Industrial-tinged extreme metal pioneers, Fear Factory, will release their tenth studio album, Aggression Continuum, on June 18 via Nuclear Blast, just in time for the band’s 30th anniversary. Today, the band releases the visualizer video for the second single, “Fuel Injected Suicide Machine”, which can be seen below.
Dino Cazares comments, “I can’t wait for everyone to hear this high octane ripping song, it’s based on a character called the Nightrider from one of my all-time favorite movies ‘Mad Max’. Born with a steering wheel in his hand and lead in his foot, he is the Nightrider, the Fuel Injected Suicide Machine. Remember him when you look at the night sky.”
The band have launched a contest, where fans who pre-save/pre-add the new album have a chance to win Dino Cazares’ Signature Multi Scale 7 String Blood Red Camo Guitar, manufactured by Ormsby Guitars (1st Prize), and Dino’s Machete Pickup, manufactured by Seymour Duncan.

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.
