Fear Factory are about to drop their latest cyber metal opus 'The Industrialist' on Tuesday, June 5. Vocalist Burton C. Bell recently spoke to Johnny Thrash of 106.3 The Buzz about the fact that the band elected to program the drums, as opposed to using a live skinsman, revealing that the decision expedited the recording process. He also delved deep into the concept behind the album, shedding a little light on exactly who 'The Industrialist' is. Strap yourselves in, metal fans, as you are about to enter a 'Terminator'-like world of sentient automatons, which essentially translates to machines with sensory perception.

Man and machine will collide to form a gnashing, gnawing tangle of cyber metal courtesy of Fear Factory on June 5. The long-running band will release the new album 'The Industrialist' on that very date in North America via Candlelight. It's a 10-song opus with a running time that clocks in at just short of an hour, which gives the band enough time to get in, rattle your brain, force you to mosh and/or headbang and then make its escape.
Ready for riffs gnashing against synths? Well, you're going to get some, thanks to long-running cyber metal crew Fear Factory. The band, which has swapped out its lineup quite dramatically in the past several years, with guitarist Dino Cazares returning to the fold only to see rhythm section comprised of Christian Olde-Wolbers and Raymond Herrera leave the nest, has finished tracking its latest album, titled 'The Industrialist.' Now, it's on to the mixing phase, per a tweet issued by Cazares.
