Review Summary: Let There Be War is a savage assault of old-school raps worthy of maestros like Ghostface Killah and Scarface

While Conway the Machine tries to tour the war-mongering Russia, Avalanche the Architect unveils Let There Be War, a real savage assault of old-school raps worthy of maestros like Ghostface Killah and Scarface.

The album welcomes the listener with an apache battle cry – a signature move of Avalanche, a real earworm that is scary and humorous at the same time. From the very first sound, you are well aware of what to expect, and that is a massive boom-bap/Memphis vibe.

You want a tango? You get strangled. Avalanche spits out aggressive and smart bars on Ango Ambo, the second track that really caught my attention (this time because of the lyrics, not just the flow). The song is accompanied by an AI-generated video, which creates a fever-dream feel with pictures that blaze inside the mind of a gangsta rapper.

On the upcoming tracks, Avalanche continues to scream at his listener, abundantly pouring multilevel threats, and he does that good. But where he really shines is on Bring Boom Bap Back, or as I refer to it, Quattro Bee. The beat here is a straight gem banger from the late Wu era, and the rapping is beyond confident and intimidating.

It comes as no surprise that Avalanche talks about the war in Ukraine – on his self-titled track. Here he also rhymes “rapper” and “rapper”, a sign of style or a mental disease.

Avalanche the Architect is definitely not an amateur but is also positioned to receive way more praise and attention than he currently has.
