On the heels of their debut album, 2018’s Perpetually Sad Motion Machine, Milwaukee hip hop outfit Guerrilla Ghost have wasted no time in delivering a follow up. Exhibiting growth on multiple levels, the group presents the listener with “Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man”, a first look at the upcoming album, We Get What We Deserve.
Since their inception, the duo have drawn from numerous sources to create a style of hip hop that blends the edginess of metal with the progressive futurism of EDM. “Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man” finds Guerrilla Ghost expanding their sonic palette once again, with producer Tron Jovi crafting a rich and texturally dense backdrop, sounding like Pi’erre Bourne were producing for Godflesh or Trent Reznor producing for Playboi Carti. This unique cocktail of sounds allows room for growth on the vocal side, and Bad Graphics Ghost delivers a vocal performance that illustrates his development as an emcee, showcasing one of the group’s most memorable hooks yet. Bad Graphics Ghost plays with metre and form in a way that only comes from continually developing one’s craft, lyrically touching on everything from his upbringing to his current struggles, both personally and otherwise. All of the ingredients are melded together to create an ocean bed of sound and texture with an incredible amount of depth, with elements bouncing around the stereo image throughout the track.
“Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man” is the first single from the band’s sophomore effort, We Get What We Deserve. The single is slated for release on all major streaming platforms on 6/19/20, while the album will see a digital and limited CD release on 7/31.
