Screamo is musical genre which came from emo and hardcore punk in the 1990's. This kind of music uses vocalists, people who scream a lot, instead of singers like most other bands use. The music usually is fast paced.
Screamo bands include Saetia, Orchid, Circle Takes the Square, Envy and Thursday.
The term is also used for bands that use some screaming but have plenty of normal singing in the music, even more singing than screaming. Examples of that include bands Silverstein, Hawthorne Heights and The Used.
