"I've... seen things... you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion; I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate... All those... moments... will be lost, in time, like... tears... in... rain. Time... to die" - Roy Batty

This album wastes no time. 10 tracks that are well crafted, cinematically produced, mechanically heavy in its main riffs/kick drums and organically human with emotion in its vocal choruses and synth pads. I would not be surprised if this album will be considered among the pinnacle metal/ or industrial albums of the 2010's. Or at least a number of its songs like "Dielectric" or "Regenerate".

Some causal fans will say "it's more of the same" but I argue what you're hearing is Fear Factory's core formula. You know right away this is Fear Factory. How many bands can say they have a signature sound? NO ONE can duplicate their sound and this is what hardcore fans appreciate.

There are different nuances to every album and GENEXUS is no different. I would describe its own distinction from other albums first in the Synthesizer usage. A lot of "pitch-bending" melodies that support Dino's guitar riffs (ex: "Anodized" or "Church of Execution") as well as orchestra-based pads (strings and brass sounds, ex: "Dielectric" or "Protomech") and they stand out more in the mix (ex: "Regenerate" or "Battle For Utopia". This is something that hasn't been truly approached since Demanufacture (ex: "Zero Signal or "Pisschrist"). It seems that Dino had these synth melodies in mind when writing the guitar riffs, so that when played together, they would harmonize equally and enhance a song's quality.

I have been listening to this this band since I was a teenager, when I rocked out to Demanufacture and Soul of a New Machine. I was of course blown away by Obsolete. I thought that Digimortal was pretty good, with some good tracks like "Back The **** Up" and Invisible Wounds really making the album worthwhile despite some weaknesses. Archetype was pretty awesome for its brutality, and Transgression was a bit of a let-down for me personally (to each their own though).

In 2010, the band came back in spades with Mechanize. It was awesome to hear the band embrace their heavier roots. The album was, and remains, a brutal, savage example of a metal album. In 2012, they released The Industrialist. While I do not think that Fear Factory have ever released a bad album, I personally felt that it was a let-down to a degree. There are certainly some good songs, but the lack of a human drummer did not seem to help the band's cause. To be fair, "God Eater" remains one of my fave Fear Factory songs.

Now it's 2015, and Fear Factory have just released Genexus. While some fans will hold Mechanize as the best post-90's Fear Factory album, I am pretty sure that some fans will claim that Genexus is their best work since Obsolete or Demanufacture. Of course it's all about personal opinion, but a lot of people are saying just that.

First of all, the innovation that made the band so well-loved in the first place is back. There are choruses that are very reminiscent of Demanufacture and Obsolete. I will say that this album certainly embraces the band's electronic and industrial backgrounds more than the previous two albums.

As far as heaviness goes, Genexus is heavy as hell Burton's screams remain brutal as ever.

You don't need to forget The Industrialist. But I recommend kind of casting it in the same light as Digimortal, Archetype, and Transgression. There were some good songs, but it's mostly "standard" (not necessarily mediocre) Fear Factory fare. Mechanize was a triumph - truly a continuation from where the band left off from Obsolete - or even Demanufacture.

Similarly you certainly need not forget Genexus. It is a worthy staple in the FF library. I'd measure it as equal in importance as Obsolete - if perhaps not quite as imaginative as the former. The production here is as excellent as always, as tight as ever.

Is it the band's best? Certainly not. Is it the worst yet? By no stretch of the imagination. Is it excellent music? Certainly.

I'd say to anyone looking for good metal, this is for you. Looking for good Fear Factory - give this one several worthwhile listens through. They pull a few new tricks, present their classic best ones, and it's all worth it.

It will stick in your head! This is an awesome album. Hands-down one of the best from Fear Factory in a while. These guys are ageless. My favorite album was Digimortal...and this one is next in line. They strike a perfect balance of harmony and crunching guitar and double bass. They don't overdo the synthesizers, and when they use them...it's done with perfection. It's been a while since I have heard an American Metal album that I want to actually keep listening too. If you are a Fear Factory fan...you will dig this album. For fans of...Soilwork, Mudvayne, Trivium, Pantera, etc...get it.
