Circle Of Dust  

Circle Of Dust is a one-man industrial metal project manned by Klayton (birth name Scott Albert, though he has performed under various stage names over the years and now legally goes by just Klayton). The music here (at least on the earlier material) is squarely in the Skrew/ Ministry mold of classic industrial metal. The discography is a particularly confusing one, with the debut album re-recorded and re-released in 1995 with the same title and artwork but with some different tracks, and the Brainchild album also released under the band name Brainchild and the title Mindwarp, as Brainchild was originally a Scott Albert side project. The band's earlier work was at least somewhat Christian-related (R.E.X. is a Christian record label), though later interviews with with Klayton indicated he was disillusioned with the Christian metal scene. After Circle Of Dust dissolved around 1998, Klayton founded the successful Celldweller project, though he stated in early 2016 that there would be new Circle Of Dust material released later in the year.
