Earlier this week, South Korean producer, ALL4HIPHOP, glimpsed that grizzly pairing with the release of his new Metal Chamber mash-up project. As the title suggests, the 50-minute mixtape paints verses spanning nearly the entirety of Wu-Tang’s catalog against some of DOOM’s most diabolical backdrops. Though it’s not a perfect blend (with some jagged BPM alignments and mixes that could certainly be smoothed over,) Metal Chamber is certainly in the rugged and raw spirit of Shaolin, deserving of at least a glance from diehards. The 17-track project even a features few bars from DOOM stitched into some sleepers from the Wu-Tang archive.
It wasn’t terribly long ago that Ghostface Killah confirmed (and then blanked on) a release date for the long-rumored (and now just purely myth,) collaborative album with the shifty Metal Faced Villain. But 2015 has come and gone, both DOOM and Wu-Tang’s respective members have released several projects since, and it seems nothing short of an actual miracle will revive the prospect of DOOMStarks ever getting pulled off the cutting room floor. That said, stranger things have happened. Suppose we’ll just have to wait it out and hope it’s gets sorted.
