" Death Grips draw heavily on abrasive styles, but the group are arguably at their most lethal when they're hijacking popular tastes, as they did on 2012’s The Money Store, and as they do here. With their stacked guitar riffs, dissonant samples, and glitchy percussion, “Spikes” and “Three Bedrooms In A Good Neighborhood” invoke an alternate history where hip-hop and metal fusion didn't dead-end into visions of Fred Durst’s punchable mug. The EBM-flavored “80808” supercharges a house-y backbeat with additional crackles and pops; the choruses expand that texture, dialing up the voltage until the synths alight in an arc flash. The most straightforward of these standouts is “Eh,” a rap song anchored in glimmering, burbling synths that dart in and out of the bass drums’ margins. Unmoved by the giddy surroundings, Burnett deadpans his morbid imagery with unusual calm, as if a tranquilizer dart struck him mid-verse: “Catch me hanging from my noose like ehhhh,” he yawns, stretching out the final syllable like putty.

MC Ride has long been regarded as Death Grips’ anchor, both onstage and off: a privilege largely owed to a pair of vocal cords which never seem to tire, even as the man screams himself sick. On Bottomless Pit he offers his most athletic performance to date, double-dutching over fallen power on “80808,” bobbing and weaving over Krautrock shards on “Ring A Bell,” and howling out in agony as the machines draw and quarter him on “Warping.” It’s not all gloom-and-doom, however; “Bubbles Buried in this Jungle” and “Trash" showcase a seething monotone delivery that taps into the absurd, comedic undertones buried in this madcap project.
