Former DIMMU BORGIR / CRADLE OF FILTH and current BENEDICTION drummer Nick Barker joined FEAR FACTORY on stage as a special guest for one song during the band's headlining appearance at the Manchester Academy 2 in England on Sunday, April 9. Barker reportedly performed "Martyr" with the band in what marked the first time FEAR FACTORY have ever had a guest drummer at one of their gigs.

BENEDICTION have set "Killing Music" as the title of their new album, tentatively due in June/July via Nuclear Blast Records (with whom the band recently re-signed). The CD will mark the recording debut with the group of Barker, who was most recently a member of BRUJERIA and who played with ex-FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares in the short-lived DRIVEN BY SUFFERING (working name) project. Following the album's release, the band will be appearing at festivals worldwide over the summer, followed by a full-blown "No Reunion Needed" world tour starting in September.

BENEDICTION have been confirmed as one of the headliners of the 2006 edition of the Fuck the Commerce festival, set to take place May 25-27 at MZA (Mehrzweckhalle) in Luckau, Germany.

Because Herrera is a f***ing bad-ass... when FF isn't putting out sh**ty music, as has been the case with the last release and at least half of the one before it... The next record better be something more like "Obsolete" was... man, that disc owned. I'd settle for something like "Demanufacture" though.

Benediction might be worth a look into. I mean Barker is a pretty good drummer also.

agreed on all accounts. a back-to-roots album by FF would be awesome. Remanufacture was always better for me than Demanufacture, but only because Re was the first FF I ever heard, and got me into them. Yeah man, Herrera's crazy, hey. Wasnt he like, the fastest in the world a good few years ago? I seem to remember hearing about something like that.

I confess I don't like obsolete that much either. Only track 9 and 10 are nice (and maybe 7). I agree on demanufacture although Archetype deserves alot of credit too in my opinion.
