Pitchshifter condescension

Deviant is an album by the British industrial metal band Pitchshifter, released in 2000. It was a follow up to the commercially successful album, but was seen by the record label as a disappointment. Promotional videos by DOSE Productions were made for the tracks "Hidden Agenda" and "Dead Battery". The track "Everything's Fucked" was released for radio play in an altered version "Everything Sucks". Jello Biafra makes an appearance on the track "As Seen on TV". By March 2002, the album had sold 33,000 copies in the U.S, just over half the amount had sold at the same time.


Before Deviant was released a promotional sampler CD was released under the name 'Deviant Sampler',

Album cover

Pitchshifter's album cover used a picture of one of Gee Vaucher's Paintings, who did artwork for Crass and Carcass. The painting shows a cross between the Pope John Paul II and Queen Elizabeth II. The album cover was banned in Poland, due to some of the public's response and complaints to the offending image saying "Why did you insult the Pope?!". The band and MCA Records apologized and changed the artwork.
