Front Line Assembly (FLA) is a Canadian electro-industrial band formed by Bill Leeb in 1986 after leaving Skinny Puppy. Influenced by early Industrial acts such as Cabaret Voltaire, Portion Control, D.A.F., Test Dept, SPK, and Severed Heads, FLA has developed its own unique sound while combining elements of EBM. The band's membership has rotated through several members over the years, including Rhys Fulber and Michael Balch who are both associated with several other successful artists.

Tactical Neural Implant is an album by electro-industrial artists Front Line Assembly. Third Mind Records originally released it in 1992 on both compact-disc and LP formats. The album has also been issued by Roadrunner in a two-disc set that includes the Millennium album.

Tactical Neural Implant veers away from the more abrasive elements found on the Caustic Grip album: vocals, while heavily effected, are often paired with vocoders and slightly more melodic elements. Sampling continued to figure heavily in FLA's sound, though its usage had evolved somewhat - not only were FLA taking from film (Robocop 2 and Exorcist III, for instance) but also from other musical recordings - "Bio-Mechanic" opens with a sample from New Order's "Cries and Whispers".

The album contains what some reviewers regard as some of Front Line Assembly's best songs, including the singles "The Blade" and "Mindphaser".
