If you haven’t caught on yet, I’m a big fan of guitar music. The heavier, the better!
However, sometimes, a song outside my usual tastes gets sent my way… and I’m taken aback by how much I like it. In this case, the song is “I Wanna Be Alive With You” by Louisiana-based industrial bass pioneer, SINthetik Messiah, sent to me by one of my editors here at MendoWerks.
Learn from my mistakes: even if electronic music isn’t your usual jam, let this song be your first taste of the genre.
Because… in a word? It’s ‘epic’.

According to SINthetik Messiah lore, this song is about a ghost watching his lover and yearning to once again be alive with them; furthermore, “I Wanna Be Alive With You” can be considered to be a cross between ‘industrial noise’ and ‘drum ‘n’ bass’… two terms that were… well, entirely foreign to me before I sat down to pen this article, if I’m honest with you.
But I didn’t let that stop me… and neither should you!
