Fear Factory; a band I’ve always had a hard time getting into. For some reason or another, I seem to be one of the select few who don’t get the urge to smash bones and crack heads when hearing this band. I don’t get it. They look like bad-asses, from what I’ve listened to they seem talented, plus most band members rock their own custom facial hair. But just because I’m not a huge fan of Fear Factory, it doesn’t mean that my friends have the same feelings. In fact, one of them happens to be in their latest video!
Fear Factory: Fear Campaign
Directors Ian McFarland (formerly of the hardcore band Blood for Blood) and Mike Pecci sure know how to pump out fun original ideas. They somehow managed to create a flip-book vibe within the video and still maintain the band’s brutality. Oh yeah, those pics were taken by photographer Heather McGrath. Check out her work, cuz it rocks.
Did you catch that awesome dark-haired girl going berserk-shit? If your eyes were quick enough, they spotted my friend Kelly. You may remember her from that short film I reviewed eons ago called Capture Device (another piece of Mike Pecci’s glory). If you don’t remember, it only makes sense to watch it. Trust me, it’s worth the 10 minutes.
Now that Monday has once again reared it’s serpentine head, the time has come to scrub the dried vomit out of the sink, figure out why you slept with your boots on, and to ready your liver for the weekend to come. Cranking Fear Factory while cleaning your apartment of eternal stench should make the week go by faster. \m/
