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.

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”.

Music of the Week – Wumpscut – Hang Him Higher

Recently I’ve been exploring with interest the main EBM artist and I quickly found the wumpscut’s name among the best. I’ve listened something by him many years ago, when the genre didn’t interest me, without going deeply and now, finally, I took some time to listen and understand his art. It’s surely among the most […]

Music of the Week – Danko Jones – My Little RnR

Hi guys…after a while, a new video of straight rock n roll caught my attention. It’s theme is not new, a classic tale of vampiric love and death with a nice twist at the end, very much in the vein of the old horror movies of the ’70s filled with macabre imaginary and intense passions. […]
