Klay Scott is now widely known as an underground industrial mastermind. The man behind Celldweller (his most recent incarnation), Argyle Park, and most famously Circle of Dust, the man has demonstrated exceptional musical ability and technical proficiency, blending pulsating electronics with brutal guitar riffs. On "Circle of Dust," the debut (originally released in '92 and remixed and rereleased in '95) shows a genius in the making. Think Ministry with heavier electronics, more techno beats, and more samples. The guitar riffs are heavy, the lyrics poignant and meaningful, and the music leaves you in a state where you're not sure whether you want to mosh and bang your head or dance 'til your feet hurt. Songs such as "Rational Lies" and "Nothing Sacred" show a more melodic side, while "Demoralize" and "Self Inflict" (off the '95 version) are more aggressive. It's hard to tell which version of the album you're getting (chances are it's the '95 version...Klay hates the original '92 version, so it's harder to find), but either way "Circle of Dust"'s first album is a treat for underground industrial fans and for fans of Klay Scott looking to see how it all started. I miss Circle of Dust, but Celldweller is here to satisfy my pallette...Klay Scott can do no wrong.

I wish that COD can reunite to perform shows together, because they are the most promising Industrial band in the world. As a Christian, I respect Klayton's lyrics. Each different song deals with spiritual struggle or how chaotic the world is. If you are looking for new music or trying to get into Electronic/Industrial music, this is a good album to start with. God bless Scott "Klayton" Albert and be with him.

Review of the 2016 Deluxe Edition

For fans of metal/electronic hybrid music with industrial infusions the return of Circle of Dust is easily one of the most exciting happenings in the rock/metal world in 2016. Klayton was able to procure all of his music from the 90’s written under the COD/Argyle Park moniker. Not only will all 5 albums be re-released, the word from Klayton is that each reissue will remastered, in some cases remixed, and all upgraded with bonus content.

There is no denying that the debut release (originally ’92) was and remains a landmark release in the world of “electronic” music – the techno lush yet guitar infused mix incredibly addictive, especially since in many ways COD was much more melodic and accessible than most bands in the scene at the time. But as most fans know, despite its popularity (especially within the Christian market where no one was doing anything this inventive or extreme) Klayton (who was never happy with the release) essentially “remade” the album and re-released it in 1995. This new version is essentially a bit of a hybrid (if you will) between the ’92 and ’95 releases but follows the song template of the ’95 release. I can say it is nice to have “Exploration” (the 2016 version) back at the top of the song list – its predecessor included on the Disc 2 bonus material – but some fans will be disappointed that “Technological Disguise” and “Senseless Abandon” have not similarly been resurrected. Still, you will not hear any complaints here as there is plenty enough to satisfy in this nearly 2 hour set.

So how does this version sound? Obliterating – this is the word that keeps coming to mind as these songs rework their magic through the speakers almost 25 years since their inception.

I just downloaded the 95 version, having lasted for the last 20 years with the 92 copy on cd. I have to say...this new version is really, really good. It's remastered, with new tracks (Klayton scrapped a few of the old ones, but...oh well), and a few of the similar tracks sound like they've been re-recorded. This is a really good album, and I'm definitely digging it. If you haven't checked out Circle of Dust, or Celldweller, do so soon.

4.5/5

Great album!! But if you are a new CoD fan, I would recommend looking for the 'Remastered' Album by Klayton (The man behind Circle of Dust). While the sound is clearly 1990's, it is still a great listen!

I was amazed to hear that COD had been ressurected from the dust! It was like and is a dream come true. All Circle Of Dust is exceptional! And is this remastered beefed up version of the original debut delivers and satisfies my starving and thirsty industrial metal appetite! Plus new song and new remixes and some never before released stuff! Well worth the buy for COD fans plus those who love old school techno industrial metal!

Yes it is!! Let me say that holding a copyrighted 2016 Circle of Dust album in shrink-wrap and then opening it is a bit surreal. And it's just the first of more to come!

This re-release/remaster (w/ bonus material) of the self-titled Circle of Dust album just rules!! The individual tracks of these remastered songs sound more distinct and clear, with a crisp newness about them. If you are well familiar with the 92 release and the 95 re-release you will hear things you didn’t notice (or simply couldn’t hear) before! In my opinion this is the best industrial metal in existence! If you are a fan of Klayton’s other work or just a lover of (industrial) metal, you MUST acquire this Circle of Dust release. This is where Klayton started it all: CIRCLE OF DUST!!! (Well, except for Immortal ;)

Now with that said, regarding Disc 1: It's basically the 1995 self-titled re-release re-mastered (Yes! Technically this is the 3rd variant of this album) with the addition of Exploration (1992 release) re-recorded, and it sounds really good! The various tracks are clearer and more defined. I can definitely hear things (beeps, noises, samples, and different electronic layers) that I either didn't notice or couldn't pick out or hear before.

Regarding Disc 2: Every song is pretty much as titled. The "Cassette Demos" are exactly that; cassette demos. Very cool for COD fans! The tracks "Dust 04 - Dust 09" sound to me like songs/parts of songs from the Circle of Dust era that were never finished or didn't make the cut or something like that? Pretty cool, I think! Gives you a glimpse into the mind of a musical metal master at work! There is no duplicate material on disc 2 unless otherwise specified (ex. Exploration (Redux) on disc 1 & Exploration (1992) on disc 2).
