Medication for the Misinformed
Physical CD Download
In the shadows of Washington DC and its criminal regime, Mindless Faith returns with Medication for the Misinformed - a lethal dose of dark electronics and industrial anthems, laced with heavy beats and charged vocals. After years of war and campaigns of misinformation, it is still politics as usual in the "land of the free". The media is still for sale and the citizen-consumers are still prey to the trappings of pop culture...an opiate of the masses who don't even realize they're addicts. But the images on the screen are only a placebo, if not a poison.
Against this mindless status quo, Medication for the Misinformed is a musical shot in the arm and a socially-provocative slap in the face. Shadowland.no says the sound is "all power, fury, and drive," even when elements of world music, ambient, and trance are fused into the industrial-strength mix of noise, distorted synths, and abrasive guitars. To the extent that such diversity crossed into schizophrenia on previous releases, Mindless Faith have worked these different elements into a cohesive framework and trademark sound on Medication for the Misinformed. Reviews are starting to come in, especially in the German magazines where Medication for the Misinformed has been called "a varied and thrilling piece of work which you should listen through from beginning to end" (Zillo) and "a perfect mix of power and atmospheric tightness and the most impressive Electro-Industrial import in years.” (Negatief)
"Album of the Month" "An extremely diverse affair with an apocalyptic flair. 'Medication For The Misinformed" is a well-produced, varied and captivating work, which can and should be listened to from start to finish. A must-buy for fans of electro-guitar crossover." - Zillo Magazine
"Newcomer of the Month" "... the Americans thoroughly dust off the coffer of electro and present with their latest work not the usual fare but a pile of multi-faceted compositions that will get many an electro fan's blood pumping." - Orkus Magazine
"Beautiful, forbiddingly menacing and nasty. Catchy and cross-grained. This release finds the US trio playing with the full range of musical expression. A candid style and an acute sense for how to craft a song from a conglomeration of sound makes 'Medication For The Misinformed' an outstanding album. 9/10" - Gothic Magazine
"... hard, icey, and deeply cynical lyrics, packaged in cutting edge, invidious industrial. 'Medication For The Misinformed' is an excellent work, hard, intelligent, and enthralling in typical American Industrial style, and one which is sure to win the hearts of the fans." - whiskey-soda.de
"...here is a band clearly on their way to the top. If this album isn't a massive hit with the hard electro crowd, the end is truly nigh." - uselinks.de
"THE modern sound of Elektro/Industrial-Crossover! The new album rocks!" - elektrauma.de
