Fear Factory - Digimortal (2001) Retail CD
When Fear Factory released "Digimortal" in 2001 many fans went running for the hills claiming that Fear Factory had "gone Nu-Metal" and abandoned their sound. This is not entirely untrue as Fear Factory definitely have a more commercialised, produced sound on this particular album, but Fear Factory have never released such a tight, structured album ever before. However that was possibly a part of the appeal of earlier offerings, but nevertheless, "Digimortal" is still a valid and entertaining Metal offering and marks the end of a journey of a band member Dino Cazares. It is just another chaptermore… in the evolution of the band known as Fear Factory...
All that said, their are a few songs that sound like classic Fear Factory. "Acres of Skin," "Byte Block," and "Hurt Conveyor," could just as easily have been on "Demanufacture." However songs like "Linchpin," "Damaged," and "Dead Man Walking," have heavy Nu-Metal sounds, but are all solid, tight, excellent songs. Bell's vocals come through very clearly in this album, but that may be due to the guitar sound being "dumbed down" a little bit. The instruments are definitely not quite as jarring and pounding as previous releases, but it definitely allows you to hear Bell alot more clearly and fully appreciate his vocal range and talent.
The reason I only gave this album 4 stars is because it doesn't come close to "Demanufacture," and isn't really like classic Fear Factory, but it has a sound that grabs and holds you right to the very end. Sometimes a band needs to change its sound in order to grow as a hold, and luckily for Fear Factory, "Digimortal," is still a fantastic offering in its own right.
If you like your Metal a little more produced and not too heavy, then Fear Factory's "Digimortal" is a great purchase. However, if you like your metal hard, underproduced and heavy, may I suggest earlier albums like "Soul Of A New Machine," and "Demanufacture." If you're a Fear Factory fan then you'll buy this album because it's just as valid and valuable as all other Fear Factory albums. So go on, get "Digimortal," it'll only hurt your pocket and your ears if you don't like it! :)
