The highly anticipated follow-up to Scandroid’s first two albums is here! “The Darkness” is Scandroid like you’ve never heard him before, as the artist unleashes his dark side across six brand new tracks. Never content to rest on what he’s already accomplished, Klayton, the mastermind behind the project, has driven his music into uncharted territory on The Darkness and given every song its own distinctive identity. From the old school heavy metal riffs of ‘Phoenix’ to the ominous cybersynth tone of ‘Red Planet’ and ‘Out of the Darkness,’ each entry will pull you deeper into Scandroid’s darkly cybernetic world.

In addition to the six original tracks, Scandroid has packed The Darkness with electrifying remixes from some of the most talented and innovative artists in and around synthwave today. Even better, this new release is just the start of Scandroid’s latest creative opus, The Darkness and The Light. Fans will be able to immerse themselves in the second half, The Light, in 2019, with a complete full-length release to follow.

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust will release a new single ‘Phoenix’ on Sept. 18th.

Scandroid’s signature style collides with old school metal on “Phoenix,” a blazing piece of guitar-driven music that rocks the foundation of the artist’s discography. This is Scandroid through and through, but not like you’ve heard him before, as crunchy riffs and soaring guitar solos deliver a high-octane listening experience. With its blend of ‘80s heavy metal and cyberpunk-infused synthwave, “Phoenix” is one more example of Scandroid’s versatile songwriting ability. Continue reading »
