Fear Factory

Fear Factory was formed under the name Ulceration in 1989 in Los Angeles, California by guitarist Dino Cazares and drummer Raymond Herrera. "Ulceration" wasn't picked for any real reason other than that Burton C. Bell and/or other members thought it would "just be a cool name" for the band. They then renamed to Fear Factory in 1990.

Fear Factory was formed under the name Ulceration in 1989 in Los Angeles, California by guitarist Dino Cazares and drummer Raymond Herrera. "Ulceration" wasn't picked for any real reason other than that Burton C. Bell and/or other members thought it would "just be a cool name" for the band. They then renamed to Fear Factory in 1990. Characterised by a mix of thrash metal (though they sound more in the vein of groove metal) guitar riffs, roaring vocals that make way for melodic singing, pulse driven drum beats, and powerful basslines, Fear Factory have been making waves in both the American death metal and industrial metal scenes since their debut album, Soul of a New Machine (1992). The album was not successful in the mainstream. Undeterred, the band embarked on extensive touring across the U.S with Biohazard and Sick Of It All and over Europe with Brutal Truth. It is important to note that only "Soul of a New Machine" can accurately be classified as death metal, subsequent albums saw lead singer Burton C. Bell change his style, as well as a marked improvement in the band's production in general. « hide
