Emo End-of-the-world Compilations

Since 2005, React With Protest has put out three great international screamo compilations. Vinyl-only releases, but these comps have gotten around mostly due to blogs. Admittedly, there are quite a few songs on these compilations I skip every time, and I find some of the spoken word tracks to be extremely corny. But these are a literal gold mine for any DIY/screamo fan. These comps have turned me on to some great bands I had never heard of before, as well as feature some fine work from some legendary bands. Definitely worth your download.

Here's a list of just a few of the bands you'll find on these comps: Daitro, Raein, June Paik, Loma Prieta, Suis La Lune, Louise Cyphre, La Quiete, Funeral Diner, The Apoplexy Twist Orchestra, Cease Upon the Capitol, Towers, Pyramids, Balboa, Arse Moreira, Battle of Wolf 359, Comadre
