FEVER 333, PRESENCE IS STRENGTH
Think you could write, record and perfect a song in 24 hours? A GOOD one? Well, the Inglewood rapcore gods FEVER 333 have done just that; as infectiously catchy as it is relentlessly heavy, PRESENCE IS STRENGTH contains everything you could possibly want from a FEVER track… all gorgeously prepared in just one day.
PRESENCE IS STRENGTH is a musical beast; the start creeps up on you, tension slowly building as Jason Aalon Butler’s rapping becomes more frantic, ‘quickly, pick me…’. The backing track only adds to this growing tension, pushing you closer towards the edge… before you’re unapologetically hurled into the loud, scream-along chorus of “DOWN WITH THE KINGS! LONG LIVE THE SERPENT!”.
FEVER’s vocals are brilliant as ever, Butler’s rapping and singing positively gorgeous. Growls act as backing vocals in the chorus, and, paired with the masterful drumming and guitars, it sounds HUGE. This huge sound, paired with lyrics touching on banding together and ‘fighting through another year’, makes the track feel like a true call to arms. FEVER’s energy is exactly what we love about them – their lyrics insight community, and their sound encourages that community to scream, mosh and grow together. Pretty inspiring stuff!
There’s a reason we chose STRENGTH IN NUMB333RS as one of our top albums of 2019! With an anthemic sound that is sure to be an absolute treat live AND all finished in 24 hours, PRESENCE IS STRENGTH is pretty special. If you’re into punk, rap and hardcore shaking hands, then FEVER 333 are definitely the band for you… motherfuckers.
