Fear Factory, Shadows Fall + More Deliver Powerful Performances in New York City

Fear Factory / Shadows Fall
Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

New York got a treat over the weekend as Fear Factory played a packed show this past Sunday, May 13, at Gramercy Theater with special guests Shadows Fall, as well as the Browning, Legacy of Disorder and the Devastated, as part of the ‘Noise in the Machine Tour.’

Fans got to see Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares together onstage rocking out and the crowd went insane as they opened up with ‘Shock.’ They also played ‘Recharger’ a new tune off of their upcoming record ‘The Industrialist.’

The vigor that Bell, Cazares and bassist Matt DeVries brought was infectious as their fans sang word for word to every song and got some serious mosh pits going. Fear Factory also played ‘Resurrection,’ Edgecrusher’ and ‘Linchpin,’ among many other tunes, and ended their set with ‘Replica.’

Shadows Fall also tore the roof off of Gramercy Theater as the dread-y goodness of Brian Fair got the blood pumping. They kicked off their set with ‘Thoughts Without Words’ and ‘Still I Rise.’

In support of their latest album, ‘Fire From the Sky,’ the band performed new songs such as the title track, ‘The Unknown’ and ‘Divide and Conquer.’ Fair’s stage presence and energy as well as the length of his dreads were out of this world. The band’s chemistry onstage along with Fair’s ability to get right in fans faces and look them right in the eyes was also incredible to see.

The Browning delivered a unique set, as they featured an overwhelming bundle of vivacity in their performance. Their music was as distinctive as they are as they mixed heavy metal with electronic which called for intense synthesizer action and had a dub-step-y vibe.

The New Zealanders of Legacy of Disorder won over these East Coast fans as they played a passionate and forceful set. As frontman James Robinson bellowed out the songs, the band’s brotherhood and sincerity onstage were evident.

The West Coasters of the Devastated kicked off the night of great performances and quality metal with a excellent set of their own. Despite the a small crowd at the venue during their set, their energy never weakened.
