Ho99o9’s ‘War Is Hell’ In The United States Of Horror
Remember their name, even though it looks unpronounceable, Ho99o9 (just pronounce horror) are going to take over the world, the US, or at least a club near you… they are currently on tour and the horrorcore duo is probably gonna burn your house, the white house, as there’s a mighty wind of destruction and annihilation that runs all over their last album ‘United States of Horror’.
They have released a new video for their opening song ‘War is Hell’, a long agonizing and aggressive rap delivery over an industrial teeth-grinding noise, ‘United States of Horror’… isn’t it what we are living right now?
In full riot mode, they have put the horror/punk/metal in the middle of their harsh rap, they have put a K in the middle of Amerika, Kafka’s way, except that, this time, there are three of them. Their songs have the explosive violence of hardcore punk, and their latest video takes on the brutality that people of color face every day in the United States of Horror… Watch it below, it is a call to arms against racism, brutality, capitalism, the lies of the media, and the multiple wars all these things trigger.
Bad Brains and Death Grips’ names have been dropped to describe their combustible-auto-destructive sound, and they may be the answer to get through all this current nightmare we call politics in the US. You have been warned, the imagery is not there to reconcile our divided country, they are rather in the extermination game, but they are the mutants surviving the apocalypse, because hope is long gone.
Catch them at a club near you, I know I will!
