"Darkness and Divinity," Horrifik Kreationz - This double disc from a popular local rap collective focuses on two sides of life and creation while demonstrating the group's versatility. The "Darkness" set, as you would expect, takes a hard look at life in the modern world. This is amply demonstrated on the tune "N.O.W.," which interpolates Tears For Fears' "Mad World." Other heavy hits on this side include "Krusade," "Bad Seeds" and "Anneliese," which ventures into the genre known as horrorcore. Disc No. 2 flips the mood instantly. Upbeat and hopeful, the vibe is represented in the fine opener, "A Blessing." Other gems include "A Perfect Day," "Golden Gloves," "Good Times" and "For Today"." Heck, the whole set is fantastic and bright. The flow and lyrics by HK are solid and tight. Sparse but catchy musical accompaniment allows the MCs to shine.
“Horrifik Kreationz created a shocking showcase a Pueblo Records & Tapes, on July 28. They were the headlining act. Rock N’ Roulette, Mikey Mic, Samantha Medina, Naimliss and Krusha of Horrifik Kreationz, Brown Ale, Lyrical Mischief and Brown Ale were the opening acts. Krazy D and Evil One were the main support.”
““ Philosophikal Kadence,” Horrifik Kreationz. From this up-and-coming rap/hiphop collective comes this well-stocked (22 tracks, including several skits) new record. Sonically, the disc is keen: clear vocals, thick beats and interesting use of synths and sound effects (guitar riff samples, backward masking, etc.) The rhyming skills of this crew are slick, ranging from super-tongued blasts to drawn-out couplets. True to the group’s name, there is a bit of an eerie, dark atmosphere on several of the songs — both musically and lyrically — much like that found on songs by RZA and his associated clans. Personally, I found the bouncy, upbeat “Move On” to be a highlight. I can see this being a popular song to get a dance club moving.
