I like Fear Factory a lot but I don't know if I'll be picking this up. It's great to have Dino back cuz he was arguably the most important member of the band but no Raymond Herrera? It's like how Slayer was without Dave Lombardo, the music was good but the vibe was weird. Gene Hoglan is an amazing drummer but it's just not the same. STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!

on the contrary, Gene Hoglan is the best out there for music like FF, this drumming demi-god played with names like Chuck Shuldiner in late 90's in Death and with Devin Townsend in Strapping Young Lad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qt1-GOx-zo), together with Byron Stroud... sorry HC FF fans, but i really think this is going to be awesome, got high expectations from new FF

Zontar's three questions = my reaction.

FF have been fairly hit and miss lately, can't say I'm all that excited about this.

Archetype and the REMASTERED version of Demanufacture are the only albums even worth mentioning.

Dino is a waste of time these days. Divine Heresy is Fear Factory with more notes.

Gene Hoglan is a great drummer though so I can't knock that.

Might be a bit strange without Rey, but no one can deny Gene's greatness.

well if them without herrera are going to be like slayer without lombardo then i won't mind, lombardo is one of the best drummers up there but he is not as versatile as paul bostaph. and my favourite slayer album as a whole is god hates us all.love reign in blood but it has for me only 2 great tracks..
that's my personal opinion, glad FF are releasing new material :D

Gene Hoglan is a great drummer and I'm interested in hearing how he will fill Raymond's shoes but if you ask me true FF is Bell on vocals Raymond behind the kit and Dino on guitar. The last couple of albums may not have had Dino in person but Christian did imitate his style pretty damn closely. I will definetly check this out since Dino is back and Gene is one of my favorite drummers.
