Track Review: Fear Factory “Powershifter” Mechanize 
Update: Read the Mechanize full album review here
The new single “Powershifter” from Fear Factory is the most devastating and brutal tune in metal at the moment. The long awaited return of Dino Cazares on the guitars combined with Gene Hoglan’s drums most likely account for the powerfully aggressive rhythmic patterns that leaves the listener with facial blisters and a battered-in skull. Burton C. Bell continues to be one of metals greatest front men, alternating between his signature death grunts and trademark melodies. The frenetic breakdown at 2:10 just rips and tears through flesh with pure ferocity. The new album Mechanize is due out February 9, 2010 on Candlelight Records and is promising to be the band’s best work since Obsolete and possibly Demanufacture, if “Powershifter” truly is an accurate representation of the new material –Meds
