Araby - 2012 - alone.

Araby is a two piece band Grimbsy & Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Araby play a very noisy brand of screamo. With just the two piece they manage to make quite the noise. On their debut LP alone. they come blasting out of the gate and never let up. The singer has a nice high shriek that he usese's liberally, and I quite enjoy how full a sound they get as just the two pieces


The drums have a hard hitting quality, churning up the ground beneath you as the music slows down or falls apart. The guitars on this album walk a line between sweet riffs and moments of noise and chaos. The album is definitely more front loaded with a more introspective second half but it ends on a rather strong note.
