About Fear Factory
Legendary pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal Fear Factory are proud to announce they will be touring the UK and Ireland in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their highly revered second studio album, Demanufacture. The tour will be a very rare event for fans with Fear Factory playing Demanufacture in its entirety. They will also showcase songs from their highly anticipated new album, Genexus, out 7 August via Nuclear Blast.
Demanufacture, their second album (1995), was a landmark release for Fear Factory and for the Metal genre. It is generally considered as the band’s defining work and a heavy metal classic with its refined production, industrial textures, precise musicianship and greater dimension of sound. It succeeded in giving the band a more futuristic feel than previous works. The concept is based around one man’s struggles against a machine controlled government – with each song marking a chapter in his life, taking huge inspiration from the Terminator film series. Relationship with Producer Rhys Fulber continues to this day, him having worked with Fear Factory on Demanufacture and Genexus plus many works in the interim.
Formed in Los Angeles, California in 1990, Fear Factory changed the world of metal and have become a huge influence on the genre ever since their inception. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash, and industrial on landmark releases like Soul of a New Machine, Demanufacture, and the gold-selling release, Obsolete.
