Front Line Assembly: Rock Me Amadeus

A heavy load of industrial music history is included in this fresh single and video for Front Line Assembly's frantic revision of the 1985 pop classic, Rock Me Amadeus, a worldwide hit for Austrian singer and songwriter, Falco.

First, there is Front Line Assembly themselves, a pioneering figure for the industrial genre who have just released their nineteenth studio album, Wake Up The Coma, a fully realized work that features contributions from Robert Görl (DAF), Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost), and Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks, Cocksure).

Then there is Jimmy Urine of the New York City electropunk greats, Mindless Self Indulgence, who offers his cheeky vocal on the song's new take, and finally, director Jason Alacrity who has shot clips for Combichrist, Astrid, Skinny Puppy, and Stripped Polaris is responsible for the eighties-inspired, colorful, yet, rather freaky accompanying visual.

More than thirty year after the band's formation, FLA are still active, animated and evidently capable, as their deftness is written all over the new fun rendition of Rock Me Amadeus.
