Performer Notes
  • Fear Factory: Burton C. Bell (vocals); Dino Cazares (guitar); Christian Olde Wolbers (bass); Raymond Herrera (drums, percussion).
  • Additional Personnel: Gary Numan (spoken word); El Feroce, Susie Hodge, Walter Creery, Falstaff Fallen, Monty Washington, Coco Collingwood, Narcisso, Pepe Lamoco, Cleo Ledingham, Chelsea Devon (strings); Rhys Fulber (keyboards, programming); DJ Zodak (scratches).
  • Recorded at Mushroom Studios & Armoury Studios, Vancouver, Canada from February to May, 1998.
  • Canada's Fear Factory is part of the '90s industrial metal scene that, unlike its Luddite '70s/'80s forebears, has no qualms about embracing technology (in this case, synths, programming and even a DJ) in the service of their dark, almost gothic vision. On OBSOLETE, the band owes much of its sound to thrash metal, with churning, gut-punching guitar riffs, sore-throat-from-hell vocals and an unrelentingly ominous mood. What separates Fear Factory from more traditionally inclined thrashers is their aforementioned incorporation of synths to help set the mood. Guest Rhys Fulber's keyboards function both as ambient pads to help establish atmosphere and as melodic elements, underscoring chord progressions. There's even a string section orchestrating the band's more melodic cuts. Look out for a spoken word appearance from electro-gloom godfather Gary Numan on the highly melodic title track.

Professional Reviews

steven Clarke on
This album is defintily a move in the techno direction, but fear factory has always been a metal/ techno type band but theyve been metal with a hint of techno, this album is more techno with a metal base, its still very cool, cars is the funkiest song, its a cover of an old school song, its so awesome
Mike McKenzie on
i didnt really like this album, its definitly Fear Factories worst album with alot of bad songs like Securitron (Police State 2000), Smasher/Devourer: Smasher / Devourer, Resurrection and cars which made me say WTF???!!?!?!?!, just not quality metal at all
blair Loveday on
This is a pretty good album by fear factory, but its worth waiting to find the version with the bonus tracks which include '0-0 (where Evil dwells' and a cover of cars which is very unlike fear factory sounding but really cool all the same, all in all very cool album
