Master Boot Record is an electronic metal project composed entirely with synthesized instruments processing avant-garde chiptune, synthesized heavy metal and classical symphonic music. And just like his previous albums, “C:\>COPY *.* A: /V” is the kind of album that will most likely appeal more to metalheads rather than purely Electronic music fans as it captures the essence of Metal attitude through its compositions and concept. Master Boot Record composes Metal music which is performed on Synthesizers, as opposed to trying force Electronic music compositions to sound more Metal by adding elements such as screamo vocals or distorted guitars like many other Electronic music (mainly Dubstep) artists who want to go down a more Metal route do for example. Of course Chiptune and Synthwave music fans have already been familiarised with a more Metal sound through artists like Gost or Volkor X and of course Carpenter Brut or Perturbator who have in the past gone down a more Metal path and have contributed to closing the gap between the two worlds and sounds (whether with their music or in some cases marketing that is). Yet Master Boot Record isn’t doing Synthwave music but Metal with enough 80’s Electronic music influences that make his music sound reminiscent of Synthwave at parts. I could literally keep going forever and continue pointing out reasons and differences that set artists like Master Boot Record, Gor FLsh or the completely under the radar Going To Hell In A Leather Jacket (who even though never got his music officially released deserves a mention here for being one of the first artists to blend 80’s influenced Electronic music and Metal – in a very similar way as Master Boot Record does) in a league of their own and so far apart that the others. But I won’t bore you any longer with more rambling about Metal, Electronic music, Metal and just let you enjoy Master Boot Record‘s new album. Because to put it as simple as I can, “C:\>COPY *.* A: /V” is kicking ass and taking names!
