I had not listened to Decoded Feedback prior to this release. I learned of their music when I downloaded the song 'Another Loss' on the Dependence 2012 compilation. The compilation has some great music and this is one of the best songs on it.
I checked out some of the other songs from their latest release, 'Diskonnekt' online and decided to pull the trigger and download the entire release. I'm glad I did, this is one of my current favorites. One of the things I really like about the band is how Marco Biagiotti, the vocalist, sings differently on some of the songs. When I first heard 'Another Loss', I thought there were 2 singers in the band, trading off on vocals. But it's just Marco Biagiotti. And that technique extends to other songs on 'Diskonnekt'. He also varies his style across 'Diskonnekt' with a variety of aggressive and deep, almost goth like vocals. It's something that's missing from a lot of industral bands where there is already a very heavy reliance on vocal effects, which after a while all sound the same. That was cool back in the 1980's and early 90s when the scene was limited in scale and a new genre. But what must be close to 30 years later (depending on when you believe what some of us still just refer to as industrial started) there should be a little more variety. That's not to say there are no vocal affects used my Marco (i.e. distortion used on 'Mescaline', etc), but it's not overly distorted and manipulated to the point you can't distinquish him from other artists.
My favorites are 'Another Loss', 'Night Terror', 'Heart of Stone', 'Dark Odyssey' and 'Mescaline', but I listen to this entire release pretty much straight through at least daily right now. The music is great, not too much head pounding or dirgy songs, a good mix of tempos and angst.
Regarding the 3 star reviewer's comments that the samples in the song 'Slaughter' were sampled from Revolting Cocks, well, you are wrong. It's sampled from a movie called 'Deliverance' during an infamous male on male rape scene. I'm not sure how most people familiar with that sample could not know that by now. Given that Decoded Feedback didn't use the sample to take another shot at rednecks, I think they can take the creative liberty to use the same sample differently. And they have. And as far as I can tell, it's one of few movie samples on the entire release. That combined with what Marco does vocally, I completely disagree that this is more run of the mill stuff.
