Moscow Underground – A dystopian concept album by NEON
It’s the 26th year, after the New Russian Empire put
an end to World War III, when nuclear bombs rained down on North
America, burning down the biggest cities in the west and the south.
It's the 26th year after the Imperial forces raised their flags, took
away the identity and hopes of a free country, and forced Orwell’s
nightmare upon the last survivors.
Now, we’re living in New
Moscow; a city guarded by cyborgs and fanatics who believe Stalin is
still alive and kicking. Many of us have been exiled to Old Manhattan
where we are left to fight for space and food. Even worse is that our
children have been taken away to be raised as the workforce to produce
cruel war machines.
“New Moscow Underground” is a story
told through songwriting (“Dear Cyborg”), edgy industrial tracks
(“This Is Our City,” “h4CX”), and also calm and
thought-provoking songs (“Mazerunner,” “Blossom”). If you
allow it, the mixture of brutal and aggressive tracks with sad, yet
hopeful pieces will create a soundtrack that transports you into the
world as a cyborg or a rebel yourself, thus pulling your mind directly
into the action of New Moscow.
"…a fantastic and
powerful romp through electro-industrial, IDM, ambient, and cinematic
sounds. It's harsh, it's calming, it's panicked, it's destructive, but
most of all it is easily one of the better listening experiences I've
had this month."
– Brutal Resonance
"(Glitches) shows both
his ability to create atmospheric soundscapes with stomping dance
beats, as well as, appropriately, glitch-inspired tracks. Musically,
there is a lot going on in these songs – lots of quality synth
sounds, interesting percussion, and excellent accents without ever
becoming too much or becoming cluttered."
