* {{Determinator}}: ''H-K (Hunter-Killer),'' ''Edgecrusher,'' ''Smasher/Devourer,'' ''Archetype.'' ''H-K'' gets bonus points for not only taking its title from [[TheTerminator De Terminator]], but using samples of Kyle Reese's dialogue.

* CarefulWithThatAxe: A piercing growl is heard after the long, extremely quiet (yet gloomy) intro of "Fear Campaign". Way to scare us all, Burton.
* ClusterFBomb: Not so much in the music itself, but Burton is ''very'' sweary on-stage between songs.
* ConceptAlbum - ''Soul of A New Machine'', ''Demanufacture'', ''Obsolete'', and ''Digimortal'' all tell a continuous story.
** Although ''The Industrialist'' is the band's first concept album since ''Digimortal'', it is not part of the Fear Factory-verse, forming an unconnected story.
* DeathMetal - ''Soul of a New Machine'' and ''Concrete''. There are also trace elements of death metal in the band's other material.
* GenreBusting - Honestly, try figuring out what kind of metal they really are.
* GenreShift - Industrial death metal to industrial groove metal. They also had nu metal influence on ''Digimortal''.

* HeavyMithril - Most of the band's lyrics focus on science fiction
* IndustrialMetal - Their main genre. They have even worked with Rhys Fulber of Music/FrontLineAssembly on a few albums.
* MetalScream: Types 1, 2 and 4. Type 2 mostly only occurred on ''Soul of a New Machine'' and ''Concrete'', and virtually all subsequent works saw Burton moving between Type 1 and 4.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness - ''Soul of a New Machine'' and ''Concrete'' are 10; most of their other material is 8, occasionally bordering on 9.
** Some songs drop it as low as 6 or 7 (''Descent'', ''Resurrection'' and ''Cars''). They are in the minority.
*** Even more unusual is ''Timelessness'', which is only about a 2!

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Kind of like Bauhaus in that the sound they created is common now but was downright out of left field when they started. Death metal, industrial metal, grindcore, noise, EBM, rap and synthpop aren't exactly things you'd expect to hear combined, but that's pretty much exactly what Fear Factory did. They even incorporate elements of NuMetal.
* PissTakeRap / RapMetal - "Back the Fuck Up" from ''Digimortal''. It sure wasn't expected. Half of the band also contributed to Cypress Hill's ''Skull & Bones''.
* {{Remaster}}: ''Soul of a New Machine'' was remastered and re-released in a 2005 digipak that combined it with the also remastered E.P ''Fear Is The Mindkiller.''
* {{Sampling}} - Hard to notice, but most of their earlier songs contained random samples, whether they were quotes or sound effects. Some of the sounds they sampled were from ''Film/ApocalypseNow'', ''Film/BladeRunner'', and the ''Film/DemolitionMan'' arcade game.

Fear Factory is an American metal band. Formed in 1989, they are well-known for their signature style, which combines death metal, groove metal, thrash metal and industrial metal. They had a large impact on the metal (and "metalium", if you're picky) scene from the mid-90s and onwards, with Machine Head, Chimaira, Music/DevinTownsend, Music/{{Disturbed}} and Mnemic all citing them as an influence.

They disbanded in 2002 due to internal disputes, but reformed later that same year without guitarist Dino Cazares, a founding member. They disbanded again in 2006, only to reform ''again'' in 2009 with a new lineup, including the returning Dino Cazares and drummer [[Music/{{Death}} Gene]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}} Hog]][[Music/StrappingYoungLad lan]].

* ReligionRantSong: ''Big God/Raped Souls,'' (("Liar! Big God, no God, BURN!")) and ''Desecrate'' from ''Soul of a New Machine'' with ''Act of God'' on ''Archetype'' give examples of [[GodIsEvil Type 1]]. ''Demanufacture's'' ''Pisschrist'' is more of a [[ReligionIsWrong Type 2]], though in the context of the album, it also talks either about the anti-machine resistance, or the machine leadership. Although you may not realize it, the ''Digimortal'' bonus track ''Dead Man Walking'' is a Type 2. Mechanize Christploitation is a [[ScamReligion type 3]] talking about how religion is now explored and sold.
