I can feel so emotional(about to cry)
Then have a silent scream after

People often label bands as screamo when they scream but most of the time they're wrong.

Screamo died in the 90's... RIGHT..
but now new bands started to play like a comercial screamo
that is kinda good actually...
saetia, orchid, Reversal of a man, are/were good screamo bands.
Orchid is actually Hardcore Punk, but fuckin fags keep telling that's screamo when it's not.
Screamo has "turned" into a new genre... that is mixed or confused with Screamocore:
bands as underoath, haste the day(at it's beginnings), shaped by fate, symphony in perfil, norma jean (garbage screamo/grunge screamo) are screamo bands NOW.
bands like atreyu and the bled are "hardcore".

bands like alesana and finch a part from being gay are fuckin pop... those cock suckers suck.
New Screamo is characterized by vocals and some parts of singing, melodic guitars, continous drumming and a elaborated music that put up together sounds better.
And ZAO is NOT A screamo band!. that's hardcore/metal

and please don't fucking mix: emo, emocore, violent emo, southern rock, hardcore, metalcore, WITH FUCKING SCREAMO!
guy #1: I Like Screamo (saetia, orchid)
guy #2: fuck, saetia isn't that good! orchid is ok, but that's old.
Guy #1: FUCK you guy 2
guy #2: no seriously... new-screamo is knida good...
listen to this: he plays some (NS)NEW SCREAMO song.
guy #1: (he realizes that some of the NS is actually good)
guy #2: Fuck YOU ALL!!

A type of music very similar to post-hardcore except more influenced by "emo" music. Combines emotional singing with screaming and grunting. The favourite music of scene kids and most emo kids.
I listen to Screamo music.

It as nothing to do with emo. It's true that the name screamo looks like scream and emo, but it's not emo with scream.
Screamo is a lot more musicaly violent than emocore.
Listen to Saetia or Circle take the square (both best screamo band), and tell me if it sound like Alexisonfire or the used. Those are emo core.. far smoother than screamo.
Saetia, Circle take the square, those are my best screamo band

Screamo can be a form of raising self esteem, however this is a more dangerous way of raising self esteem. Screamo can have adverse effects on ones mental health, resulting to violence and possibly killing oneself or others, trying to prove to "their world" that they are superior. It could be considered an attack in the form of audio signals, scaring others or corrupting weaker human minds. Screamo followers can be viewed as untrustworthy people by others who dislike screamo or have never heard of it before. Most people also view screamo followers to be people who like being tortured, or torture themselves, and are possibly suicidal. Screamo song structures are generally weak and unexciting, but boast a loud voice, which is why people consider followers to have low self-esteem. By comparison musicians who have a darker side and like to play in rock bands generally aspire to become the next legendary death metal or black metal band. What these genre's have produced are some musicians which have created powerful and impressive song structures and music, leaving the impression of extremely high self-esteem.
Screamo may not have a large following, but it's effects can cause anguish to listeners.

Very fast played music, with very angry lyrics and twisted stories. Nothing to do with finch and all that crap. Screamo is an art form. Could I suppose be classified as noisecore to some people.
Some girls, Daughters, Circle takes the square, Bucket full of teeth, Birds of prey and so on.

A genre of music, loud and exciting, followed by scene and indie kids who have nothing better to do. and, unusually, is often paired with hot beverages. Teamo, is the word coined.
Indie Kidd 001: OMGZZ, TEAMO PARTY AT MIONE FRIDAY.
Classic Rock Kidd: What the heck is that?
INDIE KID 002: WELLZ, WE ALL WEAR PASTEL DressES, MAKE CAKEZ AND LISTEN TO SCREAMO WHILE DRINKING TEA.
Classic Rock Kid: Ummn, okay. I would come but I dont like tea. Sorry.
INDIE KID 003: THATZ OKAYY, WELL HAV COFFEE
Classic Rock Kid: I dont like coffee either.
INDIE KID 004: WELL HAVE HOT CHOCOLATE.
Classic Rock Kid: I don't like hot drinks.
INDIE KID 005: WELL SCREW YOU, CLASSIC ROCK LOSER. GO LISTEN TO QUEEN, JOURNEY AND DAVID BOWIE
Classic Rock Kid: Okay. I hate Screamo. GROUNDD CRONTROLL TO MAJIOR TOMMMMMMMMMMM
