L'Antietam


After finishing up with the Kidcrash post, I got thinking of this band too, who are another that are long overdue for a post. L'Antietam were a four-piece hardcore/screamo band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 2004 and ended in 2012. Like Kidcrash, they played a really progressive yet intense form screamo, but more on the aggressive, hardcore side of things. L'antietam were incredible with dynamics, with songs building into spastic frenzies that never ceased to impress with technical guitar work being shot out of the havoc. The vocals would peak at all-out throat-shredding screams, giving their music such a grandeur catharsis that always sounded epic, even if a song only lasted for a minute and a half. Family and Arthur Carr are screamo/hardcore highlights, and are definitely the most recommend listens here. Speaking of which, there's one quick thing to note about Family. It includes both the EP of the same name, as well as their first two EP's and their split with Furnace, just to clear that up. Enjoy.
