Animal Faces

Animal Faces are a three piece screamo band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. They released their first EP Analytical Dreaming in 2010. It's screamo in the vien of The Reptilian. This is the best melding of math rock into screamo that I've heard and Ryan has an awesome desperate shout. Dude signed my album when I saw them in Toronto with Xerxes and Pianos Become The Teeth.

Animal Faces released their second EP this year Anomie and it's every bit as good. The songwriting has improved but the basic sound of the band hasn't changed. It's everything I liked about the first album, the guitars that come and go out of nowhere, the rolling drums and that same desperate shout.
