Andrew Neilson A triple chase attack of tunes. Favorite track: Vampire Killer.

Matthew Toye 'Maniac' you know and already love. The clip at the beginning of 'The Gate' and how it creeps into those synths is unreal. 'Vampire Killer' has an almost Vincent Price/Castlevania vibe to it. Favorite track: The Gate.
FLESH MECHANIC What is there not to love when it comes to Mega Drive? I still stand by the opinion that he is the best synthwave artist out there and he is the perfect choice for beginners and also for experienced listeners. This EP is a little bit more horror-themed than the rest of his discography but retains the melodic elements Mega Drive is known for. One part from The Gate almost sounds like a soundtrack from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Favorite track: Vampire Killer.

Mungofetch As a lifelong fan of Horror and Science Fiction movies, especially seventies and eighties films, I have always been a big fan of synth music. Mega Drive does it like they own it. Their music is exquisite in every way.

AfroNerd If you want dark gritty dark-synth music, you've come to the right place. Favorite track: The Gate.

kmxexii A short horror-themed EP just in time for Halloween '13. "Maniac" is a great track that moves from slow pace to chase as the song progresses, and first appeared on VHS. "Vampire Killer", a cool spot of dark outrun wrought of cascading synths, used to be exclusive to this EP. Now, you can find it along with "Maniac" on REWIND, the VHS + bonus release, which makes "The Gate" the only exclusive. It's worth it, though, being a horror synth tribute to a fantastic conflict between innocence and evil. Favorite track: The Gate.
