SLANDER and Crankdat went back to their metal roots with their latest heavy-hitting track. Titled “Kneel Before Me”, this rail-breaking bass and metal crossover features none other than the legendary metal band Asking Alexandria.
Not often do you get to hear a metal band of this calibier collaborate with some of the biggest bass music artists in the game.
Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop leads the charge with some ominous vocals preparing listeners for the chaos that is about to ensue.
Then it happens. The song breaks into absolute madness and listeners are battered with a fury of bass and metal vocals. SLANDER and Crankdat bring the bass while Asking Alexandria injects energy you can only get from a metal show. The result is a song that should be played with caution. Putting this one on might cause spontaneous mosh pits to occur.
We spoke with SLANDER and asked them what it was like to work with a band that they admire so much. In their own words:
"In high school indie rock and hardcore music were some of the first sounds we ever dove into as teenagers. Bands like Avenge Sevenfold, Underoath, Taking Back Sunday, and Asking Alexandria, could be heard blaring from our car speakers in our respective high school parking lots. This kind of music is in our core and is where a lot of our other tastes developed from, so if you can imagine we where thrilled when Asking Alexandria agreed to be a part of our new song with Crankdat! Our goal with this song was to make our own rendition of hardcore music with dubstep at its core, essentially bringing our musical roots into 2018! Hope you guys dig it!"
