The legendary FEAR FACTORY has announced their highly-anticipated comeback to the European ground. After the recent successful North and Latin American tour legs with the new vocalist Milo Silvestro from Rome, Italy and drummer Pete Weber (Havok), the band is stronger than ever and ready to light up the stages at 44 European shows for the first time since 2016. Joining them on this run are two must-see bands: BUTCHER BABIES from the USA and IGNEA from Ukraine.
The impact of FEAR FACTORY on heavy metal is immeasurable. With a career spanning over 30 years, they have unleashed influential albums with devastating anthems, cementing their position as crucial and innovative figures in extreme metal circles. FEAR FACTORY's sound, a fusion of staccato paint-stripping riffs, industrial-tinged drums, electronic flourishes, and a captivating scream/sing dichotomy, has become a hallmark in heavy music since their emergence in L.A.
FEAR FACTORY's records are cinematic in scope, creating sonic landscapes that mirror dystopian post-apocalyptic futures found in classic sci-fi literature and films, from Ray Bradbury to Blade Runner. On June 23, the band will release RE-INDUSTRIALIZED, a remastered version of their eighth studio album, The Industrialist. The new release features new artwork, live drums, and six bonus tracks. This European tour presents an exceptional opportunity for fans to experience the band's powerful sound live, along with their greatest hits.
Metal veterans, Butcher Babies, have been crushing stages worldwide with their vicious live performance and explosive energy for nearly 15 blistering years. Their stage presence is a hypnotic spectacle that leaves audiences hungry for more as they juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with emotional redemption. With the news of a double album releasing July 7, anticipation for a full Butcher Babies European tour has reached a fever pitch.
Finally, completing the lineup, IGNEA, a Ukrainian prog and melodic metal band, will bring their unique mix of groovy riffs with cinematic and electronic arrangements to the table. The band will showcase their new album, released through Napalm Records, which has already garnered critical acclaim and praise from fans, solidifying their position as firestarters in the metal scene.
