DELUSIONS - The language barrier [2011]

Amidst most bands in their respective genre these days, melody and harmony seems to be a key element to the attention sustained by any desired audience or wealth of fans. Delusions, despite any premeditated first impression, carry this desired weight with each song they present - no matter how heavy, or how dark. Producer Drew Fulk exemplified this in their highly anticipated debut record for 2011, "The Language Barrier," to be released through Tragic Hero Records. This release packs 10 crushing songs, each supplied with their own unique groove, texture, and low-tuned striations similar to the likes of For The Fallen Dreams, Meshugghah, and Misery SIgnals.
There is a also a noticeable sense of comforting ambiance in each song, characterized to the writing styles of Oceana (prior years) and Of Machines. Vocalist Trevor Gildbride maintains a charisma that will allow fans to separate him from any other multitude of competitive vocalists, taking into additional consideration the raw, distinct tonality of his voice that surely leaves a "memorable kick" to back of one's head.
