INFINITY is the sophomore album from British rapper Scarlxrd and follows 2018's DXXM. Blending elements of trap and drill with the ferociousness of screamo, the album sees Scarlxrd deliver an uncompromising set of brutal hip-hop tracks. ~ Rich Wilson

Good-natured YouTube star turned demonic rapper Scarlxrd presents one of his more intense 180-degree turns of image and style. Though Marius Listhrop went from creating goofy and humorous video content to briefly fronting the rap-metal act Myth City, his prolific work as Scarlxrd is significantly shades darker. Immxrtalisatixn is the eighth collection of Scarlxrd material since he began releasing frequent mixtapes and albums in late 2016. Clocking in at an hour-and-eight-minutes, the album's 24 tracks are all different variations of eerie melodies, industrial beats, and lyrical flows that alternate between gasps, gulps, and histrionic screams. There's talent hiding behind Listhrop's unending screaming, and when the aggression momentarily subsides there's plenty of evidence that he's a serviceable rapper and even an occasionally clever lyricist. In the moments when Scarlxrd breaks even slightly out of his template of scream-rap distress, the results are interesting. The production on "NX LXVE" experiments with sub-bass synth tones and makes more space for intricate flows than the majority of the mostly screamed album. "Ask" is the most daring strike on the entire album, with extended gospel-soul samples and a beat that's a throwback to golden-era '90s hip-hop. Still shouting at top volume, Scarlxrd makes an unexpected (and possibly unintentional) nod to Das EFX, Souls of Mischief, and the like. Dropping in at almost any point of Immxrtalisatixn will likely offer a slight variation of Scarlxrd's relentless, maxed-out approach. The general tone is menacing, angry, and meant to offer the same dark thrills as a gory haunted house attraction, each new song a hired hand in a zombie costume jumping out from the shadows with a chainsaw. As the tracks drone on in a blur of distorted instrumentals and monotonous screams, Immxrtalisatixn becomes more exhausting than thrilling. ~ Fred Thomas
