The Saddest Landscape - You Will Not Survive [CD/LP] (2010)

The Saddest Landscape is a screamo/hardcore band from New York/New Jersey area. They have been extremely influential on the modern screamo scene and particularly the screamo revival. I am excited that they’ve decided to reform and release some amazing music. Already, a split with Pianos Become The Teeth, Trophy Scars, and If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? Their newest full length (yet to be released), You Will Not Survive, is easily my favorite record released this year and some of the most intense music they’ve created. The vocals and guitar riffs are emotional as always, the lyrics are heart shattering, and the addition of a new drummer has proven very fruitful. One of the best bands around currently, imo. To me, they embody screamo and the diy scene. Cover your fucking heart. (Describtion stolen from SYLO)

Alpinist - LICHTLÆRM [12"] (2010)

Alpinist: Seem to have the formula right. The music is pummeling and dark while falling in the crust genre. Screamed vocals power forward through the speakers as the charging guitars cut through. Amazing drumming that is far from generic. They’re definitely an apocalyptic journey of sound.

01 Deliberate
02 Rogen
04 Licht
05 Yarncarrier And Break
06 Neverest
07 Project Fatigue
08 The Cursed Word Open-Minded
09 Hak Nam

Thanks to "Alpinist" for the link in better quality!

Resurrectionists/Arse Moreira - Split [6"] (2010)

Latest output of Resurrectionists and the last songs from Arse Moreira pressed on a wonderful 6inch vinyl. Resurrectionists start on side a with a slow beginning intro. After around two minutes you ll hear, what you ve expected. Fast, dark and downtuned hardcore/grind/whatever. Well written melody(!) lines, extreme fast drums and this lovely mix of bright and dark vocals. You ll have no break to take a breath. One of their best songs so far. Arse Moreira will contribute two songs to this split. This songs were formally planed to be used for a split with Louise Cyphre. Both songs are really good. Technical and fast played. Wow!. Sometimes they sound like older louise stuff on this songs. Too bad, that this band calls is quit some time ago.
