“Generations,” the first EP by metalcore act from Dallas, THIRD & DELAWARE, has invoked multitudes of emotion through my ears, to my heart, and back again. Despite the overproduction and the always-hated clean vocals, this record turns out to be more passionate and sincere than I could have imagined.
Closely contained by singles “Innocent by Association” and “Ardor”, “Generations” packs a number of tasty tunes. From the start of “Heart of Fire,” the screams are more hardcore, the guitar meatier, the wall of sound thicker. This continues throughout the EP.
People will always be picky with their clean vocals and I can understand that, but sit down and not only hear, but feel the music running through you. In addition to the great message this album holds, it is really heartfelt, and I can never get enough heartfelt music. These guys have plenty of talent, and even with the problems of overproduction, this release will really speak to a lot of people, because it’s a trip that may heal your heart.
“Generations” is available now via Bandcamp.
