I'm hesitant to refer to Carrion Spring as screamo for a few reasons; the first being that I'm terrified of potential backlash from Tumblr-core pedants insisting that it's an inaccurate delineation of the group's music, and the second is that I genuinely feel like there's more to this band than that. I guess the third is that I just find that term inexplicably repulsing, so I'll just go ahead and say they're a "rock band." The group's semi-new LP, A Short History of Decay (which has been remixed and re-released on vinyl), rocks indeed, and suggests a breadth of influences—the title track and the series of "Selah" interludes, in particular—that extend beyond the typical touchstones of hardcore. Sycophantic, flavor-of-the-week phoniness this is not. These dudes know their shit and play from the balls. MORGAN TROPER
