They fucking did it again. They dropped another Fat Man without warning anyone!

So...it looks like this is what we get from Death Grips in 2019. Needless to say, the entire 30-minute timeslot they occupied on NTS Radio was a chaotic musical shitshow! Power electronics at its finest!

Death Grips showcases their most glitchy, chaotic and completely random release, I guess? I don't know, rating this musical shitpost is like trying to get a goldfish to climb a tree. There's practically no ... read more

WAIT
DEATH GRIPS RELEASED SOMETHING
WHAT
WHERE WAS THE WARNING

So this was something that I had no idea that came out until I saw other AOTY members talk about it, and already I got insanely hyped for what was to come, and what did we get?

WOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAHHH!!! OKAAAY!!!

I swear, this is the most aggressive shit they've ever done! It fills your eardrums with pure, adrenaline-pumping sound of the hectic, industrial synths, MC Ride's voice being glitched to the fucking extreme and the wildest and non-stop drumming I've ever heard Zach Hill play! If this is the sound that's going to be presented on their next record, I'M PUMPED!!!
