Glitch Black pulling off god-tier darksynth majesty of epic proportions. The scope of this record alone will send shivers down your spine. Strap in for an Earth-rattling banger.
Favorite track: Vortex.
Emergent Behavior is nothing less than a distillation and refinement of all the best things about Glitch Black's past work, showcasing the full range of his musical talents. Here you'll find quite a bit of variety: tracks go dark and foreboding, frenetic and gleeful, unhinged and drowning in that staticky distortion that makes me love his work so much. If you loved any of his older albums -- ANY of them -- buy this one. You will not be disappointed.
Favorite track: Prototype.
Pushing the boundaries of high-energy darksynth, Emergent Behavior is Glitch Black's most ambitious release to date. Strap in for a wild ride through robot uprisings, zombie outbreaks, higher dimensions, and all-around bad attitude.
One of Iron Skullet's Top 10 Synthwave Albums of 2018
"Emergent Behavior is like the soundtrack to an intergalactic takeover orchestrated by cybernetic demons. It plots its course for conquest across 12 diverse tracks packed with industrial effects, hard-driving rhythms, and an impressively brooding atmosphere."
~ Iron Skullet
"Glitch Black, as thunderous as it is, is an electronic eargasm that knows its way around the many parts of a directed-energy weapon AND the dance floor."
~ Reel Reviews
"Emergent Behavior sees the artist positioning himself with the best that dark synthwave has to offer ... I hope you cinched up your seatbelts because this record rarely slows down and is certainly not taking any prisoners."
"Glitch Black manages to tell a narrative clearly and concisely through his music in a way that is more than merely cinematic. You can see the birth of the robot uprising and feel the fall of man ... And more importantly, you can’t wait to experience the sequel."

From interdimensional hyperspace comes an apparition that
tore itself from the frayed fabric of the universe. Clearly this being doesn't belong in this world. He is Glitch Black. And he makes music to keep this dimension from falling apart.

I am a huge fan of cyberpunk, sci-fi, dark futuristic fantasy and it turned out to be the music just for me. It's very powerful and melodic and it got me addicted from the very first song. Anders Kvistr
