“Herbivore” is very hardcore
This new Gud Vibrations track is the first that RIOT produced and released during the quarantine. “Herbivore” contains brain-melting acid lines, crunchy synth phases, and constant bass rhythms. To start off, the sounds were deep and mysterious until it transitioned to the frenetic loops. Those loops later paved the way for the bass rhythms that are prominent highlights of “Herbivore”. There were cymbal clasp that accompanied the glitch-like sound boosts that enhanced the volume of the whole track. One can only imagine how the song would sound like if it was being played at EDC, UMF, Tomorrowland, etc.
