“Greedy Man” brings back the industrial “metallic” sound from the 90s and gives it a new twist with modern production and gritty vocals. Defined by the artist as Industrial Trip Hop, its fresh sound redefines the genre in a way that should delight everyone akin to dark/groovy elements.
That’s right my friends! Today is Trip Hop day, and not just any trip hop but INDUSTRIAL trip hop. Oh My! Brought to us by Portuguese artist Crossmoke, this indie artist gives us just a glimpse of what his upcoming album will be like!
“Greedy Man”, as the artist puts it, is an Industrial Trip Hop production, meaning it blends the groovy with the gritty. Raspy vocals tell the tale of Greedy Man, a man so handsome, so lonely, and so evil who meets a tragic end. Crossmoke’s vocals reminds us of Marilyn Manson’s whispered, creepy singing style and the instrumentation sheds a new light on trip hop production.
A massive bass can be heard throughout the whole song, not without being introduced by sliding violins inside a somber ambience. Very Nine Inch Nail’ish to say the least. Evolving synths, electronic drums and whispered choruses make this track unique.
As for Crossmoke, he’s been around since 2016, created by Flavio Ferreira. Since then he has released two EP’s (Blow Dryer – 2019 and Rock is Dead – 2020). On his last EP, he experimented with the 90’s Seattle sound, with real drum kits and screaming choruses.
This time, Crossmoke decided to take a detour and present to us a more gritty, melodic sound. A preview of what’s to come!
