Synth Single Review: "Böotes Void" by Mystryl

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing.


Mystryl’s Böotes Void seethes with shadowy energy and rumbles with portentous power. The track opens as bass of galactic proportions swirls and flows over a steadily ticking metallic beat. Full, digital-sounding synth moves in wide notes that have a threatening quality to them as orchestral arpeggios whirl in the background, adding more worry and tension.

Under it all, the drums keep pulsating and huge bass blocks shift as the unrelenting arpeggios spin endlessly to add texture. Sweeping synths expand as the round, digital-sounding synth flares. Now tumbling bass falls in oscillating lines as brooding, but majestic synths thunder out ominously.

Flaring sounds undulate and gigantic bass flows on before hollow, howling synth cries out in an open sounding line. The dramatic tension rises even further, while the urgent arpeggios spin on and on over the guiding drums and thunderous bass. The track heaves with dark power and fades.
