I'm starting to get into these guys, I tried getting into them in the past, but it took listening to Exmilitary to really get what I am listening to. I actually fell in love with the first track of that mixtape immediately, it is really good. It is the sort of thing I would put on if I wanted to listen to some drone.

These guys are like watching a cat throw up and then proceed to eat its own vomit again. Take from that what you will.

I've been on a Death Grips binge for about a month or so now, but I can't get into No Love/Deep Web aside from Hunger Games and Come Up and Get Me. It's like Ex-Military but without the interesting samples. Pleh.

I've been listening since around the time Ex-Military came out and I don't really like that album either apart Come Up. I thought I was the only one! It's like their work is becoming less aggressive and angry sounding over time which may or may not be a good thing depending on who you ask.

Oddly enough, The Money Store gets praised a lot and it's by far my least favorite Death Grips album. The second half feels kind of weak to me and I think it's watered down compared to how aggressive and manic Exmilitary and NLDW are. Exmilitary is still my favorite release from them; it's abrasive but fun to listen to, and my go-to album to listen to when I'm feeling groggy in the morning.

Yeah I get what you mean. Also there's no MC Ride being amazing and quoteable, aside from "I GOT THE NASTY IN MY TAXI! YOU NEED A LIFT? YOU CAN SIT BETWEEN THE BACK SEAT AND MY DICK!"

I've also tried to get a mate into Death Grips, which hasn't gone amazingly well. I knew he'd like I've Seen Footage and Hacker, but he listened to Guillotine instead...

I think the line I quote the most from Exmilitary is "I LIGHT MY TORCH WITH IT AND GET ALL hosed UUUUUUUP" because it just sounds hilarious (and then there's a Beastie Boys sample)

I mean, Jesus, kid, at least date a motherfucker with abortion money and house to have sex at where your mother and I don't have to hear it. Also, if he treats her poorly, boom, that asshole's gonna catch a statch charge.

Please, John K. Date my daughter... Save her from dating smelly dropouts who wanna-be Soundcloud rappers.


"GO GO GOIN BACK TO TANGIER WITH SOME JORDANS AND A SPEAR," always makes me smile.

I think of MC Ride walking through Naked Lunch, leading the Liberian Tupac Army through the interzone, gangsta as gently caress.

I just love how angry Death Grips is.

When I first listened to Exmilitary and heard that Charles Manson quote on Beware then heard:

"I close my eyes and seize it
I clench my fists and beat it
I light my torch and burn it
I am the beast I worship...:

I knew this was something I would really enjoy.

This is also pretty great. These two nice people like using karaoke to make music covers.

I hadn't heard of Death Grips til a few weeks ago when I was on a bog standard youtube crawl, I just happened to be in the Black Metal / Crust Punk / Grindcore end of youtube, and was amazed that some "rap" was coming up in the related videos. long story short I listened to The Money Store (still got Get Got in my head) and decided this is more to rap what death metal is to regular metal. It's, dark, it's heavy, and it doesn't give a gently caress. Speaking as a closed-minded metalhead, if all rap was like this, and I wasn't so ignorant about what the rest of the genre sounds like, I would be totally into this all this poo poo, not just Death Grips. There anything similar to this I can get a reccomendation for?

Best comparison would be something like Dalek but nothing really sounds like Death Grips honestly. Techno Animal is another point of interest, and is actually Justin Broaderick from Godflesh and Jesu.

Also, I.N.R.I - checked out gucci mane via youtube, I mean, it isn't bad but it's not quite got the same punky/metal "attitude" that make Death Grips different enough to have warranted checking out... although this tune "Thirsty" aint too shabby.

I get a sort of Hacker type Death Grips vibe from Tempa T if only for the fact that it sounds violent and lends itself to being quoted all the time. Also some people can't understand what the gently caress he's saying, somewhat like MC Ride.

I decided to listen to Death Grips when the Money Store came out and all of the descriptions were just "really aggressive rapping over harsh beats and," which is right up my alley. I also like Zach Hill's drumming in Hella.

If I were to explain them to my past self, I would say it's more like Special Ed from Crank Yankers is shouting at you while some over some obnoxious blasts of noise, which should really be a negative. But I love it and I'm pumped to see them next Sunday. I still need to listen to Ex-Military.

Does anyone know if Zach Hill is actually touring with them? I read something about him staying back to work on their film soundtrack but it was worded strangely.

EDIT: I have now listened to Exmilitary. It was not as good as the Money Store or No Love Deep Web, but it's decent.

I've just gotten into Death Grips recently. A couple of my friends have been into 'em for a while and told me I should check them out a while back, but I never did until now, and I'm not really sure why. But yeah, this is like the best possible music to annoy your neighbors with. It's not something I can listen to all the time, but when I'm in the mood for it, man, it's real loving good. I have yet to drive to this with the windows down, but I have a feeling that would be a hilariously entertaining experience.

Though most of the time, I can't even tell Zach Hill is in this crew. Does he go crazy on the kit live? When he's actually touring with them, that is. The drums rule in Death Grips, but they very rarely sound like Zach Hill drums.

This band is really not that "noisy" or "abrasive" and I don't think playing it in your car would get any reactions from passerby that are much different from what you'd get playing any other loud music.

Maybe not for you, but Death Grips is literally the only artist I listen to that has what amounts to "schizophrenic screaming" as vocals, so I would categorize them as "noisy" and "abrasive" when combined with the music (at least on The Money Store). And I assume this is the case for more than just me.

The music just sounds like beats with synth sounds that basically sound like electric guitars over it and a guy yelling. I like Death Grips but honestly I don't think Rageaholic Monkey's signature driving with the windows down is going to cause a riot in his neighborhood unless he lives in some place like in The Village where people never heard of rock music before.

This song has more manic drums that sound like Zach Hill a little more:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFmZ6WDkuj0

But a lot of what makes this good and not "Zach Hill in a rap band" is that he lays back and does stuff that's appropriate for the style of music rather than just doing what he did in Hella.
