Time to put the pedal to the metal and live up to our name as Metalectro, with who else than Master Boot Record of course? Because what’s best than a song that combines Electronic and Metal music? Well, how about a brand new 9 original track album (7 + 2 bonus tracks available on Bandcamp)? The album is titled “C:\>COPY *.* A: /V” and is the Italian artist’s fifth album since Setpember 2016.
UK based dark Synthwave master Occams Laser is back with a new 10 track album. “Ascension” is the third and last chapter in a trilogy of albums dedicated to Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem the Divine Comedy (the other two albums are “Nine Circles” and “Purgatory”) and just like the previous two (as well as most of the UK artist’s music anyway) this one too follows a similar path. Dark atmosphere and retro sounding synths come together to form one of Occams Laser‘s best works to date, filled with grim compositions and heavy Electro, something that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Occams Laser‘s previous work anyway.
Starting the week with some fresh blood and some fresh music by The Encounter. An artist whose music has been in our radar for the last few months, although we only now got around to write about it since the New Jersey, USA, based artist had his new album “Bad Mood” out. Self-released a couple of weeks ago The Encounter‘s new LP comes with nine original Electro tracks, with some of them moving towards a more slow, stripped down and almost hypnotic Synthwave/Retrowave direction, while others follow a more hi-energy hard Electro or even Future Techno influenced approach.
French duo Christine grace us with their presence once more on Metalectro and of course the release of their LP “Atom From Heart”, which was out a few days ago on Uprise Music. The album consists of eleven original songs, with eight of them being brand new and previously uheard ones with the rest three being the two lead singles/videos “Howling Wave” and “Drama” (feat. T La Rock) plus an instrumental version
Been a while since we had an all out Drum & Bass release that we really enjoyed throughout to write about but when a new Blackout Music single is waiting in your inbox that has to be a good sign. Besides, it’s no secret and everyone who’s been following the blog for a while now should already know we’ve always enjoyed most music coming by the Netherlands based heavyhitter label, even more so when it comes from the label bosses Black Sun Empire. And as interesting and exciting it is to finally have some new music by the trio to writte about, things get even better when you realise that their new single features also Noisia
