KANYE WEST – REAL FRIENDS
The second single from Kanye West in two weeks, and a release date for Swish set to 11th February, ‘Real Friends’ follows in the production-led footsteps of ‘Facts’, but with an ethereal twist, West’s pacing and flow taking a light and delicate turn.
While keeping with the maximalist style of Yeezus and merging with 808s & Heartbreak‘s numbing textures,West has now achieved a balance that is incredibly enticing, especially with the knowledge that Swish is just round the corner. Christmas came late.
DROWNING POOL – HELL TO PAY
Drowning Pool are back with yet another old school-metal track. ‘Hell to Pay’ takes you right back to the ’90s with under-tuned bass lines, clunky guitar riffs and cheesy lyrics.
It opens up with a cool intro that’s loaded with deep bass before going into the first verse. To put it bluntly, there’s nothing original about this, it’s all been done before, but if you’re looking for just a simple, chill rock track then ‘Hell to Pay’ is the track for you.
Furthermore, if you’re into bands like Five Finger Death Punch then check out Drowning Pool if you haven’t already.
