Sound — 10
The sound is just amazing, there is not a riff or drum beat to be dissed. there guitar riffs come moderate to hard to learn and the drop A tuning gives it heavy effect it has.
Lyrics — 10
Every lyric in this album has a true meaning which is why i think it is so good because everyone can relate one way or another, for example "Smothered" is all about being in a relationship and it's like the other person is inside and trying to push out, "You pushed from the inside, you pushed from the inside out." Or in "Dead to me" jonny santos is trying to say hey i don't give a fuck about you and gradually getting more pissed off and the song explodes into alot of screaming and heacy music.
Overall Impression — 10
Self Destructive Pattern is a high quality album with songs for every mood with high meaning and good musicians and is well worth buying and definatly their best amlbum, in my opinion.
