I see people write in posts “I like all music except for screamo.” Now, I’m sure there is an official definition somewhere out there, but what do you consider “screamo?”
Perhaps something similar to one of these? Maybe something different? Let me know!
(A post hardcore band)
Glassjaw - Mu Empire
(Band with all hardcore screams)
(Song with mostly cleans, some screams)
Bullet For My Valentine - Hand of Blood
(Song with almost all screams)
Napoleon - Brought Here to Suffer
(Song with almost all screams, but heavier)
Volumes - The Columbian faction

I listened to like 10 seconds of the first two videos- those two definitely are screamo to me. Basically... it's anything where there's prolonged screaming throughout the song. I wish I could gain an appreciation for this type of music, but it really just feels like a complete assault on the ears :/

Well there was 'emo' music. When those kids started growling, that's screamo. I suppose it might as well be synonymous with metalcore, arguably metalcore is just the next step in the same direction.
So I call it the transitory step for that strain of metal.
Now of course whenever anyone says "I like all music except for screamo" they're using it to describe *anything* a little too hard for them because they have no knowledge of metal genres.
