    Agree, Torture - Storm Alert is awesome. Still trying to track down a copy of Terror Kingdom.

    The new Fear Factory is pretty damn good. Their last two albums have been awesome, thanks to Gene replacing Ray and Dino being back.

    Gene's not on the new album, it's a drum machine.

    He was great on Mechanize.

    I still have to check out The Industrialist and have only heard two songs, but a lot people are complaining about the band using a drum machine on the album. The thing is Gene's drumming on Mechanize and the drum machine sound exactly the same. Who cares. Pitchshifter and Godflesh used drum machines and no one thought anything of it.

    They don't, though. Gene is a very skilled drummer and able to make far more tasteful and musical drumming than they could just programming into a machine. If you've ever seen his DVD, the amount of little things he does to add taste (He's huge on the word "taste" in his drumming) to even blast beats; for example not only hitting in the center of the snare to toy with the amount of ring, or accenting certain hits on the ride cymbal.

    I'm not saying he didn't play mechanically, I mean that's FF's style, but Gene adds a lot more than a drum machine can do. As for the other two bands, well... they're industrial-tinged. Duh. That's what they do. It's like saying no one complains about an electronica band using synths. That's kinda the genre.

    I was not a FF fan and Mechanize kicks my ass every fucking time. One of my top 5 from 2010. TI is ok, but not on the same level.

    And I'd honestly say a significant reason is Gene's presence. He makes a big difference on any album he's on. Fuck, look at Dethklok.

    As somebody who converted to metal from the whole Chariot/Norma Jean/Botch/Dillinger scene, you have opened my eyes to this weird connection between what feels like a past life and my newer outlook on music.

    Very good prog.alt.melancholic rock/metal, I will definitely recommend this album to fans of Riverside, Anathema, Katatonia, Type O Negative, Klimt 1918 and Novembre.

    Regarding FF;

    Mechanize was really awesome. Gene's drumming was inhuman, but it sounds nothing like a drum machine - yes, it's mechanical in nature, but there is Gene's flair definitely present in the music - he is truly one of metal's greatest.

    New FF album - having a hard time getting into it. Need to give it a few more spins, but I really think they should have gone with a proper drummer - I read that they went with the drum machine to cut down on the costs of hiring a drummer - this was a mistake in my opinion.

    ^Agree with everything. New album was good, but nothing stood out on it. It was missing the good old fear factory charisma.



    Damn to hell, that was the time...
