Fear Factory Share Footage From Drum Tracking Sessions For New Album


Fear Factory‘s Dino Cazares has shared some footage of Mike Heller laying down the live drums in the studio for the band’s forthcoming new album. Last week it was revealed that Cazares owns “100%” of Fear Factory following the resolution of a lengthy lawsuit. With the rights in place, he has been working on finishing up an album the band had originally wrapped in 2017.

After being unhappy with the originally finished product, Cazares recently turned to crowdfunding to launch this GoFundMe campaign to raise $25,000 for the outing. To that end Cazares seeks to cover the additional studio time and production costs of having brought in Heller to replace the programmed drums previously in place, as well several guest programmers/keyboardists. Cazares also went back into the studio to re-record the guitars and bass for the effort as well.

According to Cazares, the band had already exceeded their advance for the record from Nuclear Blast with the initial album sessions. While frontman Burton C. Bell‘s previously recorded vocals for the effort will remain in place, it was confirmed by Cazares himself that the pair have not talked in over a year with Bell‘s future involvement in the band seemingly up in the air at the moment. Bell himself had previously been attempting to gain control of the Fear Factory trademarks via a lengthy legal battle. Though exact details were not made public, it seems that Cazares ultimately emerged as the victor in that battle.
