The Brass

"Blunt trauma". The Brass are an interesting band, to say the least. I can't really find a ton of information on them, but it seems like they were from somewhere in New York (most likely Long Island, it seems), and they formed in 2008 and broke up in 2010. They put out three things in that time, all of which absolutely destroy. They incorporate all the great elements of screamo, post-hardcore, emo, hardcore, punk, what have you, into one hell of a force. Their intricate, duelling guitar leads are mixed with interesting chord choices, and complemented by some technical drumming. They're dynamic in their volume, in their melodies, in their structures, in practically everything. They keep each song and each second very engaging, and are overall simply awesome. I don't know what else to say about them at this point. These guys are a really good band who are way too underrated, so check them out. Apparently they have ex-members of On The Might Of Princes and Latterman among others, so that should tell you all you need to know about how great they are.
