Ice Nine Kills - Hip To Be Scared ft. Jacoby Shaddix (Single Review)
Metalcore group Ice Nine Kills dropped a new single last week titled "Hip To Be Scared" ft. Jacoby Shaddix off of their "The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood" album that comes out on October 15th. This song is fantastic! I really like Jacoby Shaddix's parts, and feel like he fits into their overall sound very well. This song is very metalcore and also very pop punk. It also has a brief interlude that sounds very upbeat and sounds sort of like trumpets playing beach party music or something? It definitely took me by surprise, but it sounded cool. This song also features sirens and news report vocals in it. The whole thing is very brutal. The video and the song are dark and have many references to "American Psycho". The video is so well done and is an absolute bloodbath. I enjoyed this one a lot, and I definitely recommend checking it out. ~Gangis
