|Fear Factory - My Ranking|
Recently saw the Static-X - Rise of the Machines Tour in ATL. TBH, I spent my hard-earned money to see an opener, Fear Factory, and less the headliner. And FF's show was excellent btw - Milo Silvestri really brought a lot of energy, and was able to hit both the soaring cleans and harsh vocals. I'm not necessary OG, but came into Fear Factory with the 1995 Mortal Kombat soundtrack (Zero Signal) and 1997's Remanufacture (yes I said Remanufacture, not Demanufacture - it was actually a few years later that I bought Demanufacture). This may not be a popular ranking (for all those who worship Demanufacture), but its' mine.
An absolute force of an album. A bit more living and breathing, in comparison to Dino Albums. “God, help me pour this gas on me”. My tops - I don't care what anyone thinks...
This album is about as unfuckwitable as it gets.
Some of the best vocals that Burton Bell has done in his later career. Recoded really got me into this album - and AC is insanely good.
Rarely my "go to" for a recent listen - but a classic album.
Two words - Final Exit. And the remainder of the album is incredible too.
I know - not everyone's favorite. But some of the best truly industrial FF tracks on this one.
Yes, Transgression. See my prior list "Transgression Recoded". There are some loser tracks - but there are several winners on here as well.
Hurts to put this album this low. Actually - I currently listen to it more than 2, 4, and 6.
Not bad - not great. Not sure why this album fails to hit the mark.
Soul of a New Machine
I'm not a hater (of this or Concrete). Dig several tracks on here (especially those on Fear is the Mindkiller). Just a bit fledgling compared to Demanufacture and Obsolete, and what was to come.
|Kudos for making a list that goes against convention. Mechanize is my favorite|
|Mechanize - one hella album. I remember, when Mechanize dropped, being a bit upset with how things turned out with the other half of the band. But upon hearing it - especially Christploitation, Powershifter, and Final Exit - realized this album was inspired.|
|10 continuing to be underappreciated as always it seems.|
|Milo is doing a good job I see. Voice is powerful with cleans and harsh vox. It’s not easy singing these songs |
|I'm ok with most of this, but I'd definitely have 10 at number 5, XD. Album is hard.|
|holy shit... I expected this list to be shit but it's actually one of the best ones I've seen on here. Literally the only thing I'd change is bump 10 over 9.|
|Agression and Obsolete over Demanu?? You are a brave man... And I completely agree with you. And yes, Archetype is 1 |
|@Muzz79 - I agree on Milo - he has a lot of on-stage presence and interacts well with the crowd. We'll have to see how well he does on the albums. B. Bell will be hard to follow, as he was adept at developing concept albums and accompanying lyrics. |
|interesting and cool ranking|
