After a heavy and neurasthenic first chapter, Inhibition (2012), the new opus Rebellion represents a more brutal side of Decline Of The I, emerging through violent, epileptic and fast compositions.
"Mixing different kinds of dark and extreme music, the album is hard to be compared with any other band", comments founder, A.K.
The concept of Decline Of The I is inspired by the works of the biologist Henri Laborit and falls into the genre of avant-garde post-black metal.
The band is led by the multi-instrumentalist A.K. (guitars, keyboards, programming, samples, bass and drums) who is accompanied by S. on drums, V. on vocals and G. also on vocals. A.K. has played in numerous metal bands such as Vorkreist, Merrimack, Neo Inferno 262, Malhkebre and Diapsiquir. Decline Of The I is his "personal approach on dark music".
