On their latest produced by ex-Front Line Assembly member Rhys Fulber, the quartet offers more of the same sound, with a bit of experimentation thrown in for good measure, such as the use of violins, cellos, and violas on a few of the tracks. "Shock" kicks things off with the classic Fear Factory sound: mechanic heavy metal with vocals that morph from growls to hymn-like chants. Also of note is the title track, which features...

On their latest produced by ex-Front Line Assembly member Rhys Fulber, the quartet offers more of the same sound, with a bit of experimentation thrown in for good measure, such as the use of violins, cellos, and violas on a few of the tracks. "Shock" kicks things off with the classic Fear Factory sound: mechanic heavy metal with vocals that morph from growls to hymn-like chants. Also of note is the title track, which features a robotic spoken word dialogue from industrial godfather Gary Numan, and contains slightly off-time drums that help to heighten the already existing musical tension.

[Obsolete is also available in an import release with bonus tracks.]
