ALostCarolean – Invasion | Darksynth

As the sirens, the first shots, and the first stones crumble and collapse, the Invasion begins. And so, begins ALostCarolean’s track, bringing us a massive darksynth song! I like the contrast of this song, something grimdark is happening. but throughout the melody you hear both hope and determination, to make things right. Such is the tragedy of war, I suppose. The flow of this tune is really smooth where it needs to be, and so it is regarding the intensity. There’s even a nice bit of guitar work in this! So You WILL, absolutely go hard on this. I am happy this track got to invade my speakers and got my attention!

But it’s not just another Changeling-themed song we’ve got here, but also the promise of an entire EP dedicated to the shapeshifters coming in about a month’s time!

Changelings, evil creatures feeding off emotions of others; morphed from birth, to deceive and hide in plain sight.

StableTwoStallion – Maud | Industrial Metal

There’s no questions StableTwoStallion is the reigning king of the industrial sound, having released several tracks in the genre last year. Sung in German, this dark, heavy track is about the working live and personality of the titular Maud Pie. The guitars are tuned down and carry a dirty, distortion while the drum snare and kick hit hard to emphasize the powerful nature of the track.

StableTwoStallion – Ewige Nacht | Industrial Gothic Metal

In the spirit of Nightmare Night, StableTwoStallions brings us this heavy, industrial track to really set the tone of the holiday. The drums hit hard, especially the kick. The guitars are loud and fuzzy which creates a disorienting feeling for the listener as the vocalist sings about the terror of the Eternal Night. The whole song has an overbearing sensation which perfect for the theme!

Fandom veteran Neu KatalYst produced a song for Pinkamena Party’s latest album: FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY. This track is impressive, especially considering it is their first published in this genre. Sections featuring headbang-inducing drums and a heavy bassline are linked together by glitchy transitions. On top of that are vocals about the power of creation given by crayons with a particularly catchy chorus.
