Hi !
We are Chaviré, from Nantes, France !

Quickly, we are playing a kind of emo / screamo, influenced by the French emo scene of the late 90's / mid 00's - in the sound and the ethics - as bands like Amanda Woodward, Daïtro, Belle Époque and labels like Stonehenge, Pure Heart or Ebullition... Basically, we're based on DIY practices and ethics, we are standing against sexist, authoritarian, racist, homophobic and more globally oppressive attitudes, in favor of more bearable or fair alternatives. we are CHAVIRÉ and we come from Nantes, France.

We released our first demo on CDs and tapes. Artwork done by Phoenix Grayson.
If you want you can streaming and download it for free on our bandcamp.

Questions, review, translations or anything, you can write to us at :

Dooie Mus

I have not checked my email for this blog in at least a year. I just checked it and i'm still getting demo requests and people emailing their recordings and links, which is way cool. Sorry to all those who sent an email and i have not responded. I will TRY to get to them. Here is an email i just got:


We are ‘Dooie Mus’, a 2-piece screamo/emo band from Haarlem (The Netherlands). We just recorded our first demo, it’s for free on our bandcamp. It would mean the world to us if you wanted to listen to some of our songs and maybe share your thoughts on them.

Dooie Mus Bandcamp

Dooie Mus litarly means Dead Sparrow in Dutch. It's used in the expresion ‘iemand blij maken met een dooie mus’ (making somebody happy with a dead sparrow) which means making somebody happy with something that turns about to be very disappointing.

We started writing some songs in the beginning of 2016, which we recorded ourself when the summer started (2 mics and a computer).
If you want to respond or ask any questions feel free to contact our facebook-page: or the bandcamp-page:

Kind regards,
Joran & Danny from Dooie Mus

Hardcore from 2007. Hard to believe that this was almost 10 years ago already. Where the fuck does the time go!?!???? I wonder where these kids are now? Probably all accountants and lawyers....
5 rippers that come in at a little over 5 mins. i put them all in one file. Deal with it. It's over so fast you really don't need them separated.

Mark Bowman - Vox
Marty - Bass
