Sleep City - Uslovnaya Realnost
Goth Coming as a free download from Synth-Me (If you haven't known, there's a shit ton of free releases on their website, so go grab a few and support the artists) is Russian goth rock under the name of Sleep City. When I attempted to find them on the web, I really just couldn't find anything more than a few sites that offered the free download more often, and I found another band of the same name that was located in the United States. However, I couldn't find anything on them in general; whether this is bad exporation on the my part or just an actual case of information not being leaked will soon shine through.

However, Sleep City's mainly goth rock project tends to dip into synths a lot. But this is no reason to spit all over them; the album is really good. I've been listening to it for the past while and allowing the sounds to bless my ears. the gothic style sweetly embraces the darker elements, with melodies completely swarming you in a gentle charm.

The description that Synth-Me puts out says, "Do not be afraid of Russian lyrics," and I have to agree with that statement. The vocals flow freely from the mouth of the singer, and although the digital enhancements to the singing tune does get quite tiresome for me, they're still soothing nonetheless.

Everything on this album is very relaxing. Even when the guitars come in, they are brought down a notch simply by the storm calming synths that are always there to accompany them. It's a great release in my own opinion, and I would love to see more from Sleep City.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
