A follow-up to “#Newgororder” (2014), this album sees the DJ toy with multiples genres across 13 different tracks, spanning from EDM, house, hip hop, trap, and Borgore’s signature sound of ‘gorestep’ – triple drum patterns with heavy metal influences. The album features the likes of Estonian rapper Tommy Cash, Nigerian rapper Princess Vitarah and even American pornographic actress Abella Danger. Five singles from the album have been released so far – “Summerlake”, “911” (featuring Abella), “Petty”, “Tetris” and “Forever In My Debt” (featuring Tommy Cash and Ruuth).

The album starts off with “G.O.A.T.” – a short, yet catchy dubstep interlude, and from the second it begins, you know you’re in for a wild ride. From the dubstep influenced second single “911”, to the reggae and dancehall tinged “Choke Me”, the R&B and trap-fused “Come Over” and the electro-house “Snowstorm”, there is a large variety of different styles and sounds present throughout the tracks. There is midtempo songs that are perfect to listen to when relaxing, and more up-tempo stuff which is made for the dancefloor – so there is something for everyone. Lyrically, the album talks about topics ranging from romance, money and sex.

Borgore hails from Tel Aviv, Israel and is now based in Los Angeles. The DJ first shot to fame with the release of his single “Decisions” (2012), featuring vocals from Miley Cyrus. He has also collaborated with rappers such as G-Eazy, Juicy J and Waka Flocka Flame. His music – a mixture of dubstep, electro house and trap, has helped to garner over 500 million streams on streaming services alone. He also is the proud owner of his own label, Buygore Records.

“The Art of Gore” is out now, and you can listen to it below:
