If you like post hardcore or screamo then definitely check out Alesana

They are a 6 peice up n coming band out of North Carolina... really really good.

heres some reviews:

"Alesana's debut full lenght is simply outrageous... On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax is possobly my post-hardcore album of 2006!" -skyline press

"...Alesana isn't just any band, and are proving this by taking over the screamo scene...from start to finish, you are taken through different journeys and emotions, leaing you listening to one of the, dare i say, best screamo cd's of 2006..."
- punkpressonline

"5 out of 5 stars! How do they write such amzing songs...Ok Folks. So heres the scoop on the new alsana record... the album is full of tight riffs, guitar harmonies, screams that will make your adrenaline rush, and choruses that are sure to stick in your head all day. Its an amazing cd from start to finish so be sure to pick up your copy of the album" - Smartpunk.com

Problem is, they are just any band and their screamer sucks.

I rarely trust reviews, but I did see this band live last May, and yes, they are pretty decent live.
