Tristan Tzara


Tristan Tzara were a six-piece screamo/hardcore band from Dortmund, Germany that lasted from 2000 to 2002. They played the same kind of chaotic and dark music that Orchid and pg.99 were perfecting over the pond. Having said that, Tristan Tzara were still their own breed of animal. For one, they were a lot more "together" than the aforementioned types of bands. Don't get me wrong, there are still moments of utter abrasiveness and confusion, but those are also accompanied by moments of crushing unity, kind of like a Drive Like Jehu song that's gone to 11. This band has some really interesting guitar spots, where their dual guitars mesh perfectly to create some odd chord patterns. Their vocals are also scorching for the most part, but they do balance it out with some spoken spots, even over more violent and loud instrumental moments. But that's all descriptive rambling, the only thing that really hits you is the music itself. So below is their only two albums, both of which are worth being floored by. A full discography was also released in 2014, featuring both albums plus a ton of extra live, unreleased, and demo tracks that span the entirety of their tenure.  Oh, and they also shared members with another amazing German hardcore/screamo band, Louise Cyphre. Enjoy.
