Synthwave (también llamado electro-wave[3][4]​, outrun, retrowave y futuresynth[5]​) es un género de música electrónica influenciado por bandas sonoras de películas, música y videojuegos de los 1980s[6]​ a partir de mediados de la década de los 2000s desarrollado a partir de diversas comunidades en Internet, alcanzando mayor popularidad en la década de los 2010s[7]​ junto al vaporwave.

A causa de la escasa versatilidad de los primeros sintetizadores, el synthwave de finales de los 1970s y principios de los 1980s a menudo utiliza estructuras musicales minimalistas que han sido descritas como minimal wave. Son términos usados en los años 1980s que describen la variante electrónica basada en el sintetizador de New Wave[8]​ y Dark Wave, en contraste a la variante de más guitarra propia de los estilos cold wave y gothic rock.

Otro término usado para la descripción de este estilo fue techno-wave.[9][10]​ En los 1980s, el apelativo "techno" era una abreviatura de "tecnológico", y no describía un género concreto de música de baile electrónico hasta 1987/88.

Consultado el 7 de octubre de 2019. «We worked with him [Coen Janssen] very closely to bring the DragonForce sound and also his style into it. So, it’s still DragonForce keyboarding—you know, the video game sound. We have a bit more of a retro, synthwave [sound] in it as well, along with the big orchestra stuff.» 
  2. «DragonForce - “Extreme Power Metal” Album Review». Penn State Commedia. 4 de octubre de 2019. Consultado el 7 de octubre de 2019. «Marketed as a very ‘80s-themed album, DragonForce combines the styles of synth and outrun with the band’s very own tried-and-true heavy metal sound. As an homage to this style of music, this comes as a surprise to many longtime DragonForce fans, but it’s quite a joy to listen to. With something as popular as synthwave making a resurgence, it's both fun and interesting to see this style reimagined and reinvented for a brand new audience. Metalheads and synthwave listeners can come together in the wake of this new hybrid of music».
