Manhattan-DIY – ∞ – 15 = ∞

 

French dudes Manhattan-DIY came to us earlier this year with an awesome math-rock album with 8-bit and experimental elements.

Their album consist of 6 songs screamed in French, with some exceptions to this rule. Sometimes with nintendo destruction sounds, other times with dirty guitars and a real band. Contemplative parts follow more driving ones, and some others more chaotic to deliver a perfect blend of mathtendocore with emotion.

The ca. 40 minutes album infinity minus fifteen equals infinity is an acquisition you all ought to make.

Go do this on their bandcamp page.

C-Jeff – Preschtale

Coming from Mother Russia is Virgil Donati and Derek Sherinian playing with old video gaming systems.

Chiptune, 8-bit, electronica, progressive, and a heavy dose of groove is what characterizes the artist. Melodies, riffs, solos, ambiances are all absolutely mindblowing.

Seriously, it’s like an 8-bit Planet X record, which says a lot about the talent of Dmitry Zhemkov, who is the one behind most of this!

If you have the slightest appreciation for music, you will absolutely fall in love with this amazing album. And I’m at a lack of words for it. It’s just… perfect!

8-bit metal special!

Do you remember the time when video games had awfully ugly graphics, and music of the worst quality possible, but still providing us with memorable musics; as in Super Mario Bros., Castlevania, Megaman…

Some musicians today want to revive this era, for your musical pleasure.

8 bit melodic instruments backed with programmed drums will probably make you raise an eyebrow. Such quality-crushed instruments with a such good sounding drum is indeed rather bizarre, but given the harshness of 8-bit drums, we can forgive, and gladly accept it.

Kinship Synthesis is full of melodies that would fit like a glove … Read more

Shameless Self-Promotion

In order to celebrate the 100th “like” on our facebook page, as I promised I will brag about my own music, with absolutely no concern about all of you 🙂

First, I am going to talk about my 8bit music.
Why 8bit? you ask : Because it’s easy to make and doesn’t cost a darn thing. Lazy as I am, this is the perfect medium for me!

All of those are FREE, so don’t hesitate on downloading them 😀

Prequel is a bunch of older compositions, not all that good, but some are interesting.
