Short intro

Obsolete styled BSΩLEe on the album cover is the third studio album by American industrial metal band Fear Factory, released on July 28, 1998. Conceptually, it is a sequel to 1995's Demanufacture. With the success of its fourth single, Cars, a Gary Numan cover that featured Numan himself on vocals, Obsolete would break Fear Factory into the mainstream and remain their highest selling album.

Recording information: Recorded at Mushroom Studios, Vancouver, B. Fear Factory - Obsolete 1998. Obsolete is the third full-length release by electro-metallists Fear Factory. Admirably, they've stayed true to their sound over the years, paying no mind to current musical trends - they're content with their original Ministry-meets-Slayer sound. On their latest produced by ex-Front Line Assembly member Rhys Fulber, the quartet offers more of the same sound, with a bit of experimentation thrown in for good measure, such as the use of violins, cellos, and violas on a few of the tracks.
