eyerock36 Twenty five years later, this music remains futuristic. I've always enjoyed the cyber metal, the samples, the electronics, the great use of dynamics (quiet vs loud parts), the bizarre vocals (especially on Living Sacrifice material), and the general mysteriousness of the music. Was this conceived in an alternate universe? And the remastered re-release makes it all even better! Awesome!

Sanek A mysterious creation. I'd describe the album's content as as an image of musty decay, a mesmerizing trip through the wasteland, a dream. Still industrial, but darker, and deadlier. Nihilistic Void is a song containing everything I love about old Circle Of Dust. The remixes are expanding an impression of metamorphosis. Favorite track: Nihilistic Void.

about

Metamorphosis - the third album released from Circle of Dust - was a rare gem among Klayton’s early discography that has been shrouded in confusion and mystery. A pseudo-compilation album featuring remixes from Circle of Dust (self-titled) and Brainchild, along with remixes of (at-the-time) Death Metal label-mates Living Sacrifice, were brought together being remixed/produced by Klayton. Despite the confusion, this album served as the spark that ignited Klayton’s pioneering spirit into genre-mashing remixes that took existing ideas of both his own and others, flipped them on their head, and produced something no one other than himself could have ever imagined.

Along with the remixes found on Metamorphosis, three original tracks from Circle of Dust – "Heldweller," "Nihilistic Void," & "Daraq" – found their home on this titanic release and have been joined in the re-release by other rarities such as the custom album intro track "Emerge" that Klayton created for Living Sacrifice’s 1992 album Nonexistent, "Never" a single from a brief side-project Klayton created called Rivot, and a Circle of Dust remix of lvl’s "Backslide."

Not only has Metamorphosis been remastered, undergoing complete sonic overhaul, but now includes a brand new remix from Blue Stahli, a 1987 cassette demo of "Heldweller," Argyle Park-era collaboration demos between Klayton and Tommy Victor of Prong, and of course - more of the unreleased, archival "Dust" demos.

34 tracks.
18 never-before-heard rarities.
2 hours of music.
