Angels Never Answer

Angels Never Answer... Looks to be active around the year 2000 and from Birmingham Alabama, and later Denver Colorado. It's very metalcore, but during this time, it seems that a lot of metalcore was bordering on music appropriate for this blog. Just really angsty screamy metalcore. It think it was an interesting time. I kind of have a soft spot for this type of music. I definitely recommend the S/T (or Hier Ist Kein Warum as it's other known as), I haven't listened too much to the split, but it seems to be OK as well.

Gyre Spire & Spindle

Another Edmonton, Alberta band. I wish I had more on this band. I can't even find their complete album. They were active late 2000's and kind of play a melodic type of sound with female vocals.It kind of fits a newer sound I've noticed out of Canadian (Albertan?) bands. I think this is their only release, and I know I'm missing a song from it. Hope I can track down more at a later time. Check it out for sure, I think it's quite good.


Road to Emmaus

From their bandcamp
our attempt at a screamo band. we did shows in the inland empire (california) in early 2000. we recorded a five song demo and a full length. i will gladly burn one for you if you want to contact me. members went on to be part of the beautiful mistake and falling cycle. the beautiful mistake covered one of our songs on their "light a match, for i deserve to burn" record. it was fun while it lasted. 

It kind of sounds like a pre-metalcore band. Looking up those bands that members went on to play in, they're total garbage scene core type stuff. This band is alright though. Reminds me maybe of Embrace of Angels or something.

The Wake

I don't have too much on this band other than that they were from Michigan and active early 2000's. Searching for them definitely brings up a ton of stuff about their split with Searchingforchin a pretty "big" Canadian band. Nothing really to be found about them other than that. I have here that split and also a demo. It's kind of metalcore influenced stuff, somewhat similar to Searchingforchin even. Check it out if you're curious.
