Fear Factory have written a chapter of heavy metal history by developing an inimitable, cutting-edge, death metal-meets-industrial sound. The band’s legacy lives on to this day. Rarely can a musical artist claim to be a true innovator, a creator of their own genre, a revolutionary amongst a sea of sameness. Formed in Los Angeles in 1990, Fear Factory had set a new standard in extreme music, a standard they would continue to bear to this very day. In the early ‘90s, many years before Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall started combining strangled growls with catchy vocal melodies, and Static-X and Rammstein began blended pounding staccato riffs and jackhammer beats with electronic samples, Los Angeles future-thinkers Fear Factory were reinventing both death metal and industrial rock with an arsenal of sonic styles. Fear Factory is on the front-burner again, as exciting as they were in the early ‘90s. Moreover, the band’s approaching it with a new level of maturity and professionalism.
