Front Line Assembly

Front Line Assembly began in 1986, releasing several albums between 1988-92 that saw the group acknowledged as electronic/industrial/EBM scene heavyweights alongside Front 242, Nitzer Ebb and Skinny Puppy (Founder Bill Leeb had been a member of Skinny Puppy prior to forming FLA). The 1989 album, Gashed Senses & Crossfire (1989), was promoted with major tours that saw Rhys Fulber joining the band. Fulber and Leeb became a creative tour de force, creating the genre-defining classics Caustic Grip and Tactical Neural Implant in 1990 and 1992.

Front Line Assembly has always pushed the boundaries of the genre it helped define. Millennium and Hard Wired, saw the group flirt with industrial metal sounds in tandem with trademark electronics. 2013’s Echogenetic, incorporated elements of glitch and dubstep, creating a potent hybrid of their most successful pure electronic releases and blurred the boundary between electronic industrial and what is generally perceived as modern electronica.

The band’s latest album, Wake Up the Coma proves Front Line Assembly a fearless leading force in electro-industrial, with surprising new elements, such as a cover of Falco's Amadeus (feat. Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence), & contributions from Robert Gorl (DAF), Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost), & Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks, Cocksure).
