Whether the end of the world is as nigh as some prophets of doom predict or otherwise, there can be little doubt that we currently live in tempestuous times. Art has a tendency to reflect its environment - therefore in the aftermath of the 'Occupy' protests, continued rioting across Europe, the ongoing 'Arab Spring' and the sabre-rattling across the Straits of Hormuz, it should come perhaps as no surprise that Detroit Diesel
have chosen 'Coup d'Etat' as the title of their album.
Within the space of just one year the Canadian harsh-EBM duo's debut album 'Terre Humaine' already established them as one of the key threats to the current leaders of the dark electro scene. For mixing and mastering, this time they turned to Kolja Trelle of Soman
, who brings a rich resonance to the bass end of these club-friendly cuts.
