Synth Single Review: "Mater Noctis" by Dark Side of Synth

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


Dark Side of Synth’s Mater Noctis mingles deep emotion with powerful background energy. Sharp-edged, shining synths rise in slowly fading lines, tinged with aching emotion as they drift along. Elevated, drifting synth sings a slow and pained melody out into open space over the broad, swelling synths around it while bass notes fall in below. The broad synths fill the space while the full lead synth flows along above, tender and fragile, glowing as it unfolds in a tragic line.

The main melody shines like misty sun above the flaring synths and the solid bass. The track has a lost feeling as it slips along. Vibrating notes tremble out under the wide synths and the melancholy, slowly unfolding melody that floats quietly along. A nasal, humming synth carries the pained emotion of the melody as rising waves buoy it up above the depths below it. The track is emotive and deeply touching.
