04:37 - Apothecary I'll still always prefer SYL over Devin solo work, but that's more of a personal thing than anything else, as City and Alien were both huge stress relievers that helped me through a lot of shit in middle and high school
04:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Deconstruction took a long time to grow on me. It was the first Devy album I ever heard and I'm still somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer density of it, but I've grown to love most of the album now.
04:22 - Apothecary Deconstruction was really good and funny as fuck but I've had mixed emotions about it lately because of all the guest musicians on it. Sometimes it feels a little too grandiose for its own good
I've kind of developed a taste for deathcore lately and now non ironically enjoy Suicide Silence, Carnifex, Whitechapel, and even some Emmure (Speaker Of The Dead is good, everything else is still pretty lame) but this band just always came across as horrible to me and this EP has not helped their status... Who the fuck is their target audience? Its not "metal" enough for the 16 year old's who want to piss off their parents, it has screaming vocals which makes it off putting to hard rock fans, and its really just horribly written and uncatchy.
