Legendary industrial metallers FEAR FACTORY have announced the date and details of release of their ninth studio album
May 22, 2015
‘Genexus’ is the title of the band’s upcoming ninth studio record, which is due on August 7 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Co-produced by longtime band partner Rhys Fulber, Fear Factory’s own guitarist Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C. Bell, ‘Genexus’ promises to be “a very special Fear Factory album,” states Dino Cazares (via Blabbermouth). “While being careful not to replicate ourselves, this album still has a very classic Fear Factory vibe that we feel will appease both old and new fans. The aggressive, melodic and industrial elements are all intact and shine more than ever.”
As for the music direction on the upcoming record, Cazares said the following: “It’s still just to be who we are. We are ‘cyber metal,’ whatever you wanna call it, but it’s still a lot of the killer riffs, killer double bass, Burt’s beautiful, melodic vocals. Conceptually, it’s always still futuristic, man-versus-machine type of thing, but, you know, we thought we’re gonna keep it real, keep it what we are and who we are.”
And if you haven’t heard the band’s recent news, not so long ago Fear Factory parted ways with bassist Matt DeVries and welcomed ex-Static-X’s Tony Campos. The band is currently touring with another new member, drummer Mike Heller. Catch Fear Factory on the road this July, accompanied by Coal Chamber.
