Two things we cover fairly often here on SYWH are screamo and Eurodance, but I never thought the two worlds would collide… until now. Hailing from the frozen tundra/luxury shopping mecca of Russia comes Fail Emotions, a new EPIC TRANCECORE band that I am really digging. They’re far from the first band to do this style, but I think they are the first to really get it right. For whatever reason, I could never really get into Enter Shikari, I think maybe because they didn’t really take the trance elements far enough?? As you will see below, that’s the last thing you could accuse Fail Emotions of. They really put the TRANCE in TRANCECORE!
This shit slaps! I really like how they wear their guitars really high like Abnegation did, reminds me of the glory days of moshcore. They give Ezophagothomia and Katalepsy a run for their money as best current Russian band– no mean feat!
Fail Emotion’s Scooter cover– I am glad to see that they’ve localized the proud tradition of American screamo bands doing semi-ironic covers of popular mnstrm songs [via Subscene/Of Mice & Men]
I… don’t really understand this band Scooter, perhaps one of our Euro friends can explain them? As far as I can tell they are sort of like that band who did “Who Let The Dogs Out,” only German so that means they bark orders at you while wearing futuristic costumes. I guess Fail Emotions is what happens when you take kids who grew up on Scooter, give them a gift certificate to whatever the Russian equivalent of Pac Sun is, and expose them to Attack Attack. My head hurts :(
