We discuss the latest release from OSTARA, GOST and the upcoming PERTURBATOR tour, dungeon synth from Рабор (RABOR), the long-awaited Greek Black Metal release from AGATUS, and blackened-synth-death from LAMENT CITYSCAPE + THEOLOGIAN. We also contacted several DANNY HYDE contest winners: Adam Czarnecki, Christopher Ashbrook & Stanley Kindly. Check your Facebook message requests to make sure you don’t miss out. We’re also experimenting with moving to SoundCloud, as we’ve experienced some quality issues when uploading directly to WordPress.

Over the past 10 years synthwave has transformed from a small niche genre that raised eye brows in Nicolas Winding Refn’s 2011 film Drive to record labels such as Blood Music pulling millions of views on YouTube and fans of the smash-hit Netflix show Stranger Things clamoring for a soundtrack vinyl treatment. Heavily inspired by new wave, 1980′s films, soundtracks, and video games, the genre developed a retro-futuristic aesthetic found in projects such as Perturbator (Black Flame Interview), Carpenter Brut, Power Glove, Com Truise, and more. Among these artists a ghost haunts the genre, pulling more heavily from classic slasher films, Satanic literature, and bass rich contemporary electronic music. His upcoming album, “Non Paradisi”, is described as “a loose musical adaptation of John Milton’s epic poem “Paradise Lost,” concerning Lucifer’s fall from Heaven and ensuing ascent from the Lake of Fire”. At the end of the month Gost will launch an international tour in the United State and Europe, with shows already selling out. I’ve had the pleasure to talk to the man behind this infernal project and discuss some of his influences, Satanism & the Church of Satan, horror films and the throw-back horror trend, Stranger Things, his new album, and his brand new music video, all from a Satanic perspective. Enjoy!
