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
Aside from Autumn I (which I dislike due to the vocals) this is one great EP. Looking forward to the full-length album a lot, which will be released this year according to Jake Rogers himself (I've read it on the Facebook page). Obviously he's heavily influenced by Agalloch as I never heard music more similar to Agalloch before. But that's definitely a good thing in case of Gallowbraid.
Seriously, Salt Lake City, Utah is becoming a great place for bands seeing as both Gallowbraid and Caladan Brood are from there.
