Goth-Trad "Alone Warrior"

Japanese native Goth-Trad has been preparing for the release of his New Epoch LP for a little while now, sharing a music video for the record's lead single and doing plenty of interviews. Now, before the album drops on February 7, we're treated to this exclusive non-album banger, "Alone Warrior." The production is certainly informed heavily by dubstep, as it swells and heaves with an ominous bass tone and a half-time rhythm, but keeps things smart with the tasteful application of rolling percussion, dubby piano, and dark sound effects. If this tune didn't make it on Goth-Trad's new album, we can only imagine the caliber of the ones that did.
