I would say it's proof that you can be a non degenerate degenerate

Are they legit occultists? I thought it was just for shock value or whatever.

there's some references in their lyrics and imagery that are too cryptic to be an attempt to show off

its a lovecraftian sigil aka made up

Sheeky Forums is such an awful place to discuss them because they only get memed but they have pushed modern music farther than most currently active. They straddle the threshold between experiment and poppyness by joining brutal off kilter rhythms with catchy lyrical melodies all while directing messages of transcendence through violence and suffering like a ghetto Georges Bataille

they're what cLOUDDEAD should have been. honestly i'm surprised they stayed together for 6 years without any conflicts

@Evil_kitten
yeah but there's other stuff beside the sigil of the gateway.
And you should be aware that since the 70s and the cult of Eris, "made-up magical symbols" are considered perfectly viable as long as they're massively used.

or proof that being addicted to drugs doesn't make you a degenerate, you just need help (depending on the drugs obviously)

The "break up" in 2014 might have been the result of a conflict that ended up being resolved.

@Playboyize
pretty sure they all left at various points. Andy left in 2012 when his dad died for awhile. Zach left in 2013 for some unknown reason.

He has Loa symbols on both shoulders (pic related), alchemy's brimstone/sulfur in neck, satanic crest, gemtria's devil #, baphomets on hands for left path, and a few others that reference actual occult symbols

I think there's an underlying sense of humor in most of what they do and that they don't take themselves as seriously as they may seem to. It seems like they really just like screwing around and making music together

cLOUDDEAD is completely different than what Death Grips are and what they're trying to do.

I really doubt they are addicted to drugs. They just turned over a stone the 21st century wanted left alone.

Death Grips is real on the same level that Die Antwoord is real.

I don't really know much about the occult and stuff like that.

Are you guys saying they literally believe in Satan/spirits or whatever, or is it all just symbolism?

I didn't think anyone literally believes in that stuff in the 21st century. And DG seem like they would be secular kind of guys.

@Techpill
You gotta realize that magical shit isn't something you grow out of after you start questioning it, it's something you get into after you start questioning other beliefs.

So yeah there's people who believe in that stuff.
