You know how some people leave their Christmas shopping until the last minute and run around in a mad panic trying to get everything sorted? That’s us that is, but instead of Xmas shopping, we’re doing it with a load of photos Gary Wolstenholme sent us yesterday of Devin Townsend and Fear Factory at the HMV Ritz in Manchester earlier this month.

Download Festival 2012: Fear Factory @ Main Stage – Friday, 08 June 2012

Fear Factory Download Festival 2012 Thrash Hits

Due to the massive sea of mud at Donington Park, Fear Factory ended up being the first band on the Main Stage at Download Festival 2012. Rise To Remain were supposed to do it, but the general weather-based tomfoolery meant that both they and Cancer Bats got bumped off the schedule. Which kind of sucks. Whatever, go look at Gary Wolstenholme’s sexy photos of Dino Cazares, Burton C. Bell, and the two guys they hired to make up their rhythm section.

Sonisphere Festival 2010: Fear Factory @ Saturn Stage – Saturday, 31 July 2010

August 1st, 2010

If Robocop was around these days, we’re pretty sure his favourite band would be Fear Factory. Their signature style of cyber-metal is exactly what a law-enforcing man-machine would be caught headbanging to. Plus he’d really relate to the lyrics. Fear Factory yet again prove themselves to be one of the tightest bands around.

Metal Mark gets ticketed for drinking too much; hangs out with Baroness and Behemoth

February 17th, 2010

What’s going on my metal friends! After two months I have returned to let you in on what I’ve been up to. Some of you may have been worried that I died of alcohol poisoning, maybe I should have three or four times, but I’m here! Luckily I could spend more on alcohol recently, since there were only a few shows coming through the Atlanta area. It worked out perfectly!

December 8th, 2009

So, following Iron Maiden’s all-but-announced confirmation that they’re headlining at Sonisphere 2010, we thought we’d just let slip we’ve heard from a Very Reliable Source that Rammstein will be the other headliner at Knebworth next summer. Considering both names have been touted for months, it’s hardly a big scoop, but what is interesting are some of the other names and nuggets of gossip our sources have given us.

With few exceptions, remix albums are the domain of the die-hard fan and are only ever appreciated in comparison to the original release. In this example, here we have a remix album of the career-ending fanfare that was Ministry‘s The Last Sucker, the George W. Bush-themed album Al Jourgensen had intended to abandon the Ministry name with two years ago.
