The Questionable Question 2005 ... well time flies it appears.

Anleva is oddly charming and disturbing at the same time. The harshness in the sounds, the juxtaposition of industrial and electronic element, the (occasional) slightly odd sound of the vocals create together quite a trip.

LD's music is rarely ever easy and straightforward, as can be experienced on this release.

Yet, especially this track "Retropolis" leaves a certain kind of impression and fascination. Favorite track: 05 - Life's Decay - Retropolis.

Second album of Life's Decay, 12 tracks, 64 minutes of music High quality prints & artworks. (comes with two different booklets) This album is more accessible then the first album, with french & english female vocals and a "retro" and "militaristic" feeling, influenced by : Industrial, neo-classical, martial neo-folk, darkwave & dark ambient / experimental.
Review : Promising new neo-folk / industrial act Life's Decay incorporate male / female vocals into their esoteric dark electro textures. Sometimes martial in sound and at other times quite melodic and enchanting, the result is divine music for the esoterically industrial. Presented with Deluxe, beautifuly designed graphix.
