Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares on The MetalSucks Podcast #387
Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares is our guest this week! Front and center is the band’s new album, Aggression Continuum, and the public spat between Cazares and former singer Burton Seabell, whose vocals appear on the album. Dino discusses the communication breakdown between he and Burton after recording the album in 2017, how he is handling all the negative attention from the fanbase, his response to reports of a physical altercation between he and Burton, the reason he left Burton’s vocals on the record in spite of everything, and why the future of Fear Factory with a new vocalist is exciting for him. Dino also talks about his feelings on Digimortal 20 years later (revealing that Bob Rock almost produced it!), the difficulty of replicating a groundbreaking record, how angry fans were that the band used programmed drums on The Industrialist, how every classic Fear Factory album had chaos behind the scenes, the upcoming Divine Heresy vinyl reissues, and his version of the altercation between he and former Divine Heresy vocalist Tommy Vext (also ex-Bad Wolves).
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss the news that Metalocalypse is getting a movie, the tabloid headline that states listening to metal makes you fat, and the controversy involving Megadeth bassist David Ellefson.
