  1. Submit

    Submit is an EP by the British band Pitchshifter, released in 1992. Fitting somewhere between an EP and a full-length album, it was the last album to feature Stuart Toolin in the band. While not as heavy as Industrial, the album is still more intense than any later releases, and is still firmly in the industrial metal genre, with a sound that has been compared to early Godflesh.
