You're too overwhelmed by the energy and passion of the delivery to care where exactly they have appropriated riffs and sounds from. Vein's feverish spirit on record is, without question, their unique selling point.
Considering the band's output so far, You Won't Get What You Want is the perfect return for Daughters. While aspects of the band's creative vision have been altered and their sound has further evolved, the core elements remain intact.

It is more within their style to illicit fear anyway.
As impressive and imposing The Deal and What One Becomes are, Love in Shadow stands in a league of its own. The change of perspective, the stylistic deviations and the smooth transitions between different modes make Love in Shadow appear as a pivotal record for the band.
The songs do not cohere with the same kind of symmetry as those on Clearing the Path to Ascend did ... but the band's three musicians have history and an evident chemistry that clearly affords them creative flexibility without sacrificing consistency.
