Report

Fear Factory Kicks Off Tour in San Antonio

On May Day 2012, Fear Factory ignited the “Noise of the Machine” tour in San Antonio, Texas. Formerly known as The Warehouse, Backstage Live’s industrialized setting seemed ideal for Fear Factory to get its gears churning. Even though “The Industrialist” isn’t due for another month (June 5), the group was “Recharging” its fans batteries for another dose of explosive cyber metal. Shadows Fall, The Browning, The Devastated and Legacy of Disorder served as support.

Having released “Soul of a New Machine” in 1992, Fear Factory has over twenty years of material to consider when creating a set list. Even though the group selected cuts from every full-length album except “Archetype” and “Transgression,” the set seemed a half-hour short. I’m not that guy who comes out to concerts to watch only the headlining band; however, the night’s billing of seven bands (two local and five touring) seemed to have stolen some of Fear Factory and Shadows Fall’s time in the limelight. Thanks to the gentleman who constantly photo bombed me with his camcorder, you can see video of four of the touring bands. More...

The Devastated Announces New Album Release

Southern California's own The Devastated sees its Century Media debut release "Devil's Messenger" out on February 14th, 2012. The brainchild of former Impending Doom and Oblige members, The Devastated already has two singles available: title-track "Devil's Messenger" and "Roof Top Drop."

Produced by the band itself, Chris Eck and co-production/mix by Daniel Castleman (AS I LAY DYING) the music was not written with the intent of impressing anyone except the band members themselves.

"Let's write the heaviest, grooviest and ugliest songs we possibly can, and bring something fresh to this extremely watered down scene. If people 'get it' awesome... if not, fuck em."
