Hello, My Name Is... is a series dedicated to highlighting the new wave of musicians whose starting to build buzz on social media. We scoured SoundCloud to find up and coming artist who is changing the music game.
Behind a veil of distortion, guitars crashing against 808 drums, SCARLXRD calls what he does “trap metal,” but to me it just sounds like the future of heavy music. His last record, the galvanizing LXRDSZN transformed the energy of a radical protest into pure fire. While his latest, DXXM turns down the protest clips, it retains every decibel of fury. DXXM is one of the most uncompromising heavy records ever made by an artist who sounds like no-one else on Earth.
