“Fist, Hit, Cracking Bones” – Neon Insect
New Moscow Underground – A dystopian concept album by NEON INSECT
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.”
