    Not sure if it's well known, but Celldweller is a one man show (a man by the name of Klayton), and Klayton's previous incarnations include Circle of Dust and Argyle Park, which are both much more in the vein of early NIN material. It is rumoured that through Circle of Dust Klayton and Trent became mutual influences on each other. Though they both have since obviously departed from that sound into very different arenas.

    I listened to Celldweller a hell of a lot until about a year ago when he jumped on the dubstep bandwagon. His Wish Upon A Blackstar album started promisingly but I think it's a complete mess now it's done. I still respect his production skills though.

    End of an Empire is finally done and released, it is glorious!

    Also if anyone follows Klayton's work, he is remastering and redoing all the Circle of Dust stuff!

    I still don't understand why Celldweller isn't more appreciated on this forum... :/

    Not like he's obscure or anything and of any Maynard James Keenan or Mike Patton types Klayton Scott would be up there especially in the company of Nine Inch Nails/Trent Reznor.

    FYI if there are any Circle of Dust fans.

    Klayton just remastered and released the first CoD album and there will be more to follow with a BRAND NEW CoD record.

    For those of you who don't already know, you may want to check out Transformers: Age of Extinction sometime with an ear towards its sound design, since Celldweller was actually brought onboard to do some custom sound design work on it.

    Which, of course, sounds FUCKING AMAZING.

    I'm glad he brought the Circle of Dust project back, the Brainchild album was always one of my favorites. The new track continues in a very similar vein.

    Been listening to Celldweller again lately. I still have yet to get End of an Empire.






    CIRCLE OF DUST Announces New Album, Machines of Our Disgrace
    Available December 9th via FIXT


    Detroit, MI - Industrial music pioneer CIRCLE OF DUST has announced a new full-length studio album titled Machines of Our Disgrace, due December 9th (via FIXT), after a near 20-year hiatus. Created by artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, CIRCLE OF DUST returns to Klayton's industrial roots with metal riffs, pulsing electronics and catchy songwriting.

    The album will be available for pre-order on November 18th.

    Returning for the project's 5th full-length album, CIRCLE OF DUST pushes 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, with songs like "Contagion" and the title track "Machines of Our Disgrace" questioning our relationship with technology while "alt_Human" and "Neurachem" explore the world of biohacking and genetic modification. The tracks "Hive Mind" and "Humanarchy" provide commentary on man's place in modern society's political and scientific moral ambiguity. The emotionally charged "Outside In" shows CIRCLE OF DUST's softer side in a heart-gripping track with lush harmonies, acoustic guitars, pulsing sound design and introspective lyrics.

    In anticipation of a new album, Klayton re-acquired the rights to his original CIRCLE OF DUST catalog from the 90s, after nearly 2 decades of pursuing a deal to re-gain ownership. In 2016 Klayton remastered and re-released deluxe versions of the entire CIRCLE OF DUST catalogue, featuring over 11 hours of music across 175 tracks from the following 5 albums: Circle of Dust (self-titled), Brainchild, Metamorphosis, Disengage and a side project titled Argyle Park.

    CIRCLE OF DUST is back. Prepare to re-engage.

    About CIRCLE OF DUST:




















    CIRCLE OF DUST, the 90s industrial / electronic-rock project created by visionary artist/producer Klayton, marked the beginning of the musical career of the man who later went on to create independent success as Celldweller, as well as forming his own label - FIXT. Along with four full-length Circle of Dust albums in the 90s (Circle of Dust, Brainchild, Metamorphosis, Disengage), Klayton created a side-project under the name Argyle Park, which featured a vast collection of guest collaborators, including Tommy Victor of Prong, J.G. Thirlwell of Foetus and Mark Salomon (Stavesacre/Crucified).

    Locked away collecting "dust" for 20+ years, the rights to the Circle of Dust& Argyle Park albums were unavailable to Klayton as the original labels they were signed to shut down in the mid-90s. After 2 decades of pursuing a deal to re-gain ownership of the albums, Klayton was finally able to reclaim the rights in 2015.

    As Klayton began planning the remastering and re-release of the original albums, a new idea began to grow. He decided to not only re-release each album, but to fully resurrect the project and create a new full-length CIRCLE OF DUST album, to be released December 2016, nearly 20 years after the last CIRCLE OF DUST release.

    Not only are all the re-releases completely remastered, but each includes demos, unreleased bonus tracks, acoustic/alternate versions of tracks as well as some new remixes.

    Love how he's remastering Circle of Dust and making a new album without any of his old bandmates. Who gives a fuck about Klank, eh?

    Also, he's scoring a movie! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4681432/fullcredits

    Talking of which, I like that Klank solo album:



    But didn't like the Klayton-less follow up, Numb, and then I lost sight of it.

    I'd say Wish Upon a Blackstar and End of an Empire are good starting points. Then, listen to the Soundtrack for the Voices in my Head series for his more ambient and instrumental works. His debut self-titled album is way too dated, but still has a few good tunes (some of them were "updated" on The Complete Cellout).
