FEAR FACTORY records are cinematic in scope; sonic landscapes, echoing the dystopian post-apocalyptic futures found in classic sci-fi literature and films, from Ray Bradbury to Blade Runner. Aggression Continuum, the tenth studio album, is the culmination of three decades of unforgettable songs, performances, and forward-thinking storytelling concepts, while simultaneously rebooting FEAR FACTORY onto a brilliant and excitingly unpredictable new path. Like the liquid metal T-1000 in the Terminator franchise or the Academy-Award winning reboot of Mad Max, Aggression Continuum is a turning point where what “was” transforms into what will be. It’s FEAR FACTORY’s own Fury Road.
Bell moved on from FEAR FACTORY, citing his desire to focus on more melodic projects and frustration with all of the various members, past and present, as his reasons for his final exit. Should Aggression Continuum prove to be his true last performance as the frontman of FEAR FACTORY, it’s a more than worthy farewell, demonstrated by the unstoppably definitive and distinctive attack of songs like “Recode,” “Disruptor,” and “Purity.”
