Singled Out: City of Fire (Burton Bell of Fear Factory)

(antiMusic) Forget Justin Timberlake. Burton C Bell is going to bring sexy back with his new band City of Fire! You know Burton as the singer from Fear Factory but City Of Fire gives you the chance to hear him in a new light. Today he tells us about "Coitus Interuptus" from City of Fire's debut album. Here is Burton with the story:

My goal lyrically and vocally was to bring "sexy" back to heavy groove Rock and Roll. RARELY does one hear a male vocalist these days singing to a woman, about how he wants her naked and on her knees in a sultry voice. Not since the days of the real men of rock in the late 60's and 70's. So hard to get satisfaction these days, from a woman who knows what she is doing. Being away from my woman for so long was making me crazy from abstinence.

We approached this song carefully, really thinking of each part, and how the vocal delivery should be expressed. Being that the grooves that were written for this song already had this raunchy vibe, I had to deliver to goods. Sho [guitarist Terry 'Sho' Murray] and I were demo-ing each song in his studio, before entering the recording session at The Factory. There was one take I performed at his place, that was so cool, it could not be duplicated, so we just used that one in the song. It was the "LED ZEP/NAZARETH" style voice singing 'ALL I WANT IS YOUR BODY..." LONG LIVE THE SEX.
