I understand who the bands are (Orchid, Circle Takes The Square, etc). But WHY were they called screamo? What kind of bands does this label describe? What modern bands can be labeled screamo?
Anything with Cookie Monster lead vocals fits the screamo label. Example:
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis
