REVIEWS OF NEW CD "MEDICATION FOR THE MISINFORMED"
"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
"The whole thing is packged in a mix of ultra-modern with loads of crooked beats and not always simple rhythms. The typical EBM structures are nowhere to be found here. It's easy to think of the genre heros as sort of old-fashioned after listening to Mindless Faith. The genre will be looking for a new top dog, and 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
"a musical shot in the arm, all power, fury, and drive:
the only medication you need!"- Shadowland.no
"Possibly their best work to date, Mindless Faith
steal the show with "Independence Day". Its rigid
percussion hits like a clock work sledgehammer to the
stomach, while fuzzy terse synths and clenched-jaw
verses give way to a rousing chorus highlighted by
guitar in a heroic display of power chords."

After a bit of a wait, Mindless Faith have come up to the plate with yet another stellar release to follow on the heels of their previous works, The Silence and Manifest Destiny. The artistry of this band is their ability to intertwine industrial elements with trance, EBM, rock, down-tempo and sizzling electronic stylization. Many have tried and most have failed but not so with Mindless Faith, a New York based underground band with a burgeoning following. The success of this outfit is due to the innate ability to stay fresh and vibrant all while keeping their finger on the pulsebeat of what the underground fans want to hear.
Lyrically, we are treated to a dark melange of songs ranging from existentialism such as Canaan, Momentum and So Much For Salvation to the throes of downtrodden lovelorn emotions as in This Is The Last Time, If Not Now, When? and Incubation.
13 tracks of pounding rhythm delivered with just enough sonic assault to make this one of the hottest releases to hit the underground club scene throughout the forthcoming Summer
"Mindless Faith's 'Plaything' treats us to the down and dirty
industrial fusion and rock elements that have begun to secure the band legions
of fans. For an independent band, this group champions their gigs like
consummate professionals and delivers the high octane energy in a live setting
as well as on a recorded medium such as this." Starvox Review of "The Best of Gothic

- "Mindless Faith waste no time with their first track
'Vultures', turning your world upside down as they hurdle you through the depths
of dark and chaotic post-industrial soundscapes. You can almost imagine yourself
caught in a post-apocalyptic landscape with Jasin and Chris Sevanick belting
against the backdrop of wasted and desolated factories still churning and
grinding, their giant metal cogs only to be commanded now by their music.
Thirteen tracks are featured on this album with my favorite being 'Stars &
Stripes & Satellites' with it's impressive build-up of chorus and beat. I
can only imagine the energy produced from one of their live performances." -
