Bronx rapper Fenzrir is at the forefront of the newest subgenres in hip-hop. Self-describing his sounds as being “Viking inspired,” Fenzrir’s sound aligns itself with the Rap Metal and Rap Rock sounds. While his beats play as standard hip-hop production with metal infusion, Fenzrir’s vocals resemble Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Bring Me The Horizon’s, Oli Sykes. The New York rapper’s most recently released track, and Berzerker is a prime example of the new sounds he is exploring.
With a seemingly primal beat, almost reminiscent of the Game of Thrones score, Fenzrir’s track Berzerker portrays the sound of a potentially groundbreaking genre. As his vocals gradually increase throughout the minute and a half long track, Fenzrir explodes onto the song’s soundscape halfway through. His screamo-rap vocal sound provides a sense of rage and gossamer aesthetic. With an EP due out soon, all eyes are on Fenzrir to see how he evolves his sound.
