Known by the name today, Celldwellder, industrial music pioneer Circle of Dust, has announced that their new album, Machines of our Disgrace, will be available for purchase on December 9th.
Like many other artists, the fans of Circle of Dust are excited to get any amount of music. It is not uncommon for an artist to go on a hiatus. This is because the music business itself can be pretty exhausting for an artist who originally was interested in music because of their love for the art. Made by artist/producer Klayton, who is best known by his fans from the multi-genre project Celldweller, Circle Of Dust brings Klayton back to his industrial roots. This can be heard from the metal riffs, amazing electronics, and the always needed catchy song lyrics. Luckily for fans who are so eager to get their hands on new music from Klayton. The album will be available for pre-order on November 18th. Pre-orders have almost become mandatory for artists who have a faithful fan base that will always be there when it is time to put out a new album or go on a tour for the first time in years.
Machines Of our Disgrace will be the fifth full-length album in the discography of Circle Of Dust. The new album makes use of different styles of music by combining modern metal and electronic production with deep industrial noise as well as samples. One of the parts of music that can lead to success is a catchy song and great vocals. Klayton makes use of both aggressive and melodic vocals. What adds to the lovable vocals is the lyrics about mankind’s technological evolution. He does this in songs like “Contagion” and the title track “Machines of our Disgrace”. The topics covered on the album do not stop at technology. On tracks like “alt_human” and “Neurachem” Klayton explores biohacking and genetic modification.
Other tracks like “Hive mind” and “Humanarchy” go in a different direction by discussing mans place in modern society’s political and scientific moral ambiguity. Perhaps the biggest standout on the album in regards to sound and topic. The song “Outside In” brings the listener torwards Circle of Dust’s softer side by grabbing ahold of the heart of a listener through its amazing use of the guitar, soothing harmonies and thoughtful lyrics.
