FEAR FACTORY's Dino Cazares Still Looks to Demanufacture for Inspiration

"Even though the songs are completely different, the riffs are different, it's still something that helps me craft songs today."

Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares is a pretty big fan of his band's 1995 album Demanufacture. So much so that he still looks to it for inspiration and general ideas for structure when writing new material, he said in an interview with The Pit.

"I sometimes look back at that record quite a lot, because it was a groundbreaking record," said Cazares. "And I go back sometimes just to listen — not to the tones or anything, but listen to the structures. But a lot of times, I apply those structures into newer songs. Like, 'Okay, how did I write a song like 'Zero Signal'? How does it go? How does it start? Where does the verse go? Where does the mid-section go?' And blah blah.

"If I'm stuck on a new song, I'll go back to Demanufacture and be, like, 'Okay, that's how we did it, so let's go back and apply it to this song.' Even though the songs are completely different, the riffs are different, it's still something that helps me craft songs today."

Demanufacture recently got its own 3xLP deluxe reissue available here.

Fear Factory is currently wrapping up a new album, which will also be their last with vocalist Burton C. Bell. You can hear a short teaser of some of the new riffs here.
