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.
FEAR FACTORY’s latest album, The Industrialist, debuted at position No. 38 on the American Billboard Top 200 chart in 2012. The band’s 2010 release, Mechanize, debuted at No. 72 on the American Billboard Top 200.
