Screamo itself really isn't a genre, but It's mostly considered to be heavier sounding emo with alot of screaming and noise.

Genre categorizations are basically based on individual point of view and opinion nowadays. Through my view on the subject it's purest form is that song with a French name by Saetia.

I think Screamo is a really broad genre that most noise-based type of bands go into. I've heard everyone from the Blood Brothers and At the Drive-in to the Used and lame bands like Senses Fail. I think it's just kind of like a fallback name for bands that are hard to categorize sometimes.

Screamo is really just a general name now. To be more technical about it, the bands that are classified as screamo can either fall under post-hardcore or emo, or they can fall under emo-violence and new age hardcore.

No. I can definetely distinguish between bands listed under both genres.
Similar, while still different.

Wow..

No.
Emo-violence was a joke term started by In/Humanity.
Saetia is just plain old emo.

Screamo IS borderline grindcore.

J Lock knows the ****.

I mean, before Mathcore was named mathcore, Dillinger Escape Plan were named screamo. Look in the "What is hardcore?" thread. I'm pretty sure they ain't emo...

nah i just think screamo is emo trying to sound a little bit heavier
like trying to appeal to other fans of heavier genres while keeping their current emo fans

screamo is pretty much grindcore IMO. bands like kaospilot, kodan armada, circle takes the square, flowers in the attic, la quiete, etc...

a lot of bands get thrown in there because of simple misunderstandings. people think screamo and automatically think screaming so every band that screams is interpreted into screamo.

whatev.

and just to show you the difference between screamo and grindcore listen to daughters or the locust. that is grindcore.

None of those bands sound what could be considered borderline to Napalm Death, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Nasum, Pig Destroyer, Leng Tch'e, early Carcass, etc.

Also, you would put Saetia in the same genre as Rites of Spring, Embrace and others normally associated with them?
Quote by JobForACowboy
um, yes it is.

sry if you havent heard of it, death metal bands that wear girl jeans = emodeath

Also, would you consider the bands that Paint said, Daughters and The Locust to be grindcore?

ok you are all over complicating things. sreamo bands scream. thats it. quit lableling everything and just enjoi. yes i know thats mispelled its an allusion to skating. anyways now matter how you classify a band people are going to say they are posers. like Greenday. they are punk. they practically created punk but everyone wants to say they are pop now. duurrrr. they are pop=popular. stop listening to them and people will start calling them punk again. its all about perspective.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

How would you categorize Screamo?
I've heard mixed responses, some people I know say its like screaming emo. Others say its borderline grindcore.

What do you guys think?


Who ever told you that Screamo is borderline Grindcore needs to go jump off a bridge whilst aflame.

But yeah, screaming emo. BFMV and any bands that sound like them are classified as Screamo.

screamo isnt borderline grindcore , its borderline new grind as many of the grind purists would put it.

for a good screamo band, check out "Love Like Electrocution"
i would rather staple my own hands to a train, than pray on knees that judge and blame.
