Fear Factory posted a new song preview from their upcoming album The Industrialist (due out April 24th) yesterday on their YouTube channel, you can listen to it at the end of this post. The clip is 49 seconds off the song “Recharger”. I know it’s very hard to judge one song off of only a few seconds and specially listening to it on your laptop, but it sounds promising, it sounds Fear Factory so to speak.
I used to listen alot to this band around 1995-1999 specially when they released the album Demanufacture wich i still think is a great album along with their debut Soul Of A New Machine. After their third album Obsolete, wich had a few good tracks on it, i kind of lost interest in the band. I gave the band a new chance when they released Archetype back in 2004 and it was okey i think, just as with Obsolete it had a few really good songs on it but nothing more and i rarely play that album nowadays. But with Mechanize released in 2010 i think they pulled off a really good album wich reminded me of the good old Soul Of A New Machine / Demanufacture days so i really hope that this new album will be as good.
As for the albumcover, see picture, i must say i love it! Reminds of some cross-over of The Terminator and Mad Max. Stylish and it fits the bands music very well i think.
