Assumed it was just going to be Soilwork and Fear Factory at the show but then the Masquerade decided to throw in 4 other bands into the mix - Double Barreled Democracy, Legion X, Martyrd, and Spades and Blades. Legion X and Martyrd were the best out of those 4 bands with the edge going to Legion X. Good music and a lot of energy, enjoyed seeing them perform. Double Barreled was the opening act and I did not care for them. Spades and Blades were the last of those 4 and they did alright. Soilwork was awesome again, as they were when I saw them with Darkest Hour, Threat Signal, and Mnemic several years ago. They performed 11 songs and rocked the house! Speed was somewhat ill at the time so his vocals were off a litttle...a minor complaint, though. Fear Factory performed above and beyond my expectations! I heard that they were not so great live but I was proven wrong. Burton Bell was amazing during their nearly 2 hour set, Campos has finally found a new home with Fear Factory after his stints with Static-X and Soulfly, and Dino was great and kept the crowd energized. Amazing show from them and would definitely see them again! Only complaint was that the entire show was 6 hours - way too long for any show, in my opinion. They should have cut a couple of bands from the show and kept it at 4 hours - that would have been a lot better. If Soilwork or Fear Factory is ever in town, though, check them out! You will not be disappointed.

Another great Fear Factory show at the Gramercy Theater. This time around the boys started the show playing Demanufacture from start to end and never missed a note or lyric. The songs just kept coming with tracks from Obsolete to their newest release Genexus. Dino and Burton provided retrospective on the songs and the bands beginnings to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of Demanufacture. Let’s hope for another 20 years of FF though I don’t know if my body can hold up to that much mayhem.
Great show, great venue, soilwork ALWAYS puts on an amazing show. Even got to meet and greet after they played. First class guys!
Fear Factory was awesome. They sounded fantastic. Hearing them play Demanufactued in it entirety is a must. Soilwork sounded great also. Wasn't a big fan of the 3 other opening bands though. But then again I was only there to see Fear Factory.
One of the best shows I've been to in quite a while.
The last few times I had seen Fear Factory, their show was lacking in many areas. Previous show let-downs made me ask if I would ever spend money to see them again. Well, Fear Factory totally redeemed themselves by playing to their core fans with focus on Demanufacture. Energy was back, sound was tight, and the fans were on-point with lyrics and energy as well. It had been a few years since BCB sounded this good with his vocals. I know that on previous visits, the band was sick, but we got out money's worth. I saw FF tour in 1993 when they opened for Fudge Tunnel and Sepultura (the Nailbomb tour) and that originally sparked my love for this band and the latest show rebridged the gap that was missing all these years.
The concert was better than I expected. I enjoyed Once Human & Before the Mourning but I liked The Bloodline the most. Fear Factory was awesome. This is my first Fear Factory concert and I'm glad I went. Fear Factory sounds just as good live as they do in their studio albums. The place was small which made it easier to talk to the artists and see them around. They were all very friendly and would sign merchandise (Once Human, Before the Mourning, The Bloodline and the local bands)
Support the greatest band ever Fear Factory!!!!!!!!!!
The show was completely mind blowing! The room was well lit and just the right size. Amazing night, and the bands all brought their A game! A night to remember!
First time seeing FF since the Ministry farewell tour back in 2008. Nonpoint was killer opeing up, and FF got the stage ready for Megadeth.
