Icon Of Coil - Serenity Is The Devil

Serenity Is The Devil, lead by Andy LaPlegua, who also does the electronic industrial acts Combichrist and Scandy, is a futurepop album with an aggressive edge. In IOC's debut full-length album, you will experience electronic dance music in its purist form. Andy does a great job creating a dancey type of music, and it is evident in almost all of the songs. Fiction, Shallow Nation, Floorkiller... All of them deliver the dance music you're looking for. But we can also hear the more delicate, introspective sounds of the group in the song Situations Like These. This was a landmark album in the futurepop genre, and perhaps one of the best out there. Highly recommended.
