Together, UK outfit Gentlemens Club and SoCal’s own Aweminus crank out three minutes of pure, unshakeable carnage on “Death Club”. The proceedings open up with lysergic-laced synths that faintly whirl in the background until the blood-curdling “dead man walking” vocal sample hits, which is the precise moment when you realize the boys have you locked dead in their sights. The intensity quickly reaches critical mass, as a rapid succession of claps, acid licks and haunting vocalizations give way to one of the deadliest drops we’ve heard all year long. Once the sound of the gun cocks, there’s zero time to run for cover before the real force and ferocious sound design twist and turn through solid switch-ups in their ingenious phrasing. A brief breather is offered up in the thrill-inducing breakdown, but that moment is fleeting, and the pairing of these two wub-slingers enter the final showdown that hammers the proverbial nail in the coffin.
