Imagine a musician is trapped in ice since 1986 and wakes up in a modern-day recording studio unaware that sound fonts have changed, and you get The Synth Lord.
The Synth Lord is the newest musical venture by internationally-renowned record producer/musician, Juan “Punchy” Gonzalez. Performing all the instruments, vocals, and producing/engineering the recording, Punchy draws from his earlier musical ventures like Diet of Worms, Cosmic Punch, and Lover of Sin in this “retro/modern synth”-style project bringing all the elements that are “familiar” with a heavy dose of new. Going beyond the same used and typical sounds as most Synthwave and Retrowave, Synth Lord brings synthesizers, drums, guitars and lots of layered vocals to deliver a sound that is familiar, yet fresh by comparison. With songs that are catchy but maintain an edge to them, Synth Lord will remind everyone why they liked 80s style synth music again and keep them wanting more for the future.
“The Synth as Soul” is designed to be your favorite record and The Synth Lord demands compliance!
