Legendary pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal Fear Factory are proud to announce they will be touring the UK and Ireland in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their highly revered second studio album ‘Demanufacture’. The tour will be a very rare event for fans with Fear Factory playing ‘Demanufacture’ in its entirety! They will also showcase songs from their highly anticipated new album ‘Genexus’ – out 7th August via Nuclear Blast.
‘Demanufacture’ , their second album (1995),was a landmark release for Fear Factory and for the Metal genre. It is generally considered as the band’s defining work and a heavy metal classic with its refined production, industrial textures, precise musicianship and greater dimension of sound. It succeeded in giving the band a more futuristic feel than previous works. The concept is based around one man’s struggles against a machine controlled government – with each song marking a chapter in his life, taking huge inspiration from the ‘Terminator’ film series. Relationship with Producer Rhys Fulber continues to this day, him having worked with Fear Factory on ‘Demanufacture’ and ‘Genexus’ plus many works in the interim.
‘Genexus’ is Fear Factory’s 9th studio album (their Nuclear Blast debut record) and was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares, (and co-produced by Rhys Fulber). The album was mixed by famed British producer and engineer, Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Testament, Exodus, Machine Head). Artwork for was handled by artist Anthony Clarkson and drums on were performed by Mike Heller (Malignancy).
