Biography

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.

Product Description

Limited DIGI pack format of the Mechanize album featuring the bonus track - Crash Test. Mechanize features the highly reported reconciliation of vocalist Burton C. Bell with original guitarist Dino Cazares. The anticipated album also welcomes back keyboardist/producer Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly) along with bassist Byron Stroud and journeyman drummer Gene Hoglan (Dethklok, Strapping Young Lad). The seventh studio album from Fear Factory. Mechanize is a full-fisted blast of passion and innovation that sounds like the missing link between s 1995 s groundbreaking Demanufacture and 1998 s more texturally nuanced Obsolete. Songs like Industrial Discipline and Powershifter are crushing and colossal, melding fast and precise rhythms with vocals that pinwheel from raw and scathing to hauntingly melodic while Fear Campaign, which features harrowing spoken word passages, quickly segues into a showcase of punishing beats, rapidfire riffs and ghostly keyboards. For the first time in years, the band s industrial roots glimmer through its street-lethal metal, thanks in part to Fulber, who worked on Fear Factory s popular industrial remix albums Fear is the Mindkiller and Remanufacture. While Mechanize is instantly reminiscent of Fear Factory s most potent moments of discovery, it s hardly a stroll down the old assembly line. Be it the orchestral keyboard swells of Christploitation, the keyboard-infused dirge of Final Exit, the taped screams and radio transmissions of Controlled Demolition or the last gasp-under-shattered-glass samples of Metallic Division, the combination of technological advancements and experience of Fear Factory have evolved like a computer virus, constantly reconfiguring itself to maximize its destructive impact.

Having seen FF's output dwindle in quality over the past few years before their demise, I was skeptical about this: however, it's a real return to their best. I'd even go as far as to say their best album since Demanufacture. It's got the fast, pulsing grooves, crunch blast-beats and even the obligatory floaty melodic number - all good!

If you've been an FF fan before, you'll welcome this as a return to form.

If you've never picked up an FF album, this is an excellent place to start.

Fear Factory are back and in extremely good form. Firstly lets get a few things straight here, this is a fear factory record so don't be too shocked to hear the sound that FF made there own in the mid to late 90's, it's what they've done with that sound. Rhys fulber makes his return to the fold on this record and the effect is evident, the swooping haunting effects that pulsed throughout demanufacture have returned and create that certain terminator-like atmosphere that was missing from transgression. the album is an aural assault from the get go, relentless double kick drum and scathing guitar set the scene for the whole album, they seem to be at their heaviest and fastest with the majority of the singing as screaming with the epic vocals spared for the right time and place, as they were on soul of a new machine and demanufacture. the new line up ( a dream conjoining of SYL and FF in my opinion) has met every expectation and the live shows will be something to look forward too. to sum up this brief review all i'll say is that FF do things their way and this album is a perfect fear factory album and i wouldn't have it any other way.

They're back! Yes!

And on top form you'll be glad to hear.
Fear Factory have almost become a super group. Backed by the tightest rhythm section in metal (Gene Hoglan & Byron Stroud), Dino & Burton are back with a vengeance and a mighty fist with which to slap down the pretenders, and the gallons of utter garbage that keeps appearing on the CD shelves.

There's bound to be plenty of opinion on which of their albums is better, and whether Mechanize lives up to the awesome shadow of Demanufacture.

I prefer to look at it on it's own and recognise that this is a new era for the Band, and they're looking forward. Different Band, different time, different people. If nothing else, it has injected some fresh blood.

It's NOT Demanufacture. Accept it, open your ears and be pleasantly surprised- It's just as good, and at times better.

Mechanize is a brutal, fast, heavy, tightly-controlled, angry beast of an album. It has some new & interesting ideas, some elements that Dino has come across while running the "Divine Heresy" project, yet all the while retaining the trademark Fear Factory sound and all the familiar elements we all love.

Dino's shredding is faster than ever, Burton's vocals are on top form, Byron Stroud keeps pace with Dino perfectly and Gene Hoglan proves once again why he's one of the top drummers in the metal scene, and the world in general.

Suffice it to say that this album hasn't been off my headphones since I got it and it put a HUGE smile on my face.
The packaging itself is enough to make it worth the money. A printed transparent slip-case, fold out digipak, special digipak booklet, and a CD holder with an eject button! Awesome!

Times change but the soul of the machine just evolves... new lineup, return to form. Not a timeless classic of the stature of Demanufacture, nor a milestone like Archetype but good throughout with some great & memorable tracks along the way. Enough to put a great big smile on my face. Thanks guys.

Who would of thought it? With the band imploding and splitting up after 'Digimortal', only to reform minus guitarist Dino Cazares and release the excellent 'Archetype' and the under-rated 'Transgression', it seemed unlikely that Dino Cazares appearing again on a Fear Factory record. But due to differences with the more or less original three members; vocalist Burton C. Bell, Guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers and Drummer Raymond Herrera (Bassist Byron Stroud quietly stood by the sidelines), Fear Factory imploded again, only for Burton and Dino to resolve their differences and decide to form Fear Factory again, minus Christian and Raymond. Cue legal wranglings etc. You can search over the internet for more on this, as this is a review of an album, not a history lesson.

In short, 'Mechanize' has to be a) One of the contenders for Metal album of the year and b) An answer to the critics. With Byron Stroud back on bass duties, and legendary drummer Gene Hoglan filling the void (of Strapping Young Lad fame, so he is more than up to the task), many fans and critics alike were kind of expecting a sub standard album. It is definitely, NOT the case!

Opener and title track 'Mechanize' opens up with a brooding Terminator inspired intro thanks to some synths by Producer Rhys Fulber (unofficial 5th member, not seen since 'Obsolete') and then all hell breaks loose. People who said Fear Factory would be nothing without Raymond Herrera will have their cake and eat it within 30 seconds, the double bass assault present and correct, and it seems faster (if thats possible).
