DROP DEAD, GORGEOUS
BE MINE, VALENTINE
Despite half the band still being in high school, Drop Dead, Gorgeous manage to stir quite the calculated mess up on its six-song EP. BE MINE, VALENTINE is stocked with screamo from top to bottom, as the screeching vocals are relentless, as are the jarring guitar noises heard on tracks like “Well, I Never Knew You Were So Much Fun”. If The Bled crossed over with Poison the Well, the end result may just be this Denver quintet, whose high-pitched guitar attack and demonic bottom end make for quite the unsettling listen.
