Welcome The Plague Year

Welcome The Plague Year were a screamo band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that formed in 2003 and broke up in 2005. They were formed by members of some legendary acts, namely Neil Perry, Joshua Fit For Battle, and Makara. If you're ever feeling devoid of enough material from those bands, Welcome The Plague Year is the rebound to your loss. They share a lot of the same characteristics their previous bands did, most notably the intense, distorted and dissonant guitars paired with some incredibly shredded vocals, though this project definitely expanded their palette to include more experimental aspects. Just check out some of their longer tracks like "Into Twilight" or "Doomsday Parade" and you'll see what I mean. They also happen to be some of their best work. This is some classic and essential screamo, so get on this immediately. Enjoy.
