Canadian post-hardcore

Their music is characterized by turbulent and explosive dynamics with intricate guitar melodies. Consisting of five friends, they formed in late 2001 as the result of a three-band break up.

The band’s name is a sort-of homage to an adult entertainer named Alexis Fire, who claimed to be the world’s only lactating contortionist stripper. Alexisonfire’s lyrical topics range from relationship troubles to go-karting. They have two primary vocalists, screaming duties carried out by George Pettit, and singing by Dallas Green, with support from Wade MacNeil.

OK - another recommendation - I listened to heavy rock 40 years ago so I've been here and left, but has merit. I just find all the niches/names confusing - I try to ignore them anyway - just listen to all types and enjoy.
