Ever since their 1992 debut, Soul of a New Machine, Fear Factory have pushed the envelope in their balance of clean and scream. For album number nine, due later in the year, the band has found a new lyrical spin on the theme that informs so much of its writing.
Fear Factory have unveiled the lyric video for their new single, "Soul Hacker." The track is taken from the band's new album, Genexus, which hits stores August 7 via Nuclear Blast. You can pre-order it right here.
Look around you. There seems to be a seven-string renaissance happening at the moment. Actually, eight-string guitars seem to be going pretty strong, too. But there's something particularly satisfying about plugging in a seven and riffing out in between the traditional ranges of the guitar and bass.
The Retribution pickups were designed with Dino Cazares of Fear Factory and Divine Heresy to provide the essential attack, clarity and increased headroom that 7- and 8-string players like Dino have been asking for.
After welcoming back guitarist Dino Cazares into the band and putting out a successful seventh studio album Mechanize in early 2010, modern metal giants Fear Factory have returned. Their follow-up album, The Industrialist, is ready to release early next month. This conceptual record also features bassist Matt DeVries on bass, who has replaced Byron Stroud.
Industrial metal stalwarts Fear Factory released their new single, "Recharger," today, and the song — which fans will be pleased to know does indeed sound like vintage Fear Factory — can be streamed via the widget below.
