Metropolis is the last remaining city with Nightcrawler ruling the streets in total Mad Max style, cruising hyper speed and meeting characters on the way such as Vincenzo Salvia, Diana Gitallog, Dana Jean Phoenix, SIMØNE and Patrick Rizzi, in an all star line-up of finger-licking synth and vocal personnel.
Let's cement this in space and time. Nightcrawler has raised the bar in the scene once again with the complete package. A concept album written, produced, designed and released by himself on a rad digipack CD format. A wonderful balance of synth music and scifi effects, set in a retro futuristic year 3015.

Brilliant debut release by Cobra Copter. He brings that sliding "Golden Age" 80's VHS sound to another level and seems to manually shift his synths into the starry night. There's an airy ambiance present that cloaks you with this accompanied OST feel, fine-tuning into that dangerous, suspenseful zone only a drone can penetrate, yet still leaving enough room to breathe.

GosT makes some of the most brutal… eh… I don't know what you would call it, still… Synth Wave? If it's anything, it's totally genre-crushing, sweet oblivion techno with a massive snare or clap, wipping you around like a brutal domina.
Very possessed by God knows what, GosT's S/T roams free and is a fine mixture of Death Metal effects and French House beats. This is a beast of an EP, neatly processed through a mixture of obscure machinery and spit out on the streets of annihilation. Start growling!
The EP is released by Girlfriend Records, however you can grab GosT's S/T EP ltd. edition tape/shirt package directly from his own BandCamp. Horns up! http://gost1980s.bandcamp.com
