    Mainstream Pop has apparently gone D-Beat/Ministry style industrial



    Apparently this is a mainstream pop thing off of the big name soundtrack for Ye Olde Big Name Currently in Theaters Comic Book Movie. Not crazy about the vocals (although they are processed through the signature industrial lo-fi "Al Jourgensen yelling into a megaphone" type effect) or the stupid lyrics.

    But I'm not gonna lie, it's easy to dismiss the track as shit, but if it didn't have vocals you could easily mistake it for Ministry or something off the DOOM soundtrack.

    It's actually a better Ministry song than Ministry has done in a while.

    Back in my day, pop music was just lolita xanax rape fantasies.

    The only part that was unintentionally shitty sounding were the fact the keyboards are way too loud and the guitars aren't palm muted like trve thrash era Ministry riffs.

    The rest is like, it's D-Beat and Industrial, it's supposed to sound grating and lo-fi. Those are two of the biggest lo fi/lionizing genres out there. Although the track is faux lo-fi obviously, they aren't going to let anything that's not heavily produced on a multi platinum soundtrack. The lo-fi is all intentional processing obviously.

    It's not true D Beat unless it is really grating to listen to.

    It's alright. I don't mind it. Kinda cool to hear something like that come out from a pop artist in 2020.
    C'mon son.

    Not sure where you heard d-beat in that song? That's a specific drumbeat.

    Originally unleashed by Buzzcocks in 1978:


    After that you could hear a obscure swedish band playing it in 1979:


    Then made iconic by Discharge in 1980


    After that brought to even more intense levels by (also swedish) Anti-Cimex in 1982 (?)



    Also I wanna give a thumbs up to Duff McKagan (!) for playing perfect d-beat in 10 Minute Warning, also in 1982

    I agree. I don't think I'd ever listen to it, but it is different enough to interest me.

    Is that what it is? Shit, I never knew that. If I had to guess I would have never guessed it was a specific beat named after a seminal crust punk band that started with a D.

    Do you think there is room for any variation there? Toontrack does.





    Joking aside, I know there is some debate about how strict the definition should be. Confusingly, D Beat is used to refer to the specific beat, a style of drumming, and a genre.

    I was using it more in the "General Crust Punk Heavy Drums" sense. Whether or not it qualifies as D Beat depends on how strict you want to be.

    A lot of the Toontrack packs actually have some "D Beats" that would offend hard line purists.
