Ho99o9 - HORRORs of 1999

Their preoccupation with the darkest-hued hip-hop combined with some filthy, filthy grindcore proves that the Devil really does have all the best tunes

Escaping from a grave somewhere from within the bowels of darkest Hollyweird, death kult sensations Ho99o9 are alt. music's hottest kids on the block. Their preoccupation with the darkest-hued hip-hop combined with some filthy, filthy grindcore proves that the Devil really does have all the best tunes. If you insist on reducing Ho99o9 by their artistic musical genealogy then arguably they're Gravediggaz mauled by Extreme Noise Terror and remixed by G.G.F.H., which is as terrifying a prospect as it sounds.

The savage No Regrets kicks off the chaos; a short, sharp shock to the system that aims for the gut and doesn't stick around afterwards. Days Of Vengeance is a sinister initiation into their death kult that is stunningly hypnotic in it's perversely alluring devilment of dirge. A brief interlude warns of the dangers of poison ass before Prisoners Of War continues Ho99o9's guided tour of the depths of depravity, a relentless downward spiral into the abyss. The caustic Savage Heads, an angel dust-fuelled thrash that makes the Exploited sound like One Direction, brings the EP to an end, and sees The OGM and Eaddy trading lyrical blows in a fight to the death.

And that is literally it; dark and delirious, bleak and beautiful, a simple introduction to why exactly Ho99o9 are the most exciting, most chaotic, and most dangerous band in music right now. In summary: Music in the key of terror.
