Fear Factory - Archetype
Well finally they’re back after a long while with a new album. Fear Factory came with the brand new album “Archetype”. This band doesn’t need any introduction I presume, for those of you who don’t know FF, SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!! When Dino Cazares left in 2002, the future was dark for FF, but his position was quickly filled by Christian Olde Wolbers. Christian was initially a guitarist but was playing the role of the bassist in Fear Factory. I hope former Strapping Young Lad bassist Byron Stroud joined the Fear Factory team for the rest of the future. I the beginning I didn’t know what to expect of this new FF album and was a bit afraid that it would disappoint me, but instead it blasted me out of my car (where I listened it for the first time). This is again a masterpiece made by the hero’s of FF and it is exactly how I had hoped the album would be, just as hard, loud and fast as the rest of the albums. The guitar parts in this album are not so different from the previous albums where Dino played the guitar, and that surprised me. The drums are the typical FF drums, fast and loud. Archetype, this song is one of the great songs that are on this album. In this song you hear the sometimes melodic and the aggressive voice that Burton uses on the album. The drums on this song made (again) a big impression on me. This song sounds really great just like the rest of the songs on the album. There is actually nothing that is negative about this album, although I won’t give it a 100/100 because I never heard an album that is perfect, and if it was perfect the next album would always be less. My opinion of the album is great and I have nothing to ad or have comment about. This album is just another masterpiece just like the other albums of FF and everyone who likes metal should have a copy of this album somewhere near his stereo!!! Line-Up: Burton C.
