FROM THE US – FEAR FACTORY JOIN THE SWEDEN ROCK LINE UP
Fear Factory is one of the most influential metal bands of the 90s. Their hybrid of death metal and industrial metal was unprecedented and influenced the likes of Machine Head, Strapping Young Lad and Pain. Following a suite of classic albums like ”Soul of a new machine” (1992), ”Demanufacture” (1995) and ”Obsolete” (1998), rifts appeared in Fear Factory. Guitarist Dino Cazares jumped ship in 2002 and the following releases divided the band’s fanbase.
However, in 2009 it was revealed that Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C Bell had reconciled and formed a new incarnation of Fear Factory, completed by bassist Byron Stroud and drum legend Gene Hoglan (ex-Dark Angel, Death, Strapping Young Lad, Testament et al). The impending album ”The industrialist” supposedly is everything a Fear Factory-fan could want. And now, as an added bonus, the fans have the band’s Sweden Rock Festival-debut to look forward to.
