Yesterday, Klayton of the electro-industrial project Celldweller, after the recent release of the remastered edition of Circle of Dust‘s last album, Disengage which was released in 1998, announced the release date of the up-coming Circle of Dust album – Machines of Our Disgrace . It’ll be the first album of the original industrial metal project in twenty years, and will feature tracks Contagion, Neophyte and Machines of Our Disgrace, all of which featured as one off singles and appeared on the remastered editions of previous albums. On the official Facebook, the album is described as “pushing the envelope in fusing modern metal and electronic production with gritty industrial noise & samples on Machines of Our Disgrace. Klayton incorporates both aggressive and melodic vocals with thought provoking lyrics about man’s technological evolution”.
Alongside the information on the album, which will be the fifth full length album of the industrial metal project, was a promotional image of the album cover and official pre-order and release dates.
A couple of weeks prior, on the 21st October, Klayton had also revealed the pre-order and release dates for his synthwave project Scandroid‘s first full length album three years after the bands original conception in 2013, with multi-instrumentalist Varien. The album will feature well known (remastered) tracks such as Salvation Code; Data Stream; Empty Streets; Aphelion and Pro-bots vs Robophobes (the second track to be of solo production, and to feature another solo project, Circle of Dust). The album is to feature a limited edition cassette version, and an instrumental version.
Then, accompanying the release date of Machines of Our Disgrace, Klayton revealed a new Scandroid instrumental track called Destination Unknown, which in the video features a virtual reality version of Klayton (under the name of Red), driving alongside a never ending bridge with sound waves.
