Though s series of convolutions I came across the work of one Scott Albert, a.k.a Klayton, a.k.a Celldweller. Some real good shit, right there. Reminds me of NIN, but much, much better than Trent’s latest effort!
Later on along the timeline, I discover that Celldweller fronted a band known as Circle of Dust, a *Christian* industrial metal band, no less!
I never thought Christians could shred and oontz-oontz with such ferocity and conviction – some of their secular counterparts could certain take a few notes from their sonic Bible!
Lyrically their stance is obvious without being overstated for the most part. Some lyrics like the chorus of ‘Onenemy’ (Four cycles moving on/three dark days and death is gone/two wishes to fulfill/only onenemy to kill) have a certain intrigue about them….
….. almost makes me wanna dust off my old Bible and play Chase the Reference…..
Never thought I’d say it, but those Crischun boys sure can rock like a muthacane!
