"Fear Factory is like a business and I'm just reorganizing. We won't talk about their exclusions." - Burton C Bell regarding ex Fear Factory members Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers.
So there's a new Fear Factory album out. But it's not the fear factory we all know and love, or even most of it. That's because Burton and Dino are having a little hissy fit with Christian and Raymond.
"Christian and I are actually still in Fear Factory...[Burton and Dino] decided to start a new band, and furthermore, they decided to call it Fear Factory. They never communicated with us about it" - Raymond Herrera
Get over it, guys. The new album rules with the Gene Machine on drums and Byron on bass, but it would be soooo much better with the real members of Fear Factory.
Here's a tune from the new album. It comes out on February 9th. Dig it, buy it, play it for friends. It's still rad... and it's the GENE MACHINE! That makes it mandatory by default.
