Synth Single Review: "Subliminal Dark Waves" by Steve Greene

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


Steve Greene’s Subliminal Dark Waves is full of shadowy aggression and power as it moves in a wave of grit, grind and growl. Harsh, computerized sound shift in a stacked pattern as a heavy kick drum thuds.

The angular patterns of sound are carried on a massive flow of bass with a static crackle to it. The whole atmosphere of this track seethes with darkness and creeping danger. A hard-edged pulse of wide open synth sweeps into the track as sharp slices of slowly fading sound move over the insistent and uneven flash of high synth.

The track returns to the sharp, angular movement of notes before breaking into a nervous, tightly wound synth that washes in a minor key pattern through the music. Huge drums batter into the track and a distant howl matches the shifting and terror filled notes over the slicing harshness layered below before the track fades to tomb-like bass.
