This isn't all that new, but I haven't seen it reviewed here so what the hell, right? Right.

As cliché as it may sound, this is a real "return to form" for Fear Factory (if you don't count a few members missing, but that's not the issue here). It's as heavy as they get, and really high energy. There isn't much in terms of spacey atmospheric numbers, which is good, because that shit was getting tired. Just hard, fast, pulverizing industrial metal (or whatever fuckin' sub-sub-genre it's considered to be...). Personal faves include "Mechanize", "Industrial Discipline", "Oxidizer", "Controlled Demolition" and "Designing the Enemy" (which starts off slow and goes bananas - fun).

7 out of 10.

New one was good, but as with all Fear Factory albums, they get boring fast because of their simplicity.
