Secret Smoker

The sound of scream-o has changed. And as a follower of the genre, I can say it has for the better. Current bands are more technical and heavier than ever (check out our Loma Prieta for a good example). But sometimes it's nice to go back. Not to the very beginning, but to a point when the genre was starting to get more progressive. Enter Secret Smoker, a band who have brought back that sound and modernized it. Their debut, Terminal Architecture dropped last year and it's nice to hear that older scream-o sound again. I could list a dozen bands below that they remind me of, but I think these three are pretty accurate. Snag the LP below and their most recent split 7" with Alarms & Controls.
