* NewSoundAlbum: While they still fall under the umbrella of industrial hip-hop, each of their albums is this compared to the previous one. ''Exmilitary'' was a lot more hook- and beat-driven than their debut EP. ''The Money Store'' was considerably more electronic and less sample-based than ''Exmilitary'', and ''NO LOVE DEEP WEB'' eschews catchy hooks in general in exchange for a deeper focus on atmosphere. ''Government Plates'' took this to a new level, with a much larger emphasis on experimental electronic production and much less rapping from MC Ride. And then Ride returned in a big way for ''Niggas on the Moon'', which in general features more frenetic production, cleaner, quieter, yet far more absurd verses from Ride, and samples from ''{{Music/Bjork}}'' on every track. Let's not forget ''Fashion Week'', which takes the roots of ''Government Plates'' and plays with them at will, having special amounts of freedom since it's a wholly instrumental album. ''Bottomless Pit'' hearkens back to the accessibility and catchiness of ''Money Store'' combined with the raw aggression of ''Exmilitary''.

** "No Love" is a PerformanceVideo with the footage split into two parts put up against each other; one part is completely tinted red, and the
other is tinted green. Not to mention the sliding captions at the bottom that are in an order such as this: "on the first day I gave a fuck", "on the second day I did not give a fuck", "on the third day I gave a fuck". This then leads to the song and video sometimes being interrupted by a caption that reads: "1000%!!! I USED TO GIVE A FUCK" and a video-only metal-esque guitar riff.

* GenreRoulette: Any given song on ''Bottomless Pit'' leans either towards the band's normal electronica-tinged industrial rap or more aggressive sounds more reminiscent of heavy metal.

* DigitalPiracyIsOkay: They have a tendency to release works for free. Their debut EP, ''Exmilitary'' (and its accompanying stem collection ''Black Google''), ''Government Plates'', and ''Fashion Week'' were all self-released by the band for free. Additionally, the band streams their albums on their [=YouTube=] channel, and in response to Epic refusing to release ''No Love Deep Web'' on its original intended date, the band leaked the album themselves on various places around the Internet, which led to it getting over 30 million [=BitTorrent=] downloads.

Their music is a unique and hyper-aggressive blend of noise, [[{{Sampling}} samples]], noise, industrial, [[CarefulWithThatAxe loud]] [[HarshVocals vocals]], [[RuleOfThree noise]], and [[SubvertedTrope subverting]] and [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructing]] almost every HipHop trope under the sun. (But to make for less of a mouthful, it's been referred to as "industrial hip hop".) Their live shows are equally infamous for their sheer, nightmarish ferocity.

*** 'Full Moon (Death Classic)' is crazily offbeat, having some parts where Ride ignores the rhythm entirely (i.e. the 'buck buck buck buck' bit).
*** The first verse and last hook of 'You Might Think...' both seem to kind of ignore the rhythm behind them. (Additionally, it's in 6/8.)
*** The notes that the guitar plays in the verses and choruses in 'Birds' are of incredibly uneven and unnatural lengths. Same with the synths in the second section of 'Bootleg (Don't Need Your Help).'
*** Ride's sampled vocals on 'Whatever I Want (Fuck Who's Watching)' are weirdly syncopated.
*** 'Anne Bonny', 'Two Heavens', 'Feels Like A Wheel', 'Big House', and 'Bootleg (Don't Need Your Help)' all include abrupt tempo changes at some point in their duration.
