It’s safe to say that if you are familiar with any of FEAR FACTORY’S previous work (who isn’t hey?) then you pretty much know what to expect here. Industrial chugga-chugga guitar riffs that sync with the bass, near-mechanical & inhuman drumming, Industrial noises, heavy vocal verses, clean vocal choruses and songs about machines one day taking over the world…
As far as an Angel reunion goes, there has been talk about it. I’ve always said it has to be the original band and someone would have to bankroll it to ensure its done right.
Before you delve any further into this review, let me say right off the bat that this album isn’t for everyone. Regular readers of MGM will note that the site generally steers away from anything that can be classified in some way as ‘core’, especially when another word is combined with it to create the contentious title of “metalcore”. But due to my overwhelming desire to keep you guys up to date with all of the great things the Australian rock & metal scene is doing these days I am more than happy to go a little out of the boundaries when I feel that something is worthy of a mention.
