Implode is an album by industrial group Front Line Assembly. The album was released through Metropolis on April 26, 1999.

Release[edit]

Implode was released on digipak CD[11] and via Zoth Ommog on gatefold cover sleeve double vinyl with limited circulation of 2,000.[12] The track "Torched" is featured in the 2002 horror film Resident Evil but not on the accompanying soundtrack.[13]

Singles[edit]

Implode was followed by the release of two singles. The single Prophecy includes the original version, a radio edit and a remix of the title track. "Unknown Dreams" is also featured as radio edit. "Paralysis" is a non-album track.[14] The second single, Fatalist, was released in different versions in Europe and North America. German label Zoth Ommog issued a four-track single that contains remixes of "Fatalist" (Rhys Fulber), "Retribution" (Front 242) and "Prophecy" (Haujobb) as well as non-album track "Deception".[15] The six track version was released for the Scandinavian countries through Energy and in the United States through Metropolis.[16] Additional tracks on this version are two remixes of "Fatalist" by Aqualite and Tribal Techno.
