Solid stuff per usual from DoD. Upbeat heavy and melodic banger. DoD, are you incapable of writing a catchy anthem-like choruses mixed in with solid instrumental sections? Sealed, packed, sent and delivered each time so well.

WOW. Woah. This is captivating. I'm just speechless. Easiest 5/5 I've given out. Just wow, holy shit. And those vocals, what the hell. Pretty vague review I know, but just listen to this track and get on this level. Lost Woods, thank you.

Wow, punk-rock hardcore goodness. I think YES YES YES YES YES. Um and thank you for a bass solo. That bridge with the dissonant notes impressed me, and the ending of the song really topped it off nicely. Double time - icing on the cake.

The lyrical content hit quite deep amongst the somewhat happy vibe of the song, a juxtaposition that makes me want to scream out the lyrics. "But I'll much to prefer to shine again someday," is such a positive glint in this song, it's uplifting. That half time bridge had me hooked.

First six seconds and I was already impressed. And it just got better from there on. I seriously love that lyric more than anything. "You could be the one. I could be the zero." Wow. The track is produced to perfection. I feel like the song could've had one more chorus at the end of it to polish it off but other than that, damn. Nostalgic alternative rock tunes for days.

Really felt the emotion in this song as "I'm sorry" repeats, begging for forgiveness over and over. I enjoyed the lyrics and the flow of melody; it captivated me and had me well enveloped in the relatable story. I like how the guitar enters in the second verse and compliments the piano line. The song swells, and Connor does a great job showing his emotions alongside the crescendo...

I enjoyed the lyrics and the flow of melody; it captivated me and had me well enveloped in the relatable story. I like how the guitar enters in the second verse and compliments the piano line. The song swells, and Connor does a great job showing his emotions alongside the crescendo and fall of the instrumentals. I can heard the Death Cab for Cutie inspiration for sure.

OH THIS SURPRISED ME. I didn't expect those synths to kick in at all, I just expected it to be piano throughout. You've got such an amazing vocal quality and it works so well in this track. I can hear the Taylor Swift influence vocally and the Halsey electronic vibe, but you've made it your own. When the falsetto initially enters with the bassy synth, it really blew me away. Beau...

Uh huh, yes thank you, this is glorious. This song sounds like it will go off in a live setting. With a relatable chorus that people can scream along to, this song gave me goosebumps. Thank you for my favourite new pop punk track. Big love.

Hell yes, this waters my crops. So HEAVY that I think I've found my new favourite track to workout to so I can alleviate all that weight. Gosh, how low do you have the tuning on your strings? Wow.

I can hear the Maroon 5 influence and really get those Justin Timberlake vibes from James' vocal performance. This track is phenomenal, really fun, groovy and composed to a tee. Love the ambience in the first chorus to continue right onto those tenuto staccatos. Catchy hooks absolutely everywhere and a sweet little singalong section. STR bring me back to listen to this song over and over.

Really living for this. I said it in my last review for Suburban and I'll say it again; move aside Limp Bizkit. I really love the hybrid blend of rap, electronic and metal. This is a VIBE and I'm addicted to it. Guaranteed to be a mosh pit of fun + head banging galore. Aggressive to the core with a reverby guitar finish, what a wild ride of a track.

I seriously don't have to say anything other than you are a legend and each release has been so strong that your upcoming EP is going to be too good to handle. And THE ENDING. To incorporate those heavy guitars and drums in the end to polish it off, my jaw dropped. So uniquely your own.

My first initial thought was, "that production quality! Damn!" I love this track so much and the catchiness of it. A memorable chorus that everyone can sing along to and a sweet bridge section. Matt's raw vocals are so unique and I really can't get enough of it. Great track guys!

Loving each new release more and more and the way that you present yourselves as a band.

Woah, listening to this is like a mad throwback to 00s rock. I just got a massive nostalgic hit to my ear drums, huge The Living End vibes for me, especially with the vocal delivery. This track is a short punchy track that will have your head bopping along for sure.
