Though initially planning to drop on Halloween, Xzibit, B-Real, and Demrick have opted for the Devil’s Night drop as a substitute. Either approach, Serial Killers: Day Of The Dead is upon us, boasting seven tracks of sinister warmth. It’s evident from the opening moments that Day Of The Dead displays on an easier time, eschewing many musical traits and patterns we have come to affiliate with “up to date manufacturing.” It’s truthfully refreshing, particularly for individuals who grew up bumping Xzibit and Cypress Hill data within the early aughts.
Tracks just like the Nottz-produced “Get Away With It” evoke shades of “Symphony In X Major,” whereas the hard-hitting opener “(W)e (A)re (R)eady” makes use of intelligent staccato percussion to kick up momentum. Penultimate monitor “Fruit Punch” brings some relaxed levity to the undertaking, whereas nearer “Things Fall Apart” raises the stress to a simmering observe. Salute to X, B-Real, and Demrick for this one!
