With the release of their long-awaited 2nd CD, MINDLESS FAITH emerges to deliver one of the strongest and most noteworthy releases of the new millenium! They engage the perfect balance of inticate electronic arrangements, grinding textures, and explosive beats for a dynamic post-industrial sound that will draw you in with its emotion at one minute and beat you down with its intensity the next. With vocals that stick in your head and lyrics that make you think, MINDLESS FAITH's powerful new release is the shot in the arm the industrial scene has been waiting for.
Even prior to the official release, tracks from MANIFEST DESTINY were being prasied on mp3.com
stations! "...an all out war on your body, mind, and soul...drives jackhammer pulses into your legs and crushes the dancefloor below your feet..." And "worth 10 orgasms"!!! MANIFEST DESTINY also received a 5 out of 5 in Outburn Magazine!
Where a lot of bands stick to formulas, MINDLESS FAITH pushes the envelope with their diversity giving each song its own pace and mood. As Side-Line Magazine commented, "the music has been worked out with intelligence, creativity, and knowledge." Songs like So Much For Salvation and Eclipse capture the listener with slow, synthetic textures. The epic dancefloor anthem, Stars & Stripes & Satellites, builds up and explodes with its trance-like feel and the mechanical, dark ambient intro of Vultures gives way to a relentless hard techno assault. Shifting gears, Incubation bumps and grinds with a bass-heavy, sleazy rock sound straight out of your favorite fetish video, while Mere Pawn exudes traces of drum 'n bass and Descent fuses elements of EBM and cyberpunk.
The evolution of MINDLESS FAITH's sound since their critically acclaimed debut CD, "The Silence" (1996), can best be attributed to their impressive, high-energy live performances (check out the bonus CD-Rom video on MANIFEST DESTINY)! MINDLESS FAITH has made their presence felt - touring throughout the Norhteast to now devoted fans and sharing the stage with the likes of Sister Machine Gun, Spahn Ranch, Pigface, Switchblade Symphony, and many, many others.
The widely promoted "Distention - AlterCulture Records Label Sampler", along with 8 other comp. appearances including "Nod's Tacklebox o' Fun" (Reconstriction), "Darkness and the Machine V. 2" (Carpe Mortem), and "Elektrauma V. 5" (Triton Records, Belgium), offered glimpses of the potential of this up-and-coming band. But with MANIFEST DESTINY, MINDLESS FAITH establishes themselves as one of the rising forces in the underground.
