Since their inception, the group have produced over a dozen studio albums and EPs, several of which have charted on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Album chart. Their 1992 album Tactical Neural Implant is considered a classic among industrial music fans. They have also produced soundtracks for video games such as Quake III: Team Arena and AirMech. Initially FLA integrated guitars into their sound, either sampled or as live guitars, then in 2012 they reverted to making exclusively electronic music. Standout albums include Caustic Grip, Tactical Neural Implant, Hard Wired, Implode and Artificial Soldier.
