One of the more surprising musical trends in punk/hardcore during 2012 was the resurgence of the death rock subgenre. Montreal’s Dekoder play the kind of post-punk that is easy to identify as following that trend, but Between The Waking And The Dying is hardly just regurgitating stale genre cues. It is a completely immersive record that leaves the skip button in a distant and murky land that one’s fingers shall never enter as long as the record plays.There are only eight songs on Between The Waking And The Dying, and it lasts a little over half an hour, so while these aren’t your three-minute pop songs they aren’t exactly exhaustive epics either. The structure Dekoder tend to rely on is one of tension and release, as well as repetition to hook you in without much in the way of actual hooks at all.
