This put a rather big smile on my face as it’s pretty damn ridiculous. YouTube user FrankNintendo64 took a ton of dubstep artist Skrillex‘s songs (up until early 2012) and placed them over each other (with no pitch shifting correction) to create the ultimate Skrillex song. At points, it’s a complete garbled mess. At other points, it’s rather hilarious how well everything works together. Check it out below. READ MORE
Perhaps one of the most difficult parts of listening to Skrillex, or any dubstep artist for that matter, is that it’s really hard to sing along with the song because the lyrics are so deep, meaningful, and freakin’ unintelligible!!! A prime example of this is “First Of The Year (Equinox)”. The video (below) shows a man follow a small girl into a dilapidated basement with the intention of drugging her and, theoretically, having his way with her (what a perv). However, the girl, using her mystical, magical, My Little Pony powers, proceeds to levitate and pummel the unholy crap out of Mr. “I grow older, they stay the same age, yes they do, yes they do”.
But are those images reflected in the lyrics? Is there something incredible and poignant that I’m missing because I simply cannot understand what is being said? Well, no longer do I have to worry! Lyrics for the song have been provided and WOW! They open my eyes up to the genius that is the poet known as Skrillex! Check ‘em out below and share your thoughts on the majestic glory! READ MORE
With a new album coming out and a tour about to kick off, Five Finger Death Punch are insanely busy right now. So, to help them out, I’m posting this article with all sorts of FFDP news so you don’t have to scramble all over the Internet trying to find it all. First of all, below is a shout-out video from Jeremy and Zoltan for YOU, the Bloody-Disgusting readers!
A couple of new music videos have hit the web today that I wanted to share with you. The first is Born To Lose from The Devil Wears Prada. Visually, it’s actually really cool. I dug the tone and atmosphere and the song worked quite well with the imagery.
Okay, I need some help here people: I just saw this awesome video of a band covering Skrillex‘s Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites. Trouble is, I have absolutely no idea what the bass and the guitar are doing at certain points in the song. It’s not what notes they are playing or the chords, it’s how the hell are they making those sounds??? Just check out the bass around :56 seconds as well as the guitar around 1:25. I’m really curious to know the technology behind those sounds. Hell, I’m kinda tempted, once I know what it is, to throw it into one of my project guitars just to have some fun.
I don’t know about you guys, but I definitely see the Metroid series having a lot of horror influences. The bosses are pretty creepy looking, you never know what’s coming up, and the music can be quite haunting. Actually, speaking of the music, that’s why we’re here! Currently out for free download is a two disc set of music inspired by and in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Metroid series called Harmony of a Hunter. The compilation features 36 tracks put together by 24 different musicians. The different styles range from electronica and ambient to dubstep to metal. All in all, it sounds awesome and I highly recommend it for fans of the series or just the everyday casual listener.
We ended last week with an OMFG Of The Day that saw a creeper pedophile get his comeuppance at the hands of a little girl, all to the tune of Skrillex‘s First Of The Year. Well, today brings another dubstep OMFG article. This time, a trio of armed gunmen take on your every day generic bad guys using the power of dubstep as their ammo. Sound ridiculous? Well, it should because it is. Watch the video after the jump and enjoy the face melter at the end! READ MORE
Skrillex, the industrial dubstep sensation, has announced the largest tour of his career yet, the Mothership tour. Spanning three months and covering a vast majority of North America, he will be hitting almost every conceivable location…except for f*cking Detroit!!! Seriously, what kinda B.S. is that? His music sounds like Transformers banging it out and I want to hear that in person! Actually, the thought of Optimus Prime bending over Starscream is putting a bad taste in my mouth…
One of the biggest hurdles for aspiring DJ’s and remix artists is the staggering time and cost of securing permission to use copyrighted material. However, Legitmix, a new software, aims to remove that hurdle entirely and without the record label having any say.
