in 2003 came The Assistant’s second lengthy affair [album]. it’s significantly more metal than the previous album. a bit like After School Knife Fight. there were parts on the previous posted album that sounded like this album, but as a whole this one is far heavier. there are fast grindcore parts and devastating hardcore breakdowns, all of which totally destroy, but there are also some intricate melodic content in here. it’s just hidden far more than the in the songs featured on the previous post. most of this is extremely heavy technical screamo/metal. the song lengths have also changed noticeably. the previous post had twelve songs, and those songs were in total around four minutes shorter than the eight songs on this album are in total. the longest song is as much as 8:35 long. and you’ll find no ambient parts in the middle, or lengthy intros or outros. just devastation and madness. this album destroys all. get it!
