Fear Factory Announces New Drummer

Fear Factory's Dino Cazares just posted the following notice on his Facebook wall regarding the replacement of the departing Gene Hoglan and the commission of Mike Heller as the new Fear Factory drummer. Fear Factory's tour in support of the new album "The Industrialist" is set to begin in a few days, and a promo of the track "Recharger" can be viewed here. Here is the press release that Dino 'Asesino' put up:

"Mike Heller our new drummer Glad he's a part of the touring machine - Los Angeles, California 4/19/2012 - Due to conflicting obligations, Gene Hoglan recently had to step down from the Fear Factory throne, leaving it open for replacement. Dino Cazares came to us a while ago and asked if Sick Drummer Magazine could help the band find the ideal guy, and we were more than happy to make several suggestions, some of which actually flew out and auditioned in person. There were many amazing players auditioned in person and via video submission, but it had to unfortunately come down to only one guy.

Dino, Burton C. Bell and Matt DeVries want to personally thank each and every guy who spent time learning the songs and to let you know this was one of the hardest decicions they have ever had to make, but in the end... Mike Heller was just the best fit for Fear Factory moving forward. Mike's abilities on the kit, transcribing notation, his feel, power and precision, are some of the best they have ever seen and they are very excited to welcome him to the Fear Factory camp.

Here is what Mike Heller had to say about joining the band: "It is an incredible honor to be chosen as the new drummer for Fear Factory! It's something I never would have dreamt of as a kid listening to "Soul of A New Machine" and "Demanufacture" over and over again in middle school. It's also an incredible honor to be following in the footsteps of two of the most amazing and influential drummers in metal drumming history. I hope to continue their legacy, creating some of the most forward-thinking and innovative music available today."

You may know Mike Heller for his work with Malignancy or more recently, System Divide. Regardless of what you know, Mike is one of the most talented drummers we know, as well as one of the best drum teachers in the industry. Mike himself studied at The Collective School of Music in NYC and has since instructed countless industry professionals and worked with them (on and off tour) to improve their technique, overcome muscle issues, gain control and a myriad of other characteristics of being a pro drummer. He is a super nice guy and an avid collector of drum gear! Aside from his regular playing, we can honestly say he is the most talented linear player we've ever seen and want to say congratulations and good luck!"

Teodor Tuff To Release New Album

The following press release has been issued about Teodor Tuff releasing the new "Soliloquy" album on June 5th, 2012 through Nightmare Records:

"Teodor Tuff is a band in constant change. Upon the departure of three members in 2010, the band was joined by Christer, Rayner and Terje Harøy, lead guitarist, bass player and vocalist, respectively. Christer and Rayner are brothers, and also happen to play in Divided Multitude. Terje is their cousin.

"The band's sound has now changed dramatically, and Teodor Tuff comes across as a pure metal band with its own distinct style; guitarist Knut Lysklætt's inspiration from classical music, rock opera, musicals and even Middle East folk songs, is mixed with the Harøy clan's thoroughbred metal. As a result, Teodor Tuff's second album - Soliloquy - is a truly exiting release!

"The following very impressive guest performers have contributed to the album: Jeff Waters (Annihilator), Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Martin Buus (Mercenary), Eskild Kløften (Divided Multitude) Jacob Hansen and Tonje Harøy. The four guitar solos in rapid succession on the epic track 'Heavenly Manna,' where Harøy, Buus, Waters and Eklundh do their best to outdo each other, must be certainly be up there among the greatest guitar solos of all time.
