Another evening, another album spotlight and this particular one is a grand adventure that could only be told by a great interaction. I remember when I was developing J360 Jams#3 and I wanted to bring Dark Synthwave to the forefront. Upon listening to various artists I found this particular individual through his track called “Transmission” and another single called “Dead or Alive” which made me an instant fan. Eventually I met with the one called Magnavolt and considered him a brother every since.
From this artist’s motive and style, some people ask is he a hero or a villain?
I will answer that from his rhythms with the synth all the way to his mashups of Trap and Dubstep beats and bass, Magnavolt is a legend.
I figured that Ep#3 wouldn’t be enough of a presentation for him and luckily the J360 Monster Fest 2020 was around the corner. So I held off until Jams#8 because that would be the right debut for Magnavolt and around the same time his album “I am Vengeance” was being released.
I am Vengeance is a 15-track album that lives up to every term expressed within it.
The impact of Magnavolt’s sounds as he lands into our world gives the vibe of a otherworldly presence on a massive scale. You could tell from every composition that each song is the perfect mash up of different events taking place leading to a massive conclusion. Each track gets into your system and jolts it to a point where you’re never left unsatisfied. The music, the wave, and the vibe from this album is well worth the price tag along with being highly recommended in the J360 library. You don’t have to just be a fan of dark synth to enjoy it at all, you just need to unleash your darkest ambitions and allow yourself to experience the vibes.
I’m eager to see what else happens with the Magnavolt Legend, and fortunately we the fans won’t have to wait long as his next album: “NEXUS” will be released on December 18, 2020.
