Lazer Station - Missions
Synthwave Lazer Station is a project that should pride itself on being able to capture someone just from their cover art. While it is really nothing special, the ambiguity of a floating astronaut in the midst of God-knows-what brings about that fear of the unknown. The overall concept of the project is a dark vessel floating in the cosmos without rhyme or reason, without origin, but it does transmit sounds. And those sounds are referred to as Lazer Station. 

Now, "Missions" is their most recent release, but it is not new in any sense. This is rather a collector's item combining their three EPs "Chaos of Hyperion", "Destination", and "Exit" in one fancy collector's edition which is to die for. The three EPs come combined onto one CD for a continuous stream of science fiction electronics and fun with artwork for the combination album and the three albums presented on the inside slipcover. Both the record label Civitas Mortis and Lazer Station themselves went an extra mile to include three different posters with the CD featuring blown up cover art for each of the EPs. 

As stated earlier, you are not getting any new music but having Lazer Station's music on CD is more than worth the cheap price. Songs such as 'Capricorn' will lead you on a ride through space on this dark vessel while other songs such as 'Sophia's Dream' will take you straight to a technological night club in the far off future, making you move and dance all the while. The twelve songs in one continuous stream on CD are more than enough to justify this purchase; the additional love and care that came with the package are just bonuses. 

"Missions" is currently available in standard CD and the deluxe package via both Lazer Station's own Bandcamp and record label Civitas Mortis' Bandcamp for both international and national shipping. This is not something you want to pass up on.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
