MegaDrive lead us back to the electronic music of the 80’s with nowadays sound make-up. If you’re too lazy to dig up classics like Klaus Schulze (and Tangerine Dream), Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and so on, MegaDrive will introduce you to their fabulous world. It’s called retro revival and it’s definitively a pleasant and an alternative option. And well, if you’re old or wise enough to listen all those wonderful and creative artists of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s already, MegaDrive it’s still a quite nice option to fill up your ears and feed your brain with damaged sound waves.
Also recommended for fans of Power Glove, LazerHawk, Pertubator, Mitch Murder, etc.
198XAD, the new album from Mega Drive, pulses with dark, technological grit buried deep within the shadows of a future memory, a memory that is now all but forgotten. 14 tracks that will bend your mind to its limit and shatter your reality into a million pieces, taking you to places you never thought existed. 198XAD will implant itself into you and not let go.
198XAD is out on Subterra Records and now available through all major digital retailers.
My only reservation it’s regarding the cover: it’s horrible. I know it’s probably fit the trend and it’s in consonance with the 80’s horror props, but still, it’s pretty kitschy. Nice music, bad taste art work!
