FEAR FACTORY Guitarist DINO CAZARES Has Words For A Certain Former Member

new fear factory album 2021, FEAR FACTORY Guitarist DINO CAZARES Has Words For A Certain Former Member

FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares has seen his share of criticism lately over certain decisions he’s made regarding the band’s latest album and the struggle to get it completed.  Well Dino has fired back at those who have spoken out against him, paying particular attention to a former FEAR FACTORY bandmate.

“The people who talk shit about me don’t realize what I went through to put this record together, all the $ that I spent for FF to still exist, to keep it alive for the fans, and just for one asshole to shit all over it, because he lied in court and lost everything. I love FF,” stated Cazares, before continuing, “Part 2) you are not the victim when you lie.”

When asked by a fan if this was a jab at recently vacated singer Burton C. Bell, who announced his exit from the band last year, Cazares replied, “Take it how ever u want, just know this, I bleed live and die for FF.”

The comments from Cazares come after a recent interview with Bell by Metal Hammer in which the former Fear Factory singer spoke about his feelings about the final years with the band.

Burton touched on the difficulty of recording while dealing with lawsuits and financial issues, claiming, “I personally filed bankruptcy nine years ago. But after that, the last round of lawsuits plus Dino’s bankruptcy made me go bankrupt again. It definitely broke me, financially.”

When asked about his feelings about Cazares, he continued, “Working with someone you don’t trust anymore and to be in a business where everyone’s coming after you … it wasn’t worth it. I was, like, ‘Fuck this, you can have it, take it all.’”

Cazares first announced Fear Factory would return last September, with a crowdfunding campaign launched not long after. Bell announced his exit from the group in late September, shortly after denying his involvement with the band and the crowdfunding campaign. Cazares stated publicly that he didn’t want Bell to leave and he left a window open for Bell’s return but added that it “won’t stay open forever.” Despite the gesture, Bell maintained that he was “done” with Fear Factory,

In the time since, it’s been revealed that Static-X bassist Tony Campos and drummer Mike Heller are part of the new lineup, though the vocal replacement for Bell has yet to be named. Even with a new singer eventually joining the band, it has been confirmed the group’s next album will feature Bell’s vocals.

It was recently announced that the first new song from the album will be “Disruptor.” It’s expected to drop on April 16, the same day that pre-orders will begin for the Aggression Continuum album.
