★★☆☆ Seeing as there’s a new Terminator movie in the theaters, it must be time for a new Fear Factory album. So what if there’s not a lot of evolution to the band’s sound; they got that out of the way with “Demanufacture.” And there are a few moments on here that inject new energy into the proceedings. But for every track like “Anodized” that brings something new, there’s a song like the title track that sounds exactly like a 20-year-old B-side. Still, there’s good stuff on here. And, odd as it’s going to sound for Fear Factory, the decision to bring back “live” drumming was a good one.
