Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Music of Klayton with Special Guest Todd

We’ve got a very special Chapter this month, featuring an in-depth look at an extremely prolific artist: the man known only as Klayton. As the brains behind bands like Immortal, Circle of Dust, Celldweller, and Scandroid, Klay has raised the bar for industrial metal and dark dance production. Ed is a huge fan of his work, and he’s invited his friend Todd along so they can share some of their favorite music and introduce Justin to his incredible music. Join us for a chronological journey through some of the most unique and listenable industrial music around!
