Dead Weight is fresh off of two releases already this year and now has more for us. His new gritty and fiery Riddim track ‘The Swarm’ will take you on a ride. Energy pulsates right out the gate with crunchy drums and scintillating synths. Tenacious energy rises with the build. This track really has it all. While both drops break your neck, Drop #2 is just as good as the first and actually hooks you in a completely different manner.

Dead Weight has stated himself that there is a lot of meaning to be unfolded with his tracks. Each release of his has a specific and impactful message behind it. This track represents fighting against the stressors of life. His hope is that you fight against anything on your mind that is bringing you down. ‘The Swarm’ is designed to give you the power to fight against the hardships of life.

I love an artist that supports mental health awareness at the forefront of their brand. Dead Weight is the deathstep project of Chicago-based Jackson Iturbide that stands for aggressive catharsis and against self-harm and harming others. He combines dubstep and death metal to unleash a unique experience. He had this to say about his new release:

“To me the song represents anxiety and loss of control. It’s like an ever growing wound. It seems you can contain the chaos, but can’t stop it.

Make sure to check out his other two releases this year and ‘The Swarm’ below!
