The Band

  • Broken Base: Their third album, Scurrilous, wasn't received too well at release. Reasons ranged from the change in musical direction to the change in lyrical content.
  • Epic Riff: Many, but special mention goes to "Divinity Within".
  • Harsher in Hindsight: "Sex Tapes" was written about the selfishness and sociopathic nature of online voyeurism and how fast and far one person's nudes or (often ostensibly private) amateur porn video can spread. The song was written roughly around 2009 or 2010, back when things like revenge porn, hacked webcams, and stolen nudes and videos were starting to become a problem, but well before events like The Fappening would demonstrate just how serious a problem it had become.

  • Signature Song: "Bloodmeat", the opener from Fortress.

The Fan Fiction

  • Breather Level: If this story was a game, Game Over wouldn't have lasted three seconds.
  • One-Scene Wonder: All of the assassins that haven't been given a central role have been killed as soon as they were introduced. They didn't survive the next chapter, which is to be expected but the author makes such good one hit wonder assassins that we're stuck wondering 'what if...' Game Over is a crowd favorite. People have been asking about a way to bring him back.

How well does it match the trope?
