Russia-based Retouch is back with a stellar new release, “Light Years.” This fast paced, rock influenced album bleeds retro intensity – the perfect release to play when need to get your blood pumping.
“Light Years” clearly takes some influence here from the likes of Dance With The Dead and Perturbator, but this album feels more cyber and less grimy and dark than their releases. The up-tempo tracks on this album would fit perfectly as a bullet hell maniac shooter style retro game soundtrack.
Top tracks: “Suspiria,” “Earthquake,” “Momentum” and “Hazard Rider.” The slowest track, “Alighting” is an almost ambient interlude that works surprisingly well, given the rest of the album is so fast paced.
