Chris has hinted that this album would have hints of his old Will project, and he’s not wrong. Especially “Arrogance” is a good showcase of this, with that almost tribal feel to it. It’s a simply fantastic track, powerful and relentless. And that little cello is adorable.
The sound is a bit more structured this time around, with a more organic style featuring guitars and drums in addition to the electronics. Songs are often slow, grinding, monotone and immensely effective. Sort of like Ministry’s slower songs.
Coupled with the flawless and simply huge sounding production, this album just begs to be played loud like you just don’t care. This is Decree’s finest hour, so far.
