Viridian Resonance Electro, Industrial Revolution State Revolution State's 'Viridian Resonance' is quite a tough nut to crack. It's a slow paced industrial machine (part from a track or two) with some nice melodies and soundscapes, sometimes almost ambient like. They mix between a female singer and some harsh male vocals. The female vocals are actually not really sung, there's actually more talking than singing. Further more the talking/singing is really not great either, it's actually pretty bad. But I still have to say I enjoy it. It is almost like the voice of tormented children in a world gone very bad, while the male harsh vocals might be from their tormentor. Somehow everything seems to find its place in the tracks about less promising features of the world we live in. It's a varied experience for me, some tracks I enjoy very much, like "Rooms of My Past" and "Killed For Your Convenience". But some of them I find to slow, to gritty and unbalanced. I would like them to extract the feeling, sounds and quality of the two first tracks and implement them as their general approach to the way they make their music. There's elements in this album I really like, too bad I think they are too few and too far apart. 350
