  1. Disengage

    Disengage is third and final album by Circle of Dust released in 1998. Klay Scott began to work on the album soon after a brief departure from Angeldust, a music/magic project he and Criss Angel collaborated on together. After Circle of Dust's contract with R.E.X. expired, Klay Scott took the band to Flying Tart Records. Seven remixes for "Chasm" and "Refractor" were produced. Klayton intended to release the remixes on a single separate CD entitled Circle of Dust - Refractor/Chasm Remixes however, this attempt was shot down by the label. The remixes were instead inserted in the album. After completing Disengage and disbanding Circle of Dust, Klayton went on to work on his next project Celldweller.
