ok, Corroded Disorder is not 'Tactical neural implant', that's true, but it's amazing what some people (say, Cevin Key, Bill Leeb...) could do without the technological innovation and facilities of today.
Of course, this cd cannot be compared with FLA's masterpieces (Caustic Grip, TNI, Hard Wired, Implode, Epitaph...), but it's an example of what grounds Leeb was treading to arrive at what he would do later. We can say that from 1989 'Gashed Senses & Crossfire' and especially since 'Caustic Grip' with Fulber as full member of the band, FLA marked a milestone in electronic music. Before that, Leeb and co experimented with electronic equipment and samples, mixed Gregorian chants (previous to Enigma (they had already been used in Skinny Puppy's 'Dig it' actually), hard beats, distorted voice, in a similar way to Front 242 but much harder and less catchy.
Corroded Disorder is a blend of 2 eps from 1988. Some songs are very good: 'Body Count', which is an anticipation of what was to come, 'Concussion', 'Lurid Sensation', which is a quite original EBM song (maybe the only song in which Leeb's voice leaves his usual deep voice for a moment: a scream), 'Obsession', quite 242ish, 'The Wrack', which sounds as if Kraftwerk's 'Man Machine' was filtered through a liquidizer (ha ha, horrid metaphor, I know), 'Headcase Fargone', with a quite weird bass beginning, 'Dark dreams', with the 'In the name of Jesus' sample, the same as used by Front 242 in the archiwellknown 'Welcome to Paradise'.Read more ›

yes, any fan of early industrial music will enjoy this, much more simple than later Front Line Assembly, but this is where it starts. Still aggressive and dancable... Read morePublished on May 19 2004
This album really showcases FLA's talents for cool melodies, original rhythms, and superb arangements. These guys are Total Package musicians. Read morePublished on Nov. 28 1999 by Matt Ross
