Screamo is a musical genre that developed out of emo, more specifically hardcore emo, in the early 1990s. Characteristic of the genre are the screaming vocals (not growling). Other than that, it is fairly hard to classify (particularly since the rule about screaming vocals is bent fairly often). It is sometimes also mistakenly referred to as emo violence, which is closely related (although bands in both genres borrow ideas from each other).

Screamo bands play a thrashy brand of emo often featuring harmonizing guitar riffing and anguished vocal screams. It is sometimes perceived that because of its sheer speed and brutality, screamo bands often border on grindcore, however what basis this has in fact is questionable. Many screamo bands play a slower melodic breakdown in songs. Lyrically, screamo topics are often times introspective, although it is not uncommon to see a screamo band with political lyrics. Most screamo songs use imagery and metaphors to communicate lost love or failed friendships.


Сообщество создано, имея в виду его заведомую непопулярность. В связи с чем ни на что не претендует. Цель - одна - обмен всевозможной медиа/текстовой информацией о этом музыкальном жанре, сыгравшем решающую роль в моём (надеюсь, и не только моём) музыкальном становлении. Очень не хотелось бы видеть здесь очередных модников/модниц и любителей коммерческой музыки - свободное присоединение к сообществу отключено.
