    Archetype

    • Year Released: 2004
    Archetype is the fifth studio album by Los Angeles industrial metal band Fear Factory. It was released on April 19, 2004 through Liquid 8. This album is not a concept album like the previous three studio albums. The music on this album returns to the style of the Demanufacture era which pleased many fans. Archetype was also issued in a Limited Edition Digipak with a bonus DVD. Depending on where the digipak was obtained, the bonus DVD is either for their "Australian Tour 2004" and the video for "Cyberwaste" or one based around The Making of Archetype. Some, though not all, versions of the bonus digipak also included a gold ticket that gave the owner a chance to meet Fear Factory live. All lyrics written by Burton C. Bell except "School" by Kurt Cobain, all music composed by Bell/Herrera/Wolbers except where noted. Album - Billboard (North America)

    Concrete

    • Year Released: 1991
    Concrete is a demo album of the early Fear Factory, recorded in 1991 as pre-Soul of a New Machine cuts and re-released on July 30, 2002 on CD. Although released in 2002, Concrete was originally recorded in 1991 in Blackie Lawless' studios. It was intended to be their first release, but the band wasn't happy with the record deal they were in, so they ditched their producer, Ross Robinson. When they were taken to court, Robinson won the rights to the album, and the band won the rights to songs. So Fear Factory ended up re-recording eight of the tracks from this album for their official 1992 debut, Soul of a New Machine. Incidentally, Robinson ended up using this album to promote himself, which would eventually lead him to producing Korn, which would make him the most sought-out nu metal producer of the 1990s. The band's record label (Roadrunner) released this album after their (now temporary) breakup to fulfill their contractual duties. Track 3, "Concrete" was later renamed as "Concreto" and rerecorded as a b-side for the "Dog Day Sunrise" single and later appeared as a bonus track for the Obsolete digipak. Track 15, "Piss Christ" is not to be confused with the song of the same name

    Demanufacture

    • Year Released: 1995
    Demanufacture is the second studio album (not including the EP Fear Is the Mindkiller) by the Los Angeles industrial metal band Fear Factory. This is the band's first album with their classic line-up adding new bassist Christian Olde Wolbers. Many regard it as the band's best album and a heavy metal classic. The album was certified Gold in Australia by ARIA and Silver in the UK by the BPI. Demanufacture is a concept album about a man's struggles against a machine-controlled government, with each song a chapter in his life. The band stated the album took its inspiration from the movie, The Terminator. This album was originally mixed by its producer Colin Richardson, who had performed both duties on the band's debut album. However, differences between the band and producer emerged over the mix, with Richardson wishing not to stray too far from Soul of a New Machine. In the 2005 re-release liner notes, Monte Conner notes Richardson's focus on the guitars at the expense of the electronics, and suggests that this is the reason for the rejection of Richardson's mix. The final mix for the album was subsequently performed by Greg Reely, Rhys Fulber and the band. The Richardson mixes of

    Digimortal

    • Year Released: 2001
    Digimortal is Fear Factory's fourth studio album, released on April 24, 2001 by Roadrunner Records. It is a concept album and a sequel to Obsolete, their previous album (which was a continuation to Demanufacture) and the final part of a trilogy. This was the band's last album before officially breaking up in March 2002. Although Digimortal was not a commercial success, this was not given as reason for the band's breakup, instead citing frontman Burton C. Bell's desire to "form a band that's more indie-rock-oriented." Fear Factory would officially reform in 2003, however, to begin work on their next album, Archetype. Digimortal was the last to feature founding guitarist/songwriter Dino Cazares for seven years until his return to the band in 2009. In February 2000, Fear Factory reported working on their follow-up to Obsolete. No lyrics had been written and the band had decided to shift away from their typical approach to creating a record. They also wanted a less-produced sound and stated that the new album would not be concept-based as their previous two were. The latter would ultimately not hold true. Already, Alternative Press was describing it as one of the most anticipated

    Mechanize

    • Year Released: 2010
    Mechanize is the seventh studio album by Fear Factory. It is the only album to feature Gene Hoglan on drums and the first since 2001's Digimortal to include original guitarist and founding member Dino Cazares who rejoined the band after a reconciliation with vocalist Burton C. Bell in April 2009. It is also the last album to feature Byron Stroud as bassist after he was replaced by former Chimaira rhythm guitarist Matt DeVries in February 2012. The album was produced by Rhys Fulber, who had not produced a Fear Factory album since Digimortal. This is also the first Fear Factory album to feature an 8-string guitar. In its first week of release the album sold 10,000 copies. On April 7, 2009, vocalist Burton C. Bell and ex-guitarist Dino Cazares announced the reconciliation of their friendship, and the formation of a new project with Fear Factory bassist Byron Stroud and drummer Gene Hoglan of Strapping Young Lad. On April 28, this project was revealed to be a new version of Fear Factory that effectively excluded former members Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers. Asked about the circumstances of their exclusion, Bell stated that "[Fear Factory]'s like a business and I'm just

    Obsolete

    • Year Released: 1998
    Obsolete (styled °BSΩLE+e on the album cover) is the third studio album by American industrial metal band Fear Factory, released on July 28, 1998. Conceptually, it is a sequel to 1995's Demanufacture. With the success of its fourth single, "Cars," a Gary Numan cover, Obsolete would break Fear Factory into the mainstream and remain their highest selling album. The group began writing and pre-production in late 1997. This came to a sudden halt when Ozzy Osbourne invited Fear Factory to open for the reunited Black Sabbath at two sold-out stadium shows at the Birmingham NEC. Fear Factory also headlined their own concert on December 7 in London. The band intended to return to work on their album in Los Angeles until late January when they would record in Vancouver with producers Rhys Fulber and Greg Reely. The working title Obsolete was announced during this time although not certain to remain. In a first, guitarist Dino Cazares tuned down to A for this album. Gary Numan appears on the cover of his song "Cars." A concept story is contained within the music and continues where Demanufacture left off. Obsolete is about the future of mankind and how machines have taken over humanity. It

    Resurrection

    • Year Released: 1998
    Resurrection is an EP by the American metal band Fear Factory. It was released on September 14, 1998. "Resurrection" is one of singer Burton C. Bell's favorite Fear Factory songs. It is the ninth and longest track on the 1998 concept album Obsolete. The album version runs 6:35. The song highlights the thoughts of the album's protagonist, the dissident Edgecrusher, as he flees the oppressing forces of Securitron. Having witnessed an act of self-immolation during a protest and the subsequent dispersal of the crowd by armed forces, Edgecrusher flees to a church where he discovers a statue of Jesus, which he touches, giving him the courage to continue his personal mission against the government. Allmusic's review of Obsolete stated, "The album's biggest surprise however is 'Resurrection,' which is perhaps the most tuneful song Fear Factory have ever done, without compromising their heavy sound."

    Soul of a New Machine

    • Year Released: 1992
    Soul of a New Machine is the debut studio album (not counting the 1991 album Concrete) by the Los Angeles, California metal band Fear Factory. It was released on August 25, 1992. The album was remastered and re-released on October 5, 2004 in a digipak, packaged together with the remastered Fear Is the Mindkiller EP. Guitarist Dino Cazares has stated that this album is a concept album, concerning man's creation of a machine that could be either technological or governmental. It was also confirmed by bassist Christian Olde Wolbers in an interview. The machine-human connection would play a more prominent role in the later Fear Factory concept albums. The sound of the album is different from the later albums for it was heavily influenced by Napalm Death and Godflesh, therefore this one featured more of a death metal and grindcore sound. Many feel this album is ground breaking as this is the first album to mix death growls with clean vocals. While Fear Factory's main concept is man vs. machine, this album featured different themes. "Martyr" is about how Burton C. Bell was bored with his lifestyle; "Leechmaster" and "Manipulation" are about relationship troubles; "Scapegoat" was based on

    The Best of Fear Factory

    The Best of Fear Factory

    • Year Released: 2006
    The Best of Fear Factory is a best-of compilation album released on Roadrunner Records, featuring a collection of Fear Factory's music with the label (as such, Archetype and Transgression material are not included). The record was released without Fear Factory's involvement (they were signed to Liquid 8 Records at the time of the album's release), so it's unlikely that the album is officially recognized by the band themselves. Songs from Concrete, as well as their various compilation, live, and remix albums, are not included. The album was released on September 12, simultaneously with similarly unsanctioned best-of collections of the bands Sepultura, Type O Negative, and Ill Niño.

    The Industrialist

    • Year Released: 2012
    The Industrialist is the eighth studio album by industrial metal band Fear Factory, released on June 5, 2012. The Industrialist marks the band's return to the concept album. Burton C. Bell said about the album, "the protagonist (The Industrialist) is the incarnation of all industries in the form of an automaton. The mechanical, technological, and scientific advances through the industrial age led to the creation of The Industrialist. In the story, the automaton becomes sentient as it collects memories with each passing day. Through observation and learning, it gains the will to exist. What was meant to help man, will eventually be man’s demise." According to Cazares, the title was taken from a documentary the band saw about the people who developed "the engines for war machines", and God Eater was a name Bell saw on a toybox while traveling. The album was recorded with Bell and Cazares as the only two credited members of the band, while Rhys Fulber once again produced and received additional writing credits. No live drummer was used on the album, with the band instead opting for programmed drums with help from John Sankey of Devolved, who was also credited. There are four different
