Official press release:
French multifaceted, post-black metal band Decline Of The I will release their third studio album titled Escape on the 27th of July via Agonia Records. In anticipation, the band has revealed a new music video for the edit version of the track “Je Pense Donc Je Fuis”. The video is available here:
Escape will feature six varied, original compositions (including the full, 12-minute version of “Je Pense Donc Je Fuis”) replete with artwork from David Fitt, who filmed the new video.
The band commented:
“After a heavy and neurasthenic first chapter, and an epileptic, dirty and violent second one, here’s the last part of the Decline Of The I’s trilogy: Escape. It’s now time to leave, to avoid this perpetual aggression of the outside world. All the other reactions leaded to a dead end. Running away is the only possible move for the subject to preserve its entity. There are many forms of escape: madness, suicide, technology, spirituality. This third album explores all of them. Musically, it’s the synthesis of all the previews works; it’s contemplative and slow but also very fast, dark and brutal”
Escape was recorded, mixed and mastered at Blacksun Recording by Junior Rodriguez. The album will be available in CD, LP and digital formats.
Pre-orders will be available soon at Agonia’s webstore.

2. “Enslaved By Existence”

Decline Of The I originates from France and is inspired by the works of the French surgeon, writer and philosopher Henri Laborit. The band is led by a multi-instrumentalist, A – a skilled musician, who’s been a part of the metal scene for over 20 years, during which he played in bands such as Vorkreist, Merrimack, Neo Inferno 262, Malhkebre and Diapsiquir. Decline Of The I is his personal approach on dark music, in which he’s accompanied by musicians of Merrimack, Anus Mundi, Temple of Baal, Eibon and Drowning Fame.
