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. Again fully operational, Fear Factory began once again manufacturing records, releasing Mechanize in 2010, followed by the 2012 concept album The Industrialist. In late 2014, the band announced that they had signed with Nuclear Blast and would be releasing their ninth studio album, Genexus, later that year. Tony Campos (formerly of Static-X) replaced Stroud on bass, and Malignancy's Mike Heller took over the drum stool. The album, produced by longtime collaborator Rhys Fulber, dropped in August 2015. ~ Steve Huey

Linchpin was the first song I ever heard from them. They were one of my main metal influences and they allowed me to listen and enjoy all types of different metal. They are one of the best and will always be one of the greatest of all time. \m/ (*-- *) \m/

I grew up on Fear Factory. I can still remember the first time I heard Scapegoat, I was hooked, then Demanufactur e . . . . I knew back then that album was forever going to be in my top ten albums of all time! And they still haven't let me down with one album. True metal pioneers. Listen to Replica if you haven't! And for those that enjoy their softer ambient stuff Burton C. Bell did a side project called Ascension of the Watchers you should listen to. It's definitely not for everyone though.

Finding their nitch. Or most always say sold out. I would like as a fan myself to challenge any of you to let me comment on your songs. Oh that's right you listen to others art for free and take the time out of busy life to comment. I thank you because every comment sales more music for me to enjoy.

Hate to inform the world about the drum machine. But double check the record books on the fastest drummers. I will say in some albums and songs drum triggers were used I believe for timing but again what sets a drum trigger. A DRUMMER.
Lack of knowledge and biased thoughts are welcome always on the world of Fear Factory. We expect it and love to here it so we adjust and modify each album song. Based on the true fans. Ps Soul of a New Machine was prefect example have some of our favorite bands f

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....
