Watch Burton C. Bell Cover Fear Factory With His New Band During His Solo Show Last Night


Ex-Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell hit the stage for his first live show under the banner of his eponymous new solo project last night, June 13th. That set took place at 1720 in Los Angeles, CA and saw him running through covers of several past projects, as well his new solo material and more.

Since his acrimonious split from Fear Factory in 2020, Bell has taken to narrowing his focus on this latest venture. This past March he unveiled the first fruit of his labors regarding that in the form of the single “Anti-Droid“. A second song from that project, “Technical Exorcism“, was unveiled onstage last night as part of this first show.

In addition to running through several staples from the catalog of the aforementioned gold-certified cyber metallers during his time onstage, Bell also performed the track “Drive Boy, Shooting” from G/Z/R, his 1995 project with Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler. Further jaunts into the catalogs of others included his cover of Rammstein‘s industrial metal staple “Du Hast, and a cut from his Ascension Of The Watchers project.

According to those in attendance, songs played during this set included:

Dog Day Sunrise” (Fear Factory/Head Of David cover)
Drive Boy, Shooting” (G/Z/R cover)
Technical Exorcism
Ghost Heart” (Ascension Of The Watchers cover)
Descent” (Fear Factory cover)
Du Hast” (Rammstein cover)
Replica” (Fear Factory cover)

Bell‘s backing band consisted of guitarist Henrik Linde (The Vitals, Dren, etc.), drummer Ryan Junior Kittlitz (All Hail The Yeti, The Acid Helps), bassist Tony Baumeister (ÆGES) and Stewart Cararas.
