downset.

From hardcore/rap roots (back when they were known as Social Justice), downset. emerged as a potent rap/metal band, in the mold of Rage Against The Machine and P.O.D., with their hardcore influences giving them perhaps a harder edge than either of those two bands. Their latest album, released ten years after their previous effort, is 2014's One Blood.
