One of the best albums of 2018 and for good reason.... Great rhythm, distortion, awesome EBM Industrial and synth music. I'm not a big fan of music with the female vocal, but special this band sounds amazing. Some memories Of Front 242 'off' and new generation music INAEONA but with much more electronic effects.....WELL DONE GUYS, worth to buy…..!
Favorite track: Gone.
Dicepeople's last album End Of Line hinted at a new direction for the band, moving on from their electronica roots and into more defined dark electro territory. This transition is fully realised with One From Many, featuring visceral vocals front and centre for the first time within a powerful soundscape of heavy beats, distorted synths, distressed guitars, broken music boxes and ethereal strings. One From Many opens the box to a provocative and otherworldly place, immersing you in your fears and dreams, and exposing you to the darkness and light within.
"An album which, with moments of real magnificence, captivates and excites from beginning to end" - The RingMaster Review
"It’s like opening Pandora’s Box and being taken away to an otherworldly place where fears and dreams come closer" - Peek-A-Boo
"An artist like Dicepeople comes along blending electro, industrial, new wave, and 80s avant-garde, and suddenly we have a record that is synth-based and sounds as fresh as a daisy ... a cut above the majority" - Devolution Magazine
“The perpetual twilight territory is full of shadows and uncertainty ... a dark club space in the deepest basement of an abandoned cathedral” - The Electricity Club
"This is one interesting and unusual album, brimming with cyber-vibes and wonderfully executed" - Chain D.L.K.

Blume reminds me of so many things that there's not enough space to list them all. The music is sort of a hybrid of 90's trance and modern industrial while the vocals are straight up darkwave material (strong Depeche Mode vibes). And the anthemic nature of the songs just adds to the epicness of the whole thing. The choruses are massive, with the Blackening one naturally taking the lead. FLESH MECHANIC
admittedly, I saw the album cover art before I listened and I knew I had to get this album. But after listening, this album gives me such good cyberpunk feels and I'm absolutely blown away by it. I am so impressed with the story that these songs cultivate. azure_orchid
