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 Archetype

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
This is my favourite Fear Factory album. I know music is subjective and deeply personal, and that everyone gets something different from hearing the same original stimuli, but it really surprised me to find out that this wasn’t a fan favourite album.

I remember when it first came out reviews were saying “best album since Demanufacture” (my next favourite Fear Factory album), my peer group was saying “best album since Demanufacture” and I was saying “even better than Demanufacture.” I lost touch with music magazines, moved away from my peer group across country borders and stopped following Metal news and reviews for a few years. I never stopped liking this album though. I came as a big surprise that when I started paying attention to the band’s reviews and interviews and fan’s opinions again that this had fallen from favour.

2004’s Archetype is the Los Angeles Metal band’s fifth official full length studio album (if you discount compilations, remix albums, and the 1991 Concrete album). It featured long time bassist Christian Olde Wolbers moving from bass to guitar, replacing long time guitarist Dino Cazerez, and introduced Byron Stroud to the band as the new bassist (even if Christian actually did the bass too in the studio). It was self-produced by the band and longtime contributor Rhys Fulber.

The album contains the ferociously catchy singles “Cyber Waste” and “Archetype” as well as the famous “Bite The Hand That Bleeds” which many people of a certain age will remember from its SAW soundtrack inclusion and SAW themed music video.

I really, really enjoy this album. The first six tracks alone are all individually one of my favourite ever Fear Factory songs. “Slave Labour” and “Corporate Cloning” really summed up the mood of the time, both musically and lyrically. The album is heavy and aggressive like the band’s fan favourite material, but all songs are easily-digestible, memorable, and catchy. They all have a distinct identity, and it is much less samey than the albums that would be released when Dino was back in the band and Christian was thrown out.

It’s a Fear Factory record, so naturally highlights include Raymond Herrera’s incredible drumming and Burton C Bell’s distinctive vocal talents. Its worth listening to for those alone, never mind the fact that its chocked full of fun patterns, excellent choruses, great riffs, and generally red hot song writing. The material here still stands up today, over a decade since its release, as do the performances.

I urge anyone who has ignored this album just because Dino is not on it, or who hasn’t heard it yet to give it a try. Don’t miss out on it just because the fickle court public have swept it under the carpet nowadays. This is some seriously good Metal music. Equal to if not better than the best of rest of their discography in my own opinion. If you are a fan who hasn’t listened to it in a while, I’d just like to remind you about it and about how good it is.

With its centre of gravity in industrial metal but aspects of groove, thrash, death and alternative metal styles informing it, Fear Factory's Demanufacture sees the band display an impressive command of features of a myriad different metal genres. At points the album sounds a little thin to my ears - in particular, the production isn't always favourable to Raymond Herrera's drums - but the variety of material from more simplistic vaguely commercial compositions to deeper and more intense industrial meditations just about manages to sell me on the album. Burton Bell deserves particular props for the sheer range of vocal styles at his command, to the point where he starts to resemble industrial metal's answer to Mike Patton.

UMUR
"The Industrialist" is the 9th full-length studio album by US death/industrial metal act Fear Factory. The album was released through Candlelight Records in June 2012. The band returned to the scene after a 5 year recording break with the critically acclaimed "Mechanize (2010)". An album that also saw the return of founding member/guitarist Dino Cazares but also the inclusion of bassist Byron Stroud (Strapping Young Lad) and drummer Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Death, Strapping Young Lad...etc.). A strong lineup that recorded a strong album. However on "The Industrialist" the two latter mentioned are already out of the band again and former Chimaira guitarist Matt DeVries has taken over the bass duties. A bit more controversial maybe, the drums on the album are programmed.

If you are familiar with the industrial tinged death/extreme metal style of Fear Factory, "The Industrialist" is not an album that holds many surprises. Compared to it´s predecessor the intensity level is slightly lower and the music is a bit more groove based too. The fact that the drums are programmed is not a major deal really (although I would have prefered a "real" drummer). It gives the album a slightly more metallic/industrial sound, but that´s not really unusual for Fear Factory. All the trademark Fear Factory traits are present on "The Industrialist". Burton C. Bell´s raw semi-growling vocals and his clean vocals too, the heavy precision riffing and rythms and a sci-fi lyrical theme. This time around it´s a concept story.

