Exclusive Video Premiere: Circle of Dust, “Neurachem”
If MetalSucks readers are familiar with artist/producer Klayton, it’s likely as Celldweller, his long-running mostly electronic music project. We also featured his new synthwave alter-ego Scandroid in our Synthwave Sunday column earlier this fall.
But Klayton cut his teeth with the industrial outfit Circle of Dust, who released four albums in the genre’s heyday before moving on in the late ’90s. Now he’s resurrected the project after a near twenty year hiatus to release Machines of Our Disgrace, out now via FiXT. The album undulates with the electronic intensity we’ve come to know via Celldweller, but pulsates with heavily distorted guitars and both clean and aggressive vocals. In short: it’s old-school industrial metal done right, which is really scratching our itch for the genre right about now.
