industry XI (eleven)(fear of faith)-complete collection

one of my all time faves:

the last recordings from this band that i'm aware of.  while good in it's own right, it follows the path the band was taking into mellower material since their FoF days, and boom-you see one way in which the title is applicable.  never uploaded before as i was trying to sell these cds (i still have a few-OF COURSE) for a while.

one of my fave bands (Fear of Faith) during a transitional period.
1. why should we?
2. never
3. inside
4. undone
5. grieve
6. this momentary affliction
Review from ballistic test zine:

This six-song tape is the fourth album for a trio of guys formely known as Fear of Faith and who now reside under the moniker of Industry Eleven. While I did enjoy the terminal velocity and ferocity of the FoF sound, Frustration finds the band searching for their own identity, whereas the former entity was somewhat of a novelty.

First, the guitars are a notch lower on the speed gauge. The chainsaw-like guitars are now razor sharp instead of just a blur of noise which makes catching the grooves and riffs a lot easier. The monstor rhythm in "Why Should We", for example, is a sound that often plays out in my head at unexpected times of the day and one I immediately associate with this band.
Second, the band attempts to integrate a degree of melody into their sound through the vocals and synths. The heavily distorted vocals seem less harsh but are certainly still quite angry and bitter. The delivery is predominately in the form of yells or screams but there are a few moments of actual singing. I find myself being able to better empathize with the extreme emotional turmoil and strife the band is venting in their lyrics. On the surface, Eleven may appear to be wrought with nothing but gloom and doom. However, the listener can find hope buried in the sand if they are willing to dig for it. The angelic imagery that appears in the insert is one bit of evidence.
Dark ambient synths and pulsating electro percussion also help to distinguish Eleven from other cookie-cutter death/thrash metal bands. For example, the ambient synths accentuate the somberness of "Grieve", while on "Never" synthetic machine-gun fire percussion accelerates the pace. It's all nicely done and makes things more interesting to listen to.
This album has quite a few things going for it. Production is solid. It comes with two interchangable cover inserts that share a common gold, white, silver, and black colour scheme. You can choose to have a stern, intimidating face staring back at you or or an ethereal angel beckoning your spirit. Three of the songs here are not available on the band's 1997 CD release which is another reason why you might want to track down this tape. Frustration is a bitter metal album with a silver electro lining.

--Richard Maaranen
fear of faith took a left turn here...but a VERY good (and VERY interesting) one.
without a proper box to put this in, let me just say, i've never heard anything like it.  another reason why FoF was one of my fave bands.

1. dying for one    4:21
2. blind                 4:57
3. withdrawn         5:26
4. i and those        3:38

from the original post:

fear of faith was so exceedingly awesome...i'm tempted to re-rip some tapes and repost...
i feel like the very lucky duck who got a copy of this particular release (thanks to andy/running dog)

far different from the early speed/death fear of faith stuff and also the later 'more conventional' industry XI stuff...this shit here is great in its own right.  one of the few cases where we find a strange juxtaposition...making for some great ends.
hard as can be...softly...#1.

here's a very old review from ballistic test zine....
"A year after knocking the socks off the metal and industrial underground crowds with their two extreme industrial-metal demos Dredge and Tension, Fear of Faith released their third demo, Blind, with a surprising change in style. Gone are the blazing guitars and hard-hitting percussion, while the harsh, distorted vocals and liberal use of voice samples remain relatively untouched. In comes mostly melodic acoustic guitars, minimal use of electric guitars, and a deliberate vocal attempt to convey a greater range of emotion, albeit still behind a guise of distortion.There are four songs here: the title track "Blind", "Withdrawn", which was featured on the Electro Shock Therapy compilation, "I and Those Who Were", and "Dying for One". The easy-listening, mellower music and the harsher vocals provide a stark contrast, but the band effectively turns them into complementary elements instead of the expected conflict or mismatch. The four songs sound rather alike with similar guitar progressions and vocals but this is hardly a problem as the melodies the guitars emanate are quite nice. The song I like best off Blind is "Dying for One", with its cool industrial underlayer of mechanical pistons and bass rumblings.
On one hand, FoF may have lost some fans of their early material with this relatively tame, metal-free release. On the other hand, their creativity and ability to progress musically beyond the confines of an industrial-speed-metal approach earn them greater respect. As it is, Blind is the most distinctive and accessible of the band's three demos.

christian plumber - "chaos" (2001 Cling recordings)

