In general, I am skeptical when it comes to new music, not sure why, just always been that way. So it was with a skeptic's ear that I loaded up “Obsessions of a False Idol”, the debut album from Florida based Rock-Industrial artists Deconbrio, into my Ipod. After several listens, I can say that I was not sorry.

I could really see this song on a soundtrack for a movie like Underworld or The Matrix.

As the first track, The Amalgamation, began playing it struck me that I could really see this song on a soundtrack for a movie like Underworld or The Matrix. It is moody, gritty and ominous, right up my alley really. This is a tone that carries throughout the album, setting a nice pace that keeps your finger off the “next” button. And this is a good thing to have in this day of instant gratification. To see it in new artists is satisfying in a way that makes me look forward to the next release.
“Obsessions” is an interesting and delightful mix of genres in a sweet, sweet Industrial coating. Splicing in bits of Goth, Rock, EBM, Powernoise, little bits of Classical, Metal and just a touch of New Wave, the songs hold your interest and dare I say make you want to bang your head? Yes, yes I do. The blend of styles is never out of place here as Deconbrio has apparently mastered the ancient art of actually caring about the music they produce, lovingly coaxing out the dark tunes with sweets and shiny razors.

The vocals are the proper amount of tortured and angst without ever going over into kitsch.

The vocals are the proper amount of tortured and angst without ever going over into kitsch, which was a big reason why I liked this. Too many singers nowadays think that whining through your nose is either sexy or desirable, and this album does not suffer that disease. The use of distorted vocals in some tracks (The Deceiver comes to mind), adds to that Underworld-y feel I mentioned before. In fact, at one point, I muted the sound while I was playing Castlevania, so that I could listen to this instead. It just fit.
There is no reason not to get a copy of “Obsessions Of A False Idol”, it is a good solid Rock-Industrial offering, featuring the lovely MeaganFilth and more over it is totally bloody free! So go download it, and be sure you tune into DN Radio to hear their intro theme and other songs. Go On Dammit!
