Seven Lions and Kill The Noise bare their teeth on ‘The Blood’
It’s been a few years since Seven Lions and Kill The Noise have gotten together for a collaboration, but they’ve brought that lull to an end with the release of “The Blood” on Seven Lions’ Ophelia Records.
Inspired by their favorite video game, “Bloodborne,” the duo have created a genre-bending amalgamation of psy-trance and dubstep, furiously pounding out everything from delicate piano melodies to intense seas of heavy bass. The racing BPM of the psy-trance segments crash dramatically into waves of churning dubstep, appropriately showing off just what these two lauded producers are capable of when they put their minds together.
They last teamed up on “Cold Hearted,” which was released via Monstercat in late 2017. The track twisted Seven Lions’ melodic tendencies with Kill The Noise’s heavy ones, thrilling fans of both artists. Both their old and new collaborations showcase the power of a melody—and the endless opportunities of what can be built around it.
