Biography

Detroit, United States

Celldweller, based in Detroit, Michigan, is the versatile outlet of the artist, performer, producer, songwriter, programmer, and remixer Klayton. It began as a producer pseudonym in the early 90’s, amongst his many other projects including Circle of Dust, Argyle Park, Brainchild and Angeldust, the latter with Criss Angel on vocals (later reissued and renamed simply as Criss Angel albums). Now, over a decade later, Klayton (born Scott Albert) uses the name to deliver his vision of progressively combining multiple genres of music. Taking a unique approach to mixing styles, Celldweller fuses the electronics of drum & bass, Electro and techno, with rock and orchestral elements, meshing the synthetic and the organic, darkness with beauty, into a cohesive blend entirely its own.

In 2003, Klayton independently released the self-titled debut Celldweller album, and reached 17 on the Billboard Internet Sales Chart. The album garnered Top 40 Metal Radio charting, and the track “I Believe You” reached 11 on the R&R Alternative Specialty Show Chart. The debut album also received 7 awards at the 2004 Just Plain Folks Music Awards, including: Producer of the Year and Album of the Year. Guest appearances included Jarrod Montague of Taproot and mixes by Ben Grosse and Grant Mohrman.

    Also Klay's ex-live guitarist, K3M 53cK5d11N (Kem Secksdiin or previously Subkulture), is pretty fucking talented, if you liked Celdweller's self-titled, you're gonna love that guy, believe me. Sad not many know about him.

    The new stuff is awful? Lol, you have some really shifted perception, for it's amazing compared to the previous album - most of the Blackstar album was garbage, parts which were supposed to be heavy were replaced with dub-step bullshit bass, plus some crappy tunes and effects reminiscent of some girly MTV-pop shit, maybe only 4 out of 17 songs are good, and that's fucking pathetic compared to the self-titled masterpiece! (screw you, we will always compare!) But I like the direction he chose for the End of an Empire, good songs, hope he keeps the rest of the album this way.
