Maybe if post-hardcore wasn’t as huge of a phenomenon in the early aughts, it would seem less cheesy today. That’s not to say that there aren’t folks that do it well, no matter how many bands have followed the same formulaic emo-wail + high-pitched scream ÷ double bass breakdown. One band keeping the scent of the scene pungent is Raleigh, North Carolina’s Alesana. As a band that has been putting out records since the golden-age of sideswiped two-tone hair and Norma Jean shirts, you can’t blame these guys from playing a style of music that they helped make popular over a decade ago.
