The Post-EDM rockstars of GLD unleash a new single titled “Judgement Day” on Heavyweight Records and it is, in fact, a heavy one! Coming off a DPMO feature, the duo jumps right to it with this ominous trap banger. The track gives you a sense of what’s to come with its artwork, a black and white image with a burning cross and people surrounding the cross engulfed in flames… with skull heads laying underneath the grounds. The thing that caught my eye the most was the two birds in the trees, one a bald eagle and one a white dove. The symbolism is strong with this one.
The track comes through with these eerie, villainous, organ chords then in comes in the heavy bass and trap synths. The technicality on rhythms through out the track is astonishing and probably comes from GLD‘s, real names Jake and Matty, musical background pre-EDM. The rising duo is one to keep on their radar. Listen to “Judgement Day” below.
