At the forefront of melodic punk for the past 15 years stands Burlington, Ontario's Silverstein. This band rocks hard. It's not too melodic, however, because then you'd be talking pop punk here, and you'd be doing it without me. It's more an aggressive atonal meandering between the notes and overall drive that makes Silverstein unique and worth a look-see.
