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.
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!
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
