Every Time I Die has been one of the better metalcore bands in the past decade or so, with releases like Hot Damn! and New Junk Aesthetic. During their roots, it was clear they listened to good metalcore, namely Botch, but on their debut EP, they stick a little too close to their influences. That being said, opener "The Emperor's New Clothes" is actually a really good song. Elsewhere, though, they sound so much like their influences that it becomes boring, and with the awful vocal quality, it doesn't translate into good metalcore. Fans of ETID will appreciate this, but if you're just starting to get into them, start elsewhere.
