So if this is the wrong place for this I apologize, (first day)

Bands like Chiodos, Dance Gavin Dance, Circa Survive (or many of the punk/screaming bands) have a similar sound and I was wondering what kinds of scales they know to get this sort or sound.

Any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. Brutal flaming would be understood.
yeah, there's no special scales for those guys who just so happen to be neither punk nor screamo. it's all in how you put things together. it has nothing to do with scale use.
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...

...You're still disappointing them...
Scales aren't specific to genres.

Also, people don't generally write songs with a scale in mind. They just usually turn out with a certain pattern.
I know that chiodos uses a pure minor scale in, theres no penguins in alaska and baby you wouldnt last a minute on the creek.
