Kind of Like: Adaje, Lizards Have Personalities, Vowel
Genres: Screamo, Post-hardcore, Doom
With the abrupt ending of Adaje last year after their full US tour and release of Yore Veils, I was left wanting more bands with a sound like theirs. It was screamo, but it was also concentrated chaos dripping with influences of doom metal and post-rock. After listening to this album by Chicago's Atalanta, I think I found a band with a striking similarity to that. Instead of ending however, it seems like this band is just beginning. If you are in Chicago, you can catch these guys with Droughts and William Bonney (second to last show ever) on July 19.
