"Artist of the Week July 7th 2003"

FACELESS™ is a Rap-Core Nu-Metal Act which sounds like a Recipe for Success as spiced by influences similar to P.O.D. & Limp Bizkit. There is no doubt FACELESS™ Raps & ROX, they talk the talk because they can and do walk the walk, but there is much, much more to FACELESS™.

FACELESS™ sent us a 6-Song Sampler. As I noted, it Raps & ROX! I spent two days just trying to listen to it by myself but every time I put the CD everyone came running, bouncing & dancing around. As I'm writing this I can think of several CD's that had them begging to leave the room, but when FACELESS™ is in I can't get them out of the room. I want to turn it down & listen for every nuance but they just kept cranking it!!!

The discussions took them from Track #3-"Mirrors" to Tracks, #4-"Phatswang", as well as #5-"No Escape" & #6-"Next Oktoba" as their favorites. After two days, even now I have yet to get them out of here when I play FACELESS™, but they finally maintained enough for me to actually listen.

Track #2-"Drill" is HARD! So HARD in fact that I was/am concerned about its ability to penetrate POP Markets as America just doesn't go around saying "F@!K" (admittedly, one of my most used words) in their Daily or Prime Time Formats... not even on SNL or MAD TV. Definitely more for our College Circuit Projects. I knew & know Mirrors, Phatswang, No Escape & Next Oktoba are potential hits by the way my listening audiences responded but I'm going with TRACK #1-"Self Inflicted" as it best compliments the other Artists on Our 1st Compilation.

"FACELESS - The F.I.T.H. Syndrome"

This is a four headed alternative nu-metal act from Australia and my friend James II from the League Of Rockers department in America wants me to review it, which is absolutely no problem to me. The band worked hard for their first six months together and released a self funded E.P. called "Stare Inside My Mind". There was a limited press of only 500 copies made and within 3 single months, all copies sold out. They did many live shows, in early 2001 they were part of the Queensland Rock Awards where they stranded in the top 10 over 100 other acts. Faceless were also included on the UK compilation CD entitled "Visibility - A Visible Noise Sampler" alongside 15 other bands from UK and Europe, take part on the Surf And Travel Australia Video and also recorded a new track for the Krankit 2001 compilation vol.2 CD with the song called "Teeth". Finally it was time for another 6 track EP in 2002 with the title "The Fith Syndrome" included 6 tracks . The album is currently unreleased as the band are seeking support to gain distribution and promotion for its release. The songs on this EP are very well played and produced with a lot of energy and power, but as many people well knows, this is not my favourite style of Metal. Nu-metal freaks will loves this band a lot, so watch out for Faceless. - Metal To Infinty

"FACELESS"

A self-proclaimed "Nu Metal" band hailing from Australia has hit the mark. I was truly impressed with their Demo. International market bands have it rough. It’s a monumental task for them to break in the U.S., while for a U.S. band to break overseas its quite a bit easier. These guys don't miss a beat, with multiple releases and inventive song writing they are sure to make an impact on the international music scene.

Bio

Since the formation of FACELESS in the year 2000, the band have cemented their place as one the hardest working independent bands ever to emerge out of South East Queensland. They have independently produced and released two EP’s including “Stare Inside My Mind” and “The F.I.T.H. Syndrome”, the later of which gained national distribution through “MGM”. In addition, FACELESS have also appeared on three compilation CD’s including “Krankit 01 Vol.2”, “Visibility” which was released by “Visible Noise Records” in the United Kingdom and “A Taste of Our Rock Hard Lyx” which was released by The Rolling Rochaus in the U.S.A.

The music of FACELESS has also made its way onto the soundtrack of two Australian Film releases. The first, a documentary about the Australian surfing scene titled “Surf & Travel Australia”, contained 4 of the 5 tracks from their debut EP “Stare Inside My Mind”. And more recently the tracks “Self Inflicted” and “Mirrors” from “The F.I.T.H. Syndrome” EP appeared on a Moto-X film titled “Risk Assessment”.

FACELESS have also played an extensive list of live shows throughout South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales. These included monthly appearances at prominent live venues including The Surfers Paradise Beergarden, The Troccadero Entertainment Complex and Her Majesties Basement. During which time they have supported national acts 28 Days, Rollerball, Japunga, Devolved, and Three Point Tilt.

Currently FACELESS are writing and rehearsing new material in anticipation for a full length album release later this year. They have 20 new tracks already written and have just recorded 5 tracks as a demo for interested record labels and management companies. The new tracks showcase the musical variety and growth of FACELESS as not just a heavy metal act but as a group of musicians with a variety of songs including nu-metal, hard rock, rock ballads and hardcore. That’s not to forget the subtle hints of jazz, blues, rap and hip-hop that the individual members fuse together to create the unique sound that is FACELESS!
