Remastered Fear

Posted on February 12, 2008

As one of the first bands in modern metal to mix hardcore with industrial beats and synthesizers, LA’s Fear Factory also experimented with full album remixes long before the practice came into vogue. Beyond that, vocalist, Burton C. Bell took inspiration from singers like Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Andrew Eldridge from Sisters of Mercy and The Mission UK’s Wayne Hussey to forge a distinctive vocal style blending melodic lyrical delivery with aggressive vocals. This year’s 5th studio album ,’Archetype’, saw the band return to their full-on aggressive cybermetal roots. However… forming in 1990, the band released it’s debut, ‘Soul Of A New Machine’, in 1992. Combining both Metal and Industrial elements, Fear Factory laid a groundwork that spawned the classic ‘Demanufacture’ opus and the Gold-selling album ‘Obsolete’ and paved the way for a whole new wave of bands including Filter, Static X & Stabbing Westward. Now from Nov 1 2004, you will be able to get your hands on a special remastered package of ‘Soul Of A New Machine’ that also includes the 1993 ‘Fear Is The Mind Killer’ EP, which showed Fear Factory’s willingness to experiment with its music and broaden its scope by placing tracks from its debut in the hands of remixers Rhys Fulber and Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly.
