    That’s what I’m talking about! “Recharger” just melted my entire face down to the bone. Awesomeness.

    Sounds like Fear Factory alright. Just enough melody too. Solid.

  • boombatza

    how I missed those double bass kicks……

  • damn (your mom’s balls)

    How a metal song should sound. Take notes Machine Head.

      At least Robb Flynn can pull of the vocals (and guitars) live. Burton’s always sort of sucked live.

      • Farts

        I agree, Fear Factory should just completely ditch the clean vocals. As far as the song, it’s good. But, it’s not necessarily getting me excited to the point that I can’t wait to have a copy of the album.

        Shut up Farts, those machine gun riffs will decapitate you and you wont even be able to listen to the album without a head. Ha!

  • cma3585

    Definitely like it more than anything off of Mechanize.

    Sounds like something that you could kill people to. Fear Factory rules!

    I don’t understand the prominence given to Burton and Dino in the marketing for the new album. The promotional vid for The Industrialist seems like a teaser for an upcoming UFC fight rather than one for a metal album and I don’t get what brand or value they’re trying to convey, especially since Dino returned last album.

    As for their sound, Mechanize was far better than the two tracks I’ve heard from this record and it seems that the departure of Byron and Gene really degraded the intensity and quality of the music. Further, I don’t think anyone would complain about the melodic parts of Demanufacture or Obsolete; Burton’s monotonal singing perfectly complements the bleak, industrial sound and imagery Fear Factory is renowned for.

    I love Fear Factory (admittedly much less since Digimortal), but the realization that they probably should’ve retired occurred to me during their 15th anniversary tour, when Burton was lumbering around the stage, beer-gut and ass crack exposed in a futile attempt to recapture his youth, like a bloated, faded rock star, unwilling to accept his decline with grace and self-respect . . . well this and Digimortal.

    I’ve never seen a band so up and down during it’s career. Everything through Obsolete was killer. Digimortal was a turd. Archetype was pretty badass. Transgression was disappointing. Mechanize was a solid return to form. This sounds on par with Mechanize, potentially a bit better.

  • Aggroculture

    Song is tragically bad. It’s clear we’re going to have another Mechanize on our hands: a soulless, flat, one-dimensional parody of what FF once was. Dino and Burton are fools to have not made this a proper reunion. Fools.

  • G Scotty

    This song is…ok. I hope they have more in store for the album, i definitely notice a dip in intensity, Hoglan was impressive for sure. I really dug Mechanize, I will wait to hear the full album before full judgement.
