* FollowTheLeader: ''Industrial'' and ''Submit'' owe quite a bit to early-period Godflesh. It's even theorized that the blurred face on the cover of ''Industrial'' is that of Justin Broadrick. [[note]]Though unfortunately, this theory is in fact false. See ContemptibleCover above for more info on that.[[/note]]


A British industrial-metal (and later on, electronic-rock) band formed in 1989. Initially playing a minimalistic, sludgy, and very heavy variation of industrial metal reminiscent of ''Streetcleaner''-era Music/{{Godflesh}}, Pitch Shifter later added elements from electronica, such as drum 'n bass and jungle-inspired percussion, resulting in positive critical attention and relatively good (though still modest) sales for releases like ''www.pitchshifter.com''. Since their (to date) last album release ''PSI'' in 2002, the band has become largely dormant, only playing the occasional festival and releasing an EP, though there have been rumours of a new album flying around since 2009, with a new album scheduled for release in 2012.
