Mindless Faith hails from Brooklyn and consists of the trio Jason, Exeris and Mindcage.  This east-coast industrial act has emerged from obscure beginnings beginning with their debut release The Silence and their follow-up album Manifest Destiny really kicked off their career in late 2000.  The subsequent years would bring many live gigs and numerous compilation appearances.  All of this exposure led them to sign with Metropolis Records for their next release in the USA and Dependent Records in Europe.  This third album is titled Momentum and continues to build on the success from their previous experience.

The success of this band can easily be attributed to their ability to take their own ideas and mold them into a mixture of hard-hitting industrial that is enjoyable on or off the dancefloor.  Their earlier works used many layers providing a harsh and pounding industrial style, but tracks like "Stars and Stripes and Satellites" and "Vultures" really helped define their sound for many years.

Over the years you can always count on hearing something from this band on the Gothic Paradise Club Mix.  Be sure to check out old and new selections here and jump on over to the band's website for updates, videos and other treats.


Momentum - Review

This latest album is truly exciting.  For many years we were able to enjoy Manifest Destiny and I wasn't sure when we would ever hear anything new, but it was a pleasant surprised to hear of this new release on Metropolis Records.  As soon as I put it in my CD player I knew we were in for another set of forceful, industrial tracks.

From the onset of the first selection "Canaan", the powerful beats and multi-layered synths pulsate throughout the music.  The more I listen to this extremely powerful album, the more it grows on me and the more I like it.  I just can't get enough of the grooves in the aptly named "Spektral Groove mix" of "So Much For Salvation" which the original appeared on Manifest Destiny.  This mix is really catchy and just drags the listener right in.  There are several of these subdued tracks, some of which are instrumentals and others with subtle lyrics and samples.  "Looking for something that isn't there" has quickly become a favorite of mine with it's trip-hop beat and smooth hypnotic sound.

While these smooth tracks are excellent and catchy, I think that most fans will really enjoy the absolutely driving sounds of the previously mentioned "Canaan", "Singular" and the title track "Momentum".  This almost sums up their career so far and and this album with the driving beat and fast-paced rhythms.  So I think there is a little bit of everything here for everyone and they do it well in one package.

I have to say that this band has really capitalized on something great here with this album.  They've built on the best elements from the past including styles and similarities to popular industrial bands like NIN and Skinny Puppy.  It all comes together so well in this work.  And if you haven't caught their previous releases, be sure to check them out too if you enjoy this one.
