Stream Ho99o9 Mutant Freax EP (Stereogum Premiere)
Looking for some disturbing music to soundtrack your Halloween weekend? Look no further than Ho99o9 (pronounced “horror”), the duo behind a highly intimidating brand of aggro rap. Ho99o9 are releasing their three-track EP specially for Halloween, and today we share it with you. “Da Blue Nigga From Hell Boy,” a post-apocalyptic, formidable diatribe delivered with unbridled aggression and fervor, kicks things off. Nodding to Death Grips in its prevailing sense of doom, and Tyler, The Creator in its confrontational attitude, the track could soundtrack a traumatic nightmare or a zombie takeover. “Don’t want your money, just the sounds of hearing you bleed,” is growled over calculated explosions of bass interspersed with shrill screams. From there, “Hated In Amerika” is an all-out hardcore song, and “Dark Paradise” closes out the tracklist with a hellish ethereal slow jam. The EP artwork should give you a good idea of what it sounds like. Get into the Halloween spirit and listen below.
Mutant Freax is out today, and Ho99o9 are playing an all-night Halloween party in Los Angeles tonight. Here’s the poster:
