Australia’s trap-metal band The Weight Of Silence released their new single “Gucci & Gold”. They channel Dropout Kings and Body Count on the track, which features a new sound highlighting classic hardcore and nu-metal influences.
About the single, vocalist Jacob Pedersen stated:
“Gucci & Gold is just a raw, hardcore inspired song that came together like any old band practice jam… something you can bang your head to and overall just have fun with! While our album as a whole is heavily influenced by trap, hip hop and rap, this track is mostly inspired by bands like Deez Nuts, Trapped Under Ice, Body Count, etc.”
The breakout year for the band was 2019, and their collaboration with Danny Leal (frontman of Upon a Burning Body) started the year strong. Later in the year, their introspective single “Runnin’ Through The 666” showed their ability to write mature music without losing an ounce of heaviness. The dawn of a new decade signals a new era for the band as they prepare for the release of their debut album and a yet-to-be-announced collaboration with one of the biggest acts in the game.
The tighter sound of “Gucci & Gold” sacrifices none of the groups signature menace, with breakdowns and riffs that feel more focused and polished than the bands earlier work and a lyrical styling that shows lead vocalist Jacob Perdersen’s roots in underground music.
The Weight Of Silence are ready to bring the trap-metal movement to the masses in 2020.
