Enta - Anodes - 2014 - Split

Enta is a screamo band from Champaign, Illinois, USA. The Split with Anodes is their third EP. Enta plays an atmospheric brand of midwestern screamo, injecting both noise and space as well as lengthening the songs with melodic post-rock. In contrast to Anodes, Enta has a very clear, melodic sound. The contrast between the two, melodic and reaching versus heavy and dark make for a compelling split.

Anodes is a four piece screamo band from St. Louis, Missouri. The Split with Enta is their second release. Anodes is a blistering post-hardcore punk band that powers through these songs and takes no prisoners with their crusty attack. The singer has a desperate, dirty voice that bellows constantly and instrumentally, especially compared to Enta, Anodes are chaotic, dark and claustrophobic.
