, there lies a sensible heart.
  • I’m in no shape for a new day, I'm in no mood for a better place or a fix or your pretty face. I’m just not in the mood.
  • Say something and close the door, And break the silence in our room, Hold your breath, let you through, Just for a moment this is our shelter.
  • With your hands wide open, 
Renew the days we all thought lost, 
Renew the days, 
Let go, 
Release, revolve, renew
  • don’t even try, 
to maximize these plans, 
I steal, 
I catch this wind, 
after all of my lies, 
don’t you dare fall for, 
how I could be depends, 
on the cold you bring
  • And if my heart just stops, keep me alive for a minute.
I want to know if a curtain drops.
  • So I don't care if you dance well
'cause fashion can't replace content and passion is lost between scene points and greasy hair.
  • I speak in sarcasm to relate to all the things I appreciate
I lie in rhythm to open doors I follow suit and just want more
  • Stay tame, soft river, while we weigh our faith, stay sweet, run softly, sweet river, the fool who wades in doubt will float like concrete.
  • You're the yellow bird that I've been waiting for.
  • New wars. New kings. The pigs came here to take everything. No wars. No kings. We gotta stop the blood-letting.
  •  I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees, I'd rather die on my feet so you can WATCH ME RISE
  • I took the whole damn ride, with my best friends by my side, the days turned into nights and we held on with all our might
  • what the fuck are you so afraid of? as strong as lions but you never showed your fucking teeth.

Adonis Battlefield

"Adonis Battlefield was a screamo band for only a brief period of time from 2003-2005. Their sound was described as abrasive and chaotic." Yeah, ripped form last.fm but I am too exhausted because of working with my engineering project. Still I can tell that I love the way they scream.It's like a row, one shout is answering the previous and so on. I like their songnames and the fact that they released their discography in digital form for free. If you are an audiophile you can search for their FLAC stuff on www.bandcamp.com. "I hope you bleed!".

Amia Venera Landscape NEW!

Amia Venera Landscape is an italian sextet combining nervy post hardcore riffs with wide instrumental, post metal suites. They born in 2007 with a six-pieces lineup, and immediately start gaining their own space in the italian alternative scene. In 2008 they released their debut EP "Marasm", that allows them to play in the main italian rock clubs. For me it's the one of most fantastic and original bands ever! Mix of post hardcore and post metal, clean vocals and growls as they do it is something gorgeous and incredibly awesome!

Older releases


Miri is a instrumental band from East Iceland. The members come from three small towns, Fellabær, Seydisfjordur and Egilsstadir. The band was formed in 2003 at the LungA (Art festival for young people in East Iceland) in Seydisfjordur. Iceland is porobably only one country which has so many original and unexpected artists. Miri is one of the examples. Their music is a mix of instrumental post rock music, electronic sounds and full, full, full of experiment. Chceck them out!

Rest Of My Life

Completely unpopular and underrated - less than 1000 listeners (sic!) on Last.fm - I can't believe! This unique Norwegian band needs more attention. I'm in love with those original, double vocals (ocassionally screams) and post-rock background. My favourite is Transition EP - if you think that songs there aren't catchy - I will buy you a beer! I hope that they get more fans someday, their music is straight from the heart - they deserve to be heard!

Язык Дождя

Язык Дождя (in russian this name has two meanings: the tongue of the rain and the language of the rain) are a Russian post-rock band. They compose instrumental guitar-based pieces in the post-rock tradition. It has easily identifiable connections to genres like shoegaze, progressive rock or art rock. I've noticed that almost every each of russian post rock bands is so much similiar to the Everything Is Mad In China, but Язык Дождя is diffrent - maybe even better! Check them out - I recommend self-titled LP at first.

Lowecase Noises

Lowercase Noises is Andy Othling, a guitarist and musician from Albuquerque, NM. Andy performs/programs all instruments.
Lowercase Noises started out in a college dorm with some simple recording gear and a guitar. As Andy’s love and interest in the recording/mixing process grew songs and styles began to emerge.

For me it's something b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l

Usurp Synapse

Chaotic screamo / emo violence band hailing from Lafayette, IN, USA. Interesting fact about the band is that singer also played keyboard during live performances. According to last.fm thay had some sick ideas for their merch stuff and realeses covers: "The band utilized unconventional marketing methods, such as a die-cut album cover folded into the shape of a penis entering a vagina, and the inclusion of a razor with a record that promoted suicide on Electric Human Project." They actually were a short-lived band playing and recording most of their stuff in 1999-2000. After all they released discography in 2004 and did small reunion in 2008 which effected in recording another 7 songs on A Vale Contamina. For fans of Jeromes Dream, Reversal of Man and other 90's screamo stuff.

