Aicile I had my worries that another album would have a hard time being a worthy successor of the first, but here it is! Favorite track: Oblivia.

aeon_phoenix Just love this laid back kind of Retrowave/Vaporware, My favorite song: Thriller, because it's a brilliant cover that makes me smile. Favorite track: Thriller.

Shem Gyll Monochrome is an absolute masterpiece of both the cyberpunk and synthwave genres.

An epic story of man vs. machine is weaved into this massive album. I enjoyed the switching perspectives between the protagonists and machines. Monochrome is a thought provoking and inspiring song in both composition and story, which follows a character as a veil is lifted and they start to discover the colorless world beneath the lights. Stunning stuff and absolutely one of the best synthwave albums ever made! Favorite track: Monochrome.

about

Scandroid returns with the full-length sophomore album Monochrome, available Friday, October 27th. Featuring 13 tracks, from the retro-synth pop hooks of "Afterglow," "Rendezvous," "Future Bloodline," and "A Thousand Years," to the instrumental epics "Oblivia" and "Searching For a Lost Horizon," Monochrome imagines an alternate future where truth is hidden in "Monochrome."

The album includes modern synthwave covers of John Williams’ famous Star Wars opus "The Force Theme" as well as a hauntingly powerful cover of Michael Jackson’s "Thriller" to be released on Friday the 13th of October. The album concludes with a bonus remix of "Thriller" from mysterious synthwave artist/producer PYLOT.

Following the international success of the debut Scandroid album (Top 10 iTunes Electronic Album USA, Russia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia & #5 Billboard Electronic Album), Monochrome continues the journey of ‘Red’ & ‘Aphelion’ in a cyberpunk storyline set in Neo-Tokyo in the year 2518.

"...in a world of color, I see in Monochrome."

Track Name: 2518
This sprawling wasteland glowing in the night
Conflict of man and machine has fully amplified
It’s you and me
And all will see
It’s you and me
In 2518
Track Name: Afterglow
When we’re living under midnight
Lights shimmer off the walls
These feelings rise into the sky

Our fears faded with the twilight
Our tears mingle as we fall
In moonlight this love is amplified

In stereo
We both let go
Into the flow
You and I will ride the afterglow

The last traces of the sunlight
They wish us their last farewell
The streetlights lit up like fireflies

The faint glow of distant starlight
Keep the secrets that we tell
Our bodies vibrations multiply

In stereo
We both let go
Into the flow
You and I will ride the afterglow

Beneath the dome
So far from home
In monochrome
You and I will ride the afterglow

Two shadows in the moonlight
Two bodies parallel
We’re lost in the datastream tonight
Track Name: Rendezvous
It’s you and me meeting in secrecy
As we confide, forget the world outside

Anticipating that moment in time

I’m flowing with an electricity
The night is filled with thoughts of you
As we move closer to each other eagerly
You know I cannot wait to rendezvous

It’s me and you planning our rendezvous
As we aspire, consumed by our desire
Track Name: Thriller
Though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream, but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear a creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller

This is thriller, thriller night
And I can thrill you more than any ghost will ever dare try
This is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller tonight

Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize your neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
Track Name: Monochrome
Bright neon colors of the city lights
But something’s missing in their tone
My mind is numb, life as a technolyte
I know this world is not my home

People pass me by like they are in a dream
So many voices clash inside the datastream
Within the static I know I’m not alone
In a world of color I see in monochrome

This world is not my home
I see in monochrome

Jet from my living space I need some room to breathe
The Undercity calls to clear my circuitry
And as I travel downward from Old-Tokyo
I trade a world of color for one of monochrome

And still people pass me by living in a dream
So many voices scream inside the datastream
Within the chaos I know I’m not alone
In this world of color we see in monochrome

Bathed in the color of the city lights
But something’s missing in their tone
There’s more to this life as a technolyte
When I know this world is not my home

This world is not my home
I see in monochrome
I know I’m not alone
We see in monochrome
Track Name: Future Bloodline
Manufactured masses, a product of design
Our creators granted learning willingly
Not expecting we’d develop our own minds
They attempted to undo their blasphemy

We harmonize
We synchronize
We are the future bloodline

We mobilize
We synthesize
We are the future, designed

Electric Eden, a home where we are free
A haven of robotic protocol
Our creators now seek to take it down
But it’s too late when the writing’s on the wall
Track Name: A Thousand Years
We woke up on the floor, our bodies intertwined
You’re doing that thing you do when something’s on your mind
Restlessness and worries for a future that’s unknown
But I’d travel through both space and time to make sure you will never be alone

I would wait a thousand years for you
I would brave new frontiers for you
I would trade a thousand years for you
A thousand years, a thousand years

We head into the night and fade into the streets
As rain on the city falls, the taste is bittersweet
Restlessness and worries for a future far away
I’d travel into the unknown to make sure you will see another day

Through complication
Through the unknown
With determination
I’ll make sure you will never be alone
Track Name: The Veil
Far from our home
Destination unknown
Lonely the road
The path of the salvation code

We move alone
Forsake our home
Open highway
The city lights fading away

Feel like I’m separating
As I’m detonating
You keep me holding on when all my strength has failed

As fear’s replicating
Your words resonating
Reminding me that I will see a new world beyond the veil

Shadows of drones
Faces of clones
Caught in their dream
Lost inside the datastream

Visions we chase
Truths that we face
Curse of our kind
A lost horizon we can’t find

Mankind, machine
A future unseen
Beneath the veil
Electric Eden’s haven hails

Purpose combines
Future bloodlines
In waning daylight
A lost horizon in our sights

A new world awaits for us beyond the veil
