For the purists out there, this version of Fear Factory that only features original members Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares just doesn't measure up as the "real deal". To those people, I hope you enjoy missing out on one of the greatest resurgences in all of heavy metal. Without question, Fear Factory was at a point where it was time to give it up and do other things. Albums like ARCHETYPE and TRANSGRESSION were just shells of the former intensity that the band had possessed, and most thought these guys were done. Still, Bell rekindled his relationship with Cazares, pushed aside other original members, and forged ahead. If it did nothing else, the extremely solid MECHANIZE proved that the fire in the band was always spawned from the riffs of Cazares and the voice of Bell. With THE INDUSTRIALIST, they have seemingly taken it all the way back to their best era of the band.
