Industrial-tinged extreme metal pioneers, FEAR FACTORY, have released a music video for their epic cinematic ballad “Expiration Date”, here:
The song comes from the band’s latest masterpiece, Genexus, which was released worldwide recently via Nuclear Blast Entertainment in late 2015. The clip was directed by Tommy Jones (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL) for Videohammer Studios.
Genexus charted in several countries around the globe, coming in at #13 on the World Top 40 Chart, and once again solidifying the band’s stature as an international force! In addition, Genexus has surpassed the band’s last two releases, Mechanize (2010) and The Industrialist (2012), in terms of first-week sales and chart numbers in the United States.
FEAR FACTORY are currently on a U.S. headlining tour performing their classic second album, Demanufacture, in its entirety. “To me this album sounds not one day older today than it did in 1995,” stated guitarist Dino Cazares, “It’s a metal classic for the ages and I’m excited that we are finally going to be able to perform it live in its entirety + songs from Genexus. Play fearlessly.”

Formed in Los Angeles, California in 1990, FEAR FACTORY changed the world of metal and have become a huge influence on the genre ever since their inception. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash, and industrial on landmark releases like Soul Of A New Machine, Demanufacture, and the gold-selling release, Obsolete.
