#128: KASSIOPEIA - “s/t”
in the mid- and late-90ies there were lots of “emo-violence”-bands in germany. they didn’t really have a homogeneous sound. but the kind of singing, the poetic lyrics and the emo-attitude was quite the same. this really made a difference to other scenes in other countries that were more violent or had more machismo. not that something like that wasn’t happening as well, but it was slightly different. KASSIOPEIA was one of those bands.
this 7”, that was recorded in 1995, is like a fanzine. between the cardboard-cover there are several pages full of personal texts, lyrics, political messages and some kind of poems. the whole thing is really well done.
the four songs have this kind of fragile-emo-feeling, but turn out really loud at the end. the screamed lyrics and all the guitar-/drum-work is some kind of german emo-violence - if you want to label or call it like that.
