* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Archetype'' was intended to be this, going back to the classic sound of ''Demanufacture'' and ''Obsolete''. Albums from ''Mechanize'' onward seem to have done a better job at doing this.


* CoveredUp - While not completely overshadowing the original, their cover of Gary Numan's "Cars" is usually the one that appears most in commercials and other media. Hell, it fittingly appeared in two racing games: VideoGame/TestDrive 6 and the American release of ''VideoGame/GranTurismo 2''! Perhaps subverted, considering Gary Numan does the vocals on the cover, but still. They've pretty much completely covered up "Dog Day Sunrise" (originally by Head of David) and "0~0" (originally by ''Wiseblood''), though.
* CreatorBacklash- The band (and their fans) have shown disdain for their 2005 album ''Transgression'', calling it 'rushed' and 'forced' due to heavy ExecutiveMeddling. Fans are mixed about it due to the poor production and rather mellow second half; they were especially critical that they included a cover of a Music/{{U2}} song on it. Guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers even had to walk out of the studio during recording multiple times because he was not happy with the way his guitar playing sounded. Vocalist Burton C. Bell, however, likes the album.

* MisattributedSong - They never did a cover of Kiss' "God of Thunder", that was by Death.
* NightmareFuel - The song 'Slave Labor' is about self-immolation, which means ''burning yourself alive''.

* [[MeanCharacterNiceActor Mean Character,]] '''[[MeanCharacterNiceActor Nice Actor]]''': Burton and Dino, at the very least, are ''incredibly'' pleasant people given the sound of their music and the insanely dark tone of their lyrics, and make a point of interacting with fans at basically any opportunity when live.
