Check Out Powerflo, Featuring Members of Biohazard, ex-Fear Factory, Cypress Hill and Downset
I’m of two minds about Powerflo, the new band featuring Biohazard guitarist Billy Graziadei, former Fear Factory bassist Christian Olde Wolbers, Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog, Downset guitarist Roy Lozano and Worst drummer Fernando Schaefer.
My first instinct was to be like “oh my God it’s 2017 and these old guys are releasing a rap metal album, come on, no no NOOOOO”
But then I thought about it, and some things occurred to me:
- Ice T’s Body Count released a rap metal album this year and it’s fucking awesome
- All of these guys were doing rap, metal and/or rap metal waaaaaaaay before Korn and Limp Bizkit came along and ruined everything
- If anyone’s gonna do it, I’d rather it be some seasoned vets instead of a bunch of young brats
- This song is actually pretty fucking catchy, and holds up on a metal/technical level, too.
- I’m an elitist dickbag
So: check out “Victim of Circumstance” from their forthcoming album below, then tell me whether you think I’m an idiot or not for liking it in the comments section.
