Dusk Of Delusion is a French flagship band very close to Alter Bridge or Machine Head. They released a good first record ("(f)unfair"), then the superb "Watch Your 6" which allowed the band to express its passion for History intimately linked to stories. Fans of "Blade Runner", Philip K. Dick, "Starmania", "I Robot", they offer us this time "COrollarian RObotic SYStem [CO.RO.SYS]", a trip in time to a futuristic world as familiar as dark and cold. This near future is populated by almost human robots that replace men in their repetitive tasks ('Shadow Workers'), in their murderous wars ('Template Soldiers'), to be recycled once outdated or obsolete ('For The Flesh Press Repeat'). Take the red pill, dive into a world inhabited by human robots and dehumanized men.

After a radio interlude that draws this future ('09-04-2077'), 'Shadow Workers' presents a waitress (automaton) who dreams of better days. This song is a real metal ode where the guitars are powerful, the voice intense and the fragile melodies weave a golden case which sublimates the text...

The power is bluffing and omnipresent on the disc. 'The Hatred Confession' begins with a magnificent song with oriental flavors, then quickly follows on a jerky riff. This title sketches a rise in power towards a final explosion. 'For Flesh Press Repeat' starts with almost religious choirs, submerged in hellish power and variations that reminds  progressive music. 'Erotic Fusion' opens with a symphonic oration in the manner of Fear Factory, and continues with a hallucinogenic rhythm with disembodied voices and surgical guitars.

The strength of the record lies in the ambiences and the moving melodies that it proposes. Thus 'Legal Slaves' begins with beautiful icy chords, quickly supplanted by riffs with sublime power. Evolving at the doors of the industrial metal, it reminds of some albums of S.U.P ("Chronophobia" and "Anomaly" in head). 'The Snap' also opens with industrial sounds and continues with a percussive rhythm that Pantera would not deny. Finally '£1ONH€4RT_B4$T4RD' is based on cold harmonies coming from simple guitars, in the service of a pure emotion.

Dusk Of Delusion offers a Dantesque album, a great record as we rarely hope to hear. The strength of the themes, the heavy ambiences, the beautiful melodies, the varied rhythms, the technical passages make it a record as unclassifiable as essential. The band signs a punchy record that draws a bitter conclusion about our dehumanized hyper technological society. Here is their record of maturity.
