Mechanize [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When Dino Cazares' band Divine Heresy was gaining more and more momentum in 2007 and 2008, it seemed doubtful that he would ever be a part of Fear Factory again. But in 2009, the guitarist surprised the metal world by reuniting with vocalist Burton C. Bell in a new Fear Factory lineup that also included bassist Byron Stroud and drummer Gene Hoglan (known for his contributions to Strapping Young Lad, Dark Angel, and other bands). Meanwhile, guitarist/bassist Christian Olde-Wolbers and drummer Ray Herrera -- having left Fear Factory -- were keeping busy with their band Arkaea that year. Mechanize is Fear Factory's first album since Cazares' return, and the ...

When Dino Cazares' band Divine Heresy was gaining more and more momentum in 2007 and 2008, it seemed doubtful that he would ever be a part of Fear Factory again. But in 2009, the guitarist surprised the metal world by reuniting with vocalist Burton C. Bell in a new Fear Factory lineup that also included bassist Byron Stroud and drummer Gene Hoglan (known for his contributions to Strapping Young Lad, Dark Angel, and other bands). Meanwhile, guitarist/bassist Christian Olde-Wolbers and drummer Ray Herrera -- having left Fear Factory -- were keeping busy with their band Arkaea that year. Mechanize is Fear Factory's first album since Cazares' return, and the Cazares/Bell/Stroud/Hoglan lineup doesn't disappoint. This early 2010 release/2009 recording doesn't break any new ground for the band -- Mechanize is very much a throwback to the industrialized Fear Factory sound of the '90s -- but there is no shortage of passion on scorching tracks like "Christploitation," "Designing the Enemy," "Oxidizer," and "Industrial Discipline" (which is an appropriate name for a Fear Factory tune in light of the major role they played in bringing industrial elements to alternative metal). If Mechanize lacks the freshness that characterized Fear Factory on Soul of a New Machine, Demanufacture, or Obsolete back in their '90s heyday, that doesn't make the performances any less inspired or focused. Cazares (who left Fear Factory in 2002 and spent seven years away from the band) is still a sledgehammer of a guitarist, and he plays like he is thrilled to be a part of Fear Factory again. Mechanize isn't quite in a class with Demanufacture or Obsolete, which are widely regarded as two of Fear Factory's most essential releases. But it's still an album that longtime followers will welcome. [The album was also released with a second disc containing three demo songs and a bonus track.]

    Welcome Back Fear Factory!!

    never thought i'd see the day when Dino and Burton would mend the bridge, but it's awesome it happened. i recall hearing the song "Powershifter" on Dino's myspace music page. thinking it was a new/un-released Divine Heresy song i checked it out. as soon as i heard the vocals i went, "hey! that's Burton C. Bell!". and the rest started to click. found interviews stating he and Dino had healed their friendship, music was one the way, the whole nine yards. an extra bonus was learning Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Death, Strapping Young Lad, DethkloK, Mechanism) was on drums.

    anyways, onto the actual review (heh).

    Mechanize is a Great FF release. has just about everything a longtime FF listener has come to know and love-- Burton's classic vocal stylings, industrial elements, machine-gun guitars and drumming. the Production is Solid too. just about every percussive instruments is clear and powerful-- no means muffled like i've been hearing on a lot of recent metal albums. id purchased the Deluxe version so the bonus material was fun to listen to (their '91 demo definitely shows their youth). only negative is it took a bit longer than originally expected to ship but it's here and that's what matters. you won't be disappointed with Mechanize!
