Sven Longshanks: Audio Insurgency 88 – AAI 012320

Use of music does not imply endorsement by the musicians of our views, or us of theirs.

Sven Longshanks hosts the 88th episode of your weekly slice of audio extremism (extremely good music), this week concentrating on the classical influences found among the synthwave and black metal artists.

Amalec start with viola trills and strings, building to a crescendo topped with female choirs and eventually more familiar sonic salvoes from the sequencers.

Holon follows with a Pink Floyd style intro laced with burbling synths and funky machine drums, taking you off into inner space and preparing the way for Moongates Guardian’s tinkling pianos and brass build up to their Tolkein inspired black metal.

Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio’s shamanic drums and menacing vocals sound reminiscent of Rome, mixing industrial flavours with neo-folk and then we are back into the synthwave with Traversing the Divide, utilising similar sounds to Hollywood Burns, but getting more experimental with the time signatures.

Cult of Neon hits the eighties button for a retro workout in an Ultravox style before Uriel bring the guitars out again, this time with female chorus and black metal growls to accompany the orchestral instruments.

Blut Adler continues with the strings and ivories for a self composed piano concerto leading us into the wild sounds of the Russian forests and Mondfinsternis’ triumphant brass motifs.

Taking us to the stage from the orchestra pit, Ravenous charge up the guitars and the multi-layered vocals for a power metal crusader romp, contrasting nicely with For Null’s laid-back Gorillaz style offering.

Salrosen close with a Gaelic influenced soundtrack piece, featuring male vocals, keys, ambient sounds and pipes.
