Favorite ThisZomboy: The Dead Symphonic EP Review

When an artist busts out a fresh release on Never Say Die Records, there are a couple things we can immediately assume: it will be heavy, grimy, and filthy as hell. To be honest, anything short of this would simply be a disappointment.
 
Fortunately for us, Zomboy’s (Joshua Mellody) newest release is all these things, and more. The burgeoning young producer out of Guildford is a mad man when it comes to unleashing earth rattling, mind-blowing anthems that will destroy dance floors, and really anything they touch. You better fasten your seatbelt tight before diving into his no holds barred style of production, because your world is about to be rocked, in the best way possible.
           
On Mellody’s most recent burst of jaw dropping creativity, The Dead Symphonic, he bursts out a thunderous set of captivating tracks that will leave your ear drums pulsating, but we promise you won’t be complaining.
 
Starting things off is “Nuclear (Hand’s Up),” a dub-based banger that will leave crowds cheering at the sheer power this song provides. High pitched dub womps and melody driven synth lines pave their way throughout this track, while pumped up vocal samples will have listener’s shaking their heads to the beat.
 
“City 2 City” is a melody driven, snare-slapping anthem that kick starts with the tantalizing vocals of Belle Humble, known for her work with Flux Pavilion and 501, which strikes up a perfect balance between exceedingly heavy and enticingly blissful. The perfect song to go all out to on an enthralling, adrenaline induced adventure. 
 
“Deadweight” opens with titillating, symphonic synth waves that are best enjoyed as the zombie apocalypse truly hits its stride. Alright so we know that hasn’t happened yet, but one can dream right?
 
Zomboy goes all out his newest release, as he continues his quick paced rise to glory with an ambitious style of EDM that can’t be defeated.
