Fans who attended the Lamb of God show Tuesday night (Nov. 12) in Vancouver, British Columbia were probably a little surprised to see Fear Factory’s Matt DeVries playing bass for the band. According to reports, DeVries is the temporary replacement for John Campbell, who was recently sidelined by a family emergency.

‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is an iconic video, with Nirvana playing a pep rally that turns into chaos. The song ended up being Nirvana’s biggest hit and propelled the album ‘Nevermind’ to the top of the charts. One thing you may not know, however, is that one of the kids in the video was Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell.
Fear Factory have always been a force to be reckoned with in the world of industrial rock. Like most long-lasting bands, they have faced several obstacles throughout their tenure in the rock world. One obstacle that threatened to be the demise of the band was when it was announced that they would be returning from their break-up in 2002 without founding member and guitarist Dino Cazares. Overcoming that obstacle, though, it didn’t take long for Cazares to return to the lineup with lead singer Burton Bell and release 2010′s ‘Mechanize.’
The Shockwave tour, which was set to kick off on Friday, July 6, featuring Voivod, Fear Factory, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Havok, Last Chance to Reason and the Browning, has been canceled just two days before the launch.
Fear Factory are about to drop their latest cyber metal opus ‘The Industrialist’ on Tuesday, June 5. Vocalist Burton C. Bell recently spoke to Johnny Thrash of 106.3 The Buzz about the fact that the band elected to program the drums, as opposed to using a live skinsman, revealing that the decision expedited the recording process. He also delved deep into the concept behind the album, shedding a little light on exactly who ‘The Industrialist’ is. Strap yourselves in, metal fans, as you are about to enter a ‘Terminator’-like world of sentient automatons, which essentially translates to machines with sensory perception.
Man and machine will collide to form a gnashing, gnawing tangle of cyber metal courtesy of Fear Factory on June 5. The long-running band will release the new album ‘The Industrialist’ on that very date in North America via Candlelight. It’s a 10-song opus with a running time that clocks in at just short of an hour, which gives the band enough time to get in, rattle your brain, force you to mosh and/or headbang and then make its escape.
