More reasons to l-u-v emo!!!

The roster for an upstart booking agency booking "indie rock and softer genres". Current artists include the WAY TOO LENGTHY AND INTENSELY MONICKERED:

Between The Buried And Me, A Life Once Lost , Scars Of Tomorrow, Premonitions Of War, Curl Up And Die, Embrace Today, The Judas Cradle, Nodes Of Ranvier, A Perfect Murder, Fear Before The March Of Flames, Salt The Earth, On Broken Wings, If Hope Dies , & More.

Ok, lets take 19 seconds and examine themes: Save for three, all connotations of death. Salt the Earth sounds like a diet regimen and a grammatical error. Nodes of Ranvier makes me think Swiss elf with a biblical disease. Embrace Today, my guess is a straight edge 88 posi-core band, with touches of Fugazi.

Torture, death, failure - what are they communicating - that they are destoyed? destroyers? Brave young men facing their mortality? This is so curious-making and confounding to me!

those band names sound like they came straight from Oprah's book club! the one thing they have going is they can make some good acronyms: FBMOF, NOR, LOL, etc.

"indie rock and softer genres"?

BtBaM is a metalcore band. I know those kids and
they are nothing of the emo vein. A Life Once Lost
is on Jake Bannon from Converge's label. Curl Up
and Die is another hardcore band. Hmmmm...

Maybe this booking agency is trying to broaden
the definition of indie rock for that mass appeal?
Is this some kind of hip irony that I'm too old
(you know, 18+) to understand?
