5.0 out of 5 stars Demanufacture [RR 25th Anniversary Remaster], 19 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Demanufacture (25th Anniversary Reissue) (Audio CD)
Fear Factory: one of the most memorable industrial metalists to ever make such an impact on the world of metal. And never forgetting at the same time what an impact their recent remaster DEMANUFACTURE has made on tons of fans worldwide. This was one of the most wanted CD's on my list and I just had to get it, because of the music and the package.
DEMANUFACTURE is maybe the most stressful record that's been made, considering it cost over twice of what it was budgeted for. And also, it took a long time to record and be delivered! So no wonder everyone was freaking over it! But this is a newly remastered special edition with 2 CD's with rare remixes, outtakes, exclusive artwork and extensive liner notes. Which fans will love to get their hands on.
But now, it seems as if DEMANUFACTURE could've been released today,because of its futuristic and techno input, mixed altogether with a great metal sound and vocals from FF. The songs are almost all great or near fantastic. The futuristic sound effects are really "Boost-ups" if you now what I mean.
The title track, "Self Bias Resistor," "Zero Signal," "Replica," "New Breed," the covered song, "Dog Day Sunrise," and "Body Hammer" are the best songs which make this album and FF outstanding, all you need to do is read this, buy the CD, and be amazed.
But other good songs like the last three songs "H-K (Hunter-Killer)," "Pisschrist" and "A Therapy For Pain" are almost as good as the first seven songs, which altogether make up DEMANUFACTURE (but, oowwwww, wait for the bonus tracks, they're rarities too!)
There is also a bonus CD I almost forgot to mention, called REMANUCATURE (Cloning Technology), this CD contains remixes of almost all the songs on DEMANUFACTURE. This, by the way, has got me into techno music and I didn't seem to like it very much, but after listening to FEAR IS THE MINDKILLER and REMANUFACTURE through and through, I've came out with a new style of music. Also on these CD's are rare bonus tracks and one previously unreleased song which are all good enough to celebrate RR 25th Anniversary along with Roadrunner United: The All Star Sessions! A must have for all Fear Factory fans.
Describing FF's performance on this record is OK, Burton C Bell has done the best vocals he has ever done. Dino Cazares has made tons of superb riffs, but at the time of recording, annoyed the producer Colin Richardson, who banned him from the mixing of DEMANUFACTURE in London, England. Christian Olde Wolbers was the bass guitarist at the time, and joined FF when Evan Seinfeld from Biohazard told him FF needed a bass player. His best bass riffs are on the song "Flashpoint". Raymond Herrera has remained strong throughout this album with his drumming. Somehow, i believe that his drumming has became more faster in my opinion.
DEMANUFACTURE has obviously signposted a brave new world of metal, so get it all you FF fans everywhere! This album is #1 on my list of favourite albums of 2005, so should yours!
