It was 20 years ago that Canadian industrial legends Front Line Assembly unleashed one of the most lauded and respected albums in the genre: Hard Wired. It was an album that revolutionized and upended the electronic world, redefining and rewriting the rules. And now, after two decades, the album will be remastered and rereleased with a whole bevy of additional goodies.
Artoffact Records has put together an insane 6LP boxset that features the album on 2LP vinyl, Live Wired, the band’s 1996 live album, on 3LP vinyl, and lastly the Circuitry single on 1LP. All of these albums were remastered from the original tapes by Greg Reely and Bill Leeb. Everything comes packaged in a deluxe lift-off lid style vinyl-sized collector’s box.
Metal fans should remember that Devin Townsend was the man behind the guitars on this album, so you’ll hear his crunchy goodness!
To celebrate this amazing release, we’re premiering the full Hard Wired remastered album stream, which you can hear below! It’s got all the songs AND an additional track, the “Circuitry Predator Mix”!
There are only going to be 300 copies available worldwide, 150 with blue vinyl and 150 with deluxe clear/red effect version. So make sure to pre-order your copy of the Hard Wired 20th anniversary 6LP boxset via Storming The Base.
