Album Reviews

With their fifth album Reckless Love take their fans on a short trip back to a time that seems much brighter and happier then today, the 80 and with this they give us what probably many of us could use right now, a break from the grim reality. Read the full review on our page.

Strap yourself in to a Delorian, switch on the flux capacitor and let yourself be transported back to the eighties. Stripped of all former metal boundaries, Greek avantgardists Hail Spirit Noir have penned a sublime synthwave soundtrack to celebrate their tenth anniversary.

Perturbator served up another collection of his signature synthwave with ‘Lustful Sacraments’, albeit more on the gloomy and nihilistic side of things.

Retro electronics and modern heaviness are Master Boot Record’s strong suit. His latest release is none the lesser for it. Here is ‘Floppy Disk Overdrive’.

Black no 1. True Norwegian Black? No, the only real black is Pinkish Black. With no more than a stack of synths and a drum set this dynamic duo pull of an incredible mélange of synthwave , doom and ambient.

Synths, pop, geeking out, sci-fi and a punky “we don’t care what you think” attitude… enter Hatchling! Everything must be destroyed!
