- DVSR (2015)
- Therapy EP (2017)
- Anti-Love Song / Destructive Romance: "Fatal Attraction" and "Detox".
- Darker and Edgier: As a whole, the band is often described as heavier version of Hacktivist.
- Djent: The main influence.
- Evil Laughter: "Slave to the Beat"
- Fun with Acronyms: Their name means "Designed Via Strength and Respect".
- Genre-Busting: A djent band with rapped vocals, Nu Metal influence, Metalcore breakdowns and ambient clean guitar parts - it's all about them.
- Harsh Vocals: Inverted; along with Tesseract, DVSR are one of the very few djent bands who use no harsh vocals or Metal Scream at all. However, the near-absense of clean singing in favor of aggressive rapping leads the band to be Rated M for Manly.
- Love Is a Drug: We're back to "Detox".Cuz now I'm just addicted, restricted, conflicted, prescribed, a slave to your kiss I'm just addicted
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: A solid 8, thanks to clean verses. Many of their riffs and breakdowns may squirt to 9 or even 10 though. However, the song "Remission" is only 2 as it contains no distorted guitar riffs at all. "Ready For War" is only 1 for being a straight-forward hip-hop track.
- Motor Mouth / Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Very fast flow by Matthew Youkhana, especially in "Ready For War".
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: No comments.
- New Sound Album: "West Technique" is a huge step-up in guitar technique, also Matt does lots of singing in addition to rapping.
- Nu Metal: A very strong influence as they use "quiet verse-loud chorus" structure in songs "Fatal Attraction", "Life and Death", "Hooded Race", "Unconscious" and "Bad Company".
- Rap Metal: See above.
- Rearrange the Song: "Ready For War" was re-released in 2018 with some open-string chugging added.
- Political Rap: As mentioned above, DVSR don't tend to overuse this trope like Hacktivist. Their only political song is "Unconscious".
- Self-Titled Album: Again no comments.
- Singer Name Drop: the line "DVSR will bomb first" from "Ready For War".
- Spiritual Successor: Arguably, they might be the one to Limp Bizkit or Biohazard.
- Step Up to the Microphone: Bassist Adrian performs the entire chorus of "Remission" by himself.
- Surprisingly Gentle Song: "Remission".
- Take That!: Not a song trope. Hacktivist's guitarist Timfy James being asked about DVSR in one of interviews called them "a meat and potatoes version of us". DVSR's guitarist Andrew Stevens later responded with a video proving that an intro sample of "Hate" was taken from Ableton's demo library.
- Vocal Tag Team: Matthew and Adrian, before the latter left the band.
- With Friends Like These...: "The Devil in 95's".
