Album 11 is a fact! Announced by the surprising “Phantom Pain” (digital) EP and video clip, cult Belgian electro act IMPLANT is back in full force and signs with “Cognitive Dissonance” not only their most personal album to date but also the most diverse in sound and the most electro pop oriented to date.
Next to an obvious strong focus on song production where every tiny detail makes the difference, the overall catchiness of this album embodies its essence and operates as a red light from start to finish, plunging us into a melodic bath of catchy synth lines, poignant sing- along choruses, carrying pulsing sequences and other vicious noise loops. From frontal industrial dance and the dark elektro hit “Censorship through Noise” to lush and sublime melancholic chansons (“The Last Record”) through more upbeat future pop- or techno-pop songs, this new album has a high addictive potential for all electro industrial freaks open to synth pop music with an edge.
And this also gets reinforced by the sensual vocal contribution of HELALYN FLOWERS’ frontgirl Noemi Aurora on several songs. And as always with IMPLANT, the album of course holds some sonic surprises and more experimental moments evoking techno, trance and other allusions to the very characteristic sound of Belgium (eg. “The Room”, “Nutshell”).
