Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust will release a new single ‘Phoenix’ on Sept. 18th.

“Phoenix” was born for cloudless days careening down an open highway in a rented T-top — come on, you’re not going to abuse your own car, are you? Punch it! – Loudwire

Scandroid’s signature style collides with old school metal on “Phoenix,” a blazing piece of guitar-driven music that rocks the foundation of the artist’s discography. This is Scandroid through and through, but not like you’ve heard him before, as crunchy riffs and soaring guitar solos deliver a high-octane listening experience. With its blend of ‘80s heavy metal and cyberpunk-infused synthwave, “Phoenix” is one more example of Scandroid’s versatile songwriting ability. Continue reading »

When the album “Machines of Our Disgrace” released in 2016, the first new album from Circle of Dust in nearly 20 years, many believed this to be a one-time return for Klayton (picture) to release under the moniker. Now in late 2017, “Dust to Dust,” marks the first new single from Circle of Dust‘s forthcoming 6th full-length, yet to be titled, studio-album.

‘Dust to Dust’ continues where “Machines of Our Disgrace” left off, as a modern industrial assault of thrash metal riffs, cryptic audio samples, aggressive vocals, blasting beats and memorable hooks.
