Institution D.O.L. * 17 Shameless Years (cd 2015)
The title suggests that this album is a look back at a 17 year career. In a way it is, but in another way it is not.
“17 Shameless Years” contains old and new material, but all old material has been reworked into the ‘new sound’. The music became a dark piece of industrial, wall-of-sound power electronics with lots of vocals and samples. Institution D.O.L. already were pretty loud, but the new sound might please lovers of death industrial perhaps more than people who like the noise of the old days. But, like before, there are also more ambient tunes and more ‘industrial disco’ type tracks to be found on this album and one track could just as well have been of Control.
Perhaps not so much changed afterall. I guess I have to play their previous (2007!) album again some time to compare.
In any case, vicious music with not too many unstructured high frequency noise, a descent dark atmosphere. Yep, a kind of noise I can listen to.
