So, they just had the acoustic on hand, or did Dino eat all the amps?

Fear Factory have been making the rounds in Europe lately, doing heavy promotion for their new cd Mechanize. At once such stop, lead singer Burton C Bell grabbed an acoustic guitar and performed a song from his solo group Ascension of the Watchers. FF guitarist Dino Cazares watched intently, probably while imagining chowing down on 20 beer-filled double cheeseburgers. Here's the clip:

While the clip isn't exactly great shakes, it did bring up a good question: would Fear Factory sound good acoustic? I'd imagine a few of their slower songs would sound okay, but anything off Demanufacture would probably end up looking silly.

Now, another thought: what other bands would you like to hear go acoustic? I'd pay good money to see Slayer go unplugged for Seasons in the Abyss. On the flipside, I've heard acoustic Metallica, and outside Nothing Else Matters or the first Unforgiven, that's just a horrible idea for them.
