With those words begins The Industrialist, a new chapter in Fear Factory’s career of ideas and extremes.
The follow-up to 2010's critically acclaimed Mechanize, The Industrialist is a vital chapter in the history of one of the most over-achieving bands in heavy music. It's the Fear Factory machine
at its most confident and passionate, bringing every sonic weapon in its arsenal to the fore.
The shadow of the Los Angeles born band has loomed large, writing the book of industrial metal that has gone on to influence the likes of Rammstein and inform such stalwart noisemongers as Ministry. Fear Factory also merged the idea of melodic vocals erupting from death metal screaming long before it became modern metal's de-riguer.
Over the course of a many storied career that's seen the success of five critically acclaimed albums plus a remix ep and album, Fear Factory has had a career of creative and commercial success, selling over three million records worldwide: they've also been plagued by bitter infighting and have emerged from it all in 2012 with a new alloy of aggression.
