06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)
01:46 - Apothecary Oh wait, we're still talking about hip hop? Ok, listen to this guy then [link] And preferably check out the lyrics as well, VERY deep and well-constructed

Hailing from Samara Russia, Wine From Tears debuted their first album Through The Eyes of a Mad (a mad what? I have no clue…) back in 2009 via Bad Mood Man Music.
After the intro concluded, I knew immediately what I was in for, and I wasn't disappointed. I have to admit, I'm a huge sucker for this sound. Wine From Tears plays a melodic death/doom metal with a melancholic mood that never lets up (think early Katatonia, early Paradise Lost, Saturnus, Officium Triste, etc). The melodic riffs are the main event here, but they are interspersed with some heavier crunchy sounding riffs as well. Occasionally the tempo picks up and things start to sound more aggressive, although this never seems to draw away from that melancholic mood. I really like the keyboards too, because they don't overshadow the melodic guitar riffs. Instead they supplement them nicely. The bass and drums don't really stick out, and they aren't really anything special. The vocals are mostly well done growls with a few clean vocals thrown into the mix (there are even female vocals on "Feeding the Angel").
