Synopsis

Amazon.com
Women in industrial music are a bit like pedestrians in Los Angeles--yeah, you'll find them, but you have to look really hard. Happily, a woman (Yone Dudas) decodes half the feedback in this Italian-Canadian band, and not as a pretty voiced vocalist, either (that's handled by musical partner Marco Biagiotti, who sounds anything but pretty), but rather as a keyboardist, sequencer, and percussionist--traditionally male bastions. Fine, you say, but what about the music? More good news. Decoded Feedback follow up 1997's strong Technophoby with an even stronger disc loaded with clean, energetic beats and inventive keyboard sequences that contrast nicely with Biagiotti's "No, I haven't had a tracheotomy, that's just how I sing" voice. But perhaps the best thing about Bio-Vital is its demure quality; Dudas and Biagiotti clearly know how to use space and pacing to their advantage and never unnecessarily cram a song full of samples or pounding, sludgy beats. In an era when the objective in industrial dance music is to hammer you into submission, Decoded Feedback have made a true listening album. --Steve Landau
 

CD Reviews

Amazing

"I saw Decoded Feedback live when haujobb cancelled, and was completely blown away by them. They had a very simple stage setup, but the atmosphere and music were so beautiful. It was one of the best shows I've ever seen. I ordered this album, and it didn't disappoint. My favorite tracks are Bio-Vital, Machine Kontrol, Again, and of course Breathe. A very beautiful work, remnicent of both EBM and goth music."
Very recommended

"this cd came as quite a suprise for me - Decoded Feedback is definetely one of the best and underated dark electro acts out there today. Heavy dancable throbbing beats,haunting synths, very distorted vocals - pure emotions. Try something new - buy this and you won't regret it"
An electro-industrial masterpiece

"This album captures many of the best elements of industrial and combines them in this very enjoyable album. Bio-Vital was my introduction to Decoded Feedback and almost 3 years later remains my favorite album from them and one of my favorite albums in my collection out of any.

The songs on Bio-Vital are very well put together and have a fun, driving beat and rythm. The vocalist's distorted vocals are somewhat cliche in the industrial genre and many groups use them to cover up the lack of singing ability on part of the vocalist. Not so with Decoded Feedback. Marco Biagiotti can indeed sing and his vocals are used to great effect on this album, helping augment the music and not just fill in. Yone Dudas has great skill in making the songs catchy and fun to listen to.

My favorite tracks on the album are Breathe, Bio-Vital, and God's Sin. There are no really weak tracks on here and I can play this album end to end without hitting the track skip button. If you enjoy the electro-industrial sound then Bio-Vital is a must have."
