Saosin Then and Now

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

I discovered Saosin during 2003 and THEY.BLEW.MY.MIND. At that time, screamo bands really blew the scene off its hinges. Saosin had fantastic guitar riffs and the drummer sounded like he had 8 arms while the vocalist screeched his lungs off. The video I uploaded here in Sanriotown (in hopes of enlightening you people) is for Seven Years, the very, very first single they released:

 The vocalist then was Anthony Green (inset). He had amazingly high singing voice and he screamed like a banshee. He was eccentric onstage and people often questioned his sexuality.

Sadly, he left the band and joined the band Circa Survive (which is equally good). He was replaced by a man named Cove Reber. Check him out.

Even his stage presence was a little sub-par compared to Mr. Green, he did lead the band to their first album release. Saosin reached all-new heights with him as the frontman.

What do you think? Who’s better? For me, I’m leaning more on Reber because he has much more vocal control, although Green has much more intense stage presence which is also important when it comes to ROCKING OUT.

Hey Hey Hey

Call me, Mr. Rock Out. :D Some of you might be asking what is “to rock out”? Well, to “rock out” is to… hmmm…. have you ever had that feeling that you just wanted to dance and jump around after (let’s say) hearing an amazing piece of music, or after watching a fantastic movie and all you want to do is tell people about it. “Rock out” can also be used to describe a band (or its members). Let me show you.

THIS is rocking out. Thanks for showing us, Mr. Claudio Sanchez of COheed & Cambria

This is Justin Shekoski of Saosin. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO WHAT HE JUST DID.

Moving on, rocking out, does the body AND spirit good because it let’s you celebrate the good vibes that’s coursing through your body. Or just when you’re having fun, you COULD say that you’re “rocking out”.

How to use the term:

“I’m rocking out with my Ipod”

“This movie makes me want to rock out”

“I’ve been rocking out too much. I’m dizzy.”

Yeah… something like that. :D
