Die Form
In Human – 2004
~reviewed by Jyri Glynn

The French, electronic duo Die Form, is back once again painting harmonious soundscapes that finely interpret the boundary between music, beauty and pain.  Their latest release, In-Human is the first part of a diptych which will be completed by a second follow-up album, Ex-Human.  In-Human is described by the band as a pact between the human and the animal, the agony of the soul, forbidden loves, murderous madness, the spirit of the forest, and the sacrifice of nature.   Éliane’s beautiful and operatic vocals resemble that of Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance) yet with lyrics that clearly illustrate songs of erotica and S&M themes.  The music is primarily that of a modern, electronic, dance persuasion which at times is a just bit too techno for my fancy, but over all this is a very listenable album. The band's imagery within their covers, as with all of their previous releases, is one of the most noteworthy elements.  Displaying artistic images of bondage and sadomasochism, yet presenting them in exceptionally fine taste. In-Human will certainly prove to be a dance club favorite.
