Comprising former members of underrated Finnish goth rockers Babylon Whoresoverrated Finnish goth rockers HIM 1and a host of other decorated musicians, Sleep of Monsters go beyond the narrow confines inhabited by the aforementioned acts, incorporating all manner of different musical ideas into their remarkably coherent overall sound.
So, what have the dozy beasts dreamt up for their second outing? Luckily for this fan, Poison Garden picks up where debut Produces Reason left off, offering up boutique gothic rock at affordable prices. Actually I dread to think Simon & Garfunkel - El Condor Pasa much Sleep of Monsters must spend on recording and touring given their nine band members.
Anyway, they make the most of this lavish line-up, creating a rich, treacle-thick sound layered with orchestral arrangements, warm synths, twin guitars, and gorgeous vocal harmonies. Poison Garden strays even further from the goth rock template than its predecessor, influenced by alt-rock, film scores, new wave, traditional metal, and D.O.N.S.
Feat. Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam musical theatre. First of these is the production cue my obligatory moan about dynamic range. Though the overall sound is thick and warm, everything is suffocatingly compressed, erasing some of the sparkle this kind of record would benefit from. Secondly, some of Our Dark Mother - Sleep Of Monsters - II: Poison Garden chord progressions and melodies appear quite obviously more than once. This provides continuity but also feels a tiny bit lazy, despite never descending to HIM or Sentenced levels of musical recycling.
This is hardly a big flaw, but some more variation in his delivery could have lifted the music a notch. Sleep of Monsters have delivered another fine album in Poison Garden and have become my go-to band for gratuitously overblown but spectacularly crafted melancholy. Show 2 footnotes.

supported by 6 fans who also own “II: Poison Garden” Definitely not an album i thought i'd get into, but holy moly does it have an interesting ambience. Those musical arrangements produce a very intense contrast between voice and instruments, but most importantly, they also bring sensitivity in waves, like a stream of pure feelings washing.

May 28, · Other than this track, Sleep of Monsters tend to opt for a slower pace that suits their dense arrangements and works well both on more brooding songs like “Beyond the Fields We Know” or “Our Dark Mother,” and on the more epic “Poison King,” “Golden Bough” and “Land of Nod.”.
