ANTERRABAE: Shakedown Tonight: CD

Feb 21, 2008

The first thing that came to mind is that this is one of those screamo-emo bands. I could be right on that fact. But the music is more of the current day hardcore variety. The music tends to reach more into the metal vein with the heavy down strum riffing of the guitars and the double bass drums. The screamo comes from the vocalist. He screams to the point where you can picture veins bulging from his forehead as sweat sprays out. His eyes bug out like they are about to explode from their sockets and his hot breath hitting the microphone is burning the electronics. The emo comes from the breakdown in their songs that the vocalist actually sings and sounds moody in an Incubus kind of way. Pretty interesting stuff that was enough not to make me get discouraged from the emo overtones that I hear.
