Biography

Mindless Faith has emerged as one of the true, rising forces in the underground. Their perfect balance of intricate electronic arrangements, grinding textures, and explosive beats creates an industrial-EBM sound that impassions fans around the world. Where a lot of bands stick to formulas, Mindless Faith push the envelope with their diversity, giving each song its own pace and mood while incorporating elements from different genres. As Side-Line Magazine noted, “the music has been worked out with intelligence, creativity, and knowledge.”

With the release of MANIFEST DESTINY, Mindless Faith delivered one of the strongest and most noteworthy albums of 2000. The CD is a conceptual, thematic soundscape that confronts the social dynamics leading a nation to rampant expansion and imminent collapse. Praised as “…an all out war on your body, mind, and soul” and “worth 10 orgasms,” MANIFEST DESTINY received rave reviews in countless online and printed publications, including a 5 out of 5 in Outburn Magazine. Legends Magazine called it, “An infectious, riveting ensemble… a truly insurmountable sound experience!” And Starvox.net exclaimed, “There is no shortage of excellent production quality and sound nor creative style and talent to be found anywhere on this album. I could not possibly begin to sing enough praise to do Mindless Faith the justice they deserve.”

Mindless Faith brings this musical excellence to the stage with intense, dynamic live performances - touring the East coast and performing with Spahn Ranch, Pigface, Switchblade Symphony, Flesh Field, Genitorturers, Godhead, Hanzel und Gretyl, Acumen Nation, Bile and many others. Against a backdrop of synchronous, manipulated video and pulsating lights, Mindless Faith hammers out beats on electronic percussion and metal objects, propelling crowds into a frenzy. Infectious keyboards and guitars meld with powerful vocals to complete the aural assault that continuously expands their devoted fanbase.

They appear on over 16 national/international compilations such as The Unquiet Grave V. 3 (Cleopatra), “Nod’s Tacklebox o’ Fun” (Reconstriction), and in Europe on “Elektrauma V. 5” (Triton Records), New Forms of EBM V. 1 (Bloodline), Cryonica Tanz V.1 (Cryonica). Their music has also been featured in the movie Sex, Death and Eyeliner(from the producers of “The Prophecy” and “Drive”), several independent films, a CD-ROM for Canon, and MTV’s “Road Rules” and “Road Rules/Real World Challenge.”

Mindless Faith’s third full length CD titled ”Momentum” was released in 2004 to North America on Metropolis Records and in Europe on Dependent Records, where it debuted at #7 on the DAC - German Alternative Charts! The CD received rave reviews and the band was featured in all the top European magazines covering these styles of music, including being Sonic Seducer’s “Band of the Month!”

”Momentum” has also been a favorite in clubs through North America, Europe, and beyond. While the new CD focuses more on the dance floor, it still retains the diversity and songwriting that separate the band from the rest.

Mindless Faith remixed two Nine Inch Nails songs: ‘Only’ and ‘The Hand That Feeds’ from the album ‘With Teeth’. They won a number of radio remix contests in doing so, and met Trent Reznor as part of the prize, who said their remix was ‘better than some I’ve paid for’.

2007 saw the release of their latest album ‘Medication For The Misinformed’, which has garnered much critical praise.
