19:17 - Fearmeister The problem about Polish is that the words don't seem to match the sounds :P
19:11 - Redn1ght Polish seems like it will get y our tongue tied while trying to figure how you pronounced that consonant cluster. :p
19:06 - Zaphod Ah, thanks, I didn't know that. In that case, I have no idea which will be harder for Finns. I also know Basque isn't related to Indo-European. Or any language group for that matter.
19:06 - Redn1ght Finnish, closest languages in pronunciation are: Italian and parts of Japanese. To get a sense of it.
19:05 - ScreamingSteelUS It would depend on your linguistic background, of course, but I would imagine for Europeans or myself as an English-speaking American that Polish would be easier, since it at least is of the same language descent.
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."
