Bathory Blaze This really takes me back. Klayton is awesome. If you missed this back in the 90s make sure you don't miss it this time. I still call this album Mindwarp though, not Brainchild. Just like how System 1 will always be Musical Conjurings to me. Favorite track: Telltale Crime.

419echo Circle of Dust's debut album had the electronics more prominently featured, but the second album, 'Brainchild' is a blast of guitars and drums that stands with the best industrial/metal I've ever heard. The samples really give you a sense that this album intended to make a statement, possibly of retaliation. Every track is fantastic, and should appeal to any fans of guitar driven industrial. Favorite track: Deviate.

Blaine Buxton One of my favorite albums of all time. The guitar tone is to die for, great sound design, and catchy songwriting puts this in a class of its own.

Dustfan An incredible album. Heavier than the s/t album. The dense layers of sound provide a different experience with each listen. Great use of Movie/TV samples throughout. Pale Reflection's use of 'Blade Runner' samples may be my favorite. The album's themes of corporate greed, media manipulation, moral erosion and senseless violence are as relevant today as they were in the 90s, if not more so. I find myself listening to this as much as I did back in the day. Truly an Industrial Metal masterpiece. Favorite track: Pale Reflection.

about

The 1994 sophomore album 'Brainchild' from Circle of Dust ushered in the continuation of Klayton’s legacy before Celldweller, Scandroid & the foundation of FiXT. Now, the album returns in full force, collected, remastered and expanded for a brand new audience as well as long time fans of the industrial titan Circle of Dust.

Each track from the original 'Brainchild' album appears with a complete audio overhaul to bring them into the modern era. Along with the original album tracks, this album contains the modern day debut of Circle of Dust with the single that marked the resurrection - Contagion - as well as a new Blue Stahli remix of one of the most iconic Circle of Dust songs, Deviate. Diving further into the Circle of Dust archives, you'll find a rare Circle of Dust cover track of Steve Taylor's "Am I In Sync", two live tracks from a 1995 performance, and continuation of the "Dust" demos, b-sides and unreleased tracks.

The Circle continues. From Dust - To Dust.

Track Name: Contagion
Has nobody noticed our infection?
This slow and willing genocide
Terminal sickness spreads through thoughts inside our heads
Our consciences under the knife

Willing transmission of disease
Worship new deities
Contagion

We’ve all succumbed to misdirection
Lost in the concerns of our own lives
Sedated willingly by our technology
Ignorant bliss until we die

Have we been sick since our inception?
Doomed to our own willing suicide
And as we watch it spread the living become dead
But never stop to question why

Contagion

Sickness in disguise
Our Contagion
Open up our eyes
Our Contagion
