The Devastated, The Browning, Fear Factory @ TLA (Philadelphia), 05 May 2012

If you like your music loud, hard, and heavy; The Browning, The Devastated, and Fear Factory gives you loud, hard, and heavy. The TLA was a jam packed headbanging mosh pit frenzy that left the punters dripping with sweat. The Devastated are touring on their 2012 release The Devils Messenger while the Browning are still enjoying success with 2011's Burn This World. Fear Factory introduced one single from June 2012 release The Industrialist. It was a killer night full of metal and mayhem.

Sigh - In Somniphobia (Candlelight)

Release Date:

The culmination of a dream? More likely a nightmare given the name of this record, and In Somniphobia certainly sounds that way.
