Ever since their 1992 debut, Soul of a New Machine, Fear Factory have pushed the envelope in their balance of clean and scream. For album number nine, due later in the year, the band has found a new lyrical spin on the theme that informs so much of its writing.
The Retribution pickups were designed with Dino Cazares of Fear Factory and Divine Heresy to provide the essential attack, clarity and increased headroom that 7- and 8-string players like Dino have been asking for.
After welcoming back guitarist Dino Cazares into the band and putting out a successful seventh studio album Mechanize in early 2010, modern metal giants Fear Factory have returned. Their follow-up album, The Industrialist, is ready to release early next month. This conceptual record also features bassist Matt DeVries on bass, who has replaced Byron Stroud.
