Fear. Domination. Fear. Power. Fear. Destruction. Fear. Factory! Wow what a night we had in Portland Oregon as heavily known Los Angles based headliners Fear Factory signed to Candlelight Records came to Portland, Oregon to destroy the Hawthorne Theater. Direct and destructive support came from Hate Eternal and new power Metal squad Kobra & The Lotus. With a near sold out crowd on a Friday night, no rain, there would be no way Fear Factory could turn this into a Metal slithering, thrashing zoo, right?
With Kobra & The Lotus leading the charge and Hate Eternal accepting the Death Metal baton, the night was off to an amazing opening. Everyone in the building at this point, even the Security guards was ready for newly focused Fear Factory. Opening the show with tunes like the Title track from their 2012 release “The Industrialist”, old school gem “Shock”, and “Edgecrusher” it completely massacred the memory of the break up between Burton C. Bell (Lead vocals) and Dino Cazares (Guitar) after a mere three tunes. Completing the newly revamped and energized Fear Factory is ex Chimaira bassist Matt DeVries and drum technician Mike Heller and you better know that both fit right in.
You can catch Fear Factory on the road throughout the US and abroad summer festivals throughout the year. Look for Fear factory to have a brand new release some time in 2014 and support Metal!
