Mindless Faith (US)

Bit of a departure and throwback today.  Just like any genre, there is a lot of terrible electronic music out there.  Fortunately, there are also some diamonds in the rough: Skinny Puppy, Ministry, Throbbing Gristle, etc.  If I asked most industrial fans to name the group they most associate with tongue-in-cheek, nihilistic ethos, I'm willing to bet most would name KMFDM.  However, there is another group of similar style that I feel does a more concise job.  Enter Mindless Faith.  While they may not sport the discographies of their peers, quality certainly outweighs quantity.  Rebellious 90's-sounding atmosphere, growly vocals, catchy beats, and stunning synth work that manages to seamlessly fuse dark, gothic tones with rave-inducing melodies.  It's The Prodigy on DMT.  Just listen to the first track of Medication for the Misinformed (their best album imo) and you will hear what I am talking about.  If you like it, you won't be disappointed by the rest.  Throw these guys some support while you're at it.
