Galen, hip-hop: munnblock – StackBitchz I Go Remix

Mark, metal: Teeth – To Dream is to Suffer

New Drill from the munnblock team out of Newark, NJ. Newark’s club scene is popping off, but a lot of exciting drill coming out of NJ right now too.
Enough dissonance to fell a herd of mammoths. Slow, painful, and deliberating, with absolutely putrid vocals. For fans of: Ulcerate, Artificial Brain, Primitive Man

One of the best live music videos ever.
