SLEETGROUT’s bebut EP " Rotten reverie " have become opening of the year on Russian electro-stage. It is a fair portion of trotyl which will not let you stay still those who has had time to smell gunpowder.
You will not find here songs about a collapse, an apocalypse and nuclear catastrophes. This release is devoted exclusively to the feelings familiar to everything, but they are shown from absolutely unusual side from what the disk becomes even more explosive. It is rigid realism of high feelings, their real embodiment. It is impossible to perceive separately music from the text. Tracks create that sensation when you understand, that all dreams are at all spoiled.
Music is not just Hellish Electro, in it Techno echoes and precise parallels with classics Trance are traced. Finally it is synthesis from smashing beats, the melodies, not deprived originality, and a class harsh-vocal. It is the music, capable to revive practically any dancefloor.
Besides original tracks of SLEETGROUT there are remixes from NURZERY RHYMES (GER), WYNARDTAGE (GER), SYNTHETIC DREAM FOUNDATION (USA), MECHANICAL MOTH (GER), GINGER SNAPS (UA) are presented, etc. Each remix bears on itself a print of individuality of its author, expanding with that a stylistic range of a material elements Dark Electro, IDM, Synth-Goth, EBM and Techno.
Sleetgrout was formed in the end of 2005 and at once actively engaged
in concert activity. The project fruitfully experimented with an alive
guitar sound, and music Stylistically varied from dark wave to falling
in a plane guitar industrial fate with distortion vocal. Gradually
style of the project began to take shape in more electronic style, and
after small change in line-up the project has gone assured step in a
direction of Dark Electro / EBM. These changes could not remain
unnoticed, first of all for organizers of concerts.
Having given some
concerts, the command already confidently divided one stage with
German patriarches of dark wave Das Ich. Acting as second time with
Germans, Bruno Kramm speak rather flatteringly about a command. For
public performance with Terminal Choice became not less remembered.
The concert list has been expanded by participation in one of a large
domestic international gothic style festivals - Radio Inferno. Also
performance on yearly festivals : Synthetic Snow together Red Flag,
Assemblage 23, Clan of Xymox as the stutter of a machine gun has laid
public who after a concert has unanimously named group opening of year
on domestic electro industrial stage.
Working on a stage, the command
did not forget and about the second front, studio, laboriously
sticking above the future debut material. By then the command already
has had time to be lit in the West and has received applications for
remixes from several western executors, among which: Mechanical Moth,
Wynardtage and Sinmasters (electro project of musicians Two Witches
and Lacrimosa). The first demo tracks at ones got in foreign and
domestic compilations: Dark Disco, Extreme Sundenfall 7 (with Hocico,
Nursery Rhymes, ESC, Miss Construction, etc.), Rupal Records - The
remix assault vol 1 (together with Wynardtage, X-Fusion, Davantage,
Robert Dope, Yendri, etc) You will tell, It is the next advertising,
who are they? Do we know them? We will tell you : just listen and you
will understand all. They are just considerable talented guys.
