FEAR FACTORY – June 6th – Meet and Greet and Concert!!!

Fear Factory. The name alone commands a respect very few metal bands have. Having been one of the biggest driving forces of heavy metal during the 90’s, and still keeping the flame strong during the better part of the last 10 years, the band went on “hiatus” in 2006.

This year, they came back in a BIG way.

Enlisting the help of Strapping Young Lad’s rhythm section, the newly-reformed Fear Factory will be playing The Trocadero on June 6th with the help of Prong. This comes with the release of their new album “Mechanize”.

Not only that, but FEAR FACTORY IS DOING A MEET-AND-GREET AT RELAPSE RECORDS AT 5PM AT DIGITAL FERRET!!!!

Yes, kiddies, you read that right; Fear Factory will be at Digital Ferret Records signing the new album, old ones, and anything else you can bring, even boobs! I plan on being there, snagging some photos, hanging out, and maybe even getting a slice of pizza (Guys, trust me, more people will come if you offer FREE PIZZA!!!).

So, there you go. Get your shit together and make sure you come out to this!!!!

FEAR FACTORY – Meet-and-Greet – 5PM:
Digital Ferret – 32 South 4th Street – Philadelphia, PA

FEAR FACTORY, Prong, Silent Civilian, and Thy Will Be Done – 6PM:
The Trocadero – 1003 Arch Street – Philadelphia, PA 19107

EDIT: Yeah, the poster says 7PM. That’s because I’m stupid and made a mistake. DOORS AT 6PM, and show starts at 6:30PM. On the plus side, it may be for the better if you get there at 7PM…

DEVIN TOWNSEND and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME! 1/31/2010! THE TROC!


Check out the Devin Townsend poster here.
Check out the Between the Buried and Me poster here.

So, this one needs little help from me, but I’m still pleased to do so with a double-shot of posters!

BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME will be playing in Philadelphia at The Troc on January 31st at 6PM. Not only that, but Canadian Music-Master DEVIN TOWNSEND will be opening the whole affair!

YOU CAN GET TICKETS HERE!!!!!
Now, personally, I’m not a big fan of the headliner, Between the Buried and Me. For me, this show is all about Devin Townsend. He is, without a doubt, one of my favorite musicians. He’s start came via playing on Steve Vai’s “Sex and Religion” album, after which he went on to start his own label and release albums from more styles than you could imagine! From alt-rock to ambient to the heaviest fucking metal ever, and all the way to punk and even progressive rock and metal, Devin’s talent lies in being able to mix and match styles and, through it all, perfect them all.
