Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has A Body Count
Released: Jul 2005
Before he was Skrillex, Sonny Moore was the frontman for From First To Last, a melody-conscious band teetering on the border between pop punk and emo. Contrast is the order of the day, as the band shuttles between serrated riffs and clean, placid passages; Moore's close-harmonized vocals sketch an arc that soars far past the bounds of bathos, when they're not dissolving into Drano-drinking yowls. It doesn't necessarily sound like Skrillex, but you can hear Moore's fondness for emotional overload in every gut-wrenching measure.
