At the Nu-Metal Agenda, we're suckers for the 90s to early 2000s; not just from the style of music, but anything that helped contribute to the alternative music culture of the time period. This especially includes the hard-hitting music and aesthetics that came with rave culture.
GHÖSH is a self-described “nü jungle, digital hardcore, US grime band from Philadelphia” that delivers this sound and aesthetic in spades on their newest EP PRISMASSIVE, released today on May 26th.
Their latest EP feels as if the members hosted a wild, underground rave in The Matrix. Vocalist Symphony Spell, with punk rock ferocity, spits over the thumping sub-bass and synth lines of “Funky Rave Hits,” the Drum n Bass/Phonk fusion of “Ya Tu Sabes,” and the driving guitars on “Devil Lady.” When artists like GHÖSH emulate the sounds of underground music from the late 90s/early 2000s, it’s like hitting the refresh button on the booming styles and sounds of the time and then seeing just how creative they can get with them.
GHÖSH's new EP PRISMASSIVE is now available on Bandcamp, where you can also purchase a physical copy on cassette. Along with the EP, the physical release includes past songs such as "Ghettoblaster" and "Testin' My Raver."
