Synth Single Review: "The Bats" by Avatar Xplor

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


Avatar Xplor’s The Bats is a horror movie inspired track that oozes lurking danger and terrified tension. A synth pattern that is full of throbbing energy rhythmically pulses and a swelling wave of rough sound moves along with the wonderful horror movie vocal samples. Heavy drums throb and high, tightly wound synth calls out in a pattern that shivers in fear and exudes a palpable sense of imminent danger.

The drums and bass are full of power as the oscillating, hard-edged bass ripples through and the massive drums pulsate. Again the terrified, tense melody writhes as gigantic drums and threatening bass heave and static crackles. This track screams and shadowy tendrils reach out from it as it unfolds its terrifying tale. The cinematic nature of the music paints a vivid mental picture of vampiric creatures bent on devouring. The track fades on another vocal sample and into silence.
