FEAR FACTORY confirmed for 70000 TONS OF METAL!

July 4th, 2010


On their way back South 70000 TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival had to make another stop in the Golden State, but they chose the big city this time: Los Angeles. Ashore they were greeted by one of the most influential innovators of Industrial Metal: FEAR FACTORY. That brings the count to 19 out of 40. Who will be next?

The confirmed 19 out of 40 bands are:

Amon Amarth
Death Angel
Fear Factory
Sonata Arctica
Uli Jon Roth

70000TONS OF METAL will sail Monday, January 24, 2011 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to Cozumel, Mexico and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 28, 2011.

Make no mistake, 70000TONS OF METAL is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!

Ticket prices start at US$666 plus US$249 taxes and fees per person and include all on-board entertainment, all meals, non-alcoholic and non-carbonated beverages at the dining rooms, most on-board restaurants and 24 room service!

What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done! Check out for more information and book your cabin NOW!

FEAR FACTORY – Vocalist Burton C. Bell

March 12th, 2010


Interview with vocalist Burton C. Bell

Interviewed by Alan Gilkeson


Early on in the decade Fear Factory founders Dino Cazares and Burton C. Bell had a falling out and Dino unexpectedly left the band. The reasons are still fan mag fodder, but in the wake of his departure Fear Factory eventually strayed from it’s roots and both Burton and Dino found themselves working in various projects with some commercial and critical success. But for both fans and the old friends alike, questions still lingered about the future of Fear Factory, wondering of Dino would ever find his way back. Eventually a chance meeting sparked what would become a drama played out in the media between Dino and Burton and the bands other members, much of which remains unsettled. Still, the two friends recruited legendary drummer Gene Hoglan and retained Byron Stroud and forged ahead amid controversy, resulting in the new album MECHANIZE, a return to Fear Factory’s signature sound. Burton recently spoke to Metal Rules about the new album, new line-up, and new beginning.

I recently was presented with the opportunity to chat over the phone with Christian Olde Wolbers, who rose to fame as the bassist turned axe slinger for Fear Factory. Christian, ever the multi-faceted musician was kind enough to talk shop well over a half hour with me, covering everything from Fear Factory’s current hiatus, to his new band Arkaea, the COW Archetype Randall Half Stack, his studio work and much more. In fact he even recalls his early days in the thrash metal scene in his native Antwerp, Belgium and the time he spent playing for both Asphyxia and touring with Cyclone. Special thanks to Andy Caffaro at Forty Three PR for coordinating this special interview.

Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell

August 23rd, 2005

Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell
Interviewed in June 1999 David Lee

FEAR FACTORY is one of the most unlikely bands to be having a radio hit yet that is exactly what they have with their version of the Gary Neuman classic, “Cars.”  Their music is intelligent and brutal, both qualities that, generally, seems to be lost on radio programmers.  The amount of airplay being given to “Cars,” doesn’t signal a change in radio’s direction as much as it showcases a wonderful anomaly to a given radio station’s daily play lists.   Who knows, what FEAR FACTORY can’t change they just may be able to destroy.   With the advent of the Internet and other alternative listening options, radio just may be on its way out anyway.

In addition to the groups new Digipack release of “OBSOLETE” (complete with extra tracks and expanded artwork) there will be a CD ROM game called “Messiah” that will feature more of FEAR FACTORY’s musical madness.  Ah yes, and then there is another go at the Ozz-Fest, this time as headliners of the second stage, probably, the best spot on the entire bill short of headlining the mainstage.  Things are coming around for this LA based group who not too long ago wouldn’t have stood much of a chance of a record deal let alone a career that keeps rising with each successive CD and tour. Burton C. Bell has dropped in on us from time to time to let us know what was going on and frankly, I couldn’t have picked a better time for him to call.  These guys are happening and completely and totally on their own terms.
