Available now: Decoded Feedback - "Aftermath"

Decoded Feedback

Decoded
            Feedback

We stand in awe of their unmistakable combination of pulsating basslines and angelic synth-melodies (“Silent Killer“, “Proteus Syndrome“) and nostalgic glimpses to the old school Dark Wave of the Eighties (“Dark Reflections“, “Shelter Me”), as well as Electropop (“Affliction”). Full-bodied and varied, “Aftermath” stands between feelings and moods with unexpected sonic landscapes. Never before could it be said that Decoded Feedback has been this melodically oriented as we can now in 2010. Even in this project's 17th year of existence, there is no lack of innovation or variation.

“Aftermath” strikes with a brutal force within the electronic scene ...The album is destined for the darker clubs ... Marco and Yone combines harmonic sequences and heavy basslines very good to create that pounding and very energetic sound. “Aftermath” is rough, offers great production and proves that the band still is to count with."
- blackvector.se

"The songs are well-danceable and melodically oriented. Not only the album is marked by the typical pushing industrial and electro sounds with its distinctive bass lines and Synth melodies but also you find reminiscences of good old 80s electro wave ... pushing harmonic synthesizer sounds, completed with pleasing vocals. Recommended!"

Decoded Feedback – Make up your own mind!

Decoded Feedback

Decoded Feedback

 Extended sneak preview snippets of all tracks of the upcoming, mid-May Decoded Feedback album “Aftermath” are available now. Here you can make up your own mind on the long anticipated, new material by DF.

Half a decade after the release of “Combustion”, DF now presents its 8th full-length album “Aftermath”. It shows impressively that the Canadian duo, now in its 17th year, hasn't lost its variety and innovation. They still go to show how intensive, rich and exciting Electronic-, Dark Industrial can be in the year 2010.

Front Line Assembly – New single and new album!

Front Line Assembly At the end of May, Front Line Assembly will release the single „Shifting Through The Lens“, which will be a powerful forerunner for the upcoming album „Improvised Electronic Device“ to be unveiled this summer. Canadian Electro-geek Greg Reely (Nettwerk) and Skinny Puppy's sound engineer Ken „Hi Watt“ Marshall will be in charge of production for both. As was the case with their last album, it will also feature several guest singers, including Alan Jourgensen from Ministry author of the lyrics and mixing compositions on the song „Stupidity“. Our curiosity is killing us, but one thing is clear: The Canadian electronic legends have unleashed a storm and this one is going to be huge, really huge.

New Decoded Feedback album on Dependent!

Decoded Feedback Half a decade after the release of “Combustion”, the Canadian duo Decoded Feedback will proudly present their eighth album “Aftermath” towards the middle of may. Despite being in the 17th year of this project's existence, there is no lack of innovation or variation. This particular album boasts a strong mix, combining their typical blend of pulsing baselines and angelic synthetic melodies (“Silent Killer”, “Proteus Syndrome”) with nostalgic glimpses to the old school Dark Wave of the eighties (“Dark Reflections”, “Shelter Me”). After working on it for five years, Decoded Feedback have created a full-bodied album with superlative engineering. It is much more than just an “Aftermath”.

Edge of Dawn - Anything That Gets You Through The Night

Edge of Dawn

Edge of Dawn - Anything That Gets You Through The Night

Almost everything is fair game if it gets you through the night. A door closes, the room has no windows. It is 3:06 AM. The edge of dawn can be so far at night. “Anything That Gets You Through The Night” will make it possible to overcome such gloom. Reflected in this second opus, we will be exposed to survival under different situations and varying circumstances such as pressure, danger and lust. This album by the Edge Of Dawn duo proposes twelve rich, experimental tracks. The famous guest singer Reagan Jones from IRIS gets the ball rolling with the song “Beyond The Gate” and heralds an album which might in our opinion become one of this year's highlights.

Mind.in.a.box – are everywhere!

mind.in.a.box

They're towering at the top of the GEWC charts and keeping music journalists busy:

“As usual, mind.in.a.box play in their own league and are nearly unrivalled in the electronic music scene. „R.E.T.R.O.“ is another pillar in an incomparable discography.”
-uselinks.de

“A truly extraordinary release from one of the most interesting contemporary electro-formations. A bridge-building from past to modern ages which shows that a good SONG will always work.”
-terrorverlag.de

“I think this release remains faithful to their style while it shows an evolution in song-writing and production skills. Without wishing to compare them to any other band, they're a bit like the Haujobb of the 21st century.”
-side-line.com

“Time to breathe again for the many MIAB-fans. Despite a new concept and the year 2010, it still sounds like MIAB. “R.E.T.R.O.” will therefore increase the audience of this extraordinary band, not diminish it.”
-Sonic Seducer


We would also like to share with you a video clip of the song “8 Bits”, which sheds an unusual light on mind.in.a.box's passion for video game sounds (at least in the eyes of dark romanticists). The clip can be viewed

System Syn - next European release by Dependent.

System SynSpending the past several years bubbling just under the radar in the electronic music scene, their efforts were overshadowed by bigger names in the genre, especially in Europe.
Now all of that is about to change with their newest album for 2010. Strangers is System Syn’s crowning achievement, which will not be ignored! Musically, the song structures are impeccable. Sad, slow and mid-tempo tracks give way to angry and harder dance floor crashers, and as if the electronic sequences weren’t enough, live guitars and acoustic drums are sprinkled throughout the album.

Much of Strangers revolves around relationships, and for each listener the songs will hold an entirely different meaning. Words cannot begin to describe Strangers, its an album that has to be experienced first hand


The Album "Strangers" will be released in Europe on April 30th.
