Brimming with wobbly bass and laser-bomb, dubstep-y effects, Mecha Hell’s “Assault” is nothing short of massive. It’s an earful of ra-ta-tat drums uproar, Megatron samples, and plangent 2-step, sieved in a woozy jam that smacks you in for a head banging experience. Incorporating Oriental-lite keys in the lines of Skrillex’s infamous "Kyoto” and a recall of Skream’s “Vacillate”, Mecha Hell isn’t wasting any opportunity for sloppy or anticlimactic turns. However, there are brief moments that could have used less shrill and a bit more bass, but on second thought, this is why the track is called “Assault” in the first place.
