[de:ad:cibel] - Globalized
Electro-Industrial, EBM [de:ad:cibel] are the German duo Daniel Galda (The voice and the echoes) and Armin Kuester (The music and the background) and formed around 2010. No doubt the inference of the word decibel springs to mind and from the website, here is an explanation of the meaning behind the bands name.

To get a maximum punchy sound, a dynamic mix aims for the zero level. We have substituted the word "dead" for the cipher zero, which means [de:ad:cibel] signifies very loudly mixed and aggressive music - adequate to describe our sound

Listening to the latest [de:ad:cibel] release 'Globalization', there is no doubt they have achieved the intended goal. Called "The German Bass Machine" by their fans, they don't disappoint in that area. Deep gruff vocals, layered deep basslines and sequenced loops of even more slightly distorted bass give this album an 80's/90's darkwave EBM feel and as stated by the band, the minimal aspect of the arrangement and structure means that you don't miss a sound in the layering.

If you remember the "Brutality of Rhythm" vibe that Nitzer Ebb put across then [de:ad:cibel] are that but darker and harder. With Front 242 styled call and response added to the blips and beeps, rolling basslines, there is a familiarity to what you hear without feeling like you are listening to a band trying to bring back the "glory days". Its new and fresh and I found it an immensely enjoyable album to listen to.

Starting with "Transnational Network" "Globalized" is 13 tracks at 62 minutes, with the standout tracks being "Self Fulfilling Prophecy", "My Whole Life Is An Error Message" and "Beat Plastique". This is the 8th release and second long play for the German band and is an album with a darker than usual vision of the present and the future.

"Globalized" is a great album full of bass, bass, some more bass and big heavy percussion, big vocals and full of meaning without preaching. The tracks make you nod your head, tap your foot and after the first couple listens though gets you singing along with the track.

It's hard not to sing "My whole life is an error message" and not feel that somewhere along the way you thought exactly the same thing. Getting a hold of "Globalized" won't be one of those things. Released November 2013, this [de:ad:cibel] release will be one of the great things you did for yourself this year.
