FEAR FACTORY picture
Fear Factory is an American industrial/groove metal band. The band formed in 1989 and have released seven full-length albums and a number of singles and remixes. Over the course of their career they have evolved from a succession of styles, as well as steadily pioneered a combination of the styles death metal, groove metal, thrash metal and industrial metal. The resultant sound proved to be enormously influential on the metal scene from the mid-90s and onwards. Their most recent album, Transgression, described as a more experimental and atypical effort, has also contained elements of pop music and progressive metal.

Fear Factory disbanded in March 2002 following some internal disputes, but they reformed later that year minus founding member Dino Cazares adding bassist, Byron Stroud, and casting then-bassist Christian Olde Wolbers as guitarist.

The band has toured with the likes of Black Sabbath, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Slayer, System of a Down,

FEAR FACTORY Reviews

FEAR FACTORY Obsolete

Album · 1998 · Industrial Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
After crafting a pretty decent industrial metal release in Demanufacture, Fear Factory's musical evolution would see them scaling back the death metal elements they'd originally cultivated and focusing more on the groove metal and alternative metal sounds which they'd started weaving into their sound, though not to such an extent as to take them out of the industrial metal sphere entirely. The end result was Obsolete, an album perfectly aligned to fit the groove/alt tendencies of the 1990s with that thick layer of industrial grime that was all the rage back then.

A calculated attempt at selling out? Maybe, maybe not - but it doesn't really matter, because as well as being a monster hit in sales terms it's also just a damn fun album, a breezily unpretentious little listen which retains more than enough metal ferocity to get you bopping your head to it and keeps things nice and accessible. If Fear Factory were selling out, we should wish more people sold out this effectively.

FEAR FACTORY Genexus

Album · 2015 · Industrial Metal

Kingcrimsonprog
2015’s Genexus is the Los Angeles Metal band Fear Factory’s ninth officially recognized full-length studio album proper (discounting compilations, rereleases, remix projects etc). It is the third album since guitarist Dino Cazares rejoined the band when Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera left. It is also the first album with Mike Heller on drums (although Deen Castronovo plays on single ‘Soul Hacker’) who the band made a point of getting to play live following an online controversy with the use of no human drummers on their previous record, The Industrialist.

For me, it doesn’t matter who played on it, what’s a real instrument and what isn’t; all that matters is if it is enjoyable and memorable. An album could be soullessly generated by a computer algorithm for all I care if it made me genuinely enjoy myself. This is definitely the most memorable and enjoyable album the band have released since 2004’s Archetype in my opinion. It sticks to the same futuristic lyrical well and imagery that the band are best known for, it contains plenty of the same staccato riffs synched-up with the kickdrum patterns that are the band’s trademark, and its got the same Burton C Bell clean/heavy splits… it all sounds very Fear Factory, but crucially the songs are fun, they stick out more, there’s no filler and there’s more bounce and groove than the last three records. It’s a Fear Factory album, and it’s a damn good one. Its not boring, its not repetitive and its not a failed experiment.

Imagine the verses from the band’s heavier album Mechanize, with the choruses from the band’s clean and commercial Transgression, topped with the balance, character and personality of Archetype. That’s the sort of ballpark the band are working in – its not a throwback album trying to recapture Demanufacture or Obsolete, its not a sell-out, its not an attempt to write their most brutal album ever… the band have kind of mixed different aspects from different eras together (Heck; there’s even one or two moments where the Rhys Fulber additions feel a bit like they did on Digimortal for a few seconds).

For me, that mix achieved here is an absolute winner. Having had time to live with the album and let it all really sink in, I feel that Genexus is one of the band’s very best albums, easily in the top half of their discography, and I’d be more than happy to see lots of these songs in live setlists and compilations from now on. Its not a throw-away album by any stretch of the imagination.

Highlights include the ridiculously bouncy single ‘Soul Hacker’ (the most outright fun Fear Factory song this side of ‘Edge Crusher’ or ‘Cyberwaste’), the brief and perfect ‘Church Of Execution’ as well as the crushing ‘Protomech’ and the quieter, more dreamy ‘Expiration Date,’ which almost reminds me of modern-day Anathema at times. Anything on the record is good though, there’s legitimately nothing I would delete or skip at all.

Fear Factory are such an underrated band who never really got their due. Compared to how historically important and influential they are (basically informing much of the music for the next decade), and considereing how any time Roadrunner Records does anything special there’s a Fear Factory connection in some way (boxset series, compilation series, 25th anniversary series, Drilling The Vein, Roadrunner United etc), or indeed just how many people have something positive to say about them… when they come play my city its never to an audience big or passionate enough to reflect this, and that’s kind of sad. I can’t see this album winning over a legion of new fans, I can’t see it thrusting the band to superstar status, but what it definitely can do is satisfy existing fans, cement the different eras of the band’s discography into a more sensible cohesive whole, and raise the band’s stock and hit-to-miss ratio in the right direction. Its one more top quality album to add to the list of good Fear Factory albums. It makes me excited about this band again and makes me feel validated and vindicated after sticking with them through different line-ups and stylistic shake ups of varying quality. It makes me want to talk about Fear Factory all the time again like I used to a decade ago. It makes me want to convert new fans. Most importantly of all, it makes me want to listen to it over and over.

In summary; it’s a mixture of Fear Factory’s heavier and lighter sides, done right, with memorable catchy songs full of character. Its one of the band’s better records to date and I highly recommend it to any existing or potential future fan without hesitation or qualification.

