OK /mu/, if you can provide me a group that makes music anywhere close to this, I'll believe you that Death Grips is overrated.
I did listen to it. It lacks the futuristic and off-putting dissonances and sublimation in FWW. It still sounds chained to Earth and to analog. Death Grips sound resoundingly digital.
Death Grips are heavily influenced by a lot of Alec Empire stuff, specifically his solo albums (Intelligence and Sacrifice) and more specifically, Curse of the Golden Vampire. At least, on Gov't Plates you can really hear the influence
>completely disregarding lyrical content, songwriting skills, and atmospheric detail
FWW is literally a desperate attempt to sound as sophisticated as 90% of dalek's work
Well I mean, they're two completely separate entities that sound nothing alike, share different ideals/visions etc so no, I don't think Death Grips and Dälek are all that similar.
or maybe they're just making music they like, like they've stated in numerous interviews... I highly, highly doubt they sat in a room together and said "hey let's try and make a song like Dälek!".
well you're definitely a fucking idiot if you completely disregard lyrical content when it's one of the most impressive elements of death grips.
songwriting involves the entire structure and progression of the song you imbecile
you asked for music that's "anywhere close," not music that sounds the exact fucking same. Go listen to fucking Food For Animals if you want some noise hop even more digital death grips
there is nothing like the mc ride
I never understood the comparisons to Dalek. I like Dalek they just don't really sound like Death Grips. It's like the second you're even remotely experimental or abrasive with hip hop everyone just lumps it all together.
that's not a reason as to why death grips is supposedly far superior to dalek. I actually prefer death grips to dalek, but to not recognize dalek as one of the most influential and forward thinking artists on par with death grips is simply ignorant. You're just arguing your personal taste, which is childish.
Listen to dälek's entire discog and you'll hear the similarities. They definitely molded a lot of the sound death grips were going for. Nobody here is arguing the death grips ripped them off, they obviously have their own very unique sonic preferences, but dalek is absolutely on par with them when it comes to songwriting, sonic diversity, lyrical content, and experimentation-with-a-purpose.
>on par with them
This thread is not talking about quality.
Quality is fucking stupid to discuss.
Dalek SOUNDS almost nothing like DG except for noise.
Again, it's comparing Bartok and Bach.
You didn't fucking say that. You just said anything that comes close which very clearly implies superiority you fucking IDIOT. If you wanted something that sounds sonically similar, say that. So just go listen food for animals. Fucking child.
>You just said anything that comes close which very clearly implies superiority you fucking IDIOT.
I guess I forgot that I'm dealing with /mu/, who thinks that you can determine quality differences.
thats my favorite dalek track, and one of my favorite hip hop tracks of all time but that sounds absolutely nothing like WIW. you seem like the kind of person who just sees "DG" and immediately associates bands like BLACKIE and Dalek with them despite them not at all sounding anything alike
that music video
>thnk mr skeltal
death grips IS 4chan seriously, i'm going to do research and explain how everything in their music is inspired by memes/4chan
Hey faggot, read the thread. OP asked for something that comes close, then he'll say DG are overrated. He didn't ask for something that sounds similar, he just changed his question to that later. That's why I initially posted a dalek track that was obviously superior.
Are you really caught up on that one word, Anon?
Oh, the "Dälek is comparable to Death Grips" meme.
It's like comparing a This Heat to The Fall.
Better? Do you understand my point now?
Can someone explain me the appeal of Death Grips?
Honestly I've listened to a couple albums all the way through and it's just an angry homeless man yelling with some noise in the background. Also that music video is fucking retarded; drunk high school kids could make better. Seriously, what's so great about this garbage?
There was an intstrumental music vid on youtube of a bearded black man who looked like a poor man's mc ride.
there were bandages, blood, smiling(?), nails came out early last year. I think fantano commented '0_o'
anyone know that video? had a long name.
