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.

A montly series of Playlists and selection of tracks blogged, uploaded on the channel or featured on the Metalectro pages during this month in one way or the other. Please note that due to some of the tracks being available only on Soundcloud or Spotify (for whatever reason) the track selection might be slightly different between Soundcloud and Spotify. The good news is that a version of this monthly Playlist series will always be available on both services for streaming so you can feel free to pick your poison. A big thank you to all for listening and checking out the blog/channel, to the labels for the promos of their releases they keep sending us and most importantly to the artists themselves for the great music. Enjoy! Continue reading »

Metalheads and Synthwavers rejoice! Long time Metalectro favorite duo and regular Electronic headbangerz Dance With The Dead are back with a new album. “B-Sides” Volume 1 includes 15 previously unreleased originals by the duo (as the title suggests) but don’t let the title fool you because Dance With The Dead are delivering some grade-A material right here, full of their characteristic brand of dark Synthwave for which they are known and loved for. Influenced by 80’s horror to 80’s Thrash Metal, as one would normally expect by Dance With The Dead, at least with their previously recorded/older material (and we’re not trying to predict or imply anything by saying that – just to be crystal clear) the tone is set right from the Continue reading »

The good people over at Lazerdics Records are gracing us once again with their presence on our cyberspace (for the second in the last couple of weeks), this time with a new LP coming by Calgary, Canada, based artist Stilz who appears for the first time ever on Metalectro but hopefully not the last. The Canadian artist had his new album released a couple of weeks ago (January 13) including 11 tracks, 9 of them being originals and the remaining 2 remixes/VIP versions. Admittedly Stilz‘ “Starcrash” took a while to grow on us since we were skeptical about it for some time (truth be told), although after a few listens its more stripped down, atmospheric Synthwave approach and 80’s Electronica influences finally Continue reading »

Coming straight from the future (the exact year of release isn’t known to us) and right into you speakers here’s Lazerdics Records‘ recent compilation “Future Dark Club” Volume 1. Including 12 original songs from some artists you probably are (very) familiar with (Lazerhawk, Dance With The Dead) and some you might not have heard of before, the team over at Lazerdics has put together a nice collection of mainly Synthwave music from artists from around the globe. And as one might expect from such compilations the influences may vary when you have 12 different artists contributing with original music, as is the case with “Future Dark Club” too. From House (“Punkfunk“) to Metal (“The Man Who Made a Monster“) and even Continue reading »
