Autarkeia- Me And Goliath - 2014- Split LP

Autarkeia is a four piece screamo band from Fort Meyers, Florida. This split with Me And Goliath is their third release. They have also released a split with Cloud Rat and feature members of Jiyuna and Merkit. Autarkeia play a dark, crushing brand of screamo. These songs build to a thrashy, moody peak and then shake and themselves apart. My favourites on this side are Spectacles and Concrete Walls.

Me And Goliath is a three piece screamo band from Kent, UK. The split with Autarkeia is their third release. They have also put out a split with Grave Shovel...Let's Go! Me And Goliath play a hardcore influenced brand of screamo bringing in some chaos to fuel things. These songs move along as pretty straight forward screamo until the chaos starts as the ground collapses beneath them. My favourites on this side are Y.A.M.E.A.E.W. and Captains Curse. If you're looking for some heavy, intense and chaotic screamo, Autarkeia and Me And Goliath's Split courtesy of React With Protest will serve well.
