Last month, newly-reinvigorated industrial metallers Fear Factory released “Disruptor,” the first single from their upcoming new album Aggression Continuum. Now, the band have dropped a second single from that album, titled “Fuel Injected Suicide Machine,” which can be heard below.
Immediately noticeable about “Fuel Injected Suicide Machine” is that it sounds a little more epic and cinematic than “Disruptor.” The song opens with some synth accents that suggest a bigger scene than that which is illustrated via the straightforward murderousness of the track before it. Of course, also noticeable is that the song has recently-departed vocalist Burton C. Bell singing on it, suggesting that despite previously suggested, Aggression Continuum will feature Bell and not a new vocalist on it — the album comes out next month, and the unknown new vocalist that guitarist Dino Cazares has previously mentioned hasn’t shown up yet.
Check out “Fuel Injected Suicide Machine” below:

Whether or not Bell’s vocals will be on every track of the album remains a fraught mystery. Back in September, the singer publicly quit the band, writing in a statement, “It is after considerable, contemplative soul searching that I have come to the realization that I cannot align myself with someone whom I do not trust, nor respect. Therefore, I am announcing to my fans my departure from Fear Factory, to focus all my energy and attention toward the continuing success for Ascension of The Watchers, and all my future endeavors.”
Meanwhile, last year marked the 25th anniversary of Demanufacture, for which Dino sat down with The Pit to discuss the album’s process and legacy. Check out our one-on-one with the guitarist here:
