New album in spring: The Industrialist. Hopefully better than the disappointment that was Mechanize.

De/Remanufacture and Obsolete are a couple of my favorite metal albums of all time. It's good to see they are still around but anything after obsolete kinda fell flat for me. Some good songs here and their but nothing that really grabbed me. It would be cool to see them again though.

Mechanize was awesome

To each his/her own, but I hated it. Seemed as though in the quest to be heavy at all costs FF sacrificed their winning interplay between riff, groove, and subtle electronica, coming up with an album that sounded like any random 2011 metal release. Hopefully here they go back to what made FF great (Demanufacture-through-Digimortal era). The obvious solution of course would be to invite Herrera and Wolbers back in the band.

Haven't liked a single thing since Obsolete, but that's just me.

IMO, Mechanize is the best thing to come since Obsolete. Mechanize had a lot of balls. Lots of energy. I thought it was great. Especially considering how skeptical I was originally was after the fact that Burton decided to do some spring cleaning. But I ended being pleasantly surprised.

Plus I love Gene Hoglan and he dominates on that album.

Obsolete is the best. Edgecrusher....hell yes.

As for other endeavors, albums since have been decent and in the true Fear Factory spirit.

I love all of their albums, minus a few songs here and there. Looking forward to this one, of course.

so, the industrialist is pretty solid. there seems to be a lot of negativity towards the programmed drums, but it sounds good to me and makes sense for this band. there have also been a lot of negative comments about how it sounds too much like demanufacture, which i figured people would love. anyway, would anyone have a copy of the obsolete demos they could send my way? i deleted them by accident and i can't find them anywhere.

New album is kicking my ass. It might be my favourite FF album...ever. The production is awesome and the guitars shred.

New album comes out in a few weeks and this thread is buried...

Really looking forward to this record. There honestly hasn't been an album that this band has released that I didn't like. Even Transgression had its moments.

Gene kills it. That guy plays drums like a machine does.

It's OK after 2 listens. Gotta really sit down with it though. Burton sounds great as usual, doesn't feel forced like the last one.