FEAR FACTORY Genexus

Album · 2015 · Industrial Metal

UMUR
"Genexus" is the 9th full-length studio album by US metal act Fear Factory. The album was released through Nuclear Blast America in August 2015. It´s the successor to "The Industrialist" from 2012, which was an album that received a lot of flak because of the use of drum programming istead of a human drummer. On "Genexus" the two main men behind the band Burton C. Bell (vocals) and Dino Cazares (guitar, bass) have brought in Mike Heller (Malignancy, System Divide, Azure Emote) to play the drums. Except on "Soul Hacker", which features Deen Castronovo (Journey) on drums.

Stylistically the music on the album is a combination of elements from a select cast of their previous releases. At various points during the playing time of the 10 track, 47:54 minutes long album (the digipack features 2 bonus tracks) I hear elements or parts that remind me of "Demanufacture (1995)", "Obsolete (1998)", or "Digimortal (2001)". It´s always hard to describe and define Fear Factory´s sound, but I´d call it a combination of death, thrash, groove, and industrial metal with a cold futuristic sci-fi atmosphere (also evident from the cover artwork and the lyrics). The vocals by Burton C. Bell are both aggressive semi-growling and clean. His cleans aren´t really that skillfully delivered (his range is very limited, and his melodies are therefore often similiar sounding and a bit monotone), but what he lacks in skills, he compensates for by having a unique singing style. You decide if that´s a positive or a negative. The riffs and rhythms are razor sharp and delivered with militant precision, while atmosphere is often provided by keyboards/samples placed in the back of the soundscape.

The material is well written, and quite catchy. "Soul Hacker" is probably the track which stands out the most (along with the closing atmospheric "Expiration Date"), because it relies more on heavy groove laden riffs and rhythms rather than on faster start/stop precision ditto.

"Genexus" is a self-produced effort, and Bell and Cazares have along with co-producer Rhys Fulber created the right cold, sharp, and futuristic sound for the music. So "Genexus" is yet another quality release by Fear Factory, but that´s really no surprise given the release history of the band. It may have been a bit up and down over the years, but their releases have always featured a basic high quality level and a distinct sound, which have carried them through, even when they weren´t at their most inspired. I´d place "Genexus" among their better releases, but not among their best. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

"Further Down The Spiral". If Nine Inch Nails hadn't already used that for a title, it would be perfect for this album. One word sums it up — lame.

At one time, Fear Factory could scare the skintight black jeans off anyone in the death metal scene. "Digimortal" sees them no longer even faintly death metal, but nu–metal wannabes. This band had a unique sound, and threw it out in favour of fashion. On first listen, "Digimortal" comes across as sub–Coal Chamber nu–metal toss. And it never improves.

Gone is the wrecking ball–heavy guitar sound in favour of something better suited to a Linkin Park single. Gone is the paint stripper death growl, replaced by a tone–deaf Korn–y rasp. Burton C. Bell still showcases his undoubtedly classy clean singing voice on the title track, but it's used too sparingly. The rhythm section is as heavy as it ever was, but is never allowed to really let strip as long-time fans know it can (remember "Martyr"?).

The single "Linchpin" is just a joke. It instantly conjures up a feel of Korn at their lamest, a la "Got The Life". It's a pop song, with double kickdrums. "Invisible Wounds (Dark Bodies)" is a power ballad of dire proportions. However, it does allow Dino Cazares the opportunity to show he's capable of so much more than just plain, boring rhythm–only nu–metal guitar playing, with some nice semi–acoustic touches.

The smelliest steaming turd in this pile of dung is definitely "Back The Fuck Up". On a weak album like this, it descends to new subterranean depths of vapidity. Unthinkable in days gone by, it's a rap track, so dire it makes Fred Durst seem like Frank Sinatra in comparison. Songs like this make you thankful there is a fast forward/skip button on your CD player. Lyrically, Burton C. Bell continues his Terminator obsession, where machines are surplanting humans. It's not terribly original or interesting. Voivod explored on a similar theme more than a decade earlier and did it better. The songs are vague and meaningless, and the album concept is dull.

Overall, there are few highlights, and a couple of extreme low lights on the album, which all winds down in the customary directionless descent into a silent soundscape (see Demanufacture, Remanufacture, and Obsolete for reference) on "[Memory Imprints] Never End". Yawn. Then the bonus tracks kick in.

"Dead Man Walking" is a lurking metallic monster, with a nice melodic vocal refrain. Musically, it harks back to the "Demanufacture" album. "Strain vs. Resistance" ups the tempo, with another excellent vocal performance and some of the best riffs on the album. The standout track is most definitely "Full Metal Contact". Full metal it is, a breakneck–pace whiplash memory of the glory days of "Soul of A New Machine". Fear Factory can still produce the goods, but just lack the spark. Unfortunately, it's an instrumental, so there's none of Burton's ugly/beautiful deathgrowl. And this is the real problem with this album. Four of the best tracks here are only available to a limited audience, who will only get to own them through geographical luck, or financial fortitude.

To say this recording confused a lot of people on its release is an understatement. After battering a jaded death metal scene with their debut album, Fear Factory then turned the scene on its head with heavy–duty techno remixes.

The songs were not so severely deconstructed the originals were unrecognisable, but they definitely added a freshness to the sound, but sent death metal purists into a rabid anti–techno frenzy. The guitar crunch and bass grunt were retained, which is part of the reason this is so appealing. Besides Godflesh and Ministry, there was very little electronic music out there with any kind of guitar sound whatsoever when this was released.

“Martyr” is probably the standout track here, with its vitriol retained, along with a new driving electronic beat. This sort of thing would have cleared the dance floor in most nightclubs instantly.

Fear Factory have since lightened their sound and incorporated more and more electronic elements. This was an indicator of what might have been had they remained their harder, deathly edge.

The only disappointment was the lack of a remix of “Leechmaster”.
