Remain Silent – Dislocation

Dislocation is Remain Silent’s second disc, his first on the French Axess Code label. The first thing you notice is the beautiful artwork that accompanies the disc. 80’s science fiction is what comes to mind. And in fact this is exactly how it is meant to be. The story behind this cd tells of the age of Dislocation that has come upon earth. Machines have taken over the reign of the world and the little humans that are left are rebuild into plastic caging, thus almost becoming machines themselves.

The music is also a perfect manifestation of this. This basicly is one track of 76 minutes that for the benefit of the listener is split up into 12 different tracks. The music during the tracks changes from ambient to industrial to almost techno back to ambient, and it is able to interest me from the first second to the last second. This is not a disc for the dance-floor, much more for listening at home with headphones on. A lot is happening on this disc to keep the listener in a very attentive mood.

Add to this the influences of Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy and you might understand that this disc is in the group of “must-have-discs” for sure. A record for everyone into industrial music that is not directly aimed at the dance-floor.
