Industrial music is one of the genres that I have an affinity for. There is something really cool about bands in this genre that can make something so rhythmically intricate and dark. Bands like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry have made industrial music a household name. I’d like to introduce you to Fact Pattern. This industrial doom metal band from Los Angeles is making quite a name for themselves. This three piece band led by singer/guitarist Ian Flux along with drummer Rannen Bozzio and bassist Jack Lowd are bringing back that classic industrial sound but are injecting a bit of a doom metal vibe to their music. Their 2017 EP Structures is full of doom churning melody with a balanced backbone of industrial, giving it the grit it needs. Fast forward to today and Fact Pattern have released “My Guard Down,” the first single from their upcoming album. Fact Pattern are more than just your run of the mill industrial or doom band. They add lush landscapes of sounds to really set the mood. The melodic nature of the songs also make their style something that is accessible but not in a way that it’s watered down. Do yourself a favor and check out Fact Pattern. You won’t be disappointed!
