Industrial death metal legends FEAR FACTORY have completed a new album which will arrive in 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The news comes via vocalist Burton C. Bell, who had the following to say amid a recent interview with mirp411.com:
“Fear Factory has a record done. It’s delivered to the label. We’re just waiting for some legal technicalities [to be resolved]. And the record will be out next year.”
With Genexus, Fear Factory forged a new hyper-alloy of sound, extreme and idea. “We wanted to create a new hybrid,” states guitarist and founding songwriter, Dino Cazares. “Something that summed up every aspect of who we are. Musically. Lyrically. You can hear the organic, the technological; the past and the future. It’s the next evolution of Fear Factory.”
Genexus is the sound of Fear Factory in-extremis. Co-produced by the band with longtime collaborator, Rhys Fulber, and mixed by Andy Sneap (Testament, Killswitch Engage, Trivium), it’s Fear Factory bringing every weapon in its sonic arsenal to bear. From the concrete-breaking staccato riffs that open the record with “Autonomous Combat System” to the soaring melodies of “Dielectric” to the album’s elegiacal closer, “Expiration Date,” Genexus is an unforgiving and unforgettable statement from a band that has long pushed the boundaries of extreme music.
