Death Grips, the angry and angsty metal/noise-rap group from Sacramento is back with another angry and angsty project for us all to scream our lungs out too. For how anti-industry they may appear to be on the surface, they’ve basically become tried and true industry stalwarts in their own way. Like much of their music, much of Year of the Snitch is barely legible, with most lyrics of any note being drowned out by the constant noise rushing in all around. It’s volatile, angry, aggressive, and unrelentingly experimental – basically everything we’ve come to expect from a Death Grips project. It’s almost impossible to critically critique their music due to the highly ambiguous nature of it all, but it’s one of those things either you like or you don’t. Definitely not an everyday listen for me but when it is a listen, it’s an explosive, fun ride.
First to kneel cursed to feel
Trust me trust us we know you will
Tide come crashing in like steel
Makes your passions taste so stale
– “Linda’s in Custody”
