After a brutal legal battle, Fear Factory is finally set to release their first album in five years, Aggression Continuum, which will arrive June 18th via Nuclear Blast just in time for the band’s 30th anniversary. Aggression Continuum is also the final to feature Burton C. Bell, who announced his exit last September. The band is currently on the hunt for a new singer.
Focusing on the positive, the band shared “Disruptor”, the first single off Aggression Continuum, which is accompanied by the following action-packed and ultra-violent dystopian music video directed by Riivata Visuals.
“This record is one of my proudest achievements and I’m really excited for it to finally be released,” said Dino Cazares in a statement. “There were a lot of personal struggles, sacrifices, and legal issues involved with this record which almost didn’t see the light of day, but through passion determination, lots of hard work and not giving up the fight, it’s finally ready for the world to hear. I felt that I needed to prove myself once again as I always try and make each record better than the last. Listen, and understand! This album is pissed! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are hooked. You must fight to survive in the Aggression Continuum.”
Aggression Continuumwill be available in the following formats:
Aggression Continuumfeatures guitarist, songwriter, and co-founder Dino Cazares; drummer Mike Heller; and former vocalist, lyricist, and co-founder Burton C. Bell. It was produced and engineered by Damien Rainaud (DRAGONFORCE, ONCE HUMAN), with keyboards by Igor Khoroshev (ex-YES), and programming on two songs from longtime collaborator Rhys Fulber (FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY). Aggression Continuum was mixed by A-list rock and metal producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TRIVIUM), who also mixed the album’s critically-acclaimed predecessor, Genexus. The artwork for the album was created by Francesco Artusato.
