Italy-based computer- and metal enthusiast Victor Love is the brain behind Mater Boot Record. The project premiered two years ago with an album called ‘Floppy Disc Overdrive’ and the sophomore release is now ready for a launch. ‘Personal Computer’ is the iconic and unusual title of the second effort and Master Boot Record picks it up where the project left off with the debut.
Ten new instrumentals found a spot on the album, music that reflects a blend of many influences. Classic and neo-classic elements are part of the Master Boot Record sound as well as furious riff attacks and synth-driven soundscapes. The blend is a very interesting musical experience for listeners. It feels like listening to a movie soundtrack and closing the yes while diving into this musical experience allow fans to create their own clip.
The vibes of this release cover a wider perspective. There are dystopian moments, space synth-escalations and aggressive guitars, all going hand in hand. Since each of the ten songs has also catchy hooks and a well-forged melody embedded, none of the tracks gets lengthy or boring. ‘Personal Computer’ unfolds right away and catches listers attention. Still, there are plenty of details and twists making this longplayer to a long-lasting delight for music fans.
‘Personal Computer’ merges the heartbeat of rock’n’roll and the coldhearted digital world. This is the general and overarching mood of the album, a journey through sounds and time. Cool stuff.
