So let me suggest a band from north of the Americas that you may or may not have heard of...
Alexisonfire? As I understand, in Indiana at least, they're really popular with hardcore scene kids. LOL Which is kinda... well... I guess I'm notorious for hating scene anything, but whatever creams your twinkie.
If you haven't heard of them, I suggest you sample some of their music - "Pulmonary Archery", "Counterparts and Number Them", "Accidents" and "Waterwings" are their best stuff, I think, to start out with, anyway.
If you have, what are your opinions? I'm genuinely curious about this. All opinions welcome!
