Elay Arson The word 'epic' gets thrown around a lot in reviews of synthwave songs and artists...

Few songs or artists really deserve such an awesome word to describe their music. But Volkor X really does deserve the word 'epic' for each and every song on the album. These songs aren't radio friendly pop hits. They are long, flowing, synth-lead brilliance.

The over 13 minute long masterpiece that is 'This Means War' has to be the most epic of the epic. Simply amazing. Words can't do it justice.

Buy it. Favorite track: This Means War (feat. Sylvain Coudret).

Maximus Klinganite Ragnarok has hit the darksynth scene and some truly monstrous albums have been springing from the depths of the abyss. Nefarious overlord Volkor X's bounty is currently set at 200 million space bucks. His Crime? Dethroning Carpenter Brut by beating him at his own game. As an alien warlord myself, this album was truly a pleasure to listen to. The Amiga and DOS game inspiration mixed with catchy film scoring created the perfect music for conquering the galaxy to. Favorite track: This Means War (feat. Sylvain Coudret).
