Emo Recs

I've done a pretty good job at exploring most of the genres the world has to offer, but emo has definitely been left out of the picture just because I had no idea really where to start or what I was looking for. I've had a couple friends recommend American Football (I hear they're a given) and The Appleseed Cast so I'm going to check them out. I'm open to all recommendations, however I'm really not big on the sappy, pop-punk influenced or melodramatic side of emo. I think I like more traditional sounding emo than some of the more modern/recent bands coming out my friends have showed me. Below are some that I've listened to that I like a good bit to give a broad look at what I'm interested in. Thanks fams, have a nice day.

Pinkerton
3The Saddest Landscape
You Will Not Survive


My roommate's friend is apparently in this band, but this is basically the opposite of what I like in this genre. I think the vocals are just too whiny and always at the forefront - being over the top. I want the sadness in the music to be subtle and to come off on it's own - not planted right in my face. I don't know, they aren't bad, but I've gotten older now so mindless screams and melancholy riffs all the way up to 11 are pretty cliche.
