In the early ‘90s, many years before Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall started combining strangled growls with catchy vocal melodies, and Static-X and Rammstein began blended pounding staccato riffs and jackhammer beats with electronic samples, Los Angeles future-thinkers Fear Factory were reinventing both death metal and industrial rock with an arsenal of sonic styles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Fear Factory 15 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD

The first four songs on this album are outstanding, particuarly the choruses - For me this is the most rewarding aspect of the LP - Burton really shines here with his typical clean sung choruses. They are memorable, melodic and slightly haunting. Also, Rhys Fulber has done an amazing job with his atmospherics and samples - in places he has added some new touches that haven't really been featured on an FF record before. E.g on 'new messiah' and 'god eater' - his melodies on top of the verse/chorus breaks are eerie and give a completely different feel to a typical FF song.


The major let down for me is the drums. You can tell they were programmed, and a lot of the beats are completely uninspired. Yes of course FF is supposed to have that robotic sound but at the end of the day we're talking music here, and it needs a human touch. I suppose they did this to cut down on owner/royalty costs? To be honest i can appreciate that given todays musical earnings.
As i said the first four songs are outstanding, however it seems that the remaining four get weaker and weaker, and then, we are left with 13 minutes of industrial sound scapes??!! I admit i have just downloaded the tracks off of Itunes and do not have the actual CD disk and so i have not followed the whole 'concept' thing with the booklet - maybe that makes a difference, to appreciate the 13 minutes of crap?
A side note about Dino - some of the riffs here are a bit juvenile and bring nothing new to the table. This is especially true for filler riffs between chrouses and verses. Also, the chorus to 'the industrialist' - thats pure cheese to me!


If you are an avid FF fan the first four songs alone make the purchase worth it.

I agree with one of the other reviewers...there is a smattering of "been there, heard that" to this record.

I am glad to say that it doesn't bother me one bit! There are however quite a few tracks that are easy to forget, something that is harder to say of Demanufacture, Obsolete or Digimortal.

The main think I noticed from this album is the sound that comes from Dino returning to the fold. The attacking drums are there as always but this is a somehow altogether heavier offering than Mechanize. I found myself craving a 'Powershifter' stand out track on the album and it probably would be New Messiah for me.

Over the 00's years this modern classic industrial/metal band were possibly losing direction, support, going through line-up problems but the last 2 albums have seen them surprisingly return right back into stunning focused form with non-nonsense very tight and heavy tunes like they peaked with in the mid/late 90's. Very great album, and came in great quality through the post.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Demanufacture...maybe... 27 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a long-time Fear Factory fan. I've been to see them three times, I have all of their albums. However, they've had some trouble topping Demanufacture with their subsequent efforts. Obsolete was good in parts; Digimortal was ok but peaked at Lynchpin; Archetype was a brief return to form before the disaster that was Transgression. Mechanize and the Industrialist are almost like Soul of a new machine and Demanufacture all over again. Mechanize was a little rough & ready, brutal & sludgy and the Industrialist was the polished, clinical followup. If only they could maintain this momentum for a few more albums and I'll be happy. It's just a shame that their lineup has been so erratic lately.

Highlights for me include Recharger, God Eater and Depraved Mind Murder.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Mechanize, this is an album for you 27 Dec 2012
By Sytri
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed The Industrialist. As an album, it pretty much carries on the sound that was presented in Mechanize. If I were to put them side by side complete albums, I would say The Industrialist is superior as it has more decent tracks, where Mechanize had a few forgettable ones.

If I were to criticise the album, I would say it doesn't present anything new as such, but if you like Fear Factory's sound, you will enjoy it. I myself have always liked their sound, so it's certainly enjoyable for me!

Overall, if you like Fear Factory, you will like The Industrialist. I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5 just because there will be people out there who want them to experiment a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Mechanize then... 12 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you liked Fear Factory's 2010 release, "Mechanize", then there's every chance you'll like "The Industrialist".

On the surface of it, a lot has changed since the last release. The band has undergone yet another line-up change - shedding former SYL members Gene Hoglan and Byron Stroud and paring the band down to essentially just Dino and Burton. In some ways this is a shame - I thought that the "Strapping Young Factory" combination showed a lot of promise - but "The Industrialist" doesn't sound substantially different for the change.

Similarly, Burton made a point of claiming that "The Industrialist" would see a return to the Fear Factory "concept album". I welcomed this news as I thought that Mechanize lacked a unifying theme - but for all that, I can't say that I've noticed that the concept has made much difference to the album as a whole.

Overall, "The Industrialist" is remarkably similar to "Mechanize". It's more or less the same length, the same number of tracks, the same sound and style. It starts strongly: the album's standout tracks being "The Industrialist" and "Recharger" - but neither of these tracks quite match the sticking power of "Fear Campaign" or "Powershifter". Later tracks don't quite live up to the standard set by the first two, but the album is consistent and easy to lose yourself in. I think it's at its best when you just let the pounding noise wash over you like the rumble of machinery - which is probably the whole point.

As with "Mechanize", much was made before the release of this being a return to the heights of "Demanufacture" - but this is misleading. "The Industrialist" is a very different album, and I like it for that.
