The pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal, Fear Factory, have signed a deal for North America, Europe and Australia / NZ with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Formed in Los Angeles in 1989, Fear Factory changed the world of metal and have become a huge influence on the genre ever since their inception. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash, and industrial on landmark releases like ‘Soul Of A New Machine‘, ‘Demanufacture‘, and the gold-selling release, ‘Obsolete‘. The band are currently working on material for their Nuclear Blast debut. The new album will be co-produced by long-time collaborator Rhys Fulber, along with Dino Cazares and Burton C. Bell. An early 2015 release is expected.
