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.

Fear Factory co-produced the album with Fulber and Greg Reely and recorded it from February 21st to May 10th, 1998, at Mushroom Studios and Armoury Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia. Obsolete came out July 28th, 1998, and driven largely by the popularity of the band's radio-hit cover of Gary Numan's "Cars," the album - which would be reissued as a deluxe Digipak with bonus material in March 1999 - eventually went gold. Decades later, it still stands as Fear Factory's best-selling release.

All things considered, it was evident that fans around the world were looking forward to the follow up to the amazing album they brought forth in 1995. Beginning as most Fear Factory albums do, with dark mechanical noises building up, Obsolete sets a dark and brutal mood to the album with its destructive opening track, Shock. On it, Burton executes his vocals perfectly, shifting from his relentless screams to soaring clean vocals in a flawless manner. Dino and Raymond keep up the fast pace of the song with their great combination, and the song is infectiously catchy and addictive

The album in question was Fear Factory’s 1998 release, Obsolete. I remember staring at the cover of the album, not knowing what to expect, but I was intrigued. I had never heard of the band before that point, so whatever I would hear on this album would have to serve as the focal point of my perception of the band
