Speed adds to the overall mood of the piece, further emphasizing the tension that comes with waiting for a plan to fully unfold.

Underpinning all of this is a tender melody woven deep within the track’s DNA, helping to give the strong a confident stride that guides the entire piece forward.
From a singular piano chord and surreal vocals screaming across the track, things get started pretty quickly. The hit of the bass hints at the groove that eventually settles with such a tremendous sense of power. Letting the vocals further become part of the overall sound, with almost a shoegaze-like feedback loop, is a rather masterful take and helps to make the song feel all-consuming. Layer upon layer of sound is applied with a painterly precision, as King Gheno’s flow consumes the entirety of the song. By letting everything build up carefully King Gheno creates a virtual tapestry of sound. Over the course of the piece everything gradually careens wildly. Towards the end King Gheno strips the layers away revealing the powerful heart of the piece.
