Blending elements of Nu-Metal with Hip Hop is no mean feat. Two opposing genres normally at opposing ends of the spectrum coming together is both unorthodox but also exciting. While bands such as Rage Against The Machine and Linkin Park have blending rock and rap successfully it's rare that artists truly nail the cross genre. That's why Ezediel is such an exciting new artist. The new single ‘Burnout’ is an expert display in creating Dark Nu-Metal the leans on elements of Hip-hop so well. Blending heavily distorted guitars, deep sub bass and sparse electronic beats and Ezediel's growling flow, the track possesses a looming, intriguing soundscape which is quite original and hard to compare to other artists. This unique sound it to Ezediel's strength and shows exactly why he's starting to pick up millions of streams; it's not quite like anything else.
Speaking on the new single, Ezediel said:
"Burnout is a metaphor: I wanted to link the song to the JDM/Tuning community introducing specific sounds and, of course, titling the song as the practice of heating up the tires and produce smoke, this is based of one of my passions (engines/cars); from the other side, Burnout talks about not taking care our emotional states, pushing constantly so hard to achieve our goals that we could also produce stress and frustration, it's kind of a warning on not falling apart and respect our emotions as human beings.
I wrote the song in one day (I usually do for every one of my pieces, old school piece of paper, it's easy for me to make lyrics) and produced the whole song in a week during the summer. I just found that the guy that was renting me the home by the sea is also a musician and has a studio inside of that same building, so I rented it and worked instead of just going on vacation.”
