Never Say Die's favorite dino, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, is back with another monstrous EP. Generation Radiation is a follow-up to his previous effort, Mutation, from earlier this year, and boy is it massive. Will you "Assimilate?"  

Midnight T's latest offering opens with "Age Of Mutants," a post-apocalyptic vision of the world after the events of Mutation in which the world has been decimated by an AI that's taken the world over via a green mist that mutates all life with which it comes into contact. The gritty, modulated bass lines and terrorizing vocal samples provide a vision of twisted, horrendous mutants within the green mist. 

The twisted "civilization" of monsters scour the scorched earth for the last remaining humans to "Assimilate" (featuring rising bass star Cromatik) into their ranks. The choice from "Age Of Mutants" has already been offered by the AI: assimilate or die. Massive, metallic bass sounds and intense drums illustrate the assimilation perfectly. This collaboration with Cromatik makes heavy use of the infamous "yoi" bass, putting it through the wringer of distortion. 

"Outworld" adds the secret Mortal Kombat ingredient into the mix, serving up fatalities with a gritty, riddim-esque bass lines and otherworldly, grinding synth work. The voice of Shao Kahn, one of the main antagonists of the video game franchise, provides the perfect vocal samples to round out the EP.
