rap metal

Artist: 
HollyWood Undead
Label: 
A&M Records

This is an album, it does album things, unfortunately it is not clean meaning it cannot be played on the radio. it is very fast paced with the obligatory higher pitched voice screaming words, something one can expect from most everything these days. Vaguely Fall out boy esque and truly, annoyingly UNCLEAN, has some old school emminem--> Slim shady vibes in the rap aspect, One thing that was completely unexpected was the appearance of a violin in the second track.

Synth work done extensively, if you want to listen to this ask someone to clean it.

With an opening track similar to the Purge, Body Count comes out of the gates with a crazy heavy album. This album is politically and racially aware of the issues facing the United States today. Taking away all political ideas in this album, its fucking sick. Ice-T and his band Body Count cover Ranging Blood by Slayer and it's just pure gold.

Body Count is a metal group founded by rap phenomenon Ice-T and they aren’t necessarily known for being the heaviest, most skilled or most polished metal group. This track “No Lives Matter” though… this is something that changes all those preconceived ideas about Body Count. First off: this is a really well done metal track, plain and simple. But the message and the execution of it gives you chills. Ice-T raps over the slam metal track and it fits perfectly. This is a mosh pit song. This is a song that will change and influence a generation.

King 810 has released their second album La Petite Mort or a Conversation with God and it's nothing short of phenomenal. A lot of people may not like this album because honestly it’s a work of art. This isn’t just an album, it flows together song to song.
