Swollen Members - King of Diamonds

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Rob The Viking
Album:

While Mad Child has made a few solo Booth appearances in the interim, it’s been about three-and-a-half years since the Swollen Members have come together to bring us a fresh feature. (August 2009’s Red Dragon was the first, and thus far last, we heard from them.) Now consisting of Mad Child, co-founding Member Prevail and DJ Rob Viking, the Vancouver crew make their long-awaited return to our pages with a fresh single off their next studio album. King of Diamonds is more of the grimy, ‘90s-informed underground hip-hop that fans have come to expect, with Viking showcasing his turntable techniques in between his colleagues’ aggressive 16s. Big Shot Music, Inc offer us a glimpse of the group’s studio in the official visuals. Fans will be able to find this cut and many more bangers on the Swollen Members’ Beautiful Death Machine LP, due out March 19, via Battleaxe Records.
