I am still bewildered by the fact that I have been in love with Cease Upon The Capitol for over a decade and I only heard DOLCIM for the first time last year. How in the hell did I miss this band? Luckily, when I started my distro I picked up the ‘Guillotine Ride’ cassette and was absolutely floored.

What does this sound like? Cease Upon The Capitol, obviously. The guitarist/vocalist from Cease Upon The Capitol created this band which, not surprisingly, sounds a lot like CUTC – throat-shredding screams, spacey post-hardcore riffing, lightning fast songs that still retain melody. It isn’t the same beast, but considering that the vocalist and guitarist is/was the same guy, there are definitely similarities and overlapping sounds. DOLCIM took what Cease Upon The Capitol perfected and dipped that fucker in acid. They sound like a corrosive, heavy and less melodic version of said previous band. I’m not going into a whole lot of detail here because I wasn’t aware of the band during their heyday and if you like Cease Upon The Capitol then you already have a pretty good grasp of their foundation and sound.

For those who have never heard about Cease Upon The Capitol, DOLCIM plays a very thick and suffocating brand of post-hardcore, screamo and maybe even thrash. The songs have bass all the way up to the meniscus. The drums will perforate your eardrums. The vocals will rip the cilia from inside your ears and the guitars jump between shredding, some lighter screamo moments and Cave In-style spaciness.

——————————————————-

EPs / SMALL FORMAT

2012 was a great EP-year, so here’s a reasonably long list …


25th Barren Womb – “The Origin of Faeces”

Versatile post-hardcore by a Norwegian duo.

Barren Womb


24th Torpedo Holiday – “s / t”

Willful, slate (post-) punk from Germany.

Torpedo Holiday


23rd Kabul Golf Club – “Le bal du rat mort”

Noisiger post-hardcore from Belgium, somewhere between the Blood Brothers, The Locust and Refused.

Kabul Golf Club


22nd The Beautiful Ones – “Birth of Desire”

part moshiger, partly melodic 90s hardcore with grower qualities.

The Beautiful Ones


21st EVA – “Pronounced EVA”

Metalcore Between the early 2000s and the post-core trend in the same period.

EVA


20th Rain Dance – “New Blood”

brutal chaos core board à la Everytime I Die and The Chariot.

Raindance


19th Endamori – “s / t”

ex-Cease Upon the Capitol / Dolcim-people with very ambitious project at the intersection of screamo, hardcore, post-rock and emo.

Endamori


18th Ruined Families – “s / t”

The best thing that you got to hear this year from Greece. Dirty hardcore with “over the top” vocals.

Ruined Families


17th Jowls – “Cursed”

Not as strong as last year’s “Cunt Punch”, but still better than most other modern screamo-influenced post-core bands.

Jowls


16th We’ll the Smiling – “New Objectivity”

typical nervous, complex post-math-indie-hardcore from the UK.

We'll the Smiling


15th Means to an End – “… and all the Colors have faded to gray”

screamo / emo sound like he should, on the one hand state, on the other hand Ebulliton-/Witching Hour-style.

Means to an End


14th Tongue– “/ / /”

from the context of Ten Thousand Leagues and John Cota. Experimental Emo / Post-HC material.

No Tongue


13th Petethepiratesquid – “The New Royalty”

now scattered across Germany, Sweden and France, which is so far the best material from the Math / emo / post-punk band.

Petethepiratesquid


12th Paan – “Sounds like Chewbacca is taking a shit”

better and more mature than “Finally all animals dead,” now more than screamo to Post Core / Trip Fontaine in indie-style.

Paan


11th Fitzcarraldo – “Oldenburg”

My favorite is the German instrumental rock band. A coherent overall composition!

Fitzcarraldo


10th Gnarwolves – “CRU”

Best Pop Punk from 2012, a bit like Blink 182 meets The Lawrece arm meets Taking Back Sunday.

Gnarwolves


09th Mörse – “s / t”

heavy groovy stoner hardcore from France.

Mörse


08th The Dashwood – “Mirage”
Honest pop music from Germany. Furthermore, a clear increase in the debut EP!

“90s emo / mosh-Terror from Berlin” – raw, pure, yet diverse.

Afterlife Kids


06th We avoid – “Petrichor”

Stop’n’Go-New School Hardcore from Italy. Old Botch meet Dangers.

We avoid


05th We are in the Country – “s / t”

. Emotionally stirring screamo / emo from France with the right balance of loud and quiet

We are in the Country


04th Coastlines – “Life in Shifts”

Late 90er-Hardcore/Metalcore. A fusion of early Poison the Well, late Have Heart and Emmure on top form.

Coastlines


03. Pride and ego down – “Moving Cloud Mind”

indie-meets-post-core, equally violent as beautiful, equally catchy and creative.

Pride and ego down


02. Between Your Mind and Tongue – “Building the Foundations to Future Ruins”

The shortest representatives. 3 Songs, 7 minutes – about the same as if City of Caterpillar get to the point. The most promising new screamo / emo band of the year!

Between Your Mind and Tongue


01. Black Kites – “The Last Three Songs”

swan song of the best and most important hardcore band in recent years. 3 perfect, unique songs for the EP of the year!

Black Kites
