These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Dork Age: Malone regards Starve as a major one of these, as well as United to a decidedly lesser degree. The fans are more or less in agreement.
Signature Song: "The Face of My Innocence" and "A Diamond for Disease".
Win Back The Crowd: Lepers Caress and Unwelcome created a not-insignificant amount of renewed interest in the band after a string of lackluster albums that gave people the impression that Arsis was a flash-in-the-pan incapable of repeating the success of their early material, and Malone even said that they were his attempt to redeem the band and reward the fans who stuck with them.
