SKU: ANM001LP Categories: ,


16 tracks of pure synth punk madness. Vertigo is a compilation of synth punk, mainly from little known bands. This first volume features American, German, British and Swedish punk bands. The term synth punk has been popularised in recent years, or rather vulgarised, becoming a genre that mostly describes electronic or new wave bands. This compilation highlights anger and nihilism punk with the violent rhythm of a fingering that assails a keyboard. Here, no synth pop, no new wave, no experimental music. Imagine a Killed By Death compilation led by raw razor shape synthesisers.
