It’s hard not to point out one particular sub genre that is the most ground breaking wave in metal we have seen in a long time. That genre being Trap Metal with its edgy guteral tones and soundscaps. Bledning the rap + metal crossover genre so well that it makes attempts from the past seem mediocre.
But with this new Album titled Descend upon Infinity by HELLI$H, we explore the mix of genres even further. Taking us on a dark trip of black metal and Trap Music deconstructed it into a chopped up, mutated, abomination. HELLI$H wastes no time screaming over melodic hellscapes equipped with cypertrap processed 808 bass cannons on BOTH hands. Every track on this album is HARD. Every song fits the overall theme of the album. And all together from a label stand point, it just feels like a solid record.
Full of cinematic vibes and heavy bass lines, this is a groundbreaking album from HELLI$H and offers proof that he is leveling up quickly. The vocals are full of frustration and anger and the tracks switch tempo to showcase different styles and capabilities the artist has on his belt. I really enjoyed this release and I was able to listen to it all the way through from the intro to the outro. I give it a rating of 8 out of 10 only because I want to hear more diversity in the artist’s cadence and vocal flow. I want to help push him forward through constructive criticism but he clearly already knows exactly where he’s going and he has a very unique sound that makes him easy to identify when I hear his tracks pop up on our Trap Metal Alliance playlist.
