    So I've read awhile back that Dino was looking to release their new album this summer (obviously that hasn't happened). Then a few weeks ago there was the drama with COW saying that the band had split up again. Does anyone have any solid news about the band or any new music? Fear Factory has been a huge influence on me as a musician and would be a shame if the band fell apart.

    I thought the COW post was a prank. :scratch:

    AFAIK, they are still wrapping things up with the new album.

    The album is going to be so heavy that they are waiting to release it until humans evolve enough to hear below 20Hz.

    I heard it was so heavy that they are going to have to wait to release it until iTunes, Spotify, etc. increases the weight limit on their mp3s.
    I heard it was so heavy that NASA asked them to wait to release it until after a near-Earth asteroid passed, to avoid altering its orbit from the gravitation field generated by the album.
    I heard the album was so hot that they were asked to wait until winter to release it, so as to reduce the effect of global warming (and that it will have to be released 6 months later in the Southern Hemisphere, and that the CD copies would have to spin anticlockwise, just to be safe).

    :lol: I'm having too much fun with that one... sorry guys.

    He's had the album for DH written for about 3 years, around the time some drama with Tim and the previous singer emerged. I wouldn't look too much into it.

    Same here. The new FF is too overproduced. Too "clean-sounding".

    That said...

    The new FF album is going to be so heavy it you will not be able to listen to it while on the bus/airplane/taxi.

    Isn't that... like... Fear Factory's signature sound? :lol: Clean, overproduced, precision-tight music. It's supposed to sound like a machine.

    Also Dino's busy with Asesino right now. Although he's had to sit out because he suffered an injury.
