Remember the late 90's when that whole resurgence of post indie rock everyone called "emo"? And remember how every band wanted to have that sound...
That's basically what you have here. Although it was like 2002.
I got in the mood of finding a bunch of old local bands and came across this. I had the privilege to play many of shows with these fine gents.
Starcrossed was from Kent, Ohio and threw in a nice balance of singy rock with a bit of screaming in the background.
These guys recently called it quits but have all of their collected releases (2 EP's and a dvd I believe...) as part of a 3 disc box set. so if you dig this, I strongly urge you go pick that up.

I totally copied that from allmusic
Neither of the cover songs are new - they are just a bit harder to come by in the Goatsnake catalogue. Both were recorded with the band’s original lineup still intact. Up first is a cover of Saint Vitus’ “Burial at Sea” which also appeared on the group’s split with Burning Witch from 2000. The tastiest offering on Trampled Under Hoof is easily “Hot Rod” - a cover of a Black Oak Arkansas song from 1973’s Raunch & Roll Live. This gem is probably unknown by younger fans, but Goatsnake created an absolutely stellar rendition for their final track.
This is brutal, spastic stuff here. Devola play that crazy grindcore/powerviolence sound but do it with a bit of noisy artsyness while they comment on social and politcal issues of importance. Think Brutal Truth, Monster X, and Deadguy.

This is, however, one of those new fangled re-issue discs that has a bunch of "previously unreleased stuff" (though a bigger MATS fan tells me none of this is really anything new). There's an acoustic outtake of "Can't Hardly Wait" with different lyrics that absolutely floors me every single time I hear it. Enjoy!

The formula for the Hot Snakes’ Thunder Down Under is pretty simple: Take all the band’s best songs, shift them into overdrive, and play them as tightly as possible for a live session on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
In the relatively short lifespan of the Hot Snakes, John Reis of Rocket from the Crypt and Drive Like Jehu’s Eric Froberg were one of the most potent duos in music. The two were the driving force behind the band’s immaculate style of hardcore garage punk, and their collective genius shines through on the live radio performance. From “Braintrust” to “Hi-Lites” to “Retrofit,” the band relentlessly pounds through their high-intensity songs nearly flawlessly.
Froberg walks a seamless line between snotty melodic yelling, and unchained emotion. The band hits their peak with the mesmerizing “Plenty for All,” with dreamy guitar playing juxtaposed against pounding drums and Froberg’s shouts of “Southern California, let's go! There's room for us all.” Thunder Down Under also offers up two songs not on their full-lengths, “U.S. Mint” and the impromptu off-key “Rock N’ Roll Will Never Die,” the one track that doesn’t perfectly hit home.
The only problem with Thunder Down Under is that it was released posthumously, and the music community is no longer graced with the Hot Snakes’ presence. Even so, Thunder Down Under is a fitting end to a band who deserves every bit of success and acclaim they received, and should have gotten more. As long as this disc is available, we can be certain that it’s true: “rock 'n’ roll will never die."
Prior to this release, Fifth Hour Hero's music reeked of potential like a motorcycle that'd been shipped in parts. The individual pieces were flashy enough when unassembled, but the whole wasn't ready to take off and roar on its own. Well, on Not Revenge... Just a Vicious Crush, it appears the Canadian quartet have done some assembly work: They've welded the bright-eyed abandon of Discount to the romantic melancholia of 24 Hour Revenge Therapy-era Jawbreaker, and powered it all with the stratospheric, we-die-together euphoria of Hot Water Music circa No Division. The result is a seamless combination of male/female melodies, and a wide-open musical throttle that roars on its own fuel from the first note and doesn't stop.
I Spoke is a hardcore/scream band from Toronto, Canada.
for fans of You and I, Saetia, etc..

Here is the Moss Icon discography (for the most part, excluding the split lp w/ Silver Bearings). This Cd shows the transformation of this east coast based punk band into the emo "ish" styles found in such mass appeal (corrupted too) today. The songs become longer and artier which is a good thing here as the cd progresses. this doesn't include side b of the ebulliton/verminscum lp. A solid listen. The guitarist went on to be in Universal Order of Amrageddon (discog on Kill Rock Stars).

Are they hardcore? Are they emo? How about post-punk? ...Screamo? They are all of these and much more. They are THE EXPLODER, and they fucking ROCK. Blasting out of Richmond VA, this band shreds with a killer live show and amazing songwriting dynamics. Creative, chaotic, melodic, abrasive, passionate, energetic, they will make you rethink your musical assumptions. They will defy your catagorizations while they rock you into a frenzy. They have been compared to Sleepytime Trio, Maximillian Colby, Boy Sets Fire, Fugazi, and Rites Of Spring-- yet they deliver their intensity with a sound that is uniquely their own. "..this stuff is inspiring.
