Sample your heartbeat to stay alive by the Scarabeusdream was hands down THE most amazing local ‘release’ of 2007. It’s a dark and intense album. I had to wait until the second time I saw these guys live to buy their demo, and I then listened to it for a whole week – so much, in fact, that my sister hated me for months after that. I used to recommend that band to anyone who was sort of into screamo music (and sometimes not), and get people to go to the shows. Most people were happily surprised.
Anyway, the scarabeuses (?!) now have free songs up on their website. Go check them out, and if you are in the area (Vienna, Austria) come see them play at Brut on December 31st!
