* UncommonTime: Part and parcel of being progressive music, though it probably doesn't show up in every song. "Kill the Switch" has a few examples, though it also has long passages in CommonTime. The second album has quite a few songs that nearly take this to MathRock levels and earned them comparisons to Music/TheDillingerEscapePlan.

* LeadDrummer: Caleb's drumming has also been singled out for quite a bit of praise. Really, there isn't a weak performer in this ensemble - and given the technicality of their competitions, there really can't be.

* GenreBusting, GenreRoulette, NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Ain't it so much. They're pretty difficult to categorise given how many styles they fit into their sound. You're liable to hear PostHardcore, {{screamo|Music}}, {{emo|Music}}, {{grindcore}}, ProgressiveRock, PostRock, and ProgressiveMetal, but they also throw elements of {{folk|Music}}, BlackMetal, MathRock, HardcorePunk, {{metalcore}}, [[HarshNoise noise]], PostPunk, and several other genres into some of their songs. Strangely, the band's own Drew Speziale categorised ''As the Roots Undo'' as "just a PunkRock record from 2004", which is about the most unassuming description one could imagine of their music.

* FadingIntoTheNextSong: Basically all of the song transitions on their two full-length albums, to the point that it's often difficult to tell where one ends and the next begins without looking at one's music player. The self-titled EP is an exception; the only transition that employs this is "Comes With the Fall" into "Houdini Logic".

* LoudnessWar: Both albums are pretty squished, although ArtisticLicense may apply. It should be noted that both albums have wide dynamic shifts throughout, but when they get loud, they clip really badly.

It should be noted that both albums have wide dynamic shifts throughout, but when they get loud, they clip really badly. Strangely, their side of the pg.99 split seems to have been an exception. It's possible they didn't bother because it was a vinyl-only release and the average volume of the format is physically limited by the nature of the medium.