The album is well produced, the musicianship is solid and the songwriting decent. While there aren´t many highlights on "The Industrialist", there are a couple of standout tracks on the album like "Recharger", "New Messiah" and the closing 9:04 minutes long ambient "Human Augmentation". While the first two mentioned stand out because they are hook laden and memorable the latter stand out because it´s tedious and quite frankly redundant. Had it lasted 2 minutes intstead of 9 it could probably have worked well as an atmospheric outro to the album, but as it is now I´m half asleep before it ends. Despite the album being a bit of a "flat" experience in terms of highlights and my issue with the length of "Human Augmentation", "The Industrialist" still comes off as a quality product with a distinct sound. It might be Fear Factory "by the numbers", but even Fear Factory "by the numbers" is better than most of the competition and I´d say a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) is warranted. I do hope they´ll be helped by a more creative muse the next time around though.

The Industrialist is Fear Factory’s eighth proper canonical studio album, it is their second album since Dino rejoined the band and their second full-out concept album. It was recorded after a line-up change which saw Gene and Byron from Strapping Young Lad leave the band, to be replaced by Matt DeVries from Chimaira and a drum machine.

Lyrically, the album tells a story something along the lines of: an artificial intelligence is created that learns how to think, how to self-preserve and becomes a messianic figure teaching other robots that humanity is flawed, and then tries to stop the humans from disassembling the robots. Upon first listen the story isn’t as all pervasive as you may expect however, and it could take a decent amount of spins to get to grips with it.

Musically, you should know what to expect if you have heard a lot of Fear Factory material before, especially if you have heard Obsolete and Mechanize.

Sometimes Fear Factory get accused of making the same album all the time, but I think this is rather unfair. They do certainly have a signature sound; every album has Burton mixing low barking vocals with treated melodic singing, every album has a lot of syncopated mechanical sounding double-kick patterns along with similarly rhythmic riffs and most of their albums end with a cleaner, spacier track. Within that signature sound however, they have covered a lot of ground over the years.

Their first album had an more Death Metal and Grindcore influenced style, then they released the classic Demanufacture in 1995 which most people use as the basis for what they think Fear Factory sound like. The concept album Obsolete which followed took that sound in a few different directions and Digimortal simplified it. Then their primary guitarist Dino left and the band released the underrated and varied Archetype in 2004 and followed that up with the much more commercial Transgression, which was poorly received.

The album that The Industrialist most sounds however like is the album which it follows up, 2010’s Mechanize. Mechanize was an album which largely sought to replicate the sound from Demanufacture and saw Dino rejoin the band at the expense of long time members Chirstian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera. Of any two Fear Factory albums in a row, the gap in quality and direction between The Industrialist and Mechanize is the smallest in the band’s career.

Many fans celebrated Mechanize as a return to form, however I have never personally been able to get all that behind it, despite listening to it a lot and giving it a really fair chance to win me over. The biggest thing I had always liked about Fear Factory was Raymond Herrera, and although Gene Hoglan (and now a drum machine) can replicate the general style that Ray played in, they both had a different feel to Ray.

I also feel that although stylistically Mechanize was right on the money, its actual songs were a little too samey and formulaic (a risk you have to take when trying to play your signature sound. It could always pay off as a consistent effort, or backfire as an overly samey effort) and ultimately just felt a little bit hollow to me. Few songs on it made a lasting impression in the same way as the older material was able to. There was nothing discernibly wrong with it but it still didn’t feel like a great record.

The Industrialist falls into this exact situation. Everything about it sounds right, but it doesn’t have any “better than the sum of its parts” magic. The Industrialist is another Fear Factory album, its some more of the same traditionally Fear Factory sounding songs to add to your collection and a few new songs to hear live or on compilations. It is all really well made, well produced and hard to criticize. Burton still sings well on record and the lyrics are actually pretty interesting as well, but despite having everything going for it, I just don’t personally love it. I only think it is OK. I don’t wish it hadn’t been made, but nor would I list it as my new favourtie album.

