Performer Info

Fear Factory: Rarely can a musical artist claim to be a true innovator, a creator of their own genre, a revolutionary amongst a sea of sameness. Having invented the “cyber metal” sound, Fear Factory is one of those rare cases.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1990, Fear Factory entered the metal scene with a crushing debut with 1992’s Soul Of A New Machine. Combining death metal with an industrial influence, the original lineup of vocalist Burton C. Bell, drummer Raymond Herrera, guitarist Dino Cazares and bassist Andrew Shives was onto something that had not been widely explored. Even Fear Factory’s earliest sound was immediately distinguishable by Herrera’s intense machine-like drumming and Bell’s tremendous dual vocal style, which seemed to effortlessly switch between animalistic growls and clear, operatic tones. Fear Factory had set a new standard in extreme music, a standard they would continue to bear to this very day.



SOULBLEED: SOULBLEED was formed and taken on by four members who have been true to their roots-Heavy Metal. Dave Rubenhold, Steve Marshall, Elaina Bangma, and Josh Kane strive to create music that is powerful, raw, melodic at times yet always against the grain and always metal. Having played in different projects over the years, all of the members wanted to make more brutal music while maintaining a high level of musicianship and not being afraid to incorporate more innovative ideas. SOULBLEED has always been about the music first and foremost without relying on gimmicks or conforming to current trends. Drawing from a wide range of influences (such as Pantera, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies to name a few) has helped the band shape their sound and find a voice that is unique to SOULBLEED. Since the band’s first show at the world famous Whiskey a go go, they have shared the stage and been very well received with acts like All That Remains, Misery Signals, Scars of Tomorrow, Inked in Blood, Light This City and many more. This band thrives on giving metal fans what they want and truly provides something for everyone.
