Post-hardcore from Australian, and it's fucking awesome. I'm extraordinarily picky with almost everything that I listen to, but this really surprised me. Reminds me of Touche Amore a bit, but I guess that's a bad thing since people seem to think they're too popular to like now.

Hmm, possibly the best emo band ever? I hope everyone has heard them. I'm doing my best to avoid the essentials of the hardcore/emo/screamo genres(assuming you already have them), but I Hate Myself is an exception to this guideline.

Emo kids close-up with a wide-angle lens. Emo from Norway - get this and start clapping. At times it's a little to chaotically structured for me, but fans of Age Sixteen should like this.

Some of the most depressing music you'll ever hear. That's all. Mainly all acoustic, lo-fi, horribly depressing atmosphere, somewhat well-written lyrics, and practically a suicide letter. He killed himself when he was only 16.

Hmm, What the hell is this? Floaty guitars, moaned and whimpered vocals? There's nothing to compare this to, and I'm not saying that as a testament to how good they are, either. There is really nothing like them. I'm not such fan of their other stuff saves Days Slipping By, but to me this is the best I've heard from them.
Two amazing live bands - if you haven't seen them you badly need to. Anyway, this is a collective effort of both bands and it's nothing short of amazing. If you think they're great separate you need to hear them collaborating because it's a whole new experience
Check out the lyrics to both sides of the split, too:
Replace all I felt promised to me.
To be the one who figured it out,
Who knew what to do,
Who knew how to feel and
Love of the past,
The worth of the world,
Just set it ablaze and
Thaw me out.
