Guy who does Cloudkicker wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered this in a single day then released it a day later.



My absolute favourite artist, even surpassing the mighty Mr Townsend. Would really quite like a new album right about now.

First album of 2018.

It's pretty damn cool.
Got a bit of the dark retro vibe, but mixed with that tacky electro industrial synth-rock sound that I get a kick out of.

Yeah technically Cloudkicker are immense, but two large drawbacks for me. First, it's a one-man affair, meaning no live shows. Second, and the real kicker (pun intended) is the lack of vocals.

The guy has talent dribbling from every orifice, why he doesn't put a band together is beyond me.

The lack of vocals doesn't bother me, I'm quite into instrumental post rock and shoegaze style stuff and I think this style in particular is probably better without them. It's nice to just get caught up nodding to the polymeter rhythms without vocals distracting you.

He's actually a full time pilot and Cloudkicker has always been just a project for him to express himself with, it's even all available for free on his Bandcamp. A full band would be terrific though, the clips from his short tour where Intronaut filled in as his backing band in the US a few years ago all look immense.

New Carpenter Brut album!

Rather than go for the more sinister, dark, glitchy industrial vibe that most of his fellow artists have done, he seems to have gone all in on the 80s vibe for this album. It's a lot less aggressive than Trilogy. Still great though.

Trying to get along with the album. it's got some bangers, for sure. But also a few that I'm just not feeling. Mostly the ones that try to be pure 80s aren't sticking.
I really could do without that Jerry Only sounding guy trying to croon on Beware the Beast as well.

Hope it'll grow on me, but I've tasted the darker side of the synthwave scene and that turned out to be more my speed.

Wah! Holy crap!
New King Goat album next month!

Conduit is going to be a tough one to beat, but I'll be damned if I've not already pre-ordered the CD version!

I keep seeing this band getting reccomended to me. And I was like... really? Really?

https://masterbootrecord.bandcamp.com/a ... pt-request



Really!

Listening to the latest album currently and it's impressing the hell out of me. It feels like the best kind of demo scene chip tunes seen through a a synthwave / proggy industrial metal lens.
Major kudos to the commitment to the theme as well. Makes me want to build a 486.

I wasn't that interested but clicked anyway. Glad I did, not sure I could listen again to the whole album but liked the vibe.

Bugger it, dumping this here!

We did a live in the studio session that was pretty damn fun. It features two tracks from our upcoming release and is a straight up live recording, no post production trickery for now.

Enjoy!

Pretty fierce. Your vocalist has some decent pipes on him.

I've been listening to the latest Faith No More album. Missed it when it first came out, but they're one of those bands I listened to a lot as a teen so I was curious to see how they'd measured up years later. It's a slightly different style, but overall a pretty decent album. I really love their aggressive as hell bass tone.

Because computer synthwave metal is apparently a thing now?



A little less MS-DOS. A little more djent with synths and 80s rock guitars.
Still pretty rad. :-k

Alright!
One more! Just one. Then I'll move on from this whole "Haha! Computer references!" stuff and start listening to real music.

Excuse the cover track faux pas. Should have probably ressurcted the video game music thread for these.


First is this medley of the music from Dune, which was already one of my secret favorite game soundtracks. This version gives some real edge to the originally spacey French syth sound.


And this is just absurd fun. Sounds real gnarly, adds some fun flourishes of it's own along with using all manner of samples from the game. Bonus points for using the Chaingun as percussion.
