Fear Factory

Fear Factory were one of the first bands to fuse the loud, crushing intensity of death metal with the cold harshness of industrial electronics and samples, producing a more varied sonic palette with which to express their bleak, pessimistic view of modern, technology-driven society. The group was formed in Los Angeles in 1990 by vocalist Burton C. Bell (formerly of Hate Face), percussionist Raymond Herrera, and guitarist and ex-Douche Lord Dino Cazares. Following their contribution of two tracks to the L.A. Death Metal compilation, Fear Factory signed to Roadrunner Records and released their debut album, Soul of a New Machine, in 1992, which featured new bass player Andrew Shives, added to allow Cazares to play guitar on tour. The following year's Fear Is the Mind Killer EP showed Fear Factory's willingness to experiment with their music and broaden its scope by placing tracks from their debut in the hands of remixers Rhys Fulber and Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly; the EP also marked the debut of keyboardist Reynor Diego, who along with Fulber joined the band as a touring keyboardist. Shives was fired in 1994 and replaced by Christian Olde Wolbers.

In 1995, Fear Factory released their second full-length album of new material, Demanufacture; it was followed two years later by another remix project, Remanufacture (Cloning Technology), which this time featured contributions from a number of different remixers, including many techno-oriented artists, as well as more input from Fear Factory themselves. Steve Tushar replaced Diego in 1996. The members of the band have performed in a number of side projects, the most notable of which is Cazares' and Herrera's Brujeria; others include G/Z/R (Bell) and Nailbomb (Cazares). Fear Factory reconvened in 1998 for Obsolete, a record that found the band's well-established style fitting seamlessly into the growing alternative metal boom. As such, it became the band's biggest hit yet, hitting the Top 100 on the album charts. Fear Factory's profile was further boosted by appearances on several film soundtracks and on the 1999 Ozzfest tour. Their next album, 2001's Digimortal, entered the charts in the Top 40, but by the next year vocalist Bell decided to leave the band. Cazares was the one who eventually left the band, however, while Wolbers moved to guitar and Byron Stroud (Strapping Young Lad) was hired for the bass spot.

Amidst the lineup changes, Roadrunner dropped the band and, in 2002, issued their original 1991 recordings on the compilation Concrete. Fear Factory moved to Liquid 8 for 2004's Archetype. The equally merciless Transgression followed in August 2005. Disappointed with Transgression and feeling that they had been pressured into rushing the album out, Fear Factory went on hiatus while the bandmembers pursued other projects. Eventually, Bell and Cazares reconciled their friendship, and in 2009 the pair re-formed Fear Factory with Byron Stroud on bass and Gene Hoglan (who also played with Devin Townsend, Death, and Dethklok, among others) on drums, much to the surprise of Herrera and Wolbers. Now fully operational, Fear Factory began once again manufacturing records, releasing Mechanize in 2010, followed by the concept album The Industrialist in 2012. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Fing love these guys its been 17 years since the first time I heard these guys. Still just as good now as back in the day
Dude....dema n u f a c t u r e ? ? So worth the listen
Obsolete is so good. Never really got into anything else they did but that album is a 10/10.
bricekelsch
Would be interesring to see these guys tour with kmfdm
I never knew they were a death metal band.
one of my top 5...
SHOCK!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
Best metal band of all time. They're heavy as hell, melodic, and great people in real life.
Fear factory is real metal these guys look like normal ppl. On stage but they play like living monsters, My fan song would be, "Shock"!!
cristianmarc o 2 0 1 2
The older i get, the more i appreciate this band.
I reckon obsolete had to be one of the most creative writing processes from start to finish I've seen /heard... How it's basically a crazy a** movie script of man vs machine
and that it's based around the character EdgeCrusher and his haggard a** emotions from being half human half machine....
Metal is too cool far awards
I love c burton bell. I've listen them since round the time obsolete came out!!
Grammy's? Are you serious dude? Metal music wasn't meant to be listened by pop a** douchebags that never got the real meaning of heavy metal. Remember the Metallica /Jethro Tull incident? Those moronic a**holes ; always casted metal aside f**k the Grammy's!
these guys are bad a**
badass
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
god help me pour this gas on me!!! I need to drown in flames to be free!!!! f**k yea!
Love to see Rhys Fulber with writing credit on Recharger. Want to see these guys again.
Self Bias resistor is a badass song Fear Factory rules!
This musick is what I grew up on and kills the gay skiny jean f*g kid musick that's out now
Demanufactur e is one of my top 5 favorite albums for sure. It is furious from start to finish.
i've got no more goddamn regrets
i've got no more goddamn respect
:D
Having Gene Hoglan drum certainly helps make an album better...

I personally thought Mechanize should have been nominated for a Grammy - there isn't one song on there I don't like - not like with their other albums - Fear Campaign gives me chills everytime I hear the mosh-pit crazy opening riff.
sandman22r
they don't make music like this anymore
Love it
ddm3671
ff is the bomb.
'Obsolete' that is.
My favorite Fear Factory album I've heard so far.

Drums
Demanufactur e and Obsolete are top shelf in the Fear Factory scene as far as their albums go. I miss those days when their music was ever so touching and yet so true to its brutality.
Demanufactur e is still the best, they will never top that masterpiece!
wcahlstadt23
Pandora, we need Soul of a New Machine on here, man!
Ff for life
I have fallen in love with Godeater off of The Industrialis t . Epic!
Dino is a guy you can find in almost any Los Angeles metal show and walking the Glendale Galleria. FF is always in my playlists.
One of my fav cd by them.
Christplotat i o n ! 'Nuff said
matt76399
The Industrialis t is an epic album. Buy it. now.
Saw them friday night in Indiana. Really good show. Wish they'd have played more from Demanufactur e tho.
i agree, but give the nod to obsolete and demanufactur e as two of the best.
jmartorana6
Have loved them ever since the early 90's and they only get better with age. Every album is a masterpiece in my opinion. Long live FF!
Super tight band. They are nasty and I love it.
Self Bias Resistor... for all those who don't know. suffer b@st@RD
One of the best industrial metal bands ever known...Keep kicking a** fear factory.
ryanwiehl
One of the most underrated bands from the 90's and still kicking a** today. Can't wait for their new one to drop this year.
While Demanufactur e IS unbelievable , Mechanize kicks some serious, a**, and it's great to hear that old school style that I fell in love with, years ago.
They will never top Demanufactur e . Still a badass album after all these years!
INSANLY tight band!!!!
