The Aftermath of Your Bright Beings by Battle of Britain Memorial (2011)
Kind of Like: Envy, Neurosis, Mogwai
Genres: Screamo, Post-hardcore, Post-rock
A screamo band from Europe? From France? No way, bro. That don't make no sense. These guys are fairly new to a saturated european screamo scene. They throw in some things that don't sound like all the others though, I almost want to say they have a drone aspect to them. I know that kinda comes with post-rock, but not all the time. I also want to say this isn't nearly as chaotic as other european screamo bands. So yea, they just released this last week, and I want to say this is their debut album because their last.fm doesn't even have a description yet or anything and like only 11 listeners. How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb? It's a pretty obscure number, you've probably never heard of it. That joke is actually too mainstream now, I saw it on tumblr. I refuse to use it ever again.
