Atalanta - 2013 - Tainted

Atalanta is a three piece scream band from Chicago, Illinois, USA. Tainted is their debut EP. They feature members and ex members of Half Milk (Chicago), Josh Raymond (Chicago), Walter and Perry (Seattle), and At Yalta (St. Louis). They play a dark, oppressive brand of screamo with the desperate, screamed vocals buried in the mix underneath crushing guitars. The guitars are sludgy which serves to create an even more depressive atmosphere. If you like your screamo buried in layers of gloomy, chaotic guitars Tainted will serve quite well.
