Decree – Fateless (2011)

Leading us back to the dark and noisy sound of Godflesh, Decree deliver us “Fateless”, an expression of anger and kind of discomfort. Chris Peterson is probably best known for anyone that is familiar with industrial genre for stepping in to fill the void left in Front Line Assembly and Delerium every time Rhys Fulber leaves to concentrate on some other project and as well, Peterson is known as producer for acts such Noise Unit and Unit 187. But Decree have nothing to do with FLA or Delirium, Peterson with Decree going down on a darker, heavier path, exploring noisy and crushing sounds, mechanical cadence and dissonant layers are flow throughout the songs marked by cutting riffs and raw, filtered vocals. It’s quite unfriendly, but extremely intense. Decree’s first album, “Wake of Devastation” was released in 1996 followed in 2004 by “Moment of Silence” and after a seven year gap, Chris Peterson and Ross Redhead delivers this 9 track album full of contorted, dissonant noises, anger and revolt. Not an easy “bite to swallow”, but fans of Godflash, Ministry will enjoy it fully. Mean, moody and hateful, it will piss off your neighbors. Vancouver mainly, generally speaking Canada is home of many intense and quality industrial acts, Decree is one of them.
