Fear Factory start album work

Fear Factory have begun recording the follow-up to 2012’s The Industrialist.

The band are working in North Holywood, California, with returning producer Rhys Fulber and engineer Mike Plotnikoff. The tracks will be mixed by Andy Sneap. The album is to be launched via Nuclear Blast early next year.

In September guitarist Dino Cazares said of the songs they’d written: “I’d say this record would land somewhere between Demanufacture and Obsolete.

“Each of our records are so different from each other – you always have to experiment and push yourself. But it still sounds like Fear Factory.”

Former drummer Raymond Herrera recently slammed The Industralist as “stale” because the band had opted to use drum machines.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
