New Track: "of Iron" (Feat. Gozu) - Acid Orphan

Acid Orphan, a.k.a. Andrea O. Bullard (of Etheric Felines), recently released a new single. DJ Diabolic handles production on “Of Iron,” which also features Gozu. Envisioning a time-traveling, alternative reality of living during the time of Genghis Khan, the track exhibits authoritative aggression. This storming delivery is compounded by the rock/hip-hop hybrid beat, injected with noise, as the percussive push remains omnipresent. An attacking intensity permeates within an energetic exuberance.
