Byron Stroud Talks About Why He Left FEAR FACTORY To Join 3 INCHES OF BLOOD!

As previously reported, FEAR FACTORY confirmed that Matt DeVries is the band’s NEW bass player. DeVries, previously of Chimaira and most recently Six Feet Under, joins the band replacing Byron Stroud. But why did Stroud decide to quit FEAR FACTORY? We had the chance to chat with Stroud at the recent METALLIANCE Tour in New York City, and we asked him this and more. You can watch the chat below.

In case you are wondering what Byron Stroud is up to following his departure from FEAR FACTORY, well he is now a permanent member of Canadian Metallers 3 Inches Of Blood. The band released their fifth studio album, 'Long Live Heavy Metal', earlier this week via Century Media Records.

02. My Sword Will Not Sleep
03. Leather Lord
04. Chief And The Blade

06. Look Out
07. 4000 Torches
08. Leave It On The Ice
09. Die For Gold (Upon The Boiling Sea IV)
