Front Line Assembly
released their Caustic Grip
album in 1990. It was the last album of theirs that Wax Trax!
released. It was a major success
and helped cement FLA's name in industrial music lore. It also helped the Third Mind
record label do a worldwide deal with Roadrunner
whereupon FLA's next couple of albums would be distributed/released through them. And during the 90s they also reissued various albums through Roadrunner
including licensing material to other labels in smaller territories around the world.
Collectors should look out for original editions on Wax Trax!
(USA) and Third Mind
(Europe) plus the usual American test pressing
. Reissues came through Third Mind
(Europe - 1992+1996), Wax
(USA - 1993) and Roadrunner
(Europe - 2007). The album was licensed by Roadrunner
for release in Poland
on cassette in the mid-nineties!
FLA released a lot of early material before their big hitting albums Gashed Senses And Crossfire
and Caustic Grip
. A lot of this material is now ~30 years old with the actual 30th anniversary of Disorder
coming up in May 2018!
and Total Terror
were pretty much reissued as Total Terror 1986 Part I
and Total Terror 1986\87 Part II
in 1993 and finally as Complete Total Terror
were pretty much reissued as Corroded Disorder
Finally, the original Live
album was released in 1989 but only on vinyl, only in the UK/Europe and only in limited quantities. It's never been reissued - find one if you can…