If you also felt the way that I did about Mechanize, then I would say that The Industrialist is going to make you feel the same way again. It doesn’t raise the bar significantly enough in the songwriting department to make everything memorable and distinct. The tracks are fairly interchangeable excluding the opener and the final two spacey tracks, and it is difficult to choose either highlights or low-points because it is all similar. It is all of the same style, same great quality and same lack of magic. I can absolutely understand how and why people would like it, but I just don’t personally get a buzz off it like I did from some of their other works.

If you personally think Mechanize was brilliant however, then The Industrialist will surely work just as well for you and I recommend that you check it out. Everything that was good about Mechanize is represented here too in fine form, and if you don’t have a mental block on the ‘added magic’ factor then this album is absolutely something you can enjoy.

If you haven’t heard a lot of Fear Factory at all before, it’ll probably stand up really well, as it won’t have to compare to existing Fear Factory material and so can just be enjoyed purely “as is.”

In summary, my recommendation would be that before buying, you should asses how you feel or don’t feel about existing Fear Factory work and then set your expectations accordingly. At the very least you will get some more OK versions of what you like and at the best you may discover your new favourite band.

UMUR
Transgression is the 7th ( or 6th if you don´t include Concrete ( 2002) in your count) full-length studio album by US alternative/ industrial/ death metal act Fear Factory. The album was released in August 2005 by Trillion Records. Transgression is produced by Toby Wright who is known for his work with among others Alice In Chains, Korn and Soulfly. The lineup is unchanged since Archetype (2004) which means Burton C. Bell on vocals, Christian Olde Wolbers on guitars, Raymond Herrera on drums and Byron Stroud on bass.

The music on the album is a kind of alternative/ industrial metal with a few nods towards extreme metal. The change from being an industrial death metal act which was already initiated as far back as on Obsolete (1998) is now complete. There´s very little on Transgression besides the occassional aggressive attitude that suggests that Fear Factory were once a death metal act. Burton C. Bell sings both clean and raw vocal styles on the album but both styles are pretty accessible. The harder hittin´ riffing on the album are more akin to NU-metal and alternative chuggin´ metal style riffing than ever before. The songs are generally very simple and accessible. Calling this an adventurous album would be strecthing the definition of that word very far. Now Archetype was an album where the band had to find their feet after principal songwriter and guitarist Dino Cazares left the band and I can forgive some of the weakneses on that album, but on Transgression it´s become too obvious that Dino Cazares was one of the defining pieces of the puzzle, that made the early Fear Factory albums so influential and unique. Christian Olde Wolbers, who shifted from bass to guitars and became the prinicipal songwriter in Fear Factory after Dino Cazares left, simply hasn´t got the same interesting songwriting ideas. Unfortunately this results in a lot of pretty standard tracks that don´t really stand out from each other that much. Out of 11 tracks the band have also opted to include two cover tracks, which in my book is a sign of decline in terms of proving yourself. A sign that the band have run dry of ideas or maybe even worse lost the hunger and passion. Both the U2 cover I Will Follow and the Killing Joke cover Millennium are performed really well and fits well on the album, but I would have prefered to have them placed on an EP or a single and have them replaced by two original tracks instead. This might all sound a bit negative, but there are actually no below standard tracks on the album and in that respect Transgression is a very consistent album.

It´s no surprise that the musicianship on the album is excellent. I would never question the skills in the band. Well... Burton C. Bell isn´t a great singer meassured on skills or perfect pitch, but he has a unique style that´s instantly recognisable. He doesn´t sound very inspired on this album though and again the word standard comes to mind. I´m really searching for that breathtaking moment of bliss that some of the early albums had plenty of, but it never comes.

The production is polished and very professional. Almost too professional to these ears though. I think the sound lacks punch and rawness. Honestly I find it quite soulless. It´s kind of like listening to a pop album where all the focus is on the vocals and the instrumentation is left to hum in the background.

While my personal experience with Transgression hasn´t exactly been rewarding I still think the quality of the release warrants a 3 - 3.5 star rating. If you are a newbie to Fear Factory, it´s probably the last album by the band that I would recommend listening to though. Thankfully they would return with Mechanize (2010) five years later, stronger than ever and with a new lineup.
