Photo of Daïtro

Daïtro was a French screamo band that played in what some might call “the French [or, European] style” (see also: Le Pré Où Je Suis Mort). They were highly influential as a band, influencing countless post-hardcore bands from Europe, the Americas, Japan, and elsewhere. Drummer Benoît Desvignes was also a member of screamo/post-rock/math rock outfit Mihai Edrisch. The members of Daïtro went on to pursue other musical projects, like Bâton Rouge, 12XU, the solo works of Samuel Moncharmont, &c. Founding Daïtro member Julien Paget created the Echo Canyon record label.

Daïtro’s music is characterised by somewhat elaborate use of block chords; Daïtro’s sound is easily recognized by the kinds of voicings they used. The melodies of Daïtro are often subtle yet poignant, weaving through the gradual counterpoint of the walls of chords that they use. Even the detatched melodies and riffs are themselves often derived from broken chords. Their vocal stylings are almost exclusively screamed and/or spoken. In spite of this, Daïtro’s music comes off as strangely “melodic”, in the sense of pop-punk or perhaps even melodic hardcore. Combining this with a clear post-rock influence (think Envy), Daïtro had a very unique sound that helped to cement them in the pantheon of screamo greats.

notes on the distributions

The first track on “Des Cendres, Je Me Consumme” (here listed as “[intro]”) is actually unlisted on the original release. As a result, this track is not only given various names by various sources, but it is also sometimes listed as “Mon Corps”, which is actually the second track on the album. This results in such listings getting every single track name wrong, and leaving the last one (rather than the first) untitled.

Daïtro’s contribution to “This Is Your Life” is sometimes listed as being untitled. The distribution of “This Is Your Life” given here only includes Daïtro’s contribution.

Because Daïtro appears on two distinct split records that also feature Italian punks Raein — on each of which Daïtro effectively contributes the same tunes — some sources (including Rate Your Music and Discogs) confound and/or conflate the two albums. This sometimes leads to inconsistent track listings. Also, “La Rock = Un Bateau Ivre” is often simply “Un Bateau Ivre” (or sometimes even “La Rock”).

The untitled Daïtro / Raein split has two distributions: the first contains the entire record in VBR (V0) MP3, and the second contains Daïtro’s side of the split in CBR 320kb/s MP3, apparently sourced from the “2002-2005” compilation record. Because both are of dubious quality and origins, both are supplied.

Raein’s contributions to “The Harsh Words As The Sun” are sometimes listed as “Döden Marscherar Åt Väst Part 1” and “Döden Marscherar Åt Väst Part 2”, as they are originally from Raein’s “Döden Marscherar Åt Väst”.

The distribution of “The Emo Armageddon” given here only includes Daïtro’s contribution.

Ampere’s and Daïtro’s contributions to their split record are spread across two digital releases. Ampere’s is represented by the first two tracks of “The First Five Years” (linked within the distributions below).

At least one release of the Daïtro / Sed Non Satiata split places Sed Non Satiata’s material before Daïtro’s, i.e. swaps sides A and B. As a result, some listings will reflect that order. The listing used here is the one used most often, and the one that appeared on the original release.

The tracks on “Y” have no real titles, so some sources will give different names to the tracks because the first two (here listed as “1a” and “1b”) are sometimes treated as a single track: “1”, or sometimes as two separate tracks, but instead titled “1” and “2”. The listing here follows the listing on Daïtro’s official bandcamp page.
