5.0 out of 5 stars The machine is now alive May 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Brutal, tight, furious. These are the proper words to describe this industrial-metal masterpiece. In my other reviews I've already stated that "Demanufacture" is one of the four albums that elevated industrial-metal genre from zero level to state-of-the-art perfection and spawned countless clones.
Fear Factory style is different from what other icons of the genre like Ministry or Nine Inch Nails have to offer. After all, in the beginning Fear Factory played Napalm Death-style death-metal, and it shows. The music is built with incredibly catchy and rhythmically effective guitar riffs backed by similar sounding bass-lines. Think of the riff in Ministry's "Thieves" and you get the idea. Drumming is absolutely superb. The speed and precision of those double-bass kicks is incredible, I even thought it was a drum-machine. But it was not. To add even more industrial feel to the sound, various factory noises are played in the background. Burton C. Bell varies his vocal tone from angry death-style rasps to clean anthemic singing. The latter, being sound-processed with a little reverb, makes the record sound kinda epic at times. The album is a relentless sonic attack, that, being played at considerable volume settings, has all the power to knock you off your feet and shatter glass windows.
Conceptual lyrics add more depth to the album. They tell a story of a man who grew tired of government lies and started up a rebellion. In the end he turns into a killing machine, then surrenders to regret, but when death comes, it refuses to take him away, so he has yet another day to live. Not the finest story, but it mixes with aggressive industrial music perfectly.
This album is one of the landmarks of rock, and surely Fear Factory's finest hour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fear Factory's best CD May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my all time favourite cds, even though it took me a few years to appreciate how great it really is. It is great all the way through, but certain songs stick out for me like pisschrist and demanufacture. I think pisschrist is the best on the album, with the brilliant and catchy main riff, awsome industrial samples, and a great combination of heavy vocals at the start and melodic vocals at the end. Increadibly catchy, this is my favourite FF song by far. H/K is probably one of the heaviest songs on the album, along with Flashpoint or New Breed. Demanufacture is a great way to start off the album, starting kind of low then building it up in a matter of seconds to full out distortion with a powerful attack, classic FF style. Self Bias Resistor has an awsome groove overall and a very catchy chorus. Zero Signal has more keyboards and melodic singing in it than normal FF, but still ends up doing an awsome job at it. Body Hammer and Replica are average tracks, which is still saying a lot considering this entire album is awsome. The digipack also has a cover of Agnostic Front's Your Mistake and Resistancia!, along with remixes of New Breed and Replica. My favourite of the bonus tracks is Resistancia! because it is really heavy and catchy. Another cover that appears on this CD is Head of David's Dog Day Sunrise, which also doesn't seem like typical FF but still fits in with the album. A Therapy for Pain ends the normal (not digipack) album the way FF will for the rest of their CDs - melodic yet powerful and very catchy.
This is fear factory's best album by far in my opinion, and is worth your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars "They Have Tried To Break You..." April 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think I can sum up this album in one word:
No, really.
Rarely do I hear an album that reached right out and hit me like this one did when I first bought/heard it. Now, before I did, I already knew "Zero Signal" because I had it on a mix, and I could have already vouched for what an incredible song that is. But this whole album is just... wow. I can think of some more words to describe this album:
HEAVY AS HELL, fast, angry, powerful, ethereal, futuristic, ahead of its time, catchy, haunting, etc.
Take for instance, the first song, the title track: "Demanufacture". Starts off with a fairly heavy riff (courtesy of Dino Cazares, one of the most underrated guitarists of our time), accompanied by lead singer Burton C. Bell singing. Not too threatening, right? Wrong. For the chorus, it kicks into overdrive, and you're blasted by heavy-as-all-hell guitars and Burton yelling his lungs out. And it only gets harder from there. It's my favorite song on the album, and it's a good indicator of the rest of the album to come. "Self Bias Resistor" gives you a nice kick in the [edit], but has a melodic chorus to die for. "Zero Signal"... masterpiece. 'Nuff said. All of the other tracks rule as well, but the curveball in the album, "Dog Day Sunrise", is actually really impressive. It actually features no yelling, just singing. But it remains fairly heavy. Many don't like it, but I love it.
The musicianship here is tight as all hell. As I said, Dino is underrated as an axeman. Just because he plays a downtuned 7-string Ibanez and doesn't solo, people write him off as talentless. Untrue. Check out the heaviness and speed of his playing. And Raymond Herrera (drums)... he's a robot. That's the only explanation I can come up with.
