Out just in time for Halloween, here is Protohype & Kezwik‘s creepy VILE (Rottun Recordings)EP. The title track opens with the most evil, ostinato melody on the most visceral of instruments, the cello. Deep bass replaces the cello in drops and samples from the “Night of the Living Dead” parse sections of this demented passacaglia. “Triple Grip” is straight up, graveyard-dark. Ethereal sounds of the afterlife strike fear into your soul until the drum-roll and drill bit drops eventually unhinge your brain. If it were even possible, “Vile (Rekoil remix)” raises the bar of evil from the original. Like the previous track, the use of a full drum kit really brings this track to life (or death?).
