Ten years into its career, Decoded Feedback is still updating the sounds of vintage 1980s industrial music with attractive, if sometimes predictable results. The jackboot rhythms of pioneering bands like Front 242 and Ministry are in full effect, their weight and depth increased by slightly more advanced sound technology; Marco Biagiotti's voice is a gruff roar; the arrangements are digitally chilly and tend to juxtapose wispy clouds of synthesizer chords against faux metal guitars and bass-heavy beats. The lyrics are intoned more than sung, and they present their own interesting contradictions: "Bondage" implores the listener to "Open the place in your soul...and be vulnerable/Unmask your courage/See and feel love," lines whose sentiments are completely at odds with the dark aggro groove that accompanies them and the angry growl in which they are sung. They are also at odds with the lyrics to "Nothingness," which proclaims that "There is nothing/Outside yourself." But hey, there's nothing wrong with a little lyrical ambiguity, especially in industrial music, which is not normally notable for its subtlety of thought. "Love Will Save You" is a Swans cover, believe it or not, and the CD includes a video to "Phoenix," the album's lead track.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Paul McCartney in 10 Solo Albums

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
