Pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal FEAR FACTORY have premiered a new track online.
‘Dielectric’ is taken from the band’s much anticipated metallic masterpiece, »Genexus« and can be heard here:
The album’s title »Genexus« is a hybrid of two words: GENESIS and NEXUS. This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a ‘mechanical’ state of being.
“The album is a record of thought patterns, psychology and struggles of the Genexus generation. The cognitive machine has arrived and it wants autonomy from the industry that created it.
This machine struggles, like every other human has throughout the course of history. This is the story of every one of us”, explains front man Burton C. Bell. Whereas the first two tracks on
»Genexus« deal with themes of new machinery taking over the old and the enhancement of technology in the process, Dielectric deals with this new machinery learning about it’s capabilities
and the advantages. Burton describes this transition: “After it’s enhancement the model learns that it’s power is protected in many ways. It has the ability to withstand enormous amounts of
energy flowing through it’s form and has the ability to conduct the energy with it’s own determination. It cannot be deterred by hate or violence. The model will withstand all attacks and remain intact.”
»Genexus« was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell & guitarist Dino Cazares and co-produced by long-time collaborator Rhys Fulber. The album was mixed by famed British producer and engineer,
Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD). Artwork was once again handled by artist Anthony Clarkson. Drums on »Genexus« were performed by Mike Heller (MALIGNANCY).
