FEAR FACTORY: “Genexus” Artwork and Track Listing Revealed

May 27th, 2015
by EvilG


The pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal, FEAR FACTORY, will release their 9th studio album and Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, entitled Genexus, on August 7th worldwide. Genexus was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell and 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).

“The word genexus is a hybrid of two words; genesis and nexus,” explains vocalist Burton C. Bell. “This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a ‘mechanical’ state of being.  Ray Kurzweil predicts that the singularity will occur around 2045. Genexus is the term for that next evolutionary process. Where humans are machines, machines are human, and the differences are oblivious to the naked eye.


“This 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.”

All members pouring their heart and soul into the group’s first album of original material since 2009. ELEFANTE was produced by Matt Thorne (Trapt/Disturbed), Marq Torien and engineered by Ryan Greene (Alice Cooper/Lita Ford/Cheap Trick/Usher). The great Anthony Focx (Miley Cyrus/Aerosmith/Santana/Buckcherry) mastered this new work of art. “Working with the Bulletboys was an amazing experience,” explains Ryan Greene. “Most singers, from back in the 80’s, were pretty good but I will tell you Marq knocked it out of the park on this record.

The new album will hit stores worldwide on August 28, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Records. The Ride Majestic was recorded by David Castillo at Studio Gröndal, and was produced and mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street. The cover art was illustrated by Róbert Borbás (Grinddesign / www.theartofgrinddesign.com).


SOILWORK vocalist Björn Speed Strid comments, “We just put the final touches on our new album, The Ride Majestic, and all we can say is that it’s going to be massive. It definitely picks up where we left off with The Living Infinite, but slightly darker, atmospheric and almost anthemic, with some really interesting twists and turns. Can’t wait to play this epic beast live!  Await The Ride Majestic ladies n’ gents!”


In celebration of The Ride Majestic’s impending release, SOILWORK have released a live video of their hit song “Let This River Flow” featuring Nightwish/Revamp singer Floor Jansen, which comes off SOILWORK’s most recent DVD/Blu Ray output, Live In The Heart Of Helsinki!

The reigning kings of technical, historically-themed brutality, NILE, are currently in the studio wrapping up the mix of their upcoming album What Should Not Be Unearthed.

Produced by NILE and mixed by Neil Kernon. The album will be released late summer via Nuclear Blast Records.


Mastermind Karl Sanders states:

“All of us in NILE are happy to announce our newest album What Should Not Be Unearthed. It’s our 8th official album, and this time we believe we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. The focus this time around is on brutally heavy metal riffing and songwriting; kind of like of an Annihilation Of The Wicked approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. Our last record, At The Gates Of Sethu, was super surgically clean and very “musicianship oriented” whereas the new disc is a polar opposite; Unearthed is aimed straight at utter metal heaviness and memorable songwriting. Although Unearthed is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people have come to expect from NILEover the years, it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around. These songs will be a blast to play live, and we are stoked at the opportunity to bring these songs to metal fans everywhere. See you on tour!”

From British Columbia Canada comes Leah, a singer that released her second album KINGS AND QUEENS early this year. Her music is best described as symphonic metal influenced by world, Celtic, and middle eastern music. A few of the topics we handled include: the new album, her new label, the guest musicians (Tim Somers, Sander Zoer and Barend Courbois), her background, and why she hasn’t toured. Leah has gained a big fanbase with huge internet support from fans and I’m sure that the fans wants to see her live. Leah’s label has also re-released her debut album OF EARTH AND ANGELS. Enjoy.
