"There is a main character who is called "The Industrialist"" states singer Burton C. Bell, referring to the character at the heart of songs like "God Eater" or "Virus of Faith".
“He’s a machine that has become self-aware and becomes a catalyst for change. The album has the loose concept of a murder plot, with the realization that the automaton is becoming more human each day. The last track on the album "Human Augmentation" is moment where machine becomes human and realizes its own humanity. That’s a thought that’s very key to the Fear Factory universe."
