I wouldn't say the Locust were Screamo, they're more noise rock/punk kindof thing.

Screamo is a musical genre which evolved from emo and hardcore punk in the early 1990s. "Emo" and "screamo" are essentially meant to describe the same style of music, changing with the progression of bands and fans. Characteristic of the genre are "loud-to-soft" (sometimes chaotic) dynamics, harmonized guitars with fast-paced riffs and twinkly melodic breaks, frantic/abrasive shouting or screaming, angry/abstract/introspective lyrics, low-end production, and exceptionally energetic live shows. Screamo bands also tend to bury the vocals in with the other instruments and use more arpeggiated progressions, dynamic and time changes. Breakdowns in screamo songs are often slower and quieter than in other genres, though there is a tendency of still screaming during the soft parts.

I'm honestly not trying to be a douche, but that description is pretty vague to me. For example, what makes a melodic break "twinkly"? Also, a lot of bands that aren't considered screamo could fit into that description. That's why I'm not a fan of genre nitpicking.

just listen to some of the bands in the list then listen to some of the bands in the non screamo list

you will be able to tell the difference between screamo and other bands

wouldn't include Spy Versus Spy, Moss Icon, or I don't think Boy's Life is either, although I've not heard them, just want to get a hold of their stuff and heard they were just an Emo band in the vein of SDRE.

Boy's Life aren't a SDRE clone and more than a handful of those weren't screamo.

I assumed it was an emo/screamo band list. Emo and screamo are basically the same thing. Just screamo helps distinct the newer scene from the earlier one.

uh.
not really.

Wow that's a long list. I want to check out some bands with a female vocalist but I don't have the time to go through that many. Can anyone give me a short list please? (like 5 or so) xx
#71
^^^off the top of my head, I Would Set Myself on Fire For you and Circle Takes the Square both have female vocalists.
Quote by pixiesfanyo
uh.
yes really.


emo and screamo really developed into two separate entities
I can understand having early Emo bands like Heroin and Indian Summer on the list
but when you have bands like Spy Versus Spy and Saetia making music at the same time, you don't have to be a genius to know which is Emo and which is Screamo.

so no, Emo and Screamo are not the same thing.

An Arrow In Flight
Arsen aka Konig Der Monster
1905
Flowers In The Attic
Tristan Tzara

I don't think he named SDRE

but Boy's Life is not screamo

so it's pretty clear the two are not interchangeable.

Add 1905 to the ones already given to you, if I remember rightly they have dual vocals, and one of them is female. And they're generally awesome.
there is no fear in this heart.
