FEAR FACTORY Guitarist Says There Will Be No 'Radio Mixes' Done For New Album

FEAR FACTORY guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"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 to go 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 [drummer] Ray [Herrera] will arrive here on Sunday and [vocalist] Burton [C. Bell] on Tuesday.

"I've been sitting down with [bassist] Byron [Stroud, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD] to show him all the [FEAR FACTORY] bass shit, and I've been staying with him and [STRAPPING YOUNG LAD guitarist] Jed [Simon] at their house!... Hahah. Jed came home last night around 2:30 am 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 were he has done the new [FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY] and DEVILDRIVER albums... And those records sound awesome!

"The mix on 'Slave Labor' is sounding fucking heavy already.

"Greg knows [FEAR FACTORY] better than anybody else out there, and he makes our shit sound like [FEAR FACTORY]. 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 poor 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!"
