New Fear Factory album ‘Archetype’ is due to hit the streets Spring 2004. í¢äåñI don’t really think about being a pioneer,í¢äå says Burton. í¢äåñBut looking back at our records and what Fear Factory has accomplished in the past 12 years, I see there’s been an effect on the scene. People have followed suit to what we’ve done. There have been bands doing remix records, and people have also heard my vocals and thought, ‘Wow he’s so heavy, but then he switches to actual singing. That’s a great idea!’í¢äå Fear Factory continues in the groundbreaking style many have emulated but none have duplicated on its upcoming fifth full-length release, Archetype. í¢äåñWhen you look up the definition of the word, Archetype, it’s the actual model from which everything else is copied,í¢äå says Burton. í¢äåñFear Factory is that in my opinion, and Archetype is a defining moment for us. Listen to this record, and you’ll know exactly where all these other bands came from.í¢äå You can read more in the new Fear Factory biography HERE.
