[album] Hykayat, L’exil accidentel by Hassan K


The long awaited new album from electro-metal-fusion wizard Hassan K is out! Quite a bit darker and more metal oriented than it's predecessor Talab, Hykayat is no less of a masterpiece. Sinister guitar riffs, driven by fast, intricate beats blend in perfectly with freaky solos and absurd electronic breaks. Highly recommended!

Download, stream, and most importantly, buy the vinyl on Darling Dada.

[demo] Futura by RSI

Hello everybody, welcome back to Ancient Wonderworld and a belated Happy 2016!

We start off the year with some new 3D madness in 256 bytes, from the mighty Baudsurfer. 1st place in the Combined 256b compo at SynchroNY.

Btw starting now I'll use the group name RSI for Baudsurfer's prods. So far I have not done so considering the controversy regarding said name. My apologies to everybody who might be offended, but I simply don't care enough.
