The story of Death Grips is one of the most outlandish of any major band we can name at the moment. From allegedly breaking up while continuing to release new material, to sending equipment to their live shows but never turning up to play, Death Grips have always been completely unpredictable. And it is this quality that can best sum up their latest album 'Bottomless Pit'.
Unlike their previous releases, 'Bottomless Pit' is actually pretty concise in its running time. With 13 tracks clocking in at just over 38 minutes, the record instantly feels far more together than their previous works. This has allowed each track to explode in a flurry of furious rage before becoming inevitably becoming tiresome, because lets face it, even the most out of control noise can feel monotonous at times. But it seems they've finally got the balance right with 'Bottomless Pit', showing that they have more to show than their much talked about gimmicks.
It's crazy, bonkers but best of all, brilliant in its own way. Of course Death Grips are an acquired taste but even the most prudish of the musically minded will find something to like about this record. Memorable and diverse throughout, 'Bottomless Pit' is easily the band's best work yet.
