Yeah I do feel like I've heard something along these lines before, but this is by no means bad. Emo is a genre in which it seems rare that I find something that replicates other bands. This pleases me a lot.

"While this certainly isn’t the most unique record, who’s complaining? Pianos Become the Teeth have created a fantastic album in Old Pride with enough ear-splitting, heart-wrenching moments to keep you coming back for more."

haha I know whatcha mean

Oh! Thanks for the rec dude. I'm going to give Touche a close listen next I havent' been fair to it. It's sitting on my "to listen" list like a redheaded stepchild.

Pianos Become The Teeth
Old Pride
Topshelf
( 4.5 / 5.0 )

Baltimore's Pianos Become The Teeth sure know how to bring the room crashing down around you. Their Topshelf debut, Old Pride, isn't your typical hardcore release, nor was it meant to be. Instead, Pianos play brutal and emotionally honest music that expands upon their genre's formula in resemblance to such acts as Defeater and Ruiner. From the intense “Quit Benefit”, to the anthem-like “Sleepshaker”, to the solemn closing of “Young Fire”, Pianos Become The Teeth keep everything very fresh throughout, making for an expansive experience unlike much of the scene today. Old Pride brings you the fury, sadness, redemption, and everything in between life throws at you. This release may be quite underground for now, but it won't stay that way for long if the band keeps this kind of work up. (www.topshelfrecords.org)

I love how instead of being screamo and then post-rock, this manages to be both at the same time. Not that other bands don't do that, but this is a really comfortable mix for me. Most bands in this style seem to use post rock song structures and build into the screamy bits, but this is more like the typical screamo sound/song structure but covered in a coat of post rock.

And its really fucking good.

this really really shitty "ska" band from my high school that (barely) graduated with me is playing a show with these guys and We Were Skeletons in a few days. Things don't make sense.

On the plus side these guys and We Were Skeletons are both great. I feel like this album has become an old friend.
