FACT World Debut Album


FACT World Debut Album

Japanese five-piece band FACT released its self-titled world debut album "FACT" both in Japan and U.S. in April 2009, Europe, Oceania, Latin America and Asia in succeeding months.

They started out as a hardcore metal band 10 years ago, and they have continued to evolve from there by avidly bringing in new elements of sounds, taking inspirations from various types of music including dance music, electronica, and pop, creating a breathtaking crossover music that is totally unique.

Another feature of FACT is that they wear traditional Japanese masks. One reason is to let people listen to the music rather than looking at them. Second reason is to show their Japanese identity. The idea is to keep you interested.

The album "FACT" was recorded with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Incubus, Story of the Year) and was mixed by Chris Lord Alge (Green Day, My Chemical Romance). Also check out their remix album "Nivan Runder Soundra" packed with 17 of their songs remixed by Takkyu Ishino, Boom Boom Satellites, ED Banger, Kitsune, DIM MAK and more.
