Kayzo releases emo-rock bass feeler with shYbeast from I See Stars and Frank Zummo from Sum 41
Dubstep’s rockstar, Kayzo, releases another rock-fueled bass venture, “Cruel Love,” with the help of the lead vocalist from I See Stars, shYbeast, and Sum 41 drummer, Frank Zummo. The raucous offering came to fruition via a partnership between Ultra Records and Kayzo’s Welcome Records.
Knocking on the angst-ridden door of turn-of-the-century emo rock, “Cruel Love,” employs shYbeast’s sultry vocals above acoustic drum sounds and a fluttering guitar melody. Listeners are met with a bout of distortion that leads to an opening for a hyper drum buildup into gritty bass with emotive sustained notes.
Kayzo has had quite the year developing his new label and collaborating with more artists in the rock space such as Of Mice and Men, Travis Barker, Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low, blessthefall, and Our Last Night.
