I've owned this Album for a while now and have been listening to it regularly.
C. Drouganis
Any big fan of industrial metal, metal or this band should check out this album by one of the most influential bands of the 90s.
Jason Jay
The Industrialist is excellent, from the vocals, guitars, bass (both played by Dino) and the mechanical drums.

I was a huge fan of Mechanize when it came out.
Brilliant, brutal, and catchy.
Mechanize put any worries that this reunion of Dino and Bell to rest immediately.

And now we come to the sophomore release of the newly formed FF.
Out is Hoglan and Stroud.
The core writing team of Dino, Bell and Fulber is intact with some very impressive results.
The disc stars out with the title track which simply crushes.
Up next is the single that was released a while back "Recharger" is everything a good FF song should be.
"New Messiah"...while not a bad song nothing about it really stands out either.
"God Eater"...probably my favorite song on the disc. Very experimental.
"Depraved"..The middle section of the song is great but a lot of it failed to keep my attention.
"Virus"...fast, brutal, memorable. Excellent track.
"Difference"...another song with a great middle part.
"Disassemble"...another kick in the face of brutal goodness.
The last two songs aren't really songs but more along the lines of robotic ambience...
"Religion" and "Human" don't really add anything relevant to the album and were not a good choice to close the album.
All in all, I'm actually very happy with this release.
There's enough variety and catchy songwriting to grab my attention and hold it.
Is it as good as "Mechanize"?
I'd put it in my top FF three of "Demanufacture", "Mechanize" and "Industrialist".
My only minor complaint is the subject matter.
FF have been writing about the whole man vs. machine subject for many years now and while this puts a slightly different slant on things it doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from past releases.
That said.
Great album.
A solid follow up to "Mechanize".

Been a fan of FF for more than 15 years I saw in the last couple of years the lineup changes, the core of band belong to Burton and Dino and Rhys as a important member. The Industrialist simple if a gem in his own kind. Since the opening intro you hear what is coming a modern industrial record that only FF can deliver.

The clean voices of Burton simple are awesome, overall a great vocal performance. Highlights from the album New Messiah, God Eater, Virus of Faith. The deluxe edition came with two additional tracks where you can find Landfill (Pitchshifter Cover)a dark trackto end the record.

This is a no brainer if you want to hear quality metal simple buy this and support the band.

If you were hoping Fear Factory would build on the positive response to their Mechanize album and go with a crushing assault of thrash and groove influenced by hardcore and industrial, their new release should hit the spot. The core of The Industrialist is Fear Factory doing what they do best. Even though they've incorporated scores of different styles on their past efforts, they've always sounded the most potent and capable when they keep their aggressive side at the forefront.

They're smart to open each song with an energetic blast of either speed or power/groove, then play some softer parts around the middle, then alternate back and forth. It gives even the tracks that have a little less punch an overall scorching impression. Fear Factory remind me of Machine Head in that they have grown over the years and found the perfect blend of the various styles they play, making their songs cohesive and confident instead of awkward and confused, as both bands have sounded at times in the past.

For this release, I think you'll get the most enjoyment out of it if you're a fan of Demanufacture. They went for that album's ultra-heavy, aggressive approach on Mechanize, but I could swear I heard some traces of Meshuggah on some of those songs. The Industrialist features a greater focus on their trademark, precision guitar-and-drum machine-gun attack established on Demanufacture, enhanced by the incredible drum programming done by John Sankey and resulting in a strong thrash presence overall.

Along those lines, this album also sees notable emphasis on the essential sound effects and keyboard work of Rhys Fulber, who I think of as a full-fledged member of the band. A highlight for me is the Fear Is The Mindkiller vibe he creates on parts of God Eater; awesome song!

I have been a Fear Factory fan since I first heard "Replica" on that first Ozzfest Live compilation album in 1996/1997. I first checked them out live in 1998 in Chicago when they opened up for Slayer and have been with them every step of the way. I am with a lot of people here when they say that "The Industrialist" reminds them a lot of the old school sound of "Demanufacture" and "Obsolete". I feel as though with this release, Fear Factory have finally found their sound again. If this would have been released back when "Digimortal" hit, I believe Fear Factory would have been one of the biggest bands in the world.

With that being said, let's break this sucker down. I am a huge fan of concept albums so when I found out that "The Industrialist" was a full fledge concept record, I got super amped up. The opening title track is killer on its own, but I managed to pick up the special edititon with Burton's story in it, when I began to read along with his works and hit play when "The Industrialist" begins walking the streets, goose bumps hit my arm! The story, (while may contain a few holes)adds a great feel to the album and really makes it feel more special than any release they have put out since "Obsolete". After the six minute title track completed, I hit pause to continue reading the story. If you do it this way, you are in for a crazy ride. If not, no big deal. This release is really a kick ass industrial record from beginning to end.

I have seen a few things online with people bitching about the programmed drums. To me, it is such a fitting move. I think it really beings together the whole industrial sound of the band! If you are a fan of what Fear Factory did in the 90's give this thing your attention.
