MUSIC Spotlight: A Decade Apart

Music can be somewhat difficult to categorize. How would you describe A Decade Apart’s style?  hardcore/metalcore? I would describe our style as (EHC) or Electronic Hardcore/Electronic Post-Hardcore It is a high energy music with catchy transitions and memorable choruses Our goal is to have people be able to participate in our show easily the first time seeing us.  In the grand scheme of things, the band is still quite young.  Have you been surprised by the level of success you’ve achieved so far?
