Die Form’s newest album, ExHuman, is the final part of a diptych which began with the 2004 album InHuman. Marking an evolution, but also a renewal as far as tools, technique and composition are concerned, ExHuman exonerates the French S&M band to new levels of musical genius. Éliane’s vocals hold a prominent place as a revealer of emotions, contrasting with the dark universe of images, the cruelty of some of the lyrics and the para-mechanical option of Phillippe’s electronic music. Among other things, the diptych is about the pact between the human and the animal, the agony of the soul, forbidden loves, murderous madness, the spirit of the forest, and the sacrifice of nature. The framework of the first part, InHuman, was about the very essence of man, where as ExHuman deals with man’s surroundings and the effect that they have on him. Together, these two avant-garde pieces give an extraordinary observation and critical analysis of mankind and the forces around him.
