    Sub is the debut album by Swiss Industrial metal band Apollyon Sun, released in 2000 on Mayan Records. Work on a full album, Sub began at London's Trident Studios in 1998, with renown producer Roli Mosimann. Further recording and mixing sessions took place at Manhattan's EastSide Sound, London's Nomis Studios, and at various studio locations in Switzerland. Sub features prominent final mixes by Mosimann, John Fryer, and Apollyon Sun themselves. Sub was released globally through Mayan Records in late summer 2000, after two years of studio work. "Human III" continues from a song developed by Tom Gabriel Fischer, following on from "Human" from Celtic Frost's Morbid Tales and "Human II" from Celtic Frost's Cold Lake. "Messiah" is a remake of the Hellhammer song Messiah. Hellhammer being one of Tom Gabriel Fischer's former bands. "Reefer Boy" and "Concrete Satan" both appeared on the God Leaves EP, however they have been completely re-recorded for Sub. There are several unreleased songs from these sessions including "Cradle", a re-recorded version of “God Leaves” and two further instrumentals.
