Sullivan King and SVDDEN DEATH linking up is a match made in the depths of hell…and that’s a damn good thing.
The two heavy bass music producers are known for mixing elements of rock and metal into their music; and now the two have come together for their first collaboration, “Pursuit of Violence,” available March 13 on Monstercat.
The aptly named “Pursuit of Violence” single is a true firestorm exploring various textures and realms of heavy music. Hulking growls, unholy whispers, and thrash guitars mesh with frantic synths and skull cracking bass on the new record.
“Pursuit of Violence” marks the final single off Sullivan King’s forthcoming album Thrones of Blood, which is out in its entirety on March 17. Shortly afterwards on March 23, Sullivan King kicks off his Thrones of Blood tour, his biggest headline tour to date, which sees support from Benda, Vastive, and Level Up, as well as Kai Wachi. Amidst the bus tour he will be playing esteemed international festivals including Okeechobee in Florida, Tomorrowland in Belgium, and Veld in Ontario.
Sullivan King’s music truly knows no bounds, in 2022 he did an official remix for “Obsolete” by Of Mice & Men which was featured on the band’s deluxe edition of their 2021 album Echo, and an official remix of Atreyu’s “Baptize” – both of which showcased his top tier signature dubstep and metal fusion. He also remains a dominating force in bass music, working with some of the biggest producers in the electronic space including Subtronics, Ray Volpe, Kayzo and more.
In a scene that is consistently changing, Bay Area native Danny Howland, better known as SVDDEN DEATH, has taken a spot at the forefront in this new age of dubstep.
Finding inspiration through legends within bass such as Noisia, 16BIT, and Skrillex, Danny has managed to formulate a hybrid of textured rhythms and sub-wrecking bass-lines that are of his own maniacal sound. From releasing his first EP through the well-known Never Say Die: Black Label to now becoming one of the largest independent acts in dance music, his project continues to expand at unstoppable rates. He has sold out world famous venues such as the Hollywood Palladium and Red Rocks Amphitheater.
The dropping of his heavy hitting VOYD alter ego was a movement within itself. With the VOYD project came multiple highlighted moments in electronic music history, such as the first live play of the hit song “Behemoth” which has easily become a staple that is guaranteed to be repeated throughout the festival circuits, the moment he was lifted into the air at his SOLD OUT Hollywood Palladium show becoming the first DJ to have to taken flight during a performance, as well as being the first DJ to play at the infamous Caverns in Tennessee. It is clear that SVDDEN DEATH has made his mark within the scene and will continue to level up while doing it.
