28 years of Fear Factory. Oct. 31st marks the first jam FF ever did. Ray's father loaded up his old station wagon with his gear, with Dino and me in the backseat and we drove to South Central LA where Ray had a practice room with his band Extreme Death. This is a pic of the OG Fear Factory lineup in '91. We wrote songs and rehearsed for 6 months before playing our first show. (This was probably our first show in Hollywood.) Dino and I were still living in the same 1 bedroom apartment with Robert Murray (who found the title Fear Factory on a demo tape from Sweden, while we were hanging out and drinking beer with Dave Gibney. He also contributed a few lyrics for SONM) Thanks to Rick Ferdinande for your original photograph. Jörge Castillö was here, too! #burtoncbell #dinocazares #raymondherrera #andyromero #fearfactory #HISTORYLESSON
