New Music Review- Dangerkids are not backing down on “Blacklist_” Out Now !

promoimage4Dangerkids have become one of the most converging and dangerous up-and-coming bands in rock music,since their formation in 2012.The band has pumped fresh blood into the scene with its unique blend of rock, post-hardcore, and rap combined with their explosive stage performances. They released their debut album, Collapse, in 2013 which received rave reviews from critics and support from fans around the world. Now, four years later the band will embark on their next chapter with Blacklist_, a record that doesn’t disappoint.

Blacklist_‘ will put Dangerkids on the music map.  Timing is everything, and the time is right now for them. The song writing has really progressed from the last album. It seems like they just let it flow out and didn’t try to edit themselves but just made music they love.

kill everthing’-The first track sets the tone for the rest of the album, the song flows alla Linkin Park, then back to the rolling chants that are infectious. They even bring in some washed out key boards that make this song the stand out of the album.

‘Blacklist_’-throws down some major head bangin’ riffs that will snap your neck like a little twig. You will find your self really getting into this one as it embodies the direction the band is going,  and I think people are going to say ” Fuck yeah, this one kicks ass”

‘Things could be different’ –  you can tell they didn’t hold back on this song. It is a battle against those who seek to slow you down or oppose you and a big “F-You .. How do you like me now”to those who doubted them.

The album closes on the stark acoustic dreamscape of “Invincible Summer.” Referencing an Albert Camus quote, Tyler immortalizes his love for his wife.

‘Blacklist_’ is about the constant battle against those who  oppose you. The band’s journey throughout the years has had a lot of loud, outspoken opinions on what we should be doing; and from the sounds of this album,the guys are not going to sit still and be told what to do.

With the band moving to California, it seems like they have been taking a lot of risks with their music and writing. It seems to have paid off big time in ‘Blacklist_’

Like I said before, this is the time and the place for Dangerkids, and ‘Blacklist_” is going to take them to the next level in the music industry.  The band has grow by leaps and bounds with this album, and they should be very proud of their growth and their music.
