About the artist behind Flashpoint Tab:

Fear Factory is a Los Angeles, California based metal band. They formed in 1989 and have since released seven full-length albums and a number of singles and remixes. Over the course of their career they have evolved from a succession of styles, as well as steadily pioneered a combination of the styles death metal, groove metal, thrash metal and industrial metal.[1][2][3][4] The resultant sound proved to be enormously influential on the metal scene from the mid-90s and onwards.[7] Fear Factory is also notable among metal bands for their heavy use of science fiction elements in their songs and concept albums. Their most recent album, Transgression, described as a more experimental and atypical effort, has also contained elements of pop music[8] and progressive metal.

Fear Factory disbanded in March 2002 following some internal disputes, but they reformed later that year minus founding member Dino Cazares adding bassist, Byron Stroud, and casting then-bassist Christian Olde Wolbers as guitarist.

The band has toured with the likes of Black Sabbath, Pantera, Iron Maiden, Slayer, System of a Down, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Mastodon, Misery Index and Rammstein; performed at three Ozzfests as well as the inaugural Gigantour and has had singles in the US Mainstream Rock Top 40 and albums in the Billboard Top 40, 100 and 200. They are currently in the pre-production stages of the recording of a new full-length album and, for the time being, are functioning independent of a record label.[9] Prior to 2001 they have toured around 2000 shows. They have sold over 1 million albums in the U.S. alone. Fear Factory's notable albums are Demanufacture & Obsolete.
