Music Education for Those Who Think Coheed is Screamo (E.J.'s Words of Wisdom)

Metalcore

Based on a combination of both bass-like roaring (Scream = screamo. Roar = metal. Roar > Screaming!) and normal singing. Guitar soloes, heavy breakdowns, gallops (really fast triplet things), and really fast scaling are used. Usually very fast tempo and adrenaline based. Metalcore is all about being empowered.

Killswitch Engage

I saw these guys in concert in 2007. The singer is pretty much my idol and their lead guitarist is absolutely amazing! (I can play this on piano cause i love these guys)
Pretty Much the Best Song You'll ever listen to in your Entire Lifetime!

As I Lay Dying

I just saw these guys on Friday and they were absolutely phenomenal! And this concert was what started the whole music discussion. Take a listen. You really might enjoy. Btw, this song is probably the softest song they've written. I can play most of this on piano too.

Unearth

Just recently got into these guy's. They're really good.

Progressive Metal

I can't really explain this genre, but do you hear screaming in this song by Coheed and Cambria? NO YOU DON'T! Not one ounce of screaming! BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SCREAMO! THEY ARE PROGRESSIVE METAL!

Coheed and Cambria

Screamo

Really high pitch singing to the point you want tear your ears off. Really annoying punkish type of rock. This shit sucks.

Chiodos

The epitome of Screamo
