Bulletride-Actionwear This album is nothing but perfect. I love the militaristic and combat-ready atmosphere it creates and washes away the often too cheesy aspects found in oh so many Synthwave projects. Oh, and on a sidenote: Megahit, do a cover of the G.I. Joe theme song used for the DiC series (Go to get tough - Yo, Joe!) ;) Favorite track: Guns, Bikes, And Neon Lights.
Jetfire Prime

Jetfire Prime Pure 80s action movie awesomeness. Superbly produced with great songs. What more could you want? Favorite track: Arcade Rumble.
El Tato

El Tato This a cracking up-tempo cyberpunk album. Full of belters.

Most of you would have probably heard the track "Terminate" in amongst your cyberpunk playlists. The rest of the album is well worth a listen too. Favorite track: Stealth Mode.

Darkness calls our name out loud Ready to spread out in the night Headlights carry the smell of blood The city shall bow down to the squad Lock and load, ready to rock Rush through the night, throttle up Burning wheels will take us to the top Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts Guns, bikes, and neon lights Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts V8 engines roaring through the nights Settle the score, once and for all Everyone dies where our engines roar No fear, no doubt, no more lies Smoking rage burns in our eyes Lock and load, ready to rock Rush through the night, throttle up A taste of vengeance takes us to the top Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts Guns, bikes, and neon lights Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts V8 engines roaring through the nights Revenge goes fast, all the way You can't run, can't get away No escape, you know that you will pay Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts Guns, bikes, and neon lights Guns, bikes, and neon lights Laser beams inside our hearts V8 engines roaring through the nights

Sunlight Pierce my shades Walking out on the apron Time to meet my mates My boys got the toys With the wicked tex Time to flex, time to Fire up our fighter jets Afterburner glowing bright Prepared for the fight The dogs are out tonight Pass the finesse test No rest for the best Two and a half mach Dressed for success Dash right through the clouds We are sharp dressed men Going out in style And we’re packed full of AMRAAM Faster than the speed of light Prepared for the fight The dogs are out tonight When we ride with the wind You better take a hike ‘Cause we burn on your ass Like a lightning strike Undisputed Yeah it ain’t no lie That these bad boys were Born to rule the sky Into the sunlight hanging tight Prepared for the fight The dogs are out tonight

about

* * *

All right, Private.

This is the second full-length Megahit concept album. It's focusing on the atmosphere of 80s action movies: gunfire, explosions, violence, all with a slight touch of cyberpunk. Intended to be the perfect background music for both exaggerated B-movie action scenes and today's FPS video games, while retaining a great listening experience as a standalone album itself. It is the perfect form of enjoyment for maggots like you!

You will listen to this album. You will buy this album. You will LOVE this album. Heck, you won't be able live without this album. Wherever you go, you will share this album with your squad members. Understood?!
Now gear up and press that damn PLAY button!

DISMISSED!!!
