Marietta Calls it Quits

2015-12-25 by Conmaniac CONTRIBUTOR | 46 Comments
Marietta, an emo revival band from Philly, has decided to break up. Marietta released two full length albums as well as a demo, a single, and a couple splits with Modern Baseball and other bands. In their heartfelt facebook post, Marietta said this was a decision they apparently made a couple months ago and have decided to announce it before their final show, the Kat Kat Phest IV.

well first wave lasted 2 years total if that's your standard for first wave. but your idea of first wave is just emotive hardcore bands and it might as well be a completely different genre from the rest.

Artuma

i'd say the first wave lasted for like seven years or so, i think the term is quite well established. bands like jawbreaker, mineral and sdre are all second wave

and how is emotive hardcore not emo lol

rufinthefury

they're still emo but in terms of the sound they're radically different. there's a teensy bit of an emotive hardcore revival with bands like Joyce Manor taking influence from them but overall they're really, really different sounding. seriously, compare a song by American Football to a song by Embrace.

it's not like bands like american football would be the epitome of emo. it's a damn broad genre

rufinthefury

Not really. in each era almost all the bands sound damn near exactly alike. especially for first wave and 90s. there's really only like three diverse sounds, the emotive hardcore, the twinkly 90s, and the pop-emo now. skramz/screamo is a whole nother thing too.

Artuma

all of those can be put under the emo tag, screamo is emo too so yeah i'd say it's quite a broad genre. and what is, say, merchant ships then because it isn't really any of the things you just listed? they are still certainly emo right?

rufinthefury

merchant ships is in the 90s sound category pretty solidly.

Artuma

there's no such thing as "the 90s sound". obviously their sound is derived from that era but 90s emo included an infinite amount of different styles
