The first single they released Omen follows that up nicely and feels like something completely out of place especially in it's opening which features odd electronic work and a distorted piano, it breaks into a more familiar emotionally driven hardcore section before changing again bringing the piano to the forefront, then once again switching it back and combining everything into an emotionally devastating ending. The elements all feel familiar but the layering and the arrangement while inspired by what's been done, are completely surprising and fresh.
Rounding out the album the last two songs Vagabond and Masquerade are more traditional fare. Masquerade does feature a brief Deftones' like moment and it's nice touch but nothing as prominent as the first two tracks. Vagabond is probably my favorite track off the EP simply for just how off the wall it really is. It brings back fond memories of The Chariot and Every Time I Die with it's ripping guitars and start/stop drumming.
Delinquent Youth have done something with this EP. It's under the surface, it's not a complete change for the genre, but it lurks there waiting to attack. It can be felt in various moments throughout the EP. This could be a tipping point for the genre, a few years from now we may be looking back at this EP and band and saying "Yeah this is where it really started to change". We'll have to wait and see what they deliver to us with a full lengths but I'll be on the edge of my seat until then.
