Guest Post - Alta - Places

Here is another guest post from Chris over at Elementary Revolt. Still the dude.

Country: UsaGenre: Post Hardcore, ScreamoLabel: The Ghost Is Clear Records/Endnote RecordsTracks: 7Length: 29.4'
Alta is a four piece band from Milwaulkee, Wisconsin who formed in 2010.  Alta play a great style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, punk, and screamo within their sound.  Places is the band's latest seven song LP, which was released July 12th, 2012.Musically, Alta's influences are diverse and include bands such as Caravels, Sinaloa, Hot Cross, Lautrec, Caravels as well as noise rock influenced post hardcore bands such as Capsule and Transistor Transistor.  This amalgamation of sounds makes for an amazing listen and Places is an incredible LP.  The best way for me to describe Alta's sound is for you to imagine a cross between Laurtec and Hot Cross.  I can't begin to describe how good this album is.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy.  Look for Places to be released via The Ghost Is Clear records by the end of 2012.
