I'm working on a new music album, it's a mixture of 8bit sounds (c64, gb, and more) and some mad electric guitars. Release date is close, so we made a teaser with my friends to promote it. Watch, share, enjoy :)

i'm a big fan of machinae supremacy, we can say they are my idols :)
they inspired me to do sid-metal in my way and of course, they invented this genre :)

I think they were on to something very different & original when they surfaced and they deserve all the credit for both introducing such sonorities in metal (which sometimes tends to be too purist for its own good) and for making ppl interested in getting a Sidstation (and subsequently putting Elektron on the map) ;)

That being said, judging from the snippets you've posted, your project sounds damn cool :) Maybe ppl are not aware, but it's not that easy to mix 8bit chirps with distorted guitars and all...but sure well worth when done right (and you seem to have nailed it) :)

Best of luck ;)

Thank you :)

Do you know what is a musicdisk? An executable software where you could select a track on a nice GUI, like this: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=12258 or this: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=30640
These two production are related to demoscene but I've seen multimedia prods on CD's like these. It was popular to add some extra content to CD"s around the year 2000 :) and now I'm thinking to do a similar thing.
