"Plastic Planet" is side project of
Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler (Terence Michael Joseph Butler) with Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory on vocals. Of course Geezer was Sabbath's bassist, but he was also so much more. He also wrote many songs and authored a lot of their lyrics. However, the purpose of a side project is usually to do something completely different from the sound of your main band. That is exactly what Geezer did here. "Plastic Planet" is angry, modern metal that crosses Machine Head with Fight and, of course, a whole lot of the industrial metal of Fear Factory. This album is ultra-heavy and very 90's sounding. In many respects, this album sounds more like a Burton C. Bell project than it does a solo outing from Geezer. As such, it's never really tripped my trigger. I am quite glad that Geezer ended up back up with Black Sabbath.
