We get few underground artists featured on Beyond the Record that possess this level of passion for the art and message within their music. This record features incredible dedication to mastery as a rapper, but also as songwriters. Voices of Terror, a duo of Mike Walker and Zero, continues to grow a dedicated fan base and are becoming veterans of their scene. From within the underground, Not Human is one of this year's best albums by far. With tracks like Devil's Contract, the lyrical theme entwines with the music and message effortlessly. In it's entirety, this record is undoubtedly motivated to grasp the listener and becomes quite evident from the first track. The album cover and song titles are also giving light to what you will hear from this release. However, Voices of Terror focuses their abilities as songwriters and on the music itself; keeping the ability of flow at the forefront of the listener's mind.
All of which - the music provides an illustrative backdrop for an expressive rapping style and brings to life what emotions the duo is trying to conjure in the fans. The Group manages to bring a sensation of nostalgia to this release and reminds of the golden era of rap music while keeping a modern appeal the focal point of each track.
To the betterment of the music, he is concise with his wording and showcases his creative mind with meaning and depth. Precision. Accuracy. I feel as though this record will appeal to a larger group of people extending to even those who may not particularly enjoy the rap genre. While this may be an album that can reach the masses in one way or another, this is a record for those who truly appreciate art in a boundary-less form. I find that freeing and compelling for many generations to come.
