  • Yeah you would think that those related bands would be at the top of the list. FF however has a wide range of listeners so I'm not surprised. And nice that the shout boxes are almost fully restored, wish hyperlinks would work though.
  • \m/
  • RELATED bands and side projects, that is.
  • True, similar artists are also based on what other bands listeners scrobble. I always felt that section should focus a bit more on actual similarities, even though, they're not too far off most of the time. I'm surprised Arkaea and Divine Hersey aren't at the top, since rated bands and side projects usually take the top spots in similar artists sections.
  • Yeah, but I guess there are fans of both CC and FF.
  • I really do wish Coal Chamber would get out of the similar artists section. Strapping Young Lad or Sybreed would be more fitting.
  • no FF album i don't like. slays all of those last fm recommended similar artists by far! MOSH!!!
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvSJQwnmJVM never forget
  • I have to agree with you on Gene Hoglan. He's one of my favorite drummers, but I never thought of him as a highlight of Mechanize. Him and Raymond Herrera have similar drumming styles, so it's not like there was anything that stuck out compared to previous Fear Factory albums drumming wise.
  • Well, if one's major requirement for an FF album is to have Gene Hoglan play on it, then I can see why Mechanize is so appreciated. Don't get me wrong, he's a beast and I adore his work in SYL, but he's a nonfactor for me when it comes to FF. Moreover, Dino after having created Divine Heresy post Digimortal, the likelihood for said material to influence his work in FF during his return was quite high which is really irritating and palpable on Mechanize. From the production, the guitars which are very upfront in the mix, their searing DH like tone, some riffs (Fear Campaing's riff after the intro, Christploitation's chaotic middle part) and the overall dryness in terms of electronics leave quite a conflicted impression on me.
