Fear Factory: Archetype

Their latest album. I'm not sure when it was released. Pretty recently I think. It came with a DVD that was total crap. It only had 1 video, and the rest was just boring interviews with the band. I was hoping for some shots of them in the studio at least!


The album is damn good. Just as good as Demanufacture IMO, if not a smidgen better. The singer's voice has definitely improved a lot. Archetype has the usual Fear Factory style - universe destroying grooves and riffs combined with catchy melodies. Perhaps even more melody than usual. Having not listened to any of their stuff since Demanufacture I don't know what "usual" is for them anymore.

As with most good albums in this genre, it may take a few listens before you get into it, but believe me it's well worth it. I've been listening non-stop for the last week and I keep wanting more.

Buy it!

I don't have time to do the full review, but I thought I'd get at least a comment or two...aren't you into this kind of music Funko?

Yes, I have. I am more interested in getting a copy of it (as I am unemployed you see, and cannot afford to fund my FF habit!)

Looking forward to hearing it at any rate.
