"Decoded Feedback is one of those groups that your gonna love, with their mid-tempo, with atmospheric strings, stock drums and their deep emotional lyrics. "Technophoby" is their second full length album that blends European and North American electronic/industrial style with a punk attitude, while keeping with their dark background. the songs that stand out are "CORROSION", "NIGHT'S CALLING" AND "PASSION FOR FLESH".

"Sure, they may not be the most ground-breaking band around, but they can crank out a memorable tune or two. Euthenasia is a nice trippy song, and the rest vary from good to ok. Very techno oriented, but still on the industrial side, with dark, heavily voxed lyrics (think FLA/SP)."
When the Demons Come

"Decoded Feedback digs deeply into the pits of forethought, asking many a question that needs to be asked on the wailing woes within the pits of the human experiences. They craft a sonic landscape the wears many shadows to do it, too, harboring many demons within the inner workings of the what their sometimes dark tunes profess. This is something I find highly exhilarating in the realms of electronic music, picking up where the ideologies of some bands have fallen and crafting a legacy of their own out of those tattered remnants. Carved from the depths of sometimes epic tempos, sometimes heavily disturbed EBM melodies where sometimes possesses heavy BPMs and sometimes drift in the simplistic of bare-boned statements, and the distorted overtones of lyrics that have been refined as the band has continued forward, Decoded Feedback has become something of a mainstay in the Metropolis forerunners. Within this album are portions of the reason why they have been considered a powerhouse from the beginning as well, for many of the songs herein are carry-overs from their Overdosing, with additional work as well. Growing a bit after Technophoby, they went down the corridors of Bio-Vital, learning many things in the process on how to carve sounds into a sonic landscape. This subsequently carried them into what I consider their best work, Evolution, and then down some roads that many disapproved of in Mechanical Horizons (but that I personally found good - for the record). While this is one of their earlier works and it isn't as pronounced as their later works, judging it by itself shows exactly how talented the forced involved are. The instrument of quality had already been rubbed across works that would only row better as time pressed onward, and the heavily distorted vocals had hit their highpoints that they would keep steady pace with. The subject matter in the sounds bounces to and fro in many of the works here, from the heavily-sampled, almost saddeningly haunted forms of "Euthanasia" to the eerie chanting beginning to forge the beats within "Night is Calling" before the chilling vocals kick in exclaiming that "night is calling." The tempos move around as well, sometimes sounding like something forged in the depths of a horror movie's shadows and sometimes sounding like the call of some mechanical ghost on a wintereque horizon, adding an effect that some might find a bit chilling in the ways it approaches many a medium and the sometimes poetically shaded lyrics they possess.For people looking for something that carries the seeds of greatness already in it, wishing for an EBM front to soak into their mind and enjoy while finding themselves amazed by the darkness in its forms, then this is something I would suggest. I would also further remind Decoded Feedback fans that there is another album coming in Feb. 2003 as well, and the sounds of everything released for it paint the picture of a work that, like the others before it, will not disappoint."
