Bell’s vocals add approximately nothing to the equation. I doubt it, and for me it could be vaguely categorised as “some shit about a conflict between man and machine”. The main body of the song is driven by Burton C. The band stated the album took its inspiration from the movie The Terminator. The band made quite the change, and it was all for the better. Many of the songs follow this pattern of opening hooks and simple, but crushing riffs and while they may not be the most mind boggling in the greater scope of riffs, they provide plenty of substance and power to enhance the mood of each song.

For an album and a band with a theme about them, they certainly do it well. In my opinion it should be considered as the most dramatic, dark an epic piece ever created by these guys.
PaganbasqueJanuary gear, Pretty nice vocals are nice- pretty nice, meh riffs are ok- but not very. Maybe Fear Factory should just quit or change styles.
Yer Metal Is Olde: Fear Factory – Demanufacture | Angry Metal Guy
The growls were exchanged for angry yelling, and the melodic demanufxcture was cleaned up. The only people I can see buying this album are the die hard Fear Factory fans.
The tear-inducing “Piss Christ” follows the same dealings with the absence and questioning of the the almighty which provides us with notion that maybe we just made the biblical messiah up for the hell on Earth that we create. The instrumentalists are given a strong, if somewhat dry, production.
And why is ‘Demanufacture’ so shit? After the release of the album, some critics and observers suggested that drummer Raymond Herrera had in fact used a drum machinedue to the often blistering speed and machine-like precision of the drumming, most notably on the bass drums.
Retrieved July 21, Maybe I’m just a purist. PseudoGoatKillAugust 29th, Retrieved from ” https: Remember what I said earlier What especially doesn’t do favours for this album that upon comparing it with nu metal of the ’90s, it is clear to see that this could have served as an inspiration or even catalyst for the demanufcature of nu metal in the late ’90s.
It take the facyory groove riff techniques of bands like Machine Head and Pantera and blends it with the cybernetic and mechanical sounds of heavier bands such as Meshuggah to create a robotic behemoth capable of delivering an insidious, futuristic sound that would make you feel as though machine takeover is almost upon us. But calling them the standouts isn’t really fair, as nearly all of demaunfacture album is superb. The second song, Self Blias Resistor, is even heavier, and has an amazing final chorus.
Yer Metal Is Olde: Fear Factory – Demanufacture
CrowTRobotJuly 13th, On the subject of concept, what is the concept here? During the last decades an astonishing amount of works have been released, most of them mediocre, some of them excellent and a few of them masterpieces, but even less deserve the status of groundbreaking or revolutionary as I have said before.
The band makes good demznufacture of the industrial metal and death metal elements on this CD. Any mongoloid can stand up there in a black t-shirt and cargo shorts, trying to look tough and fondling the guitar neck while they show off the one thousand palm-muting variations they came up with in their free time while head banging to the painful shouts of a man being beaten on stage.
When Pisschrist begins an industrial anthem smashes our brains, believe me this song is tremendous!.
Never have I heard anyone utter such foolish words such as “Burton Bell is a great vocalist” or “I draw inspiration from Burton Bell”. He is mediocre at best. And the drumming, it sounds the same on almost every fatory. As for the music itself, I’ll get my complaints out of the way first. Also in residence at the studio was Bon Jovirecording their album These Days.
Finally, the production job doesn’t really aid the album as a whole. The guitars, courtesy of the now-legendary Dino Cazeras, are huge; they’re rich, bassy and epic. It makes Bell’s vocals sound worse, like on “Demanufacture”. Now because ffear how all eleven songs sound the same, you will get very bored listening to the entire album in one sitting.
Overall, the theme of robot overlords and a technological slave state coupled with the slamming, machine-like instrumentation adds to the cutting fantasy and smart mystique of the album and it’s sound.
