Fear Factory are hard at work preparing their next effort, Archetype, which will be released by D3 in the USA, and by Roadrunner in Europe. A release date has tentatively been set for April 2004.
Here’s an update from guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers, as posted at Fear Factory.com:
“What the fuck is up, Dirty's!!!???
“Got to Vancouver on Tuesday. I was supposed to arrive on Monday but I discovered that my root canal in one of my front teeth was cracked and it was about to get infected. So the fucker had to come out! Let me tell u... It fucking sucked!!! That thing broke in half, so they had togo retrieve the other half that was still stuck inside!... Dirty!...
Then they had to cut some of my gum away!!... Man... It felt fucking great! I got a temporary tooth in right now, till I get an implant after this shit is mixed!
“So I'm here and Ray [Herrera] will arrive here on Sunday and Burton [C. Bell] on Tuesday. I've been sitting down with Byron [Stroud, Strapping Young Lad] to show him all the FF bass shit, and I've been staying with him and Jed [Simon, Strapping Young Lad] at their house!... Hahah Jed came home last night around 2:30am in the morning... wasted... and tumbled down the stairs into the basement were he sleeps, woke everybody up... It was funny as shit!!!
“So we started mixing “Slave Labor” with Greg Reely (Demanufacture, Obsolete) and assistant engineer Shaun Thingvold, at Greg's studio where he has done the new FLA and Devildriver albums... and those records sound awesome! The mix on “Slave Labor” is sounding fucking heavy already. Greg knows FF better than anybody else out there, and he makes our shit sound like FF. Every time I hear the songs sounding better and better I get excited like a kid with a new toy! I told him... “No radio mixes, trying to be safe... Fuck all that... Make this the heaviest mix u have ever done!” I want this shit to make u feel like u wanna go in the pit and KILL!!!
“All I'm hearing right now is Burton going:
"God help me pour this gas on me!!!"
"I need to drown in flames to be free!!!"
I'll let u guys know in a couple days how things are progressing!
