Electric Resistance - S - Boyeustoychvost
Techno, Industrial Electric Resistance is a Russian solo project and this is it's first offering to the world, and I am not too impressed. However, there is always room for improvement, and I only hope they can do so; I find myself enjoying the band's talents and what it does, but I just don't see it being used to the fullest potential.

There are only two original tracks on the album by this artist, which are "S-Boeustoychivost" and "H+". The rest are remixes, and I always hate remix albums as I've stated in the past; they just show off talent of everyone but the original artist.

"S-Boeustoychivost" isn't a bad song, but there really isn't much noteworthy about it. Standard harsh beats surrounded by synths every now and then, with combined elements of everything and anything, along with vocal effects. And, well, that's become the standard anymore, so it feels as if this song is really just bland. Not bad, does get me moving, but it's not enough of an adventure for me. I did enjoy the cover of the song, as it takes a much more metal standing, and incorporates some awesome church chanting.

"H+" was definitely a more techno-ish song, and was faster paced, combined with some metal elements, but once again, I didn't really find myself being swayed too hard by the song. However, this time around, none of the remixes were honestly that good.

So, for a remix album, we find a lot of hit and miss. Most of the songs aren't that great; they're okay, and I'd give them another listen to maybe if I was honestly that bored or I had exhausted the rest of my collection, but as far as I'm concerned, this can really just sit on the shelf for a while and collect dust.

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.
