EDITORS’ NOTES

On blacklist_, Dangerkids announce their return with the strong-armed chug and flying chorus of “Kill Everything." Their fusion of metalcore aggression with electronic and hip-hop flourishes makes for moody melees, masterfully walking the line between in-your-face force and well-crafted hooks. The hardcore growls of “Things Could be Different” give way to fist-pumping sing-along moments, while the glitchy, metallic guitar of “Glass on Water” drives a soaring vocal turn from Andy Bane.

Blacklist

I don't think I've ever heard such a wide variety of early-mid-2000s alt-metal acts emulated by one band. I think this band does have potential and the singles are admittedly somewhat catchy. However, their sound is just too derivative of their influences, and the group seems to compensate for a lack of interesting ideas with sheer loud mastering. Unfortunately, these guys are more From Ashes to New than Linkin Park.

Great Return!!!

I've been waiitng for these guys to make a return. And while this review is long overdue, the album itself was well worth the wait. I don't know what happened with Rise Records, but these guys have always been ahead of the game. I;m jsut happy they are still making music. They mix metalcore and rap rock really well. Instrumentally they have great riffs/beats/breakdowns. The vocalists sound just as good as ever, and the lyrics are the same themes roughly as the first album. Still have the sick screams and cleans, plus the MC is awesome for this genre of music. This does sound a lot like the early 2000s nu-metal bands, which a higher emphasis on the metalcore. It's just a catchy, fun album. All their albums are fun and catchy. Give it a listen, you won't be disppointed. My favorite tracks are: "Kill Everything", "Things Could Be Different", "Glass on Water", and "blacklist_" but there is no filler. Al the tracks gold.

A piTTbull

I love it

Kill Everything and Invincible Summer has to be my favorite songs on the album. All I need is Collapse and I got all your albums and this has to be my favorite album from them

Rating 10/10 it's that good

About Dangerkids

With a sound that blends the worlds of rap, electronic dance music, post-hardcore, and metalcore, Dangerkids feel like a revised version of Linkin Park. Forming Dangerkids in Dayton, Ohio in 2012, members Andy Bane, Tyler Smyth, Jake Bryant, Jake Bonham, and Katie Cole combined their varied influences to create a dark and moody sound, bringing disparate worlds together in a way that retained the best bits of all the genres involved while still feeling cohesive. Their debut album, Collapse, was released on Rise Records in 2013. Blacklist_, the group's much anticipated sophomore outing, dropped in 2016. ~ Gregory Heaney
