SOUNDSHOCK 2 to raise the undead sounds of the Genesis

[Update: It's now available and it's free!]

As a Sega Genesis child, I will forever be enamored by the crunchy sound of FM synth music. The SNES had crystal-clear audio, sure, but it wasn't raw and gritty in the way the Genesis was, ya know?

I'm glad that a bunch of musicians agree, because otherwise, we wouldn't be getting SOUNDSHOCK 2: FM FUNK TERRROR!! A sequel to last year's SOUNDSHOCK: FM FUNK MADDNESS!!, SOUNDSHOCK 2 is a collection of original songs made to evoke those funky jams of yesteryear.

The album is set to premier today during a Noise Channel X Ubiktune listening party that begins at 10 PM Eastern and runs through tomorrow at noon. During that time, you'll be able to tune into Arecibo Radio to sample the album before it becomes available for download. The radio show will only be about one to two hours long, but still, go check it out!

SOUNDSHOCK 2: FM FUNK TERRROR!! to be released on April 5 [Ubiktune]
