I have heard of FLA thanks to the "Remanufacture" album (a remix album of Fear Factory's best seller "Demanufacture"), where artists such as Junkie XL and mostly Rhys Fulber worked on.
On "Hard Wired" it's 100% industrial with elements of EBM (a style used by groups such as KMFDM and Pitchshifter). The whole CD takes you in a trip where Leeb's deep voice and various mechanical noises rules.
"Infra Red Combat" is a hell of an outro. Listen to it while driving at night. Such a nice experience.

Easily one of FLA's best, and most overlooked releases. The music is a mix of the EBM seen on Tactical Neural Implant, and the Industrial seen on Millenium (a lot fewer guitars though). Though not all of the songs are something to cream over, some of the band's best songs can be found on this album. Check this one out - you won't be disappointed. I guarantee it.
