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.

Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Alternative Metal veterans. Mechanize is a full-fisted blast of passion and innovation that sounds like the missing link betweens 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, rapid-fire riffs and ghostly keyboards. While Mechanize is instantly reminiscent of Fear Factory's most potent moments of discovery, its hardly a stroll down the old assembly line. The combination of technological advancements and experience of Fear Factory have evolved like a computer virus, constantly reconfiguring itself to maximize its destructive impact.

Customer Reviews

This is the best album of the decade.
Jorginhovskyi007
I know a lot of bands say that their new album is the best album they've done since.........their one album that everyone says is their best.
Brian Nallick
This album is pretty good for the most part.

I know a lot of bands say that their new album is the best album they've done since.........their one album that everyone says is their best.
I won't name bands, you know who I'm talking about.
But are their new albums a match for their masterpieces?
Hardly.
With Fear Factory it's always been about Demanufacture.
Some will argue that Obsolete is their best.
My favorite was always Demanufacture.
So upon hearing and reading about all the turmoil in the band I was rather happy with Archetype. It was still a great album.
Transgression on the other hand...............I blame the label for forcing the product before it was ready.
And then.............more band turmoil and we're now left with Burton and Dino again with Stroud and Hoglan.
And how does it measure up?
Does it actually match the almighty and eternal Demanufacture?
I didn't have my hopes set that high. I loved Divine Heresy's last album Bringer of Plagues and was hoping Mechanize would be at least half that good.
Man was I wrong.
Not only does this album equal Demanufacture I'd say its a few notches above it.
This album has done to me what NO album has done since I was a teenager.
I could literally feel the hair on the back of my neck stand up and by the time I got to Christploitation I was ready to break every window in my house.
This album literally made me want to go bezerk.
I'm 35 and it's hard to get an old geezer metal head to feel like this.
My favorite track is Christploitation but really, every song on this disc simply DESTROYS.
Everything that was great about Demanufacture is back and bigger and better.
It's heavy, it's fast, it's got the creepy keys and the creepy moaning vocals of Burton here and there.

The story of how Fear Factory's seventh album, "Mechanize," came to be is a rather messy one. After putting Fear Factory on the back-burner last year, frontman Burton C. Bell patched up his toxic relationship with former guitarist Dino Cazares, only to re-form the band without the consent of its other half. Drummer Raymond Herrera and bassist-turned-guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers were out, while bassist Byron Stroud (who played with the band on their two Dino-less albums) and drummer/workhorse Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Dethklok) rounded out the newest incarnation of Fear Factory. With some legal wrangling and a few dozen Blabbermouth headlines, the album has miraculously seen the light of day.

Re-united with longtime collaborator Rhys Fulber, the men that now make up Fear Factory are bound and determined to make "Mechanize" a glorious return to form. Truth be told, "Mechanize" is about as good as anything Fear Factory has produced in the last decade. Falling somewhere between the soul-crushing power of Demanufacture and the matured song-writing and dynamics of Obsolete, the album tries for and succeeds at recapturing the band's glory days. Burton and Dino sound as if they have entered a time-warp roughly somewhere around 1997, while drummer Gene Hoglan does a solid job of aping his predecessor. As for Byron Stroud, well, he delivers as expected, but let's face it: the role of the bass-player in Fear Factory has always been irrelevant.

The one thing that sets "Mechanize" aside from the albums it tries to emulate, though, is the shift from the "Man vs.

Yes folks it's here-the Fear Factory comeback album that we were all hoping would come out one day. I gots to say that Mean Gene Hoglan drumming for ff is an upgrade. Sound is a more organic and while the double bass is still triggered, it's the fills and rolls that hoglan adds that makes up for better drumming. Also be prepared for blast beats. They are brutal and will kick you in the mouth. Dino obviously was sorely missed in the riff creating dept. Riffs are catchy and super heavy. Burton's vox are brutal, he returns w/some death metal screams and his vocals have never sounded this angry before, coupled w/his more melodic vocals this is the best he has ever sounded. The bass-well it's pretty much buried, so Byron is barely heard throughout the disc. This is the best ff cd since Demanufacture-I would not say it's better than demanufacture though, but it comes pretty darn close. All the tracks are pretty much pummeling. Fantastic to finally hear ff add the death metal influence back and have retained their industrial heaviness. This is review is for the bonus edition, which you should pick up. They redo crash test from s.o.a.n.m.-sounds really brutal here. Other 3 bonus songs are the demo from 1991-really had a huge godflesh influence back then, songs are really slow, they sure sped things up for the debut cd that was to come out the next yr. Anyway this cd smokes and the it's like fear factory '95 all over again. Killer, hope they continue and don't cave in.

You sometimes just can't argue with chemistry and music. Like Plant and Page, Lennon and McCartney and countless other team efforts, sometimes what was needed was a creative tension or cohesion that brought out the best in both partners. And like these famous partnerships, the solo efforts, while in some cases weren't bad efforts at all, they just didn't equal the heights the combinations did. While it would be a stretch to compare Dino Cazares and Burton C. Bell with Lennon and McCartney, in the world of metal, their collaboration far outshines solo efforts. Cazares' first Divine Heresy CD has some punch, but the follow-up, "Bringer Of Plagues", for all its ferocity just doesn't have the tunes and although this reviewer gave it a good review in hopes it would grow on me, I'm sorry to say it hasn't. In fact, it's pummeling without purpose and sadly bereft of hooks.
So Dino hooks back up with Burton C. Bell, and suddenly the spark has been rekindled, very much so. It's been a wait for classic FF fans worth waiting for. "Mechanize" also brings along Gene Hoglan, possibly the greatest heavy drummer out there, with the possible exception of Dave Lombardo, and that's good company. Hoglan fires away with machine gun precision and can also cool it when necessary, which lots of thrash drummers seem to have lost the ability or interest in doing. But the real stars of course are the riffs and great synth programming of Rhys Fulber. This slab has musically squeezed in between "Demanufacture" and "Obsolete", which one may have thought impossible. While the claims on the CD promising new ground breaking territory aren't exactly accurate, "Mechanize" still proves that FF are the quintessential metal industrial band.
