Here is your broken list of tropes, the one left of Heaven:

  • Metalcore: Of the melodic variety. Rest Inside the Flames marked the first time they committed to this style, with subtle traces of it having already existed on the previous album.
  • Nu Metal: What their pre-Rest Inside the Flames material was in essence, particularly Bitterness the Star.
  • Perishing Alt-Rock Voice: Brock Lindow's cleans have a very, uh... distinctive quality to them, so to speak.
  • Advertisement:
  • Post-Hardcore: A big component of their musical stylings. Unlike the nu-metal edge that permeated both their late 90's and early 2000's works, this part of the band's sound is still present.
  • Shout-Out: They took their moniker from the 1977 movie The 36 Crazy Fists, which Jackie Chan was the stunt coordinator and action director on, not to mention he made a cameo in it.
  • Soprano and Gravel: Brock is usually a one-man example.
