Welcoming on Metalectro Canadian trio Odonis Odonis who just recently released their second album “Post Plague” on Felte and well, let’s just say it got our attention right from the first listen. Combining elements of Darkwave, Darksynth, Industrial and even (Post) Rock, all with a noisy and “paranoid” (in a good way) approach, Odonis Odonis are finding the right balance between electronic and live music elements, which they maintain throughout the 10 songs heard on “Post Plague”. Definitely not an easy listen and an album that might take a while to “grow” on some listeners but then again anyone looking for (electronic) music that’s easy to the ears and brain wouldn’t probably be counting on finding their music through Metalectro. But those who do rely on us on finding and delivering some “different” electronic music to their inboxes, newsfeeds and ultimately ears, give these boys a chance. We did and we haven’t regretted it (yet)…
And while the world is wondering and confused about what the future holds after the latest developments on the political front, here we are trying to break the monotony of the social media politics overtake with some new music by Andreas Rund. The Czech Republic based artist had his new EP “Matter Of Time” out on Comorbid Records just a week ago and for those who did check and enjoy his “Gemini” EP, you won’t be disappointed. Not that those of you who didn’t will be disappointed either, especially if you’re into the whole dark and atmospheric Techno/Electronica sound. Check out Andreas Rund “Matter Of Time” EP below and let us know what you thought of it and of course feel free to show your support by grabbing a copy here!
Hailing from Isle Of White (you don’t hear this everyday in the Electronic music scene) Occams Laser is a dark Synthwave machine who keeps producing albums non-stop, so let’s devote some of our time to his music like he has devoted endless hours producing 4 LPs (alongside 3 EPS in case the LPs aren’t enough) during the last year only. Impressive? Well, certainly yes but not as impressive as his music. Following in the footsteps of artists like Carpenter Brut, Perturbator and Gost, Occams Laser‘s music is hard, as it is dark and heavy. Heavily influenced by the sounds of the 80’s his brand of aggressive and theme based “in your face” dark Synthwave will definitely leave you wanting more and “Purgatory” LP (released a month ago) is the perfect introduction to his music.
Parisian duo Aglory are back once more with a new EP. Dark, deep and heavy Electronica/Techno, as anyone familiar with Aglory‘s past releases would expect, “Mort” was out on October 28 and (what a surprise-not) just in time for Halloween. Four original tracks, all dealing with the theme of mortality and death, “Mort” was released through Kannibalen Records. Maybe not what you’d normally expect by the Canadian label which usually deals with less dark themes, although their roster isn’t exactly unwelcoming towards the heavier and darker side of things either and how could it be when it hosts artists like Lektrique, Black Tiger Sex Machine and Haezer to mention a few? A must check release for anyone into the dark Electronica and Techno, as is usually the case with Aglory so press play and enjoy!
As some of you might already know Noisia have a new album titled “Outer Edges” coming out in September and of course all fans of heavy bass music, regardless what their favorite sub-genre is, should be looking forward to this one with much excitement. What you might not be aware of yet though is that the music video for the track “Collider” was out today and the trio is bringing out the heavy guns with it. A great track which trancends genres so don’t expect us to even try sticking a label to it accompanied by a nice video and for those who enjoy a mind twisting element of weirdness in their videos you’ll be getting some of that too with “Collider”. Which of course is nothing new for Noisia (we might even say it’s not weird enough comparing to some of their past videos). Nothing else to be added here really as the music of Noisia speaks for itself, so just enjoy “Collider” and stay tuned for the album.
