Icon of Coil - 2 (One Nation Under Beat & Seren EP)
If one is talking about Future Pop and Melodic EBM, it is impossible to pass by Icon of Coil who are usually mentioned in the same breath as VNV Nation and Apoptygma Berzerk. Unfortunately, in Europe the group’s early releases have turned into hard-to-find rarities, as they were deleted years ago. A fan´s search for the bands older Tatra albums and singles has more often than not turned out a highly frustrating endeavor. Now, Out of Line releases a complete anthology of Icon of Coil´s early years on three Compact Discs. “I” will contain the debut single “Shallow Nation” and the first full-length album “Serenity is the Devil”. “II” encompasses the two first EPs, “One Nation Under One Beat” and “Seren E.P.”, while “III” features the second album “The Soul is in the Software” and the “Access and Amplify”-EP. Now, all of the band´s club smashers from the Tatra-years, such as “Regret”, “Disconnect”, “Floorkiller” and “Shallow Nation” (the single that turned Icon of Coil into one o
most prolific acts in the scene virtually over night), will be again widely available on CD. Icon of Coil combine the melodies of Synth Pop, the aggressive beats of EBM and the club-compatibility of Techno like no other act in the business. Therefore, “I”, “II” and “III” belong into any decent Electro collection as no friend of fat beats, synthetic sequencer drive and addictive melodies should be able to pass them by.
