Today, and throughout the week, AOL Music will stream The Industrialist, the forthcoming new full-length from legendary futuristic metal sorcerers FEAR FACTORY. Slated for North American release June 5, The Industrialist is the second album written by vocalist Burton C. Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares since reuniting in 2009 after a seven-year split. Recently commended by Revolver Magazine in a 4/5 review for offering up “the same pulsating, angry urgency of old…nicely counterbalanced by some incredibly deft melodies,” The Industrialist is a conceptual record based around a short story written by Bell. The record again pairs FEAR FACTORY with producer Rhys Fulber and was mixed by Greg Reely (Paradise Lost/Skinny Puppy/Machine Head), with additional tracking by Logan Mader (Gojira/Divine Heresy).
