Los Angeles cyber metallers FEAR FACTORY played the song”Archetype” — originally written and recorded during guitarist Dino Cazares’ time away from the band — for the first time in years earlier tonight (Thursday, July 4) at the Tivoli in Brisbane, Australia. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Said Cazares after the show: “Yes, I played ‘Archetype’ last night. Some people are tripping out about about that in a good way. I just want to please the fans.”
Asked whose idea it was to perform FEAR FACTORY’s classic classic 1995 sophomore album, “Demanufacture”, on the band’s Australian tour, vocalist Burton C. Bell told The Rockpit: “It was kinda like a joke at first. Last time we were there for ‘The Industrialist’ on tour, we were playing a lot of tracks from ‘Demanufacture’, and we just thought, ‘Why don’t we just play the whole damn record?’ and the promoter was, like, ‘Oh, that’s actually a great idea. We should plan it properly,’ and blah blah blah, and just started talking about it. And we thought about it, and it was Australia that embraced FEAR FACTORY
