Fear Factory’s ‘Demanufacture’ Turns 20

Fear Factory’s ‘Demanufacture’ Turns 20

Demanufacture still stands up to any metal record out there. Los Angeles’ Fear Factory formed in 1990 and have released a slew of albums, but it was 1995’s Demanufacture which catapulted them into cyber-metal legend status. At a time where Nu-Metal was reigning supreme, Fear Factory not only set the bar with an incredible record with massive production but launched a legion of imitators that fell short off the mark. The record is a massive gargantuan of an album that will never be replicated. We are here to tell you the ten reasons why Demanufacture absolutely kicks maximum ass after twenty years!

  1. I was young hearing this album, maybe 15 or 16, but being a visual artist I “saw” this album and it revolutionized how I created. Back then, there was no ‘cyber metal’, but like you said, this one was the kicker. It was cold and brutal, and Bell was the absolute authority on anything he was preaching. Definitely still a testament to a well-structured concept album. Stoked to see a current legend paying tribute to the greats!

  2. You mention Dino Cazares guitar playing alot, but barely mention Raymond Herrera’ drumming, I mean people still swear to this day, that it sounds like a drum machine, and there’s no way a human is playing that, but it is, and he did.
