Track by track analysis:

1- Pick Your Poison

If you like tracks that have a heavy bass driven instrumental piece and some violins to the mix then this track is perfect for you, Pick your Poison will deliver it all to you. The violins and the bass playing in harmony were by far one of the main parts in this track’s bridge, adding both some character to the track’s instrumental piece but also mixing in the typical bass line from Freezing. We can not forget to mention the fact that the Lotus Juice rapping skills are always on point and never fail to amaze us. Although this is also these unique characteristics are what make this group such an amazing and impressive band, even in a in-game context.

We must say that this song managed to fully capture that Halloween feel and delivered it in an extremely laid-back fashion as although we have the violins added to the instrumental piece, we can still definitely discerne and point out to the typical performances that each member is group always delivers us in all their tracks so far.

If you are looking for a bass driven instrumental piece then Pick your Poison should be your number one runner up in that list.

Final rating: 

The single is only available on digital stores.
