    This makes me question your objectivity. I’m not a Gene fanboy, but his drumming made Mechanize.

    What im saying is had people not known it was Gene or if it wasnt him all together but with the same drums nobody would be saying that! Only because its "Gene Hoglan" the drums automatically are phenomenal & "make the album"! I believe i read somewhere where they time aligned his drums anyway!

    Not true - I had no idea who Gene was before Mechanize, and had to look into it because the drums were so intense!

    I hear you, but I honestly don’t know who to believe anymore. Either way, we’ll always have the classics.

    I had no idea that gene was even attached to the album when I started listening to it. Just thought the drums were cool.

    Every drummer in the world gets quantised these days. It's not about how tight the playing is, its about the beats sounding fresh, while remaining simple and mechanical, i.e. the Fear Factory sound.

    He couldn't have chosen a worse company haha.

    Amusingly, it looks like it's a precision drive clone without the gate

    Yep, when he teased the new pedal on his twitter (the blank box) I thought it was gonna be a JHS or something. Then I saw the graphic he teased a couple days later, which made me realize it's definitely gonna be a ProTone and I was like

    What's up with all the protone hate? I know nothing about them other than bulb had a pedal with them ages back.

    Terrible QC. Decals were shitty and would tear off over nothing. Apparently bad CS as well.

    yeah not just cosmetic stuff either. Poorly wired and malfunctioning pedals, just shoddy building overall.

    Yeah that's what I meant. Really, really horrible gut shots.

    Also a slight snippet of a new song. Sounds like a continuation of Genexus.

    At one point, Loomis, Merrow and Bulb all had signature pedals. Multiple examples of all 3 being of garbage quality.
