4.0 excellentBritch2tiger | March 5th 16

I'm guessing a heavy inspirational dose of Skinny Puppy went into this album, maybe some latent sounds of Marilyn Manson, and a lot of techno. Even if Klayton doesn't like this album, I still think this album is not half bad album... If given the choice b/w this album or Front Line Assembly's Caustic Grip, I'd prefer this album.

Christian industrial metal is a genre that's as scarce as they come, and it's understandable why that is. The often violent attitude and nihilistic perspective that's common in industrial music is the polar opposite of Christian music's hopeful outlook and loving spirit, but Circle of Dust's self titled debut album found a way to marry these two opposites together in a way where they brought out the best in one another. Christian music had already become more flexible to the amounts of aggression the genre could display, with artists using alternative metal as a vehicle for their holy themes, but Circle of Dust brought how heavy Christian music could be to an all new level. Before this album, Christian metal hadn't been introduced to the harsh electronic assault and chugging riffs of industrial rock, and Circle of Dust provide the genre with a modern metal take on industrial music that draws as much pointers from Nine Inch Nails as it does Skinny Puppy. On the other end of the spectrum, the album has harnessed the soulful harmonies Christian music is known for, and has supplied industrial music with very symphonic and melodic choruses that contrast the gritty production nicely. Industrial music has never been this melodic, and Christian music has never been this heavy, making Circle of Dust a boundary-pushing album.
