The heaviness of the crunch tone guitar is what makes the overall sound of the album very heavy, yet a times there are tempo changes where you would hear some clean tone segments which kind of makes the album and songs wholeheartedly diverse. There weren't much lead guitar work that's extensive, but that's besides the point I'm trying to make out here. Aesthetics is a wide field in a philosophical sense, and music would be a form of aesthetics, since it is a form of expression, human expression in this way gets a jolt of creativity alongside originality. This band just crushes its' fellow competitors simply because they have mastered the form of metalcore uniquely and imaginatively.
Production was solid, crisp, capturing the heart of the music without any lapse in instruments getting unheard. The vocals range between that in like Fear Factory via 'Demanufacture' and 'Obsolete' (1995 & 1998 respectively), but I'd say that there are more instances of clean, heavy throat (which dominates) and high end screams. Seriously, this band captures all forms of sounds in riffing and tempo changes with such candor, it's very admirable. I was thinking to myself "oh no, not metalcore", but have changed my view since they not only esp-out to metalcore, they also throw in a taste of death metal in a way, just not AS extreme.
Each track has different luminosity and overall the band doesn't borrow anything from other bands, all of their compositions are in summation to their metaphysical sort of creativity. No other metalcore act has illicit riff structures that this band portrays, at least not from what I've heard from other acts for example Lamb Of God or Killswitch Engage. I don't like either band for my own reasons. However, Psychopathic Daze has this admirable sound to it and is supremely higher above these other bands even though the others have been around longer. The music is the highlight, but the vox seem to juggle around the heavy sounds and in some instances augment the music.
Yes I was highly skeptical about my opinion on metalcore in general, but if you're into metal and don't like this, I'll eat my jabber on this review. No other metalcore act can surpass what you hear on this EP. Even though we're not talking full-length yet, but I'm supremely confident that it has a ton of innovative ideas shown in the musical sense. I'd have to admit there's a load of talent here, not just guitarists slapping riffs together and juxtaposing it to just be sold-they actually take pride in their outputs and level off the competition to destroy their opponents. Own this today, it's worth your weight in true, full grade metal passion.
