Decoded Feedback is a Canadian musical project which incorporates styles of electro-industrial and aggrotech. The duo currently[when?] releases music on the North American distributor Metropolis Records, and the European record label Out of Line.

History[edit]

Decoded Feedback was formed in 1993 by the Italian Marco Biagiotti and the Hungarian Yone Dudas (both live in Canada). After the release of their Decoded Feedback demo tape and a subsequent review by the Belgian industrial music magazine Sideline, they wre signed to the European label, Hard Records, which released their first full-length CD, Overdosing, and gained the attention of another European record label, Zoth Ommog. The latter released Decoded Feedback's second disc, Technophoby, in 1997. This attracted the attention of the American industrial music distributors Metropolis Records, who released domestic versions of all subsequent Decoded Feedback releases. Bio-Vital, released in 1998, was the first Decoded Feedback album to enter the German Alternative Charts (DAC). In the same year, they released a second album with new tracks and remixes called Evolution.

In 2000, Biagiotti and Dudas signed to the record label Bloodline to release Mechanical Horizon, which was preceded by the first ever Decoded Feedback single, "Reflect in Silence". Three years later, Decoded Feedback switched to their current record label, Out of Line, and released Shockwave, which again was preceded by a single, "Phoenix". In 2005, they released Combustion as well as the soundtrack for the Cindy Murdoch's short zombie film, Red Men Rising. Aftermath was released in 2010 and disKonnekt in 2012.

Live[edit]

Decoded Feedback have played several live shows in Europe. The band spent the greater part of 2001 touring with Noisex and Sonar and again in 2003 with Haujobb. They have played the M'era Luna Festival, the Blacksun Festival in the USA, Infest 2005, and the Out of Line Festival, as well as touring with fellow Metropolis Records bands God Module and Blutengel. In Toronto, Canada, at the EBM Fest 2008, they played as a DJ set because the singer was not present.

Philosophy and style[edit]

Biagiotti and Dudas originally experimented with the fusion of punk and electro, but over time developed a more cold, industrial-oriented sound. By the time Evolution was released, they had attempted to create a blend of industrial and electronic body music, with "interwoven dance floor textures and symphonic melodies". [1] This sound culminated with Mechanical Horizon, but turned sharply with Shockwave, an album that was seen as something of a return to an older style. [2] Combustion continued this trend.

Both members have also cited the tensions that exist between sexes and international boundaries, as well as their unique backgrounds, as a driving force behind their music - especially in an attempt to create their own unique style. [3] Decoded Feedback's music is popular within the darker electronic music scene, especially among fans of electro-industrial music. Comparable artists include fellow Metropolis Records acts Haujobb, Wumpscut, Suicide Commando and Front Line Assembly, as well as Zoth Ommog acts X Marks the Pedwalk and Evil's Toy.
