Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks. The Industrialist is a vital chapter in the history of one of the most over-achieving bands in heavy music history. It is Fear Factory at its most confident and passionate; the band bringing every sonic weapon in its arsenal to the fore. Many have likened 2010 s Mechanize to Fear Factory's debut album, Soul of the New Machine. That said, in short time The Industrialist, is expected to be likened to the band's pivotal album, Demanufacture. Revisiting and refining the sweeping melodies and unforgettable songwriting that would forever distinguish Fear Factory from all others, the sound and creative storyline that is The Industrialist will without doubt carve itself a spot on the short list of Best Metal Albums of 2012.
