Fear Factory To Release 'Archetype'

Published: 2004-03-29
The definition of archetype is the model from which everything else is copied. "Archetype" is also the name of Fear Factory's newest album. The title also describes the band. For years Fear Factory has been a pioneering force in music. The heavy metal band from LA continues to experiment with their music. Lead singer and band songwriter Burton Bell says that the music in "Archetype" is new, but the attitude and musical style is all Fear Factory. As the songwriter, Bell has literally poured his life into the music. "Technically Fear Factory's music is the story of my life," said Bell, not just songs about himself. Bell also writes about what he sees going on around him and how it affects him. For many hard rock bands the drummer becomes the noise maker to keep a beat; not so for Fear Factory. "From the very beginning the essence of Fear Factory was always Raymond's drumming," said Bell. The boys follow Raymond.

A May 18 appearance in Vancouver is Fear Factory's only Canadian show on the North American tour.
