Street Cleaner EDGE

After just recently getting his own video game, Street Cleaner just released the killer new album “EDGE” – and it absolutely SLAPS!

This is a truly hellacious mix of darksynth, cyberpunk, outrun, and industrial. Together these various influences create a fantastic update to the Street Cleaner’s sound, making “EDGE” one of his best albums to date. “EDGE” really is a total banger, filled to the boiling brim with futuristic sci-fi viciousness.

There’s also the Street Cleaner narrative that’s constantly playing the background, telling a story of the hyper-violent vigilante fighting against crime.

“I Know This to Be True:
Crime will not stop, It will take on many forms, It will evolve to always be cutting edge. But That doesn’t matter. Someone will still be there to smash it back into submission. Be it 1880, 1980, or 2080, it makes no difference. There will always be a Street Cleaner, the Legacy System.”

The intensity of the music works perfectly with this narrative, as even without the album art, or the video game, it’s easy to imagine giant mechas locked in eternally explosive combat when you listen to these tracks. Street Cleaner has included some radical guitar work on “EDGE,” which folds seamlessly together with the synth without much kitsch.

What really makes the package complete are the many additional artists featured on “EDGE.” Awesome album art from Daniel Eichinger, features from video game sound designer Aubrey Hodges and guitarist Jake Hellend, additional art from Ian Cowell, and other we’re probably missing – merge to create the astounding package that is “EDGE.”

Grab a listen here now – just make sure you don’t cut yourself on all that EDGE!