Black Castle

Freaky duo from USA. I really don't know how to describe them. Experimental is the first word for sure. Mixing keyboard and drums with so frightening screams gets you goose bumbs. If you liked The Death Of Anna Karina's psychedelic church-ish keyboard sound, now you'll be in heaven, or wait: hell. Some of their songs contains some creepy basslines which makes them more interesting. One thing that is bad about them is the fact it's really hard to find some high quality stuff of them. If you posses a hard copy, you're a lucky bastard!

Cicada is a young instrumental band from Taiwan. Their music is a piece of composition contain acoustic guitar, cello, 2 violins and piano (1 guy and 4 girls). This fusion of classical instruments and their origin makes them sound intriguing, absorbing, magnetic and a little bit oriental. Their only release is this handmade EP (DIY?;) ). This is probably only one band from Taiwan I know, but for sure one of my favorite, even if the new one will appear. You can check them here and here (videos probably from some rehersals).

This Routine Is Hell

This Routine Is Hell, great hardcore punk from Utrecht, the Netherlands. Inspired by the likes of Minor Threat and Paint it Black: Fast, Energetic and Sincere. Frustrated by the drag and the fakeness of the world around them they speak, well actually scream, from the heart and mean every goddamned word that they say.

A Poor Man's Memory

A Poor Man's Memory are three friends, who try to explain themselves in music. Band was born in december 2007 in Dresden, Germany and till now record one EP ('there's your voice in my heart' - if anybody can find it, just let me know!) and LP in 2009. I suppose that the name of band could be from the name of a song of Explosions in The Sky, but I don't really know it and there's no informationa about that anywhere. Nevertheless, APMM serves us nice piece of instrumental post-rock music - worth to check!

Good Weather For An Airstrike NEW!

Good Weather For An Airstrike project was initially conceived at the beginning of 2009 to help Tom Honey (also of Post-Rock band Sleepless dreams.) alleviate the issues caused by suffering from tinnitus, which causes a ringing sensation in the ear and can often result in difficulty sleeping. The idea was to create a collection of relaxing sounds which would help induce sleep. The EP below presents a new remixed version of 2 old tracks.

Jesu (New) / Pale Sketcher

Jesu is an experimental band formed by Justin Broadrick in 2003. It's a mix of electronic, heavy guitars and breath-taking arrangements. Ranging from ambient music and post-rock to industrial, drone and shoegazing.
During the writing of Jesu's "Opiate Sun EP" Justin noticed that Jesu was intended to be a guitar oriented project. The ‘electronica’ side of Jesu was just an inevitable direction for him, but never satisfied with this battle between guitars and electronica with Jesu, he decided to separate the two directions - Jesu, now, and for the forseeable future, being guitar based exclusively, with Pale Sketcher being the project where he can focus and develop further, the Jesu ‘electronica’ sound, without need for further fusion or compromise.

After 15 years Cap'n Jazz REUNITED! So this the best time to post their music here. 
Their are one of the most original (mixing indie rock sounds with hardcore and melody put new quality in the emo scene from early 90s dominated by Fugazi; scratchy vocal is so extraordinary and songs are so catchy that you're gonna sing them while taking shower) and most influential (2 bands named themselves after their songs: We Are Scientists and Scary Kids Scaring Kids) of all the time in whole damn Universe!

Group featuring members from: 3cm tour, black line fever, Cleaner, Umbra, Sora and Anthropic Disease - can't be bad. It's supergroup. They make post-rock screamo music with some japanese-spoken elements, similar to Heaven In Her Arms.

Apricot Rail

Apricot Rail is a young post-rock formation from Australia. The premise of the band always was simple: music based on unique guitar tunings, the use of natural harmonics, and very open ideas about other instruments, electronica and song structure. And this sentence IMO describe them completly. Highly recommended!

Polar Bear Club

Post-Hardcore band from Rochester, New York. They represent pretty intense approach to dynamic of their songs. Lot of them seem to just be catchy and tend to be called pop punky, however everything changes when the vocalist switches his scratchy voice into screaming. Then we can feel some real energy and what post-hardcore should be. A lot of their songs sound cheerful and just happy which places them a bit closer to american rock and punk culture than bands like Thrice. Listen to it only while in good mood.

Hummingbird (not to be confused with the 70’s band of the same name) is the nom de plume of an otherwise well known composer behind the album “Our Fearful Symmetry”, which defines elements within the modern classical genre. It includes subtle string arrangements mixed with echoes of piano notes, fused with hallmarks of the electro-acoustic genre – waves of static, white noise and field recordings tangle with layers of fragmented texture that create both the foreground and background.

It’s about four minutes of build up, windy moans and plodding drums giving way to a balls to the wall freakout as the whole song collapses on itself.” I fully recommend their new album Sports.
