About to kick off a co-headlining European tour with Devin Townsend, Fear Factory frontman Burton gives us a few words about the past, present and future of the band.
00:06 | How are you doing?
00:09 | Tour starting with Devin Townsend in two days, are you looking forward to that?
00:30 | You've just released The Industrialist, it's a different album with just you and Dino and programmed drums. Is this the future of Fear Factory?
01:30 | Are you interested in having permanent bass and drumming positions, or are they just going to be touring positions?
02:20 | Your last two albums have been pretty aggressive, do you think you'll experiment any more in the future?
02:57 | Fear Factory has always been ahead of its time, especially with the early stuff, what influenced you?
04:19 | So at what point did you think Fear Factory could be big?
04:44 | Did you think when you released Demanufacture that you'd be playing so many songs from that album so many years down the line?
05:09 | What was it like meeting and working with Gary Numan when you did "Cars"?
06:10 | How do you look back on the Digimortal album considering so many people look at it as nu metal and commercial?
07:26 | Was the original split in 2002 harder because you were at the height of your commercial success at the time?
07:47 | The Transgression album is a lot more experimental album and divided opinion. How do you look at that seven years down the line?
09:04 | Why don't you tend to play songs live from that album or the Archetype album?
09:27 | Have you thought about a new remix album with some new songs techno-ed up?
09:51 | Looking back over the history of the band, what's the one thing you would change?
10:30 | Which one is your favourite Fear Factory album?
11:21 | Being in an industrial metal band, have you heard the new Morbid Angel album?
11:48 | Last words.
Pretty good interview, I liked his honesty regarding not playing songs from Transgression or Archetype...a nice insight into Burton's mind, and I must agree that Obsolete is one of the greats (only rivaled by Demanufacture within their own discography for sure). Nice one Baz!
Good interview, I saw that question about Morbid Angel and was really hoping he had something to say about it. I also like how he was honest and threw Dino under the bus, "we don't play those songs cuz Dino doesn't want to".
