DEATH GRIPS - Exmilitary 
Experimental hardcore hip-hop act Death Grips 2011 debut, Exmilitary is admittedly a difficult listen.
Channeling the old-school sounds of Black Flag and Suicidal Tendencies mixed with industrial like hip-hop beats that are constantly changing tempo and fractured samples that would be out of place in any other hip hop project, Death Grips isn't for everybody. The hardcore punk aggression is captured perfectly with the brutish like vocals and grungy production that would probably make a Slayer fan think twice about entering a Death Grips moshpit.
It's a little too different for it's own good. Excellent production and composition are overshadowed by the intense anger that seems a bit much at times.
