Dolore – Fantasmi (HPGD Productions)

As I am sure the record label is well aware, horror, pain, gore and death are all key ingredients of any good horror film. So too are decent direction, acting, story and scares but show me as film with everything… Continue Reading →

GosT – Valediction (Century Media)

Valediction opens with an absolute blast of keyboard driven black metal in ‘Relentless Passing’, a total howl which then drops into some gentler darkwave and out again into the harsh industrial landscape. Yes I’m back with GosT again where genre… Continue Reading →

Night Machine – Themes Of The Dead (S/R)

Synthwave is a fast-growing genre of music at the moment. Given how one person can easily compose an entire album off a few ideas and put it all together, there is no real surprise that there is a vast community… Continue Reading →

Master Boot Record – Direct Memory Access (Blood Music)

Master Boot Record deserves your attention for many reasons. I can only point out some of them here, because you most likely don’t have the time or the patience for a lengthy essay. But hopefully, after you’ve read this, you… Continue Reading →

Hollywood Burns – Invaders (Blood Music)

“Burn Hollywood burn, taking down Tinseltown Burn Hollywood burn, burn down to the ground” a total banger of a song and just reading those words it should be going round in your head. However this is not the work of… Continue Reading →

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of… Continue Reading →

GoST – Possessor (Blood Music)

I think this is the second or third album by the entity that is GoST but my first encounter, and it is a little hard to tell as there appear to be a whole collection of EPs and stuff online…. Continue Reading →

Perturbator – New Model (Blood Music)

I, probably like many other metal heads in the world, got into Perturbator aka James Kent, via the “Dangerous Days” album released in 2014 which for me was a chance listen when browsing the Blood Music bandcamp pages just sampling… Continue Reading →

Interview – Bloody Hammers

They’re creepy and they’re kooky mysterious and spooky. Nope let’s not go down that route even if their world is a little on the strange and horrific side. Bloody Hammers consist of Anders Magna and Devallia who pass their time… Continue Reading →

Veikchild – Dark Hellectro Monument (iM Electronica)

Veikchild are a project formed by an unknown mastermind (I’m guessing French) and I suppose they are the goth/darkwave entry into the synthwave movement. This is more inspired by films/video games music with occasional bouts of singing added in. Their… Continue Reading →

Anvil Strykez – Stealth Attack (Wolf Force Corporation)

I live in a world where ‘synthwave’ appears to be a thing. I’m not sure how this happened; a musical genre seemingly inspired by the soundtracks to 1980s straight to VHS films and other forgotten ‘classics’ (anyone remember the title… Continue Reading →

Klimt 1918 – Sentimentale Jugend (Prophecy)

Every now and then, a record comes out of the blue that takes you totally by surprise – and Klimt 1918’s first album in eight years is very much one of those releases. The initial signs were not hugely promising… Continue Reading →
