This amazing EP starts out with "No Shelter", their hit single! That's really I have to say about it, but it's definitely the song that got me into them! They have a Mouth of the South/Rival Choir sound to them.
The next song is "Brother's Keeper". And it is awesome. It has its metal moments, but it's pretty hardcore. They use Chaotic Hardcore as the way to describe themselves, but the simpler term is Mathcore. The coolest thing about this song, is the breakdown. It sounds like one of Gideon's breakdowns off of Calloused or Fit for a King's Slave to Nothing!
"Water It Down" is a another amazing song. It, along with "No Shelter" was one of the first songs I heard, and I loved it!
"Den of Thieves" starts out with faded drums and then comes Vocalist Josh Adams amazing vocals! "So Beat 'Em Up! Beat 'Em Up!" Just awesome! I can't say it's my favorite song one the EP because they all are! Minus the last song. The song seems to have another vocalist on there, but I'm unsure who it is cause there was no credit given.
"The Migration" has a pretty good, but it's more a mellow Christian Metalcore song. Don't get me wrong I love those songs just as much as the next person, but it doesn't really suit WWDIS. Still the song is rad with a mixture of Cleans and Uncleans. Just amazing!
"Grey Grace" is basically a ballad. It's slow with clean vocals. It's not a bad song just I don't really enjoy clean vocals almost all the way through a song. Then Adams comes back in with the Unclean Vocals, for about 30 seconds, and then finishes the EP.
