Fear Factory is a band that holds a special place around these parts — after all, not only is this writer a 30-year fan, but I also had the opportunity to work with the band nine years ago when I was tapped to create the album trailer for The Industrialist. Now, the band is back with their first new music in five years.
Aggression Continuum will be released on June 18 via Nuclear Blast Records. The first single, “Disruptor,” can be heard below. An age-restricted video is available now but must be viewed directly on YouTube.
“This record is one of my proudest achievements and I’m really excited for it to finally be released”, says Dino Cazares, founder and guitarist, Fear Factory. “There were a lot of personal struggles, sacrifices, and legal issues involved with this record which almost didn’t see the light of day, but through passion, determination, lots of hard work and not giving up the fight, it’s finally ready for the world to hear. I felt that I needed to prove myself once again as I always try and make each record better than the last. Listen, and understand! This album is pissed! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are hooked. You must fight to survive in the Aggression Continuum.”
