Very good. Deserved to place higher but the competition was excellent this year.

great demo in a killer compo! So a 4th in this compo is better than 1. in most compos!

Great style! Great mood.

Tough competition indeed, but this demo really stands out as well if you ask me.

It' hard to judge a product if a competition full of potential winners. This one is sure a masterpiece. It's kind of unique in many ways and it's simple, clean & beautiful.

-scene poetry that lacks a proper conclusion
+slick, polished
+the two stills of the models, awesome!

I can't thumb it down, because it clearly displays effort and a good overall cohesiveness. But the whole time I was waiting for a point where the lyrics would get more concrete, that the atmospherical text would develop into a small story.

Maali: I've got half a mind to start asking money for people who use BRIGADE all the time! But oh wait, I'd have to hand that over to Shifter and Mux since they were first.. :)

numtek: the point is the last text of the demo. dekadence is dead. :/

actually one of my favorites from most of the compos.

A surprisingly sober and decent farewell note to "Finland's most active"

too ambient for me but still nice

Traditional effects, design and music, but used to create a great atmosphere. Loved it.

But wtf? You can't quit! Please tell me you're continuing on some of the other labels at least.

Love the effect on the screen shot. Music was real nice too if I remember correctly.

Slow but beautiful and moody. Should win.

-scene poetry that lacks a proper conclusion

what scene poetry ?
If you'd know the Dekadence releases of the past you'd realise that
this production is the conclusion of the voyage.

It was fun while it lasted. Rest easy Dekadence.

Nice demo. Very polished. I like it a lot. Good design.
The music is great, atmospheric.

Swan song of Dekadence (damn, another demogroup gone).

Great design, mood and atmosphere. Some effects are great. I really enjoyed the greetings part. Nice touch.

May I add that I would definitely Über-appreciate a download link for the soundtrack which is a very strong candidate for my "space night" play list.

A beautiful presentation overall and indeed a worthy farewell.

Ok now i'm expecting dekadence to release "1986" or somesuch in 2 years time.

Ok, it´s melancholic but it´s great while you are sitting well boozed in front of the bigscreen with your demoscene friends.

Beautiful! More !!

Fluent execution but.. got boring after a while. It's probably just me so a piggie.
added on the 2011-04-26 23:01:45 by kbi kbi
Awesome. I missed the intention of the last screen during the compo as well as when I watched it at home. Odd. Ok, I take it back that it lacks a conclusion, since it obviously does, my bad. It also justifies the emoscene aspect. Hoping for a resurrection!

Beautiful, kind of bittersweet. And great soundtrack.

This made me think of old Replay productions, very nice :). I don't like scene poetry, but once in a while it's ok. The visuals were pretty (especially the foliage... thingy ;)) - nothing extraordinary but pretty to look at. The soundtrack was hauntingly beautiful and it's the sole reason why I listen to the likes of Radix and Planet Boelex. From a technical standpoint this prod couldn't have won the compo but I liked the mood of this one best of all the entries (maybe I'm a closet emo or something ;D)

Yet another excellent demo, with great bittersweet mood and good soundtrack. I loved it, it deserved higher ranking, but the competition this year was just too good.

Lovely demo! Everything fits so perfectly together, graphics, music, design, effects. Excellent! I might come back later and give it a CDC. :)

Don't know if it's coz each time I see a release on Amiga this reminds me about the good time i spent on that machine years ago. But, I enjoyed the present demo during Rev, so: thumb up.

Awesome! My fav demo from Britelite - I have the feeling you improved a lot in last year - f.e. all that light-stuff was great. The only thing I dislike a tad bit is those two static screens at about 02:00 - I'd love to see them moving in some way. Britelite showed me the demo on the party and I instantly felt in love with the music despite listening to it with only one earphone :) Just great.

Hmmm ... Back to abstract 3D objects rotating in the middle of the screen and random slogans. Not bad i suppose, but doesn't work for me.
