After having garnered much praise in the synth scene through its first web offerings, Volkor X -by means of this first full-length- pushes his way up through the top where the likes of Perturbator, Gost or Carpenter Brut stand.
"This Means War" offers more than 45 minutes of uchronic prophecy, where Sylvain Coudret from Soilwork makes a guest - and explosive - appearance, and where cosmic evil lurks in every corner. This actually means war!

Whether you're more into the more absorbable classic outrun, like Kavinsky and Lazerhawk, or the darker, heavier stuff like Carpenter Brut and Perturbator, Volkor X won't let you down as he covers most sections of the synthwave spectrum, changing pace and switching gears back and forth, without sounding like he's trying too hard. This Means War flows naturally like the honest, unbiased futuristic nightmare children have, right after they begin to suspect the existence of monsters in the world.Among the album's highlights (which are plenty) is the closing 13-minute epic title track, which features Sylvain Coudret, the guitarist from Soilwork.Enter Volkor X's nightmare...Read more @ http://www.destroyexist.com/2016/06/volkor-x-this-means-war.html
