Throughout Fourplus999’s bright and seductive new single, creative production takes a refreshing lead.
Burn The World mixes together unconstrained modern production and a strong devotion to metal and hip hop from the start, followed by a number of stylistic shifts and vocal sound-play that continues to highlight yet another side to the artist’s vast creative domain.
Fourplus999 is a London-based metal-hip-hop artist who is quickly gaining a following for his unique sound. Drawing inspiration from heavy metal and trap music, Fourplus999 creates a sound that is both aggressive and catchy. His music has been compared to that of Korn, Tool, Iron Maiden, and Megadeth, among others. With a growing fan base and a unique sound, Fourplus999 is an artist to keep an eye on in the coming years.
Fourplus999 succeeds as a vocalist and keeps that integrity of topic throughout, displaying many shifts in performance style, from spoken word to melody to the sheer scream of metal, with severely altered hip hop moments in between. That identity persists, no matter where his inventiveness takes him; the throbbing heart of the enterprise, a rare and ever-impressive trait that is impossible to overlook.
The music is incredibly interesting in terms of production here – the opening moments, the hypnotic rise and fall of that rhythmic pattern, the insight and static, followed by intense bass and metal rhythms – everything is raw, unpredictable, intriguing, aptly unsettling, and cunningly in tune with the accompanying subject matter.
