Why Burton C. Bell Left Fear Factory

Former Fear Factory frontman Burton C. Bell has spoken about his decision to quit the band, leading to their decision to split up. Here’s his full statement:

“On Saturday March 2, 2002, I met with all the members of Fear Factory. At that meeting, I announced my personal feelings about the present situation within the band. I have been unhappy for quite sometime both interpersonally, and business wise, and that has rendered me creatively restrained. After extensive deliberation within my self, I decided that the best possible answer I was comfortable with was to leave the band.

“This is not a whimsical advance into the unknown, it is something that I have been thinking about for quite sometime. I have kept my feelings and realizations to myself until it was evident that it was a relationship that was unproductive to me as an artist. This decision was a sudden development to most everyone to whom I am familiar with.

“We have experienced many highs, and just as many lows in the span of 12 years, and I do not regret a single moment. I have searched within me, every possible avenue of execution in making this decision and I feel that for me, and my growth as an artist, moving forward is the best possible solution. I would like to extend my wishes to the guys the best of luck in their future endeavours. I will miss the relationship I had with the fans and I want to thank them for their support through all the years.”
