Ephemera - 2015 - Ephemera

Ephemera is an international screamo band. Ephemera is their debut EP. This is a collaborative project started by Gabriel from Heart On My Sleeve, he wrote the guitar parts for these songs and then recruited people from various bands to add their own parts without ever hearing what the other musicians where contributing. This is basically the Swedish mafia of screamo with drums from Shawn of Coma Regalia on two tracks and the talent and ability of these bands is on full display.

 These three songs are diverse yet of a complete, powerful whole. It's impossible for me to pick a favourite song as all of these are excellent examples of Swedish screamo. Each of these three songs has different people playing on each, in total these bands are: Heart On My Sleeve, Suffocate For Fucks Sake, Vi som älskade varandra så mycket, Totem Skin, Sore Eyelids, Shirokuma, Anemone, Via Fondo, Trembling Hands, Rainmaker & Coma Regalia. Thanks to Miss The Stars for pointing this out. This is a high water music in terms of modern screamo. Highly recomended not to mention essential listening.
