Review Summary: Presenting a sound way ahead of its time, Demanufacture is and always will be the definitive Fear Factory album. This is the sound of a truly talented Industrial Metal band pushing their limits and making an album that is timeless even years later. Rank: 33 for Apathy Industrial Metal has always been somewhat of an acquired taste to some. Not all of the bands that come out with this sort of sound are good, but there is no doubt that one of the pioneer bands of this genre is Fear Factory.
NIN had a much more mainstream sound and have been recognized more, but Fear Factory infused so many elements into their music from other genres that made them have their own definitive sound. In , they released Demanufacture, and with this album they truly define their sound and give a collection that has since become timeless.
Part of what made this album immensely popular and the reason why it has inspired countless metal bands since its release is that it has a sound that is very futuristic, brutal, and cold. Vocalist Burton C. Bell is very unique and brought forth a distinct vocal style that is integral to the Fear Factory sound.
Guitarist Dino Cazeres packs this album full of machine gun riffs, never letting up from the assault until the album closer. Fear Factory Obsolete 4. Review Summary: Picking up where Demanufacture left off, Obsolete shows Fear Factory perfecting their style of Industrial Metal and heading in a slightly darker direction in the process. Rank: for Pedro B. YDload Demanufacture was a landmark album in the Industrial Metal genre.
Fear Factory was and still are a band that emerged with a distinct sound that got them known around the world as a very promising band not only in the genre but in metal as a whole. Burton C. All things considered, it was evident that fans around the world were looking forward to the follow up to the amazing album they brought forth in On it, Burton executes his vocals perfectly, shifting from his relentless screams to soaring clean vocals in a flawless manner.
Dino and Raymond keep up the fast pace of the song with their great combination, and the song is infectiously catchy and addictive. Across the 10 tracks of this album you will find that there is little to no filler at all, and that every song contributes to the concept of the record musically and lyrically. Normally most bands have a top-heavy album that falls off in the middle, but not FF.
Another great song. The set the standard and would be not only an influence on progressive metal and death metal bands in that decade such as Meshuggah and Mnemic , but they would also shape several subgenres such as melodic death metal At The Gates , early Soilwork , Static-X and more commercial industrial bands as well. They birthed a vision uncluttered and sleek, ready to be spoon-fed into our frontal lobes. Though it wasn't a beginning-to-end classic, it was an exceptional album and arguably ushered in the alternative metal era with its fusion of metal styles.
When Fear Factory returned three years later with their follow-up, Demanufacture , the band's groundbreaking style of industrial- and death-informed metal came to fruition, and this time a great many folks did take note, resulting in one of the most successful metal releases of the '90s, commercially as well as artistically.
On the surface, it almost seems like Demanufacture is a rewrite of Soul of a New Machine. Following a couple extreme side projects i.
For instance, vocalist Burton C. Bell unleashes a ferocious death metal growl, yet he can also switch over to a Rob Halford -like vocal style when he wants to grace a given song with soaring melodic vocals for contrast. Moreover, guitarist Dino Cazares straddles the fence between industrial and death metal, as he plays machine-like riffs that chug away in lock step with likewise machine-like drummer Raymond Herrera yet breaks away at any given moment and takes off in a frenzied, very human direction.
This "man-machine" sound -- real people playing real instruments live, though in an industrial, machine-like fashion -- is the essence of Fear Factory , and while Soul of a New Machine may have been the blueprint for this approach to metal one that would be duplicated by a generation of bands within a few years , Demanufacture takes the approach a step further: same band, same idea, same production, same sound; better songs, better performances, better album, better reception.
