Trap-metal has never sounded quite so appealing before. For those whose musical taste takes them to the edges of the worlds of hip-hop and metal, trap-metal will be of no new occurrence. While there’s little information on Louie Mikal (no social media pages that I could find currently), Funeral is the follow up to his, Pain Relief EP, released this Summer, which is as equally bass heavy as his latest offering. Funeral’s pre-trap opening rides high on the current sounds of modern R’n’B leeching off hip-hop’s cool alternative edge, however, Mikal avoids the basic trap-bitch lure, sounding closer to a demented Twenty One Pilots remix by Death Grips. It’s a strong recommendation from myself to listen to Funeral with the bass set high on your speakers, as you should with any trap music, to fully embrace Mikal’s dark-set trap sounds.
