Music of the Week – Abstract Void – Wind of Reminiscence

Hello guys! It’s been a while, again… Here is one of the most original bands that I’ve listened in the past months. Abstract Void, a one man band project, creating a very original mix of synthwave and…depressive black metal. Yes, you’ve read right: Synthwave and depressive black metal. And it’s very very good and cleverly […]

Music of the Week – Ashbury Heights – Glow

Music of the Week – The Coffinshakers – Last Night Down By The Grave

Hello guys, it’s time to return to some more “traditional” sounds here on Illusion City.

The group’s trademark is Rob Coffinshaker’s (who also […]

Music of the Week – Perturbator – Sentient

Summer is drawing nearer and nearer every day! So time for some more new music in the wave scene…time for Perturbator which is becoming famous for his horror and sci-fi themed synth music. Sometimes the genre it’s called synthwave or retrowave, but the naming is still quite not definite in these new scenes. For sure […]

Music of the Week – Microchip Terror – Manufactured Existence

Hi my friends…it’s time for some new music! Microchip Terror is an excellent synthwave band, which has just released a new album, the very good “Illegal Experiments”. Heavily influenced by the atmospheres, themes and tones of ’80s horror and sci-fi cinema, they chunk out a very interesting blend of old and new sounds. Also, they […]
