Rainer maria is a cool example of emo at its best. People may not think of it as this but really if u listen to the lyrics hard u can c it. ther latest albums show that they r maturing more and thats not bad. they r growing out of the emo stage. few favs - summer and longer, Portland, Rain yr hand

Unparalled emo

In their first and most relevant release, Rainer Maria introduces the world to a music previously little explored. Dueling male and female vocals (dropped in later albums) coupled with cutting guitars and raw, angry lyrics compose this heartbreaking album.

This EP is the defining sound to a genre that has become lost in commercialism. If you enjoy this I highly recommend Braid, Cap'n Jazz, and American Football.
