No cheese, no anthems, just relentless, hard bass music; this is what you can expect from Excision’s new Destroid album The Invasion. This side project is a live band that involves his friends Downlink and KJ Sawka, and after hearing this beastly LP, we can’t wait to see them perform live!
The Invasion starts off with a few brilliant tracks co-produced with Spaces Laces, the first of which is its inaugural single Raise Your Fist. Wasteland is a slamming dubstep banger that continues to tell the story of the world the album takes place in with haunting voiceovers. Crusaders runs with an upbeat four-on-the-floor tempo and is the most melodic of these first three.
The album continues with Flip The Switch, a hip hop-style jam that features MC Messinian, and Activation, another storm of 4/4 kicks. Next is Excision’s unstoppable drum & bass collab with Bassnectar, Put It Down. We heard Bassnectar drop this one as his final tune at Ultra Music Festival weekend 2. My favorite track has to be Bounce, a mosh pit instigator that is certainly Excision’s heaviest track since Headbanga last year.
The final tracks off The Invasion hit just as hard the rest. His last single with Ajapai, Blast Off, has a huge jump in its bassline, while the final track Funk Hole drives at a fierce moombahcore pace. This album is worthy of subwoofers everywhere, so download it today on iTunes or Beatport.
Don’t miss your chance to see Destroid perform live on their current tour. They’ll be stopping by the Warfield in San Francisco, Camp Bisco in Albany, Orion Festival in Detroit, and Moonrise Festival in Baltimore, the latter of which we are giving away tickets for here.
