Front Line Assembly

Front Line Assembly was the best known of the various electronic music projects undertaken by the prolific Vancouver-based duo of Bill Leeb (vocals, synthesizers) and Rhys Fulber (synthesizers, samplers). After working in the mid-'80s under the pseudonym Wilhelm Schroeder with Skinny Puppy, the Austrian-born Leeb formed the industrial/techno-based Front Line Assembly in 1986 with Fulber -- who initially joined on as a studio assistant -- and synth player Michael Balch. After a handful of compilation appearances and cassette-only releases, Front Line Assembly issued its first three full-length efforts -- The Initial Command, State of Mind, and Corrosion -- on a monthly basis between December 1987 and February 1988. Later in 1988, Corrosion, a subsequent mini-album titled Disorder, and a number of exclusive bonus tracks were compiled and released as Convergence.

In 1989, the group returned with the album Gashed Senses & Crossfire, which contained the dance-flavored singles "Digital Tension Dementia" and "No Limit." A European tour in support of the record yielded a live album -- titled simply Live -- that was released and deleted on the same day in a limited edition of 4,000 pressings. After Balch departed Front Line Assembly in 1990, Fulber stepped in as a full partner; the streamlined duo soon released the electro-styled album Caustic Grip, while 1992's Tactical Neural Implant found the group's music moving in a harder-edged disco direction. By 1994, the sound evolved yet again, with the album Millennium displaying a newfound reliance on guitars; both the title track and "This Faith" scored as club hits. Fulber departed the lineup by 1997, while his replacement Chris Peterson debuted with 1998's Monument. Implode appeared one year later. Sticking with a heavy dose of synth pop trance and throbbing melodies, Leeb and Peterson issued Epitaph in fall 2001. Rhys Fulber returned for the 2001 album Civilization and remained for the 2006 release Artificial Soldier, which found guitarist/keyboardist Jeremy Inkel joining the band. The remix album Fallout followed in 2007. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Front Line Assembly is so sick! I love this band. They should do a tour with KISSING IN GRAVEYARDS
One of the trifecta of my most favored Industrial outfits in the eighties along with Front242&Ski n n y Puppy, I am very pleased to have discovered them back then and continue to greatly enjoy their efforts to present day.
:-)
WOW VERY COOL ...Kinda missed out on this band...busy listening to tons of other stuff..they would have fit tight in.. then head to buy everything
Shoot he said '1989' ............ Crap
I was born in 1998
I saw them in Houston last year. I met Bill and Jarred. Reallygood guys! Good show and i have rocked them since 1989! I will continue to do so!!
Loved their edgy electronic industrial, especially more so in Kontrol Factory back in the 90's. Their other project of Noise Unit also had a few great hard edge techno dance songs. Saw them, and met them when they played live in Hollywood in the 90's Thrill Kill Cult, and my buddy's band Contagion Pcb. So many great memories.
FLA....final l y am "getting it". ;)
One of my favorite bands. Electronic Industrial pioneers. Genius.
deep, sharp, uptempo beats, this is eargasmic
One of the best bands who ever excisted. Driving beats melodic rhythyms. soul distorting sounds inspired by god or satan im not quite sure.
Check out their side project called WILL - sounds very old, celtic or viking-like. Might be hard to find by now...
yearoftherab b i t s 1
I think I might poop my pants, I own almost every album and not a stawker!
HUMILIATION! ! ! ! !
oops someone already said that. But still
My heroes !
Ya gotta hear the new single Angriff... Truly beast.

