It wasn't long ago Fear Factory were claiming that "the soul of this machine has improved", following the departure of founding member, axe-man Dino. A questionable album and a legal case later, and Mechanize appears to be the band's seventh and latest full-length. Raymond and Christian do not feature on this album, Dino is back with his multiple-string guitar for the first time since Digimortal. For the first time ever the band also sees a new drummer, going by that familiar name of Gene Hoglan.

Rating: 9 For me Christploitation is the best track of the album.. I like this track very much..
I never even thought about Fear Factory without Raymond Herrera, but Gene Hoglan has done the job so well..
Introspekrieg - 07.02.2010 at 07:08  
  Is this real Fear Factory? Or shell-of-themselves Fear Factory?

EDIT: Listened to Industrial Discipline, definitely sounds like Demanufacture-era, awesome

Rating: 9 Awesome album.
I adore the song "Final Exit".

  I just been a concert in last month in Melbourne.
just tell everyone know one thing!
fucking awesome concert and Hoglen so amazing for FF
Uirapuru - 08.02.2010 at 19:56  
  Yeah. Very good album, kinda back to the peak of their carrer on some early 90ths albums..

Althou I really liked their new direction as well (Designing the Enemy and Final Exit are the closer we get from that phase), this is a good comeback. Just like Paradise Lost and a whole bunch of bands, they release something heavier and in contact with their roots after a sequence of contested albuns.

Christploitation, Controlled Demolition and Final Exit are my highlights.

  This album album is fucking amazing!!
StRicardo6 - 10.02.2010 at 19:51  
  Really nice surprise for me...After Demanufacture they shut out just one album(Archetype) who not make me bored after listen couple of times....And now this monster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome album.
I adore the song "Final Exit".

Yes! this song makes me think of people close to me I have lost and of my own existence.
A very well done song!

Rating: 9 Awesome album, their best since Demanufacture without a shade of doubt.

I definitely agree with you. The first four songs are cool but the album really climaxes with Christploitation and this creepy piano sound. The second half of the album is rather dull after this song.

Yeah I dunno what it is specifically about that sound, it's not wildly different from their other tracks but it definitely feels unusual, the piano intro/interlude/outro shows that the FF sound mixes incredibly well with atmospheric effects whilst remaining stupidly heavy. And yeah, again it's the filler tracks which stop the album being truly great.

For me Christploitation is the best track of the album..


Agreed. Ive only listened to the album once in full, which was when it first came out. (I'll listen to it again before giving my rating )

And although I liked a fair few tracks on the album, ''Christploitation" was really the only one which stuck out to me as being a truly classic Fear Factory track. \m/

Rating: 10 With this album has proved that they needed Dino Cazares again, the true key to making this great album.

Long live to Fear Factory

  I became sad when Herrera and Olde Wolbers left the band, but Hoglan and Stroud were spectacular substitutes.
I think this album a little "happy" than Demanufacture or Archetipe, but in a long time i fell that the guys were having a lot lot of fun in the studio.

Great album, one of the best industrial metal ever.
musicalkaratekid - 23.09.2012 at 00:19  
Rating: 9 Such a solid album, and the performance of each instrument is stellar. There are some truly brilliant musical moments here in 'Industrial Discipline' and 'Powershifter', and then more melodic moments in 'Designing the Enemy' and epic closer 'Final Exit'. It's a superb sound, and one that marked the true return of FF in all their glory.
majohadica - 21.08.2013 at 08:27  
Rating: 10 The best album of my favourite band.
Jokerslayer777 - 19.09.2013 at 19:19  
  Their third best album. Hoglan is a fucking genius, burton is very good .
Best songs: the first 4 songs and final exit (my favourite)

Best FF album since Obsolete!

I remember preferring Archetype, but then again, I haven't listened to Fear Factory in ages, and have never really been a big fan of theirs.

Fair enough.

Archetype never did it for me. First track was good but then it all kinda went a bit too clean singing orientated for my liking.

My favourite are their 1st 3 though!

I was about to re-listen to this, but then Demanufacture "accidentally" began playing. That album is really where Fear Factory shine for me.
