EDM and heavy techno fans, take note. The noisetastic Body Synths Metal Fetishist percussion synth makes the DFAM its sub.

Love heavy electronic music like EBM? Feel right at home in the basement of Berghain? Always need moar noise? If this sounds like you, then let me introduce you to Metal Fetishist, a new digital percussion synth from Body Synths debuting at Superbooth24.

The name says it all, really. Metal Fetishist is a heavy, noisy percussion synthesizer that would sound right at home in tracks by artists like Blush Response, Skinny Puppy or Einsturzende Neubauten.

Noise-Focused

The first release from Body Synths, Metal Fetishist (God, I love that name) is “unapologetically digital,” according to the press release. However, with its one-knob-per-function layout, it will appeal to those who like to get (ahem) hands-on with their instruments.

The architecture is simple: it has a single oscillator, white noise generator and multimode filter. Don’t let this fool you, though, as there’s aggression to be found in the modulation and distortion sections.

Two randomness generators control the trigger probability and step modulation of the pitch, cutoff or an internal mixer that lets through noise or external audio. These random values can be locked into steps of 2, 4, 8, 10, 16 or 32.

On the distortion side, Metal Fetishist features a digital overdrive and a downsampler, which let “the instrument go from standard monophonic synth sounds to different sonic areas like the harsh, the fuzzy and even the digital aliasing glitches,” says Body Synths.

It’s not a drum machine so you’ll need to sync it to an external Eurorack or CV-equipped sequencer via the patchbay. You can also sync to MIDI clock. There’s an onboard clock divider as well as a manual trigger button. 

I love the sound of the Metal Fetishist in the demo video (below). It’s like the Moog DFAM but much, much harsher. Clearly, this will not appeal to everyone but fans of harsher music should take to it like PVC on actors in a Wachowski movie.

Body Synths Metal Fetishist will sell for €360 and will be available in early June 2024
