The show for Friday, Nov 17th, was slated for 8 pm and based on previous experience at the Palladium in Worcester, MA I figured I'd show up around 8.30. Alas, when I got in Hypocrisy were just starting their set, which meant I had missed Decapitated. The place was already quite full and the floor was almost jam- packed. When I first heard of this tour's lineup, I wasn't sure about the crossing point between the fans and how well they'd mix together but luckily the bands had a good number of devoted fans and one could easily mistake who the headliner is based on the crowd's cheering.

Fear Factory has mapped out dates for a late-year traveling thrash caravan, with fellow metalists Suffocation, Hypocrisy, and Decapitated along for the ride.
The band will kick things off Thursday (10/26) near Sacramento, CA, with 37 stops around the continent planned through mid-December for the outing, which the group has dubbed the Machines at War tour.
"I'm really excited about doing a heavy tour like this," the band's drummer, Raymond Herrera, said in a press release. "A brutal line-up full of metal pioneers has been a long time coming. I guarantee a lot of our fans will agree. Plus you'll be certain to hear some Fear Factory songs that have not been played live in quite some time."
"Transgression," the band's eighth studio effort, and second for Liquid Eight Records, was released in August 2005. "The Best of Fear Factory," hit stores this September.
Fear Factory has toured extensively the last two years supporting "Transgression" and 2004's "Archetype," and spent large parts of 2005 supporting Megadeth on its Gigantour, along with Dream Theater, Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore.
The band is currently collaborating with photographer Omer Cordell on a photo book documenting last year's tour and its Gigantour appearances.
