Milo Silvestro

See Fear Factory’s New Vocalist Milo Silvestro Performing The Band’s Track “Dielectric”


In August of 2021 Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares announced that he had officially decided upon a new vocalist to front his long-running industrial metal outfit. At that time, Cazares had already auditioned what he estimated to be hundreds of potential candidates to fill the spot previously held by Burton C. Bell within the group.

Many of these audition videos had surfaced via social media platforms and the like. However, some were quick to notice that a potential candidate had pulled their previously public audition videos around the time Cazares revealed he had found a candidate. They also went on to note some suggestive posts about moving to America, etc. on social media made by the musician in question in the time that followed.

That musician was Dead Channel‘s Milo Silvestro, who subsequently has long been tipped by some of the band’s fan community as being the frontrunner for Bell‘s former position. Of course, that new role was eventually confirmed today, February 21st, with Cazares officially announcing Silvestro as the band’s new vocalist.

However, it would appear that at least one fan had the foresight to capture one of Silvestro‘s since pulled audition videos. As such, below you can watch Silvestro‘s own apparent audition video for the track “Dielectric” from the band’s 2015 album, “Genexus“.

Fans of Fear Factory will soon be able to hear Silvestro‘s approach to the band’s catalog in the flesh, as they are just about to head out with Static-X, Dope and Society 1 on the below tour:
