Corporeal - 2013 - Balance

Corporeal is a four piece screamo band from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Balance is their sophomore EP. They play a post-hardcore influenced brand of screamo, these songs aren't afraid to stretch out a little bit and let themselves breathe. These songs tend smoulder for a while before exploding and the singer has a great voice with a nice gravely shout.

The guitars bring a sense of melody that allows the songs to either focus in and stretch out or constantly change in search of some wisdom in a slowburn. The title track Balance is an awesome slab of pummeling screamo while 24 is awesome if you're down for shouts overtop of electric picking. Represarme is a great song and then the call and response vocals start, and Fragante finds a groove and explores it, getting lost in itself. If you like screamo with some post-hardcore, Balance will scratch that itch.
