Gatekeeper - Optimus Maximus

Every once in a while, I get in a mood where anything 80s, synthy, lo-fi, mid-fi, sci-fi, whatever-fi just sounds really, REALLY cool. Gatekeeper sounds like JUSTICE mixed with a good dose of KAVINSKY and some MR. FANTASTIC. Subtle moments of MR. OIZO also shine through. But while I was listening to this epic "Optimus Maximus," I was thinking, this also sounds a lot like something SALEM would do, provided they were more into that other-worldly stadium-rockesque sound... In any case, just listen, it's really something else.
