5.0 out of 5 stars Modern thrash rubbish at its finest, 19 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Demanufacture (Audio CD)
'Soul of a New Machine' was a fairly promising debut, blending death metal with industrial samples and overtones. However, 'Demanufacture' marks a stunning and remarkable leap for one of the best and most original metal outfits of the nineties.
By now Fear Factory had gotten rid of most of the death metal and embraced a more thrash-orientated direction, which actually makes for a more powerful attack as it is much more focused. It is often written about FF taking lyrical influence from stuff like 'Terminator' and it actually SOUNDS like this album is played by cyborgs - the tightness and precision is inhumanly precise, and this is what made Fear Factory unique. Listen to the way the downtuned guitars, bass and Herrara's AWESOME double-kick drums meld into one entity, and be blown away by the battering-ram like power.
Combine this with Burton's roaring/angelic vocals (probably the best he's ever recorded) and the haunting synth and piano lines (Zero Signal) and you have one of the heaviest and most original, not to say down-right finest metal albums recorded EVER. They will be sadly missed.
Post modernist avant guardist fusion at its most decadent. Magnifique.
