is there any sort of connection between the two bands, because they sound absolutely nothing alike. I'm a fan of both, and can't see where that comparison is drawn from.
They shared a drummer who has now quit Chemist, and I guess they used to be friends or something. I saw them both for the first time at the same place and was impressed by Chemist and not EAPZ, which is how I connect them. It was a couple years ago though in their defense.
