Ever wondered how similar EDM is to metal? Well, now you don’t have to. While the metal community has breakdowns, the EDM community has bass drops— and they’re more similar than you think. Here are 5 EDM songs that I think any metal enthusiast should give a chance.
Slander featuring Asking Alexandria – “Kneel Before Me”
There’s something about ravers that compels us to want to break our necks, and as someone who enjoys both EDM and metal music, I guarantee this song will make you want to headbang too.
Kayzo featuring Bad Omens – “Suffocate”
If you want more EDM/metal collabs, Kayzo is a must. From collabs with Matty Mullins to Our Last Night and even Underoath, Kayzo is definitely one of the most creative, and original, producers in the EDM community.
Illenium & Excision featuring I Prevail – “Feel Something”
The track title says it all. This song will easily make you feel something with its feel-good vibes. For anyone who is hesitant about giving EDM a try, this song is an absolutely perfect balance of both genres.
PhaseOne featuring Periphery – “Digital”
You actually might mistake this one for a Periphery song at first, but just wait until the drop. The dubstep in this is pure filth. PhaseOne is certainly worth checking out as well for metal infused dubstep.
Jauz & Adventure Club ft. Kyle Pavone – “Frequency”
I don’t know what it is about Kyle’s voice in an EDM track that makes it feel so fitting. With house producers Jauz & Adventure Club, this one is also another feel-good track that will let us celebrate and remember the talented Kyle Pavone.
