Recently on tour with Underoath. Singles "Tangled Hands" and "Father's Son".
Upon my first listen, what stands out is a lead up to wanting more. "Fed" had a nice build up that ends up drawing you in, preparing you for what's to come. The transition into "Father's Son" is smooth. Chris Costenza has lots of range and voice.
Between the lyrics, voice and instruments you can feel the struggle that many feel that have had religious upbringings and the transition out of that lifestyle. The path to finding yourself after doing what you've been told. These thoughts ring throughout this album. There is a lot of haunting melodies on this, the album experiments back and forth, giving it's own unique perspective on the genre. The production is very clean.
"Tangled Hands" is a stand out track. "When will I find direction You've left me empty and afraid Hollowed out, left a shell I can't fill your empty space"
Overall I give this album a 7/10. I would recommend if you enjoy this genre of music. I felt it got better with each listen and would keep it in rotation.
