God Module
God Module
God Module combines elements of EBM, Techno, Darkwave, Goth and Synth Pop to create a style of music that is as powerful as it is melodic. Pounding beats mix with unforgettable synth hooks, deranged film samples and creatively effected vocals to make up the sound that has undeniably become their own.

In 1999 Jasyn Bangert began creating electronic music under the name God Module. After 2 demos were sent to a mere handful of labels, God Module quickly inked a deal with Canadian based Inception Records. In 2000 the debut God Module CD Artificial was released in North America and immediately licensed to the German label Trisol for Europe. The CD received rave reviews from fans, DJs, and the music press worldwide.

The time in between this release and the follow up to Artificial was filled with change for the band. Jasyn not only made the decision to dismiss the other original member of God Module but also to leave Inception Records. Both decisions were made for the simple reason of insuring the future survival of God Module. As time passed both have proven to be very good choices for the band.

In 2002, God Module released the Perception EP on their new North American label Sector 9 Studios and their new European label Out Of Line Music. In addition to working with the new labels, Jasyn was now working with two new members of the band, Courtney Bangert and Byron C. Miller. While Jasyn still continued as the main programmer/writer/vocalist in the studio environment, Byron made a welcome addition to God Module in a live capacity. Courtney, who had appeared on all previous God Mod releases now simply stepped up her position as the female voice of God Module as well as a live keyboardist.

The second full length God Module CD Empath was released in 2003. The CD's title reflected a departure from the SCI FI themes of the debut God Module album and focused on an area far more personal to it's creator than exposed on earlier works. Empath was "A place where abstract emotion intertwines with the beauty and horror of human life." The year 2003 also saw the European debut of God Module live at the GothAM festival in Amsterdam closely followed by their German debut at Wave Gothic Treffen in Leipzig. The year ended with God Module headlining the UK festival INFEST Saturday with VNV Nation headlining Sunday.

God Module returned to Europe in 2004 to promote the successful re-release of their debut CD Artificial 2.0 with a full European tour with label mates Decoded Feedback. Later in the year God Module released the EP Victims Among Friends on Out Of Line and returned to Germany to take part in the Out Of Line Electro festivals along with Hocico, Icon Of Coil, System Syn and Spetsnaz. These shows were filmed by the Hamburg based Crazy Clips TV show and released on DVD as the Electroline Festival DVD on Out Of line Music and Metropolis Records.

October 2005 saw the release of God Module's eagerly anticipated third full length CD, Viscera. Easily the most brutally melodic sonic-assault yet to be created by the band, Viscera takes you deeper into the world within Jasyn's head than ever before. Tracks ranging from relentlessly aggressive dance floor assaults to violently beautiful mid tempo laments, made Viscera an unforgettable album.

Following no preconceived musical rules, Jasyn Bangert erratically experimented with various electronic music styles on their 2007 album, Let's Go Dark. From the scary grooves of the opening track "Spooky" to the female voiced, 80's inspired sounds of "Corpses" to the brainwashing dance hooks of "EVP" and the epic dark melodies of the instrumental "Falling," the progress and further maturity of the God Module sound is impossible to ignore.

Being one of the original purveyors of Spooky Dance Music©, God Module still know how to do it best. Eerie synth lines, crushing beats, and vocals that change from a whisper to a subdued growl at the blink of an eye are just a few things that describe all things God Module. As a teaser to their upcoming 2010 album, Metropolis is proud to present The Magic In My Heart Is Dead EP. Featuring four new tracks and six remixes, the EP also contains a cover of Gary Numan's "Me, I Disconnect From You."
Finite Automata
Finite Automata
Finite Automata is an Experimental/Industrial project originally from Pensacola Florida. While their early sound was very reminiscent of Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly and Project Pitchfork, their more recent endeavors have fused elements of classic electro-industrial and EBM, with elements of Aggrotech and Industrial Rock. They are known for their highly confrontational and controversial stage shows, which make heavy use of theatrics, makeup, stage props, sharp objects and various noise making devices. In the fall of 2013, the group relocated to Atlanta Georgia.

Formed in 2006 by Mod Eschar (Dom Price), the project grew out of a chaotic solo act in which Eschar was the only consistent member until early 2007, when he was joined by long time friend and keyboardist c. Grendel (Chris Stanley). The two were later joined on an off by guitarist and gadgetrist Mat Syn and for a short time, guitarist Vic Martinez. In late 2010, they were briefly joined by programmer/keyboardist Thomas Carpenter, who added a more Terror Noise influence to the project's over all sound. Today Eschar is the only remaining founding member, and is joined by Scott Storey (Formerly of Voodoo Velkro, Skabdriver) and Sidney Pirara (Saint Simian, Formerly of Dawn of Ashes)

The group's name is a reference to a concept in Computer Science related to finite state machines and their predefined behaviors, alluding to Humans as such machines and their behavior as being predictable in nature.

The band's career grew in earnest in 2010, with an invitation by Ludovico Technique front-man Ben V to play The Florida Underground Industrial Music Festival, which solidified their presence in the Southeast Industrial scene. In 2012, Finite Automata released Recurse, their first full length studio album and is currently in the process of writing for their follow-up release "Dogma Eye" slated to be released some time in 2015. Over the course of their career, they have shared the stage with Combichrist, William Control, Davey Suicide, Slick Idiot, God Module, and The Ludovico Technique.
