20/80s With Perturbator

When it comes to the black arts of dark 80s synth music there a few producers in the scene of the calibre of Perturbator. His Terror 404 album and Nocturne City EP  were two of my favourite releases in the dark synth genre this past year and his collaborative work with other artists has also been exemplary. With so much killer music in his repertoire already the future is most certainly very promising for the future.

Perturbator's newest track is a magnificent re-envisioning of the Clockwork Theme from the seminal Castlevania III videogame. Castlevania is renowned for consistently having some of the most engaging music to ever grace a videogame, in fact my own favourite piece of music of all time is from the Super Castlevania 4 soundtrack on SNES/Super Famicom. The soundtracks to this game series are definitely worth looking into if you've not already had the pleasure.

But I digresss, this new release from Perturbator is sterling work and it's something I'd personally like to see more of; modern synth artists covering videogame soundtracks is a very attractive combination.

Let's get rockin' as only Perturbator knows how and get down to some symphonic synth sounds with this week's 20/80s on Synthetix.
