Attack Slug - The Lowest Point EP

Looks like nerdcore hip hop rapper Attack Slug has dropped his newest EP since the well receive Achievement Unlocked album which came out way back in 2008 (and still gets plays from me on a regular basis). The new album, The Lowest Point, is five tracks of nerdcore, but unlike a lot of the upbeat tunes of other artists, Attack Slug takes on some more serious topics about living in these life and times of the internet age.

The album is a short trip, clocking in at just under 13 minutes. Kicking off with the dreary intro, Disillusionment, we get an idea of what the EP is going for in terms of mood. This drops us right into the opening track No Love. We are greeted by a laid back beat alongside Attack Slug's signature voice and rap style. The tracks all come through well, and the pace moves briskly so that none of the songs overstay their welcome, and invite repeated listens. The songs all fit together very well and none of them sound out of place on the EP.

The final track is also the title track, The Lowest Point, and starts off with a sunken, dark vibe which leads to a quick verse to close out the EP and make a succinct point about what this album has been all about.

You can grab this EP, and I highly recommend you do, over at The Lowest Point page on Attack Slug's website.

Also be sure to check out the articles I have written so far over there, and perhaps leave some comment love and let the folks there know that there are plenty of fans for articles about video game inspired music!

Here is a list of articles I have written so far for The Start Screen.

Attack Slug - Achievement Unlocked album release


Attack Slug has released his second album in rapid succession (the first being the amazing Endsville is Burning). The new album, Achievement Unlocked comes in at ten songs covering important gaming topics like forums, fanboys, the year 200X, and of course, how great Attack Slug is at video games. The album also includes guest rappers such as TYT, The Ranger, and KABUTO. My personal favorite track from the album? Skydiving With Sharks, but hell, they are all awesome tracks.

You can download the album free of charge at attackslug.com/?page_id=37.

"I got that blip blip, schooling all you dipshits. drop another game, don't I get my motherfucking points?"

Attack Slug - Endsville is Burning album release


New Jersey nerdcore rapper Attack Slug has released his newest effort, entitled Endsville is Burning. You can download the album free from Attack Slug's website. Working with other famed nerdcore artists like T.Y.T. and KABUTO, and rapping over beats from the likes of DJ Snyder and OCRemixer Franz Keller, he makes a distinct and interesting disc. The album is nine tracks long and clocks in at just under half an hour. Definitely worth a listen as Attack Slug has a style all his own. My favorite track? Why Earth Defense Force no doubt! He even has some EDF remixes up from Don Vito, and our pal IllGill, be sure to check out those remixes too!
