When Roadrunner Records issued Fear Factory's "unreleased" first album, Concrete, in 2002, it marked the close of a long-incomplete chapter in the early history of this groundbreaking band. But as significant as that album was historically, it was even more important for another reason: it led Fear Factory to a deal with Roadrunner Records & the recording of their "official" debut album, Soul Of A New Machine, unleashing a new force in the world of metal. Combining both metal & industrial elements, Fear Factory laid a groundwork on Soul Of A New Machine & their subsequent remix EP Fear Is The Mindkiller (also included on this expanded remaster). The band paved the way not only for their follow-up albums - ultimately resulting in the Gold-selling Obsolete - but also for a whole new wave of bands such as Filter, Static-X & Stabbing Westward. With this newly expanded, remastered edition, fans can once again experience both the sheer brutality & inescapable beauty of this prototypical metal masterpiece.

I think a lot of Fear Factory fans make the mistake of hearing Obsolete and expect the rest of their albums sound the same. Read morePublished on Jan. 30 2003 by Brad
One of the best Death Metal Albums I heve ever heard. The whole cd is hard and scary sounding. The guitar work is heavy and boy does it groove well. Read morePublished on Jan. 9 2003 by Kevin Glenn

I do not yet own this, but I have heard the entire album on the internet and this is unlike anything else you'll ever hear by any heavy metal artist. Read morePublished on July 24 2002 by Rob Cary
First of all (although having only heard little off of Remanufacture), I say this is the order of FF's CD's (least to greatest). Read morePublished on Jan. 12 2002 by "xmetalheadx"
