The first cut here, “In Venere Veritas,” is decorated with some hints of bygone goth, like the Cure-esque keyboards and minor chord arpeggios that are slightly reminiscent of the Mission U.K. But the driving chorus is pure Generation Hot Topic emo. Most of Screamworks: Love In Theory and Practice abounds in similarly melodic alternative rock with a crystalline radio-friendly production and lyrics that mostly muse on severance. Screamworks is a break-up album. Frontman Ville Valo went on record to say that these songs comprise a sonic diary of an ended affair and that they also represent a cathartic, primal scream. “Heartkiller” is a perfect example with its pained (albeit melodramatic) lyrics that jump right off the pages of Valo’s Moleskine notebook, while ‘80s-inspired keyboards pulse under winding guitars and a simple but steady meat-and-potatoes drum beat. “Katherine Wheel” is another standout with poetic lyrics bonded to the barbed song hooks and doubled vocal tracks with melodies that closely follow the lead guitar line.
