Shikari


Shikari were a four-piece hardcore/screamo band from the Netherlands that were around from 1999 to 2005. They played an incredibly aggressive, fast-paced version of screamo similar to bands such as Tristan Tzara and Orchid. Tremolo-picked guitars (hinting at some black metal influence), pounding blast beats, and high-pitched shrieked vocals are at the forefront of their onslaught. Bands like these with such a high caliber of intensity are what make this genre so visceral and incredible. They released a handful of EP's and splits in their time, all of which was initially compiled in 2004, but released again in 2005 to include releases from the previous year. In addition, their final release was an incredible split between them and Louise Cyphre, which is highly, highly recommended. Enjoy.
