Due to conflicting obligations, Gene Hoglan recently had to step down from US industrial metallers Fear Factory, leaving it open for replacement. Mike Heller (Malignancy, System Divide) has now been announced as the replacement. Dino Cazares also confirmed it on his official twitter account.

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."

Mike Heller? ... I figured they'd replace Hoglan with another big name. :/

Sam "Samus" Paulicelli would be better option for Fear Factory.

you forgot one band from there and that is DARK FUCKING ANGEL. I know chances are incredibly slim that they ever reform, but if they do..

A publicity stunt for their new album? Wait.....no it's not.

No one wants to work with Dino. Just wait untill they get fired as well. They need Raymond back and no one else.

I should have said this WAY back on the last text but I'll do it now before it's too late...

Fear Factory, just get, get, GET, GET your original line-up back.

it"s ok, lacks something though, but the softer instrumentals after a while of clean vocals are garbage
