They're Here Darksynth, Cyberpunk Thy Behest This review was commissioned. However, it bears no weight on the score or decision. All reviews are written from an unbiased standpoint. I suppose what I’m about to write about Thy Behest is going to be a bit of a repeat since last I met him with his previous single ‘The Hunt’. With that review, I stated that he basically had a good foundation but needed to do something different to stand out from a crowd of an oversaturated genre. And the same can be said for his latest single ‘They’re Here’.  They're Here by Thy BehestThis is a rampant darksynth single with everything you’d expect from a darksynth single; rampant, synth-laden beats, a bassline that moves faster than light, and even a small little guitar solo stuck somewhere towards the end. But, if this was stuck in the middle of a darksynth playlist I’d likely have no clue who wrote it or why as it lacks identity. So, yes, again, a very strong base but nothing built on top as of just yet. I can’t say how he can pull this off, but if projects such as Perturbator and Carpenter Brut were able to do it, so can you. Just don’t be a carbon copy of everything else in the scene.  350

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
