Ed Warner's Cage / Rookie Rock Radio

Split 7"

1. Urbi & Orbi (EWC)
2. Le Déclin (EWC)
3. Vol d'éternité (RRR)
4. Papillon de Chair (RRR)


Great split by two of France's more unknown screamo bands.
Ed Warner's Cage bring some killer tracks full of samples, synth, dissonance and chaos while Rookie Rock Radio play some more melodic stuff with beautiful spoken words parts (unfortunately though they destroy the beauty by sampling like 3 seconds of "I love rock'n'roll" at the end of the last track).

The Desert

1. The Desert (Scenes I-V)


Sorry Devar-toi, you're no longer the band that sounds the most like a total rip-off of Circle Takes the Square (not that there's anything wrong with that, this is great stuff).

Inviduum & Massen

1. Paranorm
2. Kanaan


Wow. Just wow. This is some really epic post-rock skramz. 2 tracks that together reaches over half an hour in length. It starts out with a 7 minute long promotional speech for 1972 presidential candidate George McGovern, until the singer bursts out in some heavy screaming comparable to Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort, but in german instead of french. All accompanied by awesome post-rock instrumentation with a lot of synth.

The Wake

1. The World's Smallest Violin
2. Summer In Hell
3. Gray's Anatomy
4. Segue
5. Heavy With Child
6. My Living Will


Sorry for the inactivity lately, I promise I'll try to update more often from now on.
This is yet another re-upload of an old favourite. Querencia is a way too unknown band that was once going to release this shit through Escucha Records (Suis La Lune, Suffocate For Fuck Sake etc) but for some reason didn't. Which is sad, because this is one of the most awesome screamo bands to ever exist. They had both a cello player and a pianist, need I say more?

(due to an interruption while downloading this from Soulseek the last 20 seconds or so of the song "Heavy With Child" are missing. If someone would happen to have the song in its entirety, please let me know.)

Robots Don't Cry

2004 Tour CD-R

1. Meehan: Aloha, Fatass
2. Don't Fuck With The Magical Lamborghini Circus
3. Us (Team Awesome) vs. the Spanish Armada


Apparently there's a pretty famous Russian grunge band also named Robots Don't Cry, but this is a pretty obscure screamo band from Nebraska, that didn't leave more traces of their existence than a geocities site that doesn't seem to have been updated for years. They released two tour CDs with less than 100 copies each, and a split 7" with the equally obscure band Shadows and the Silence (who I've only heard one song from, on their split 7" with Choke Their Rivers With Our Dead, that got to me yesterday after almost a month of waiting. If anyone would have any digital copies of their songs I'd be more than happy).
I only have the songs from their 2004 tour cd though. I don't even know how the hell I got them. But anyway they're great, there's lots of instrumental parts with awesome guitar works and some piano/synth. I especially love the second song.

Allegory Of The Cave


1. Track 01
2. Track 02
3. Track 03
4. Track 04
5. Track 05
6. Track 06
7. Track 07
8. Track 08

Split with Spectres

Allegory Of The Cave:
1. The Sentimental Value Of A Stuffed Teddy Bear
2. Brainstorm Crushed The Science Fair
3. Mike Cries At Movies
4. Slowly Declining

(the bands' songs have been confused with each other and are therefore tagged wrong, don't blame me for this)

Most of the old download links on this blog have expired, so I thought I'd start re-posting some of them.
I'll start with one of my all time favorite bands, Allegory Of The Cave. I stumbled across their song The Flood We Started, The Flood We Drowned In (or simply known as demo track 03) about 3 years ago, and was instantly in love. AOTC was a two-piece from Orlando, Florida who made noisy screamo with the worst recording quality ever, but were yet softly melodic at times, everything in a very unique and totally awesome way.
I don't know much about the other band on the split, Spectres, other than that they also had a track on a 4 way split tape limited to 100 copies with the bands The Short Blooming, Vlado Petrik and Zarathustra Has Been Killed In The 70's, that I happen to have in my collection alongside the Allegory Of The Cave/Spectres split 7", which is unfortunately out of print, but if it'll ever show up on eBay or something, take the chance to buy it because this is in my opinion one of the best screamo records ever made. Buy the tape too, it has amazing artworks of a whale in a tree.
