DIE FORM / Duality

Die Form have been making their own distinctively unsettling brand of dark electronic music for nearly two decades. Comprised of synthesist/vocalist Philippe Fichot and vocalist Eliane P, Die Form's approach to electronic music is stark, sensual, and strikingly beautiful - filled with operatic overtones, classical textures, tribalism, and the type of sensual imagery that is normally kept hidden deep within our most intimate closets.

It is the band's imagery that has garnered them the most notoriety - elements of bondage and sadomasochism continually pepper their albums, but these images are used with a strong sense of good taste. Die Form raises erotica to an art form that is not to be surpassed in the field. Sensuality, not just sexuality, is their guiding light.

This approach to sensuality is evident in their music. Soothing, pulsing, filled with Gregorian-styled female vocals, yet also underpinned with a darkness that leaves the listener slightly off-balance - the music of Die Form is as beautiful as your first encounter with love, yet just as disquieting as discovering this same lover in the arms of an incubus.

"Duality" was the due's Metropolis debut: a musical study of the opposites of light and dark, male and female, beauty and tragedy, acoustic and electronic, and, as always, love and passion. Die Form's exploration continues in 1999 with "Histories", a 20-year synopsis of their journey so far.

Die Form will take hold of your soul, and lead you into dark rooms you never knew existed. It will lead you to a stranger's bed; it will caress your mind with such soft intensify as to leave you helplessly awaiting your lover's return. It will join the darkest corners of your mind with the most blinding light that your love has to offer.

Die Form offers more than just music. It offers a doorway into corridors you never knew were there. Be daring, and open the door.
