00:37 - Bad English I think Johan and his abnd is prefereing for next Eurovision ,, and I dont miss, JN, Jooe specilly Ilham
00:23 - ScreamingSteelUS I miss Ilham. I think we got along well, and her reviews never ceased to amuse me. Joe I never interacted with, but it seems like he should be here just as a matter of course.
00:16 - Apothecary Ilham I'm friends with off MS, so no worries there. It's Johan I really miss, no idea what's up with him at the moment (and I'm not going to pry, unlike "someone" I could mention)
00:15 - Apothecary I can't say I'm crying over Joe being gone, his music recs are nice, but the site's been a lot quieter without his pedantic comments and attempts to appear as an Argument God every chance he gets
US industrial metallers Fear Factory have confirmed Matt DeVries as their new bassist. DeVries, previously of Chimaira and who recently left Six Feet Under, joins the band replacing Byron Stroud. The band is currently working on their upcoming new album The Industrialist, planned for an early summer release. The album is being mixed in Canada by Greg Reely while artwork for the album is nearly complete. Specific details about the new album are expected in the coming week.
DeVries commented: "I have been asked by Dino and Burton to join one of my favorite bands. I have been a fan of Fear Factory since 1992 and I could not be more excited to be part of this incredible band. We have shared the stage many times together and now I'm beyond stoked to be on the same stage playing together. Thank you to all my fans worldwide for sticking by me and I will be seeing you all on the road very soon."
Guitarist Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C. Bell note: "We are very excited to have Matt playing bass for Fear Factory. We feel he is a great addition to our touring lineup. He has been a friend for a very long time and he's a great musician who will be a perfect instrument in the FF machine."
