Death Grips - Exmilitary (2011)

I would never normally go near a rap album but this is so bonkers and raw that any one who likes a bit of a racket should check it out. Drums by Zach Hill pound out the speakers and with samples from Bowie, Link Wray, Arthur Brown, Beastie Boys, Charles Manson and most magnificently, riffs created from "Rise Above" by Black Flag and "Interstellar Overdrive" by Floyd, this has a savage feel to it. I cannot really judge it against anything else as my knowledge of heavy rap is non existent, so I have provided a video so you can hear for yourselves.

Those groovy fuckers at Thirdworlds have provided a free download + a site with their other stuff Here.

Holy Hell. Should not have slept on this one. I've listened to this 3 or 4 times today. Killer stuff, no question!
