Interview – Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory


Burton C. Bell is one of the most influential metal vocalists of all time. He is best known for his work as vocalist and sole consistent member of Fear Factory, but Burton can also be heard in many other projects, including his mellow ambient project Ascension of the Watchers.

Fear Factory just released their eighth studio album, The Industrialist, and they are currently on tour promoting it.

Here is a phone conversation in which we discuss the new album, his work with Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler, concept albums, Rhys Fulber, Texas, Bill Ward’s love for Fear Factory, the recent internet clash with former bassist Byron Stroud and much more.

Listen to the full interview with samples of the new album after the jump….


Pick up The Industrialist by Fear Factory which will be released on June 5th via Candlelight Records. Also, check out the band on tour this summer on the Shockwave Festival.
