spwn-kill by Hangtime: Review
There is a sense of mystery and eeriness to the sound of “spwn-kill”– a song by artist Hangtime. The dark techno music has a bit of avant-garde thrown in. This is experimentation at its finest. The beats and keyboard production has diversity, and I truly enjoyed every minute of it.
The music itself of spwn-kill paints a picture of a cinematic chase between the Terminator overlords of Skynet, and the fierce missionaries who fight against them. With their latest album, spwn-kill (released in June 2022), Hangtime continues to stand out as a band with a unique sound thanks to their skillful blending of influences. This stunning latest arrival to the artist’s repertoire has the sense of a genuinely potent take on their style, incorporating all of the aspects that make their music so distinctive with a compelling and unique flow.
The song is almost entirely instrumental with a heavy focus on the vocals. There is a well-balanced accompaniment that provides a solid foundation for the song’s primary themes to flourish. In the end, spwn-kill is a fantastic illustration of what can be achieved using hangtime, and it seems like a great opportunity for the artist to add to their musical canon and cement their place in history. The production skills on display here are top-notch, and the performer gives a memorable performance, clearly not hesitant to create the mind-blowing epic melody that it already has become.
