Transgression was produced by Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Koran, Metallica) and is the long-awaited follow-up to last year's Archetype. Both Wright and Faith no more bassist Billy Gould contributed material for the album. The first side of every Dual Disc contains a full audio album. The DVD side provides the same album in enhanced sound (such as 5.1 Surround Sound), along with such multimedia features as music videos, documentary footage, photo galleries, web links, and other enhanced content.

Fear Factory "Fear Campaign" HD


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.

Sadly, this is a disappointing release for Fear Factory since Digimortal.
If I didn't know any better, I'd think they like the idea of writing a bad album every other release so they can really feel the pressure the next time around.
The Iron Summit E-Zine
Pretty much every song on that album sounded the same, and it was very boring.

I have been a Fear Factory fan since the first album. I've seen them play in every crappy club and big arena that I could drive to. One thing I can say about Fear Factory is, they are consistantly good, live and on every album. They stick to their roots and at the same time are not afraid to grow as musicians and obviously people. To all the young fans out there looking for the same crappy sound that everyband is putting out nowadays: stfu. This album is very good. I even like the covers, because they did them their way. And their way is good. I reccomend this album to anyone that is a long time Fear Factory fan or anyone openminded enough to not want to hear the same damn song on every album by every artist forever. It is a solid effort and I like something about every single song on it.

For this, Fear Factory gets a big smooch from me, for continuing to provide me with a plethora of music that I can enjoy for the rest of my life without fear of ever being bored by them.

This album definitely is different and it could have been a lot better, but it also could have been "Digimortal." I don't say it could have been better because it was different, because I do like the experimentation on it, even if it doesnt exactly work at times.

For instance, the opener "540,000 Degrees Fahrenheit," on first listen the clean vocals really didn't do much for me the first time through. After I listened to it again, though, it grew on me; the mix of clean verse to rough chorus works really well once you get used to it. The following track "Transgression," really isn't that experimental, and I honestly could have possibly seen it on "Archetype," along with the closer, "Moment of Impact," hands down the heaviest song on the album.

In the middle, though, is really where the experimentation comes into play and, like I said, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. There is a lot more melody incorporated on this album, and to me at least, it seemed as though there was more of a noticeable electronic presence here than on "Archetype." Which, as I said, works at times, and at times it doesn't. Also, just the riffs here seem different. A lot of people are saying how Christian just rehashed some of Dino's riffs, and while they do all sound like Fear Factory, it's not like I feel like I am listening to an old Fear Factory album with different lyrics. The riffs just seem to have a different style to them and in all honesty you just have to listen to the album for yourself to understand what I'm saying. You might think differently after all.

Now, there are some things that I find very wrong with this album. First off, the production could have been better, but it is liveable. Before I heard it for myself you would have thought it was "St.

I have a been a FF fan since Demanufacture in 1995. Each album since then has its high and low points. Transgression is no different. The first 3 songs, if one is looking for "traditional" FF, will not disappoint. The fourth song, Contagion, in a small way, reminds me of Replica. The middle songs go into something long time fans may not expect or even like. They are slower,have a dark feel to them, almost moody. Before you say, my God they,ve become Staind, fear not. They still hold the base FF sound. While FF has done this before with songs like Dark Bodies and Timelessness. FF Fans are not used to 3-4 songs per album, just 1-2 songs. You need to listen to them a few times, but they will grow on you. Ill admit, I could have done without the U2 cover. I like U2 and I feel their style of music doesnt carry over well to heavier band like FF. They close the album in solid fashion with Moment of Impact, which I feel is the best song on the album. In short, FF does progress forward, musically,with this album and it well grow on you if you give it a chance.

In order to appreciate Fear Factory's seventh studio album, "Transgression," you have to have an open mind.

If you are someone who can't handle a band (especially a heavy metal band) taking chances and taking their music in a new, interesting direction, turn away.

Now then, here we are with "Transgression," Fear Factory's second album without original guitarist Dino Cazares, and the speedy follow-up to last year's comeback album, "Archetype." Instead of repeating or trying to "re-establish" themselves, this time around Fear Factory take a left turn and churn out their most diverse album to date. If you fell in love with the group when you heard "Soul Of A New Machine" or "Demanufacture," have no fear. There are plenty of songs here that will please you, most of which can be found within the first half of the album, which hits the ground running with the blistering opening track "540,000* Fahrenheit" and continues in form, until the unusually organic and beautiful "Echo Of My Scream" kicks in. The song is very reminiscent of the "Obsolete" era, but really shows Fear Factory thinking outside the box. Following it up, "Supernova" (which features Faith No More bassist Billy Gould) takes the group into more accessible, almost pop territory, sounding more like Foo Fighters than Fear Factory. The song is hit or miss, and really depends on personal taste. Regardless, it shows that the band is capable of so much more than they have already established, and that they are finally not afraid to take a real chance (which the band does again on their awesome cover of U2's "I Will Follow"). The rest of the album, however, should please the average metal-head.

Doesnt anyone do lead solos anymore?
I agree, Trivium seems to be the only band that does that anymore. Have you heard of Mors Principium Est. They have some decent solos, not the greatest though.
