Another video single from producer Rawmatik’s album, The States vs. Rawmatik. You’ve got a couple of dope emcees in Merkules and U.G., riding a beat where Rawmatik sounds like he is rocking some Phantom Of The Opera type shit, and I am definitely good with that. Madchild takes care of the chorus.
Be sure to check out the album!
Madchild and Slaine combine to form the group Supreme Villain for a track that taps on their depravity and anxiety. And who is the perfect person to provide the hook for a song of this nature? None other than the dirty-hook specialist, Rite Hook.
New video from Madchild’s forthcoming album, Silver Tongue Devil, which also serves as an introduction to the newest member of the Battle Axe family, Demrick. Madchild drops tha demented lyricism and Demrick has a very straight forward and heavy flow. C-Lance on the production.
Slaine’s new album, The King Of Everything Else, dropped today and I have to tell you that it’s the best music he’s put out in a while. I really enjoyed listening to each cut and the album as a whole. Bobby Be Real is an excellent joint to feature from the album that is brought to life in this video. TechN9ne and Madchild are invited on the cut to narrate part of Slaine’s nightmare. This is one of the better video productions I have seen in 2014. I strongly suggest that you listen to his album.
The Swollen Members realize that we all crave the ‘power’ and they deliver that message with a high energy track that hits with an impact. This is all a prelude to build the anticipation for their new album, Brand New Day. As an aside, I particularly like The Coup reference that Prevail uses in his verse for us old school heads.
A resurgent Swollen Members crew is about to set it off with another album, Brand New Day, in about a month. and though not a part of the project, this is just a little teaser of what to expect. I like the fact that DJ D-Rec got to mix it up on the track, giving this cut that little something extra to go from good to great. Prevail and Madchild are back mixing their Battle Axe wordplay and haven’t lost one step . So ‘keep the doors locked, and the dead bolts fastened’.
Madchild is taking no days off when it comes to releasing new music. A few months after releasing Lawnmower Man, the Swollen Members emcee, releases a video single for his upcoming album, Super Beast, which is due out later this year.
Madchild and Slaine are on some American Psycho steez with the release of their latest video, Chainsaw. It even comes equipped with a spoofed ending. As far s what you can expect musically: On a lyrical level it approaches lunacy. On a musical level it’s the kind of production that will stalk your eardrums for a while. This song comes off of Madchild’s most recent project, Lawn Mower Man.

Swollen Members has teased me for years with single after single for previous albums alluding to that elusive and dark sound that harkens back to their debut effort, Balance. What kept on happening is the singles would all ring true to that “dark” formula, but those previous albums would fall short of the overall sound that I craved. Sometimes it’s not fair to judge an emcee or a group on that original sound as things are supposed to evolve. But I am only human, and in the case of Beautiful Death Machine, Madchild, Prevail, and Rob The Viking have come full circle.
I am now enthralled with the idea of listening to Swollen Member’s new album, Beautiful Death Machine. With their previous albums I was teased with some dope singles in where the album never really lived up to those examples. But every track I have heard from the album thus far has been of exceptional quality with Almost Famous rounding out the group.
