A Sailor Lost Around the Earth by Valerian Swing (2011)

Kind of Like:  La Quiete, Russian Circles
Genres: Post-Hardcore, Emo, Experimental, Mathcore
Preview: Bandcamp

"...range from free and crazy jazz to wildly undisciplined mathcore, passing through indie, prog, pop, hardcore and much more along the way....July 2010 caught VALERIAN SWING at Red Room Recording in Seattle with producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Botch) for the recording sessions of their new album A Sailor Lost Around the Earth and a new worldwide label home in Magic Bullet Records. 10 songs in length, A Sailor Lost Around the Earth captures a young instrumental band hitting their stride in devastating fashion."
-Magic Bullet Records

Just stumbled on these guys.  Once again, liking the cover art has led me to another solid band.  These guys are from Italy, and you can really tell because they have those emo violence/screamo influences of La Quite and Raein.  There is no screams here though, for the most part this is instrumental, and if there are any vocals it is soothing supportive singing.  The production quality is great though; better than anything you can ask for on a La Quiete album.  They also throw in some metal/mathcore similar to Russian Circle's Enter in my opinion.
