Album Review

This is the stuff that separates men from boys, girls from women and the musicians from the donkeys! After seven years of absence, with their third album in 15 years, DECREE is back to show to the world not only what Industrial music is, but most importantly what it is to be an artist and a musician. Back to the roots? Ok, back to the roots, but this is not happening as a retro fantasy to pocket some more money and gain some easy-going fans. Industrial and Noise? - let it be, but strict, ruthless and utterly original and without the mentality of the followers.

Their influences are between the early EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN, LAIBACH, SPK, TEST DEPT and CLOCK DVA among many others. And instead of sticking to the rules of the older and even the current flow they are attempting to re-write them by pushing the boundaries of the genre. Much of this is due of course to their front man Chris Peterson (ex DELERIUM and FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY). But as I can guess, on that front he was helped by like-minded musicians who foresaw the stale soundscape of Industrial music way before anyone else could actually see it.

The scale of assault of the ‘Finite Years’ is just superb. And it is accompanied by 8 more, equally or even more aggressive yet so compelling tracks. Which one to pick? ‘The Prey’? ‘Bloodthirst’? The amazing ‘Faded Glory’? There is something very clever about their music, something that forces you to listen even closer. It has to do with the origins of Industrial, a genre originally inspired by the Dadaists, A. Artaud and the Surrealists. The specific album is at the same time a manifesto, not only about music but about society itself. Above all, it is an absolute necessary experience, a vital experiment.  It is not an album that will allow you to play the Lycra posing game in your club of preference.

Guys, I salute you...
