Review Summary: Bro, you should check out this band called Ojne

Ojne are a five-piece screamo band hailing from Italy, and they play the kind of style you would expect from a screamo band from Europe. They take influence from bands like Raein and Daitro, but improve on them with more engaging, original, and varied song writing. This LP has only five songs on it, but throughout the five songs the band manages to solidify their sound and come out sounding better than most modern screamo bands could ever dream of sounding.

The guitars are standard for Euro-screamo, except with consistently flooring riffs and chord progressions, with a sort of twang to them as they play octave chords and twinkle and tap along. The drums are a step above most modern screamo bands as well, building up and calming down, the drums add to the ever-changing dynamics of the songs on this LP. The vocals sound raspy and extremely passionate, although the lyrics are in Italian, so there is a language boundary, there is no boundary separating the emotion in his voice from the music. The lyrics are also translated to English, and when reading the translations you'll find that they are introspective and simply fantastic.

"Read yourself again in one year
and you'll understand it was all useless.
Listen to yourself again in one year
and you'll find out everything has changed.
It's already gone, it's already happened
sift through innocence as if it were a book
written twice, written thrice
but it always stays the same."

The opener here, Glasgow, is undoubtedly the best song. It starts with a section that builds up almost like a City of Caterpillar post-rock bit, along with a sample in English that pulled me in as soon as I started listening. The sample contains a man talking to a female, presumably his daughter by the context, he goes into a story about a couple that were in love and didn't care about the rest of the world, until reality set in. Following that is four minutes of pure unbridled emotion. The rest of the songs here are good too, without a doubt, but no song here reaches the level of catharsis as the opener.

Ojne isn't too special of a band. There's not that much originality or new ideas to be found in this album, but what you will find is the European screamo formula executed very, VERY well. So I implore you to listen to this album, if you are a fan of screamo I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
