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
Featuring seven tracks of guitar driven metal laden with double time blasting riffs, some positively S-L-O-W punishing riffs, lots of feed back and the fact these guys just RAWK makes this an enjoyable album worth checking out for those who like their metal with a nice coat of sludge.
This really surprised me - they almost sound like a completely different band now. I get the impression that they're leaning more towards stoner than sludge with this release, but it's still great. While Dark Ages might not be as aggressive as Quiet Earth, this one keeps you on your toes.
