Marking 30 years since its original release, a 2021 remaster of the genre-defining debut from Pitchshifter.
Creating stunning concoction of walls of unrelenting primal aggression with a punishingly stark and brutal sound, Pitchshifter had found a highly effective signature sound to build upon when they entered Lion Studios in Leeds, in September 1990 (with Industrial coming together in a mere 72 hour)s. Upon the album's release, the band found supported acts such as Napalm Death and Paradise Lost, and notably caught the attention of John Peel(who invited Pitchshifter to perform a prestigious Peel Session).
CD with a 12 page booklet including lyrics, rare photos, an overview of the early era of the band from Mark Claydon,and an additional interview conducted by writer Kevin Stewart-Panko.
Formed in Nottingham, UK, in 1989 by guitarist/programmer Johnny Carter and bassist/vocalist Mark Claydon, Mark’s brother Jon later joined the fold. From the band's pioneering early days along with the other seminal Industrial masters, Godflesh, Pitchshifter’s ascension throughout the 1990s culminated in the band becoming one of the UK’s biggest Metal exports around the new millennium, with a spell at Geffen and MCA Records helping Pitchshifter’s profile grow enormously. Their Deviant (2000) album reached number 39 in the billboard 200, and this also led to the band embarking on major tours, as well as playing at the renowned Ozzfest. From their more raw and primitive Metallic origins, Pitchshifter continued to expand its sound, experimenting with ideas such as drum and bass as they evolved.
