Another name that has been keeping us busy here with their releases is the Chicago based duo Midnight Conspiracy who are back with a new EP on Ultra Records. The new Midnight Conspiracy EP is titled “Zero Hour” and contains 4 new originals, 1 of them being “Satellite Pt.2″. The EP was out on the 18th of February and even though it certainly isn’t the heaviest or loudest Midnight Conspiracy release we have ever heard it still stays on the harder electro side and does a nice job delivering some of the artist’s characteristic sounds and elements while at the same time keeping things fresh by not following the same old recipe but by taking the tracks into a slightly new direction. Probably not a Metalectro favorite but definitely one to check out!
Hell-o all and here we are, back in action after a much needed break. No more breaks from now on though as it’s full on bass season and we have quite a few incoming great sounds to post as well so better stay tuned as things are going to get loud & busy. So, lets get rolling with some new sounds and releases and one of them is Freak Slaughter‘s “The Moon Is Rising” EP that was out on Sex Cult last month. A nice dark and atmospheric release that combines the harder electro sound with orchestral, 80′s and even French electro influences. A nice release overall and definitely one to check out if you haven’t done so yet so press play below.
If you are a fan of heavy trashy bass and raw electro then you are the right place the right time as this selection of tracks taken from the Maehtrasher 050 “Wurst Case Scenario” Compilation released on Mähtrasher Records will fill your ears with the nasty sounds you love and will leave you with a very plesant eardrum buzz. For those who missed it, the release features altogether 56 tracks, 18 exclusives and 38 tracks that serve as the best of Mähtrasher Records. Of course, not all tracks are in the trashy heavy electro style since there is quite a bit of techno on the release but we have picked 3 of our favorite electro weapons of bass destruction, so say hell-o to aUtOdiDakT, Beef Theatre and Dj Antention and play them loud!
Just like the opening post, we stay dark and heavy, this time with a freebie by an artist who those regulars on Metalectro should be quite familiar with by now as his passion for orchestral death metal and hard electro has made him a Metalectro all timer since the very early days. Mexico’s native Rocket is back with a new free EP titled “Exodium”, with it’s theme and concept revolving around Norse mythology. Great filthy sound, great atmosphere and orchestral parts and definitely a different and refreshing touch as not many artists dare to push the boundaries of electronic music like Rocket has done before and did once more in “Exodium”. Definitely an EP to check out and grab so just hit play and enjoy!
Hell-o all and it’s that time of the day once again, the time to let the heavy bass lose upon you and the world so boys and girls, if you’re reading this fasten your seatbelts and get ready for take off because today it’s going to be a nasty and bouncy ride! And getting dark and heavy right from the start here comes Gost with his debut self-titled EP and those of you familiar with the name, know what’s coming next. Out on Girlfriend Records this 5 original track EP is rowdy, loud, dark and as heavy as it gets. 80′s electro, horror movie influences, and some of the best heavy bass, full sounding trashed up synthwave you have ever heard is what you’re gonna get from Gost so for those not familiar with his work, sit back and enjoy the ride! We certainly did!
Having gone to the dark side with the previous post we might as well keep going even darker or might even say pitch black with this last post and free original track by Mr. Skeleton. It’s his latest original titled “Closer” and the track that marks the LA based artist’s comeback after having to go through some very unpleseant and unfortunate adventures with his Soundcloud profile which resulted in losing his account and having to start a new one from scratch. As annoying as that most certainyl is though, especially when losing a big number of tracks, plays and followers Mr. Skeleton is back in full dark “skeletronic” bass action and his track “Closer”, as well as the preview of his upcoming LP “The Absence of Good”, prove that he is back for good and that it will take much more than a hacker and any Soundcloud/social media problems to keep him from delivering the dark sounds we all know and love by him. So, check out”Closer”, grab it and make sure to follow Mr. Skeleton‘s new account to stay up to date with all his new tracks!
Staying on the dark side and here comes some more fresh blood too and the second newcomer of the day on Metalectro, who goes by the name Perturbator. To borrow Perturbator‘s autobigraphical info from his Soundcloud profile, “the legend says he’s half human, half synthesizer”. Well, we can’t confirm neither doubt the legends and folklore surrounding Perturbator but let us tell you that first we like the idea of this legend being true a lot and second we don’t care because we like his music. A mix of 80′s dark electro and synthwave, darksynth as Perturbator himself likes to call it and all those of you who are fans of the style are going to love his work. So, here’s his latest original titled “She Moves Like A Knife” and it’s time to let the synths ( or half synth-half human actually) to do the talking, so press play and enjoy!
Here comes another new release and some fresh blood actually since it’s the first time Black Object is blogged or even getting a mention on Metalectro, so lets give them a warm welcome. Not much info about Black Object is being made public for the time being, we do know though that the Black Object debut and self-titled EP was out a couple of weeks ago on Subterra Records featuring 5 original tracks. The responses about “Black Object” EP have been positive right from the start and listening to it you can understand why. Deep, big and loud, ”Black Object” EP brings together bass with melody, combines dark and bright moods and atmosphe and even mixes up the different bass music styles keeping things interesting and fresh throughout the whole release. A very pleasant release to listen to and definitely a debut EP that should help Black Object get on the map of the heavy bass music scene. It certainly did help to get on the Metalectro map at least. Check it out!
Hell-o all and we hope you had a great weekend! New week under way and here we are returning on duty with some big sounds, filled with bass as usual! So lets get things pumping, starting with a new release and a track selection from Tim Ismag‘s new LP titled “illA”, out on Firepower Records a couple of weeks ago. 10 originals on it and overall a pretty nice LP, with top production and the quality the Russian artist brings with every new release. As for those wondering why we have a selection of tracks blogged and not the full LP, we only picked our very favorites without that meaning the rest aren’t good too. Big bass, fair use of heavy guitars, which is no surpise coming from Tim Ismag and a release to check out without a doubt.
3rd post and 3rd new release for today and in fact a what hellish coincidence too since it’s the 3rd artist from Italy to be blogged as well. None of this is important though, not when the Italian brutal duo Belzebass is back with a new EP at least. And it’s needless to say that these guys aren’t joking around. It’s no coincidence they are considered to be one of the heaviest electro duos and their new EP “Welcome To Hell” is the perfect proof of that. Demonic, dark, aggressive and heavy, this is “take no prisoners” Electro, the kind that only a few handpicked artists like Belzebass, Laforcah and Gor FLsh (plus a few more) don’t hesitate to repeatedly deliver without any remorse for being considered too offensively twisted (check the official video below). This is authentic bad boy electro that screams “fuck off music industry and commercial standards” and not your bubblegum festival music so you better make sure you are up for it before pressing play.
