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.

Being a life long Fear Factory fan, whenever new material is being released, I simply cannot wait to hear the album, so I have been fortunate enough to hear an advance copy of Transgession! One word sums up this album - Awesome! Its easily the most accessible album of recent years, more than Archetype, but don't let that put you off, its on par with Demanufacture and Archetype and the top contender for Metal album of the year. Burton C Bell's vocals sound simply brilliant on every track, he has pushed himself on this album and it shows. 540,000 Degrees Fahrenheit should be released as a single, it sticks in your head instantly, with his dual vocal ability in full swing, you would swear there are 2 vocalists. Even a U2 cover of U2's I Will Follow is as good if not better than the original - a hard task if there was ever one! Fear Factory show on this album you don't have to be heavy constantly to produce a super song - Echo Of My Scream is a beautiful song, with Burton's vocals sounding the best I have heard. But don't think they've gone soft, Fear Factory still sound extreme, with Transgression, Spinal Compression, Contagion and Moment of Impact being some of the more heavire cuts on the album. I could go on about every song, but rather than bore you simply pre-order this album now, its essential and cements Fear Factory's position as one of the pioneers os Metal/Industrial music. Well done Fear Factory again for providing these ears with something special to listen to again!

Transgression just appeared one day. I'd been a Fear Factory fan for at least five years at the time it was released and wasn't even aware it was in production. I'd enjoyed their return on 2004's Archetype (which itself hasn't aged well) but was taken totally by surprise when I glimpsed this then-latest LP sitting on the shelf in HMV. It had no promotion, save for a trio of videos shot on handheld camera in night-vision. Looking back, it's easy enough to see why, and easy enough to justify, too. From its opening whoosh `til its closing crash, Transgression is an atypically poor effort from one of the 1990s' most exciting metal masters.

Its three best tracks are each bundled with a caveat: one features a section that calls to mind, depending on your age, either "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" by Tears for Fears or the theme tune from Fireman Sam; another sounds like a cover; and the last IS a cover. "New Promise" is ruined by that unfortunate similarity to those aforementioned tracks, and "Supernova" would work really well as the homage to U2 it so clearly is if it didn't come two or three tracks before an actual U2 cover (and something I never wanted to hear was Raymond Herrera drumming a U2 song).
Sadly, the best Transgression has to offer is its second cover, a suitably pummelling take on Killing Joke's "Millenium". On either side of these songs sit bland, uncharacteristically atonal blunders. It's overly aggressive as often as it's overly introspective, and not often worth listening to at all.

What Transgression sounds like, to me, is the work of a band whose well of inspiration has run dry. Gone are the thrilling exploits of robotic tormentors, the laments on harvested identity or any of the sonic backdrops against which such lyrical treats were so uniquely set.

Transgression is a change of pace is the best way to describe it. The Aggression is toned down,
the opening song is quite pretty I like the lyrics and the vocals are all mostly sung, it is very catchy.
However it feels a bit tired in places too, the general pace of the album is slower too. I quite like it but not as much as others it is NOT as bad as the crappy rappy song from Digimortal though. I think it was a bit rushed for some reason. I actually quite like this album some of the songs are brilliant and a few are not so good for example the covers I love hearing covers but unless it is a covers album they should be at the end of an album I think otherwise it feels like the band didn't have enough material and that is what this album feels like a rush job that didn't quite have enough material.
The songs that are hear are pretty good they have the hallmarks of Fear Factory down tuned guitar, Machine guns riffs although less of them. Shouted and sung vocals and a few keyboard elements here and there .
Stand out tracks for me are
540,000 Farenheit
Echo Of My Scream
and Supanova
despite there more commercial feel I find them very catchy
all in all a bit of a step back from Archetype but still quite good.

Hmmm I personally find this to be Fear Factory's worst album of the lot. Archetype wasn't by far brilliant but this album is worse!

Let me start with what I liked: That's easy I like the song 540 degrees, you can listen to it and imagine the horror of a nuclear wave flying through a city, much like the scene from Terminator 2.
There are a couple of other songs I like but from that point the album gets tedious!

To sum up the tracks of Transgression; you basically have a few new ff songs with the rest being covers of other bands! This for me is what lets it down, not enough originality; and another thing the sound editing is dreadful! Did you know that Christian Wolbers walked out of the recording studio because he was unsatisfied with the way it sounded. I have to say the drums in some of the songs don't sound right, nor do the guitars; I have to agree with Christian.

I give this album a 2 because I do like a few of the songs primarily 540, but that's really it. There isn't much to say about this album really. It could've been a lot better had it been finished and developed ah well.

As a Fear Factory fan I have to say that you aren't missing much if you avoid this album!
