about

Discover the intense combination of emotional songwriting, heartfelt lyrics and moving live performance often referred to as "emo." Awesome or evil, it's undeniably good. Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil is packed with 19 songs (72 minutes) from some of the genres most influential / seminal bands. Hear an extraordinary and powerful style of music that possesses the ability to stir strong emotion like no other. "It's a wonder why anyone else bothers with compilations when Deep Elm are the masters of the mix tape. Consistent in their diligently compiled nature, there's certainly nothing to complain about on Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil. For yet another stunner of a compilation, look no further" says Rock Sound UK. As if Version 1 wasn't enough, Version 2 is also available. (DER-379)

"It's a wonder why anyone else bothers with compilations when Deep Elm are the masters of the mix tape. There's certainly nothing to complain about on Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil. Powerful energy fueled by beaten guitars and pure rock fury. For yet another stunner of a compilation, look no further..." - Rock Sound

"Nineteen songs from the rising stars of the melodic hardcore underground, the best are represented on Emo Is Awesome / Emo Is Evil. Intelligent, poetic noise that comes from the anger and energy of punk rock. You feel the drums and banshee guitars kicking out in adrenalin overdrive. Deep Elm has reason to be proud of its commitment to this genre because the strain they offer is a purer, more virulent, more dangerous strain than any of the other slow clowns being labeled emo." - Culture Bunker

Track Name: Planes Mistaken For Stars - Copper & Stars
and i don't want to say that i wasted my days chasing instead of catching keeping. wasting wishes on copper and stars. i'm wanting you to save me and i'm not only asking. because i can face this falling it's just the taking that i fell. i'm breaking down
Track Name: Red Animal War - Jambalaya
dove-like stares. so blank. so long like prayers. that never filled your self-made hole inside our hearts. so don't you talk? no, no. don't you feel? no, no. don't you hurt? no, no. this is not what you believed in. down these stairs we had our fun i swear. we've got more feelings in our lost and lonely hearts. so don't you talk about it? don't you feel some doubt. and don't it hurt? god protect. is this not what you believed in? i was denied tonight. so let's just hold our hands out. everyone is down. so far so in-between. does every girl think the same? hon, take care, i heard the news, i'm scared. they said the sky was bright, brilliant with our cause. but don't you talk to him and don't you feel something and don't you hurt ever? this is not what you believed in. i was denied tonight

unwinding stairs and transparent hands. unforgiving eyes. is a gentle crutch. wedded stare. undying prayer. your innocence is lies. trace the departure. find the failure. rip the suture
Track Name: Slowride - Computer
weakness breeds disaster. meekness breathes it all. check yourself at always. and you may never fall. dysfunction by design. there's something wrong with mine. you'll look and never see. the truth that lies inside of me. the lies i simply can't believe. the true love i would never leave for you. do you understand
Track Name: Lewis - Feet On The Ground
who will put my feet back on the ground, when there is none to be found, at all? but you only speak a word, and the void gives birth. it's all lost, meaningless. make a path, only to lose your way. and you're always wanting more, a stranger to the shore. you keep a watchful eye on the horizon. who will gather remnants of a man, cast broad like seeds from a hand? but you measure everything, you fill the spaces in between. it's all lost, meaningless. make a path, only to lose your way. crave, crawl, grab at ghosts on the wall. and you're always wanting more, a stranger to the shore. you keep a watchful eye on the horizon. crave, crawl, grab at ghosts on the wall
Track Name: Benton Falls - Angel On Hiatus
it's come to this. i swear this time my heart won't miss. i've clinched these fists for far too long. a broken house. with gates made from broken promises. but nobody's home. so here i sit. it's the light that wakes me. but the time that breaks me down. like water drops. why won't this stop. dripping on my halo. these angel wings of mine. they haven't seen the light in weeks. let alone fly. it's got me down. and who's gonna save me from falling to the ground. you might as well finish me. grab with both hands. and rip out these wings. now watch me fall
Track Name: Brandtson - Boys Lie

Track Name: The Appleseed Cast - Forever Longing The Golden Sunsets
this county road. i've fallen away. this country road. to a place unknown. i traveled away. i fall into nothing. the sea side road. has fallen away. i have to go. my place is sold. i've fallen away. i fall into nothing. the sky has turned again. you can't fight. and you won't die. memory. it's tearing you apart. you won't run. and you can't die. memory. the sunset gold. i've fallen away. traded away. a sea side day. i've fallen away. i fall into nothing. i promise you with warm salt air. hallowed breezes through your hair. days on end and days long gone. the beach and the fires and the nights are gone. flow. tide. ebb. road. night. sky. sand. home. the fair in the park. by the sea in my heart. is never gone
Track Name: Camber - Hollowed-Out
takes me down underneath its weight. it is my master. i will drown underneath its sea it spells disaster. underneath its sea all's lost and found. until it's swallowed whole what's yours no way to ever know how much this can weigh. hollowed-out and broken. feeling i have lost control. and everything is gray. my dark cloud hovers overhead. constant companion. wrapped in dark shroud. lie alone in bed bottomless canyon. lie alone in bed all's lost and found. until it's swallowed whole what's yours no way to ever know how much this can weigh. hollowed-out and broken. feeling i have lost control. i am so tired of this conscious sleep. lethargic, low and uninspired. sinking ever deep. wallow in wet cement. i'm mired. crush me underneath it all. pull me from the weight that squeezes down
Track Name: Cross My Heart - Dornier
snow flakes melt. running down the rotor. falling like teardrops. this trip is almost over. strike back at the hand. held my breath for a moment. waited for the words to come. still none surrender feelings faster. forever's fleeting moment passed. and you have too. don't ever waste a single moment. flying today. finding my way home. i wouldn't stay home. first time flying
Track Name: This Beautiful Mess - Clean
you went out there on your own. you went out there to carry the weight. and nobody here goes free. you went to wear the crown of thorns. to throw the first stone at yourself. cause nobody here is clean. and you gave yourself away. every finger is pointing at you. everything is accusing you. everybody is needing a scapegoat. so you got out there. you're hit in the face. you're spit in the face. now where is your god. and where is your grace
Track Name: Hundred Hands - Farewell
you supposed i could. well i might. write these wrong i've written down. with my pen and my hand. i've drawn them out. you are all i have. nothing more than a nightstand of memories that fade away. and you chill me down to the bone. and i am never more than i am with you now. and what was put down was a let down in my book. nothing matters anyhow. leave my heart out of this. it's more that i'll commit. farewell goodbye forever
Track Name: Into The Well
don't believe it. it's all lies. don't let it get into your heart. you always got along. it was your fear that made you strong. don't believe it can't get better. this is what you have. this is what you will get. nothing of that matters. matters anyhow. you gave it all away. cause you really had to. and you will never reach it. never reach it now. don't let it get you. cause you'd fall out. you better stay behind that line. you learned to live this way. so don't you care about what they say. trust yourself it's so much safer. turn off the light. and lock the door. let no one know. no one at all. it's been too long. since you were out. and no more
