Lead Into Gold – Age Of Reason – Vinyl Record

Age of Reason is the debut album by the industrial music project Lead Into Gold. It was released in 1990 and is the sole full-length release from the project.

Lead Into Gold was the solo project of musician Paul Barker, who is best known as a founding member and bassist of the industrial rock band Ministry. Age of Reason features Barker’s exploration of industrial and electronic sounds, incorporating heavy beats, distorted guitars, and atmospheric textures.

Lead into Gold derives its name from the mystical practice of alchemy. The band is basically a solo project for Paul Barker, a talented and avant-garde bassist who joined forces with Alain Jourgensen in the late ’80s to create several influential and powerful Ministry.

Paul and Roland Barker, as well as frequent future collaborator Bill Rieflin, played in a Seattle-based band called the Blackouts. When the Blackouts inked with Wax Trax! Jourgensen (already operating under the Ministry moniker) immediately partnered with Barker and the pair unleashed a multitude of vehicles including RevCo, 1000 Homo DJs, and Lard.

Jourgensen and Barker dubbed themselves Hypo Luxa and Hermes Pan (respectfully and respectively) after a pair of free-wheeling Greek prostitutes. In the midst of this plethora of pounding, Lead into Gold emerged as Barker’s baby. He wrote and sang each cut on the sole full-length Age of Reason, as well as the extended singles, Faster Than Light, Idiot, and Chicks and Speed: Futurism

The album showcases a mix of aggressive, hard-hitting tracks and more atmospheric and experimental compositions. Barker’s vocals, often processed and distorted, add an additional layer of intensity to the music. The lyrical themes touch on introspection, societal issues, and the darker aspects of human nature.

Age of Reason has become a cult classic in the industrial music scene, appreciated for its blend of aggressive industrial rock and atmospheric soundscapes. While Lead Into Gold didn’t achieve the same level of commercial success as Ministry, the album remains a noteworthy release in Barker’s discography and an important contribution to the industrial music genre.

For fans of industrial and electronic music, Age of Reason offers a captivating and sonically diverse listening experience. It exemplifies the intensity and innovation of the industrial music movement of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
