Screamo is a genre of music that comes from a Heavy Metal backround with Emo lyrics.
The word 'Screamo' is a type of vocal skill that is different to singing because you use your lungs and actauly 'Screaming' insted of singing.
Screamo is a new genre of music that has mainly been around sence 1990 onwards.
Screamo is a very hard type of vocals due to using your lungs and needing to breathe in and out at the same time, The problem is with Screamo is that it really damages your vocal chords and voicebox and can give you bad problems.
Some Screamo bands are different to others for example :
BrokenCyde has a hip-hop beat background but intense high pitch Screamo vocals
Bullet For My Valentine are a band with strong guitar riffs and a deep pitch Screamo with back up vocals, this band has normal singing vocals in aswell as Screamo vocals.
Bands such as Bring Me The Horizon (who happen to be my favorite band!) are Screamo all the way through with different pitchs of Screamo, They can be high pitch and low pitch.
The lyrics in these bands are mostly Emo and dark but bands such as BrokenCyde are Hip-hop happy Screamo and YouMeAtSix being an Indie type band with Minor Screamo vocals.
