The new Decoded Feedback album is almost finished! "disKonnekt", the upcoming release from electro-industrial masters Decoded Feedback, explores the themes of alienation and existential angst so prevalent in today's society. On their new album, band members Yone Dudas and Marco Biagiotti delve into the complex relationship between man and machine and consider how virtual environments can disconnect us from the real world. DF's trademark aggressive sound and atmospheric melodies remains front and centre on "disKonnekt" and has been further deepened by their recent European tour with Covenant. To be released in early 2012, "disKonnekt" is Decoded Feedback's eighth full length release and includes a collaboration with legendary industrial musician and friend Claus Larsen of Leæther Strip.
Here you can still listen to xl-audio-snippets from the current Decoded Feedback album "Aftermath".
Formed in 2005, the Ottawa-based Canadian trio Encephalon, consisting of Matt Gifford, Sam Mainer and Alis Alias, have kept the electro-industrial underground waiting with bated breath for five long years.
Since stunning the electro world with their 2006 track "Responder“ on Septic VI, the duo have contributed tracks to no less than 7 other compilation, each of which has become an underground hit, their latest offering "Daylight“ being no exception. Encephalon have also contributed the track "Rise“ to the 2009 cyberpunk film "The Gene Generation“, the horror pic "Necromentia“ and also have a guest appearence on the new Fractured album earlier this year.
Time, then, that the Canadians put out a CD of their own, due to hit stores this fall in the form of their debut album. Focusing on themes of isolation, futurism and human evolution, "The Transhuman Condition“ is sure to bring Encephalon’s fantastically dark soundscapes to a wider audience beyond electro insiders, independent filmmakers and scene DJs. This is going to be big!
