Love Death Immortality
The Glitch Mob go for the jugular on their second album, brandishing concussive beats and stadium-sized riffs that channel hard rock's energy into EDM. Clanging guitar and a gnarly pick slide launch "Mind of a Beast" into the stratosphere, and "Our Demons" and "Skytoucher" ride soaring synth leads that split the difference between trance and heavy metal. "Can't Kill Us," too, brings metal's blunt force to a dubstep groove, while the electro-house "Skullclub" pounds a hole through the dance floor. They shift gears for "Becoming Harmonious," a dramatic electro-pop ballad.