single sided cassette release of
~~~~~~~~~~~~ noise
                    christian plumber.
...weird though.
*(i honestly don't know what exactly is what as far as the track listing goes.  i ripped the cassette myself several years ago, i'm pretty sure it's all in there.  gene jesus isn't tagged so i dunno which track it's attached to, if any...)
†for many it was throbbing gristle or merzbow, for me it was christian plumber and mental destruction...  in the mid 90's i realized there were other cats out there doing similar stuff to what i'd been doing since 90.  great day...but unfortunately i've produced a horrible amount of stuff since.  however, can't help it.  i've tried.
1. invocation
2. vomitus christie
3. praise the lord
4. geenie jesus
5. batboy
6. abc-dx
7. ø (my first bass solo)

E.D.L. - "every day life" (demo 1994)

this one had me excited to no end when i first heard it.

the first track '90's warfare' is still probably my fave e.d.l. track with its metal backing, rapcore delivery, use of samples and death metal vocal howls.  sadly, they didn't use much of most of these elements in their following full length albums.

'look' appeared on their debut full length cd, but in a quite different version.
'flow' seems out of place at first, a funky lo-fi hip hop number. its good to have, but easy to see why it was left off of the debut.
'hunger' ends the tape strong...distorted vocals over a steady groove.

1. 90's warfare
2. look
3. flow
4. hunger
Included as a bonus: the early and rare track from the 'noize compilation' unreleased elsewhere...

moby - "hymn.alt.quiet.version" (1994 mute records limited)

hymn.alt.quiet.version  33.3333333333333

one of the first non-major (of over 100) releases i bought by moby and still one of my faves.
btw...there are no beats at all on this record, in fact, it is quite a beautiful ambient giant.

wickeds end - "temporal pain" [1994 floppy fish]

in a bit of revisionist history (they're more than entitled to it!) side-band "stone face" has been included under all things "wickeds end" on their bandcamp page, which i can't blame them for.  (i always found stone face to be the stronger of the two acts-then again, they're just different)  stone face material is awesome and it's good that it's out there again, albeit unfortunately censored.  this is a rip from the original tape release of the more straight forward thrash metal original wickeds end.  enjoy and be sure to check out stone face too on bandcamp (now referred to as wickeds end)

beauty - "automatic killfest" (2000 self-released)

some tracks are dancey, some are machine gun rapid fire industrial metal
 (big heavy guitar action included),
some tracks have more of an electro-ambient thing going on,
vocals are sometimes whispered, sometimes heavily distorted, sometimes

 otherwise heavily processed. samples, etc.
very good genre record.

reject remixes 2017 [ask]

a handful of years ago i began to ask friends for remixes of "reject #1"
years later...having received a few mixes, i need more for at least 40 min of tracks.  the original was only a 60 min tape so this should be relatively easy.  i did some remixes too.  anyway, i'm saying i'm into this again and i'm asking for more mixes.
thanks in advance...hell, thanks for wasting life on reading this nonsense.
the master was recorded to one tape, so there are no additional source materials.  the original is found here.  have fun!

saviour machine - "0" (1990 indie)

from wikipedia:
 "Eric Clayton's most ambitious work has been Saviour Machine, which released two studio albums Saviour Machine I (1993) and Saviour Machine II (1994) before starting the Legend trilogy that strictly focuses on the end times, Book of Revelation and prophecies about the biblical apocalypse. The band has also released a compilation album titled Synopsis (2003), the live albums Live in Deutschland 1995 and Live in Deutschland 2002. Both were also filmed and released on VHS and DVD format. The band was originally signed to Christian metal label Frontline Records but gothic metal in all its visual appearance was misunderstood in US Christian scenes, and eventually Saviour Machine began work with MCM Music and Massacre Records, labels based in Germany where the band was more popular than in US. In 1997 Saviour Machine performed at Wacken Open Air, the biggest exclusively metal music festival in the world.
Eric Clayton has on and off been working on the last album in the Legend series, Legend Part III:II, which should have been the last Saviour Machine album. The album was supposed to be released on July 7, 2007, but was postponed due to Clayton's esophageal condition called Barrett's Esophagus which was diagnosed in 2004 but eventually got worse.[2]
Clayton has compiled The Collective Journals (1997–2009) released in 2010 available at the band website. Soon after performing a handful of unplugged Saviour Machine-shows in The Netherlands and Germany in 2013, Eric Clayton officially broke up the band, abandoned the unfinished Legend-project, and retired from the music business. He is still committed to playing at Ayreon's Theater Equation shows in Holland in September 2015."

Frank's Enemy - "Qoheleth" (1993 Not Silent)

link line
man, you made a lonely world
you are god
reasons to say no

Frank's Enemy - "neoblasphemies" (1996 Cling records/CMG)

neoblasphemies was f.e.'s second "big label" cd. Frank's Enemy has always been some sort of weird...funk, grindcore, punk, electronic elements, death metal, growls and gutteral grunts, screams, noise, clean vocals, acoustic, thrash, ska, and a heap of crazy mixing.
Make no mistake, this is fuckin heavy.

11. Stephen Hawking Walked Away


Frank's Enemy - "illumination" (1998 Cling records/CMG)

the beginning of this cd (the 3rd from f.e.) has amused me ever since it came out. its great to start up loud and freak people out with who happen to be hanging around. Frank's Enemy has always been some sort of weird...funk, grindcore, punk, electronic elements, death metal, growls and gutteral grunts, screams, noise, clean vocals, acoustic, thrash, ska, and a heap of crazy mixing. when its good its really good, when its bad its not that bad, but it always made me wish they had stuck with the elements in their other great songs...
easy enough to call this experimental grindcore i guess.
enjoy....though likely this is a 'love it or hate it' album.

BETROTH - Screaming Out For Love (no idea- 90's sometime-look for info on this-good luck)

a hymn for her

not that it matters, or needs to be said or whatever...this is the's all about screaming into the void, right?
not that anyone remembers, but a hymn for her was an ambient project i started at the tail end of the 90's.   again, to continue my thought, not that it needs to be said or whatever, but the project is dead for pretty obvious reasons.  i don't fall out of love with sounds, so that's never been an issue, but that which drove a hymn for her, the source material, the inspirations, etc...just aren't there and haven't been for years and i'll never see that rich batch of stuff to pull from again so, unfortunately, it's over.  stuff will still eek out on my bandcamp page though ( ) but stuff that was recorded years ago, b-side type tracks etc.
"the marriage of beauty and blood" will see (in it's uncompleted state) release here as well in the form of two downloads.  some of the material is 'newer', but remember the album was started in 2005 so you have an idea of the time frame in which most was recorded.  the abrupt interruption (or end) of this album was really the end of the project.
anyway, it's old stuff, even the cover art is over 15 years old.
all that nonsense being said, (as if anyone is still reading) i'm quite proud of what i did with this project for a while (though not enough) esp. "videre in somnis" and "beautiful death".  so yeah,  things will eek out...namely what i've mentioned.  thanks for reading.  you have better things to do, so get to it!