I used to love FLA, but I'm afraid that after I figured out it sounds nearly identical to the Delerium I overplayed in my youth, it's hard to hear _industrial_ in here -- all I hear is the same stuff Sarah McLachlan sang over. Perhaps Delerium was a necessary step for me to get to industrial, but it sadly corrupted the far better FLA for me. :(
Sick
A little underwhelmed by the live show I saw recently, either far too much overly-loud guitar or far too little synth puppetry. Either way, it was missing something. I'll always have the albums to console me though.
I've been in love with FLA since 95' and I must say that FLA is one of the greatest industrial bands out there. I understand that bands and groups evolve, but album after album FLA creates a unique atmosphere in their musical style, but plant their foot prints into my heart each time! Gotta love the FLA!
The great thing about FLA is they change with the time. Every album is different and you don't know what to expect...oth e r then awesome, in-depth music that never grows old.
ahh memories
I've been listening to these guys since they began. I have all their early stuff. Looks like I need to catch up on their later work. All of it is superb. Consistent, amazing performers. They kick A**!!!
great band live as they are in studio.. been following FLA since the early 90's and i must say after all these years FLA still kicking a**, good work boys ..
donovan138
it's largely because of FLA that I got into the scene as a musician instead of just a fan.I spent many MANY hours listening to them and figuring out tips and tricks for sequencing.. w h e n I met them sometime after getting (a little) established I made sure to tell them that too..unfortu n a t e l y bill is not the most social person in the world (which I completely understand), but the rest of the band was really nice to me and we still make a huge point to touch base now and again to trade new tricks a
kicks industrial a** and keeps puttin out great s**t
sbholl84
FLA is the real deal. Constantly evolving and changing, but never losing the edge. Big up.
damn right, the new s**t is still as good as the old, kept with the times and stayed themselves, f**kin genious s**t
I agree that the old stuff is just as good as the new stuff or is it that the new stuff is just as good as the old? Makes no difference to me. Love Front Line!

How many bands can boast 20 years of *good* music, let alone an industrial band. Front Line and Skinny Puppy, although Front Line has been more consistent and regular in continuing to release music. Caustic Grip, Virus, Tactical Neural Implant are incredible, and yet Millennium, Total Terror and Hard Wired don't fail to impress.
Maniacal, Backlash, Beneath the Rubble, Electric Dreams, Prophecy, and a few others are simply golden.
The old stuff is as good as the new stuff. Priceless music.
Yes they did miss some of their earlier stuff
kind of hit or miss for me on some of the songs. but i was just listening to back lash and thats diffenitely a hit.
One of the best industrial pioneers of all time. Millennium, Hard Wired, and Tactical Neural Implant are some of the best albums. Everyone needs to get a copy of "Live Wired" (live footage, interviews, videos) which has been one of my strongest influences as an industrial musician for 20 years now.
//////////Wa r r i o r
i like state of mind
why dont they have state of mind?
why does pandora so often skip the best work in an artist/bands career?
Every time I hear them it's like pressing a big red shiny WIN button.
Front Line Assembly, wether you love or hate them, will always be in a group with VNV Nation, Velvet Acid Christ, NIN, Juno Reactor, Ministry and Skinny Puppy in the forefront of modern Industrial.
One of the best Electronic artists out there. Resist is my favorite all time fave track.
:D my heroes
Bill Leeb and Chris Peterson are staples of Industrial and electronic music

true pioneers.... . i f only 1 day I get to see them (FLA) live ! ?

I have pretty much all there releases. I don't get into many other industrial bands, I can't get past FLA. I liked fear factory before I found FLA then realized the connection.
Great music...brin g s back memories when I lived in Lima Peru back in 1994.
I grew up as a heavy metal freak, but I've always appreciated good industrial. My definition of good, of course, requires loud, fast and crunchy (as you might expect of a metal-head) and since the first time I heard TNI, I've considered FLA the best of industrial. Seeing them at a club is a must - the mosh-pit was more brutal than a Slayer show. (The Palace in LA: FLA, Switchblade Symphony (why, god, why? f**king whiny goth crap), Spahn Ranch, and Kevorkian Death Cycle...tast y ! )
FLA is as dope as it gets.... my all-time favorite!!
FLA is the best true digital Industrial music out there. I saw them recently and they're just as good now as when I first saw them almost 15 years ago (gettin old). Very influential to my over all music taste. In fact if it wasn't for FLA I never would have gotten into Fear Factory :)
TNI is early 90s industrial at its' absolute best. What can be better? Though there recent releases are more of the same old same old predictable format I still have a place in my collection for them.
