Recreant - Self-Titled (2012)

Recreant, from Florida, has a female vocalist and very prominent violin

"Cheddar wanted a screamo band, B wanted a grind band, Tristan wanted a crust band, and Jesse wanted a metal band, so we just threw it all together, mixed it with that Florida flavor, and made what we like to call swampcore."

Jesse Beavers - Bass | Tristan Jennings - Drums | Cheddar Kleinheinz - Guitars/Vocals | B. Friesen - Violin/Vocals

Recreant is one of my favorite "crust with strings" bands. Make sure to give this a listen! Also, if you haven't heard their previous release (Snakes and Vultures) yet then do yourself a favor and check that out as well
