Blueneck's highly anticipated 2016 studio release The Outpost.
 
Blueneck has been at forefront of the European underground experimental scene since forming in 2000 and has  released five critically acclaimed albums, toured extensively with acts like Cult of Luna and Mono and had music featured in a numberof independent films as well as on the NBC, HBO and SyFy channels.  
 
With the band's typically obsessive and fastidious creative approach in evidence, Outpost retains the melodic songcraft of Blueneck's best work, while eschewing the southern-gothic of King Nine in exchange for a maxed-out colour contrast of electronic beats, vibrant vintage synths and guitars that are by turns soaring and delicately intricate. 
 
From the pulsing Archive-esque Prog of From Beyond to the plaintive Sparklehorse meets Boards of Canada electro-pop of Ghosts (Blueneck's most accessible moment to date), and from the windswept Earth-esque Americana of The White Ship to the Talk Talk covering John Carpenter expanse of Hive, Blueneck has created its most passionate, propulsive and progressive recording to date. 
 
Lasse Hoile (Anathema, Porcupine Tree and Opeth) provides the beautiful artwork.
