Fear Factory is currently deciding on the replacement for vocalist Burton C. Bell, which guitarist Dino Cazares hopes will be wrapped up soon. In a recent interview with The Jasta Show, Cazares said the band is still deciding, but revealed he doesn't want a big name. To use Cazares words, "I kind of wanna give an unknown guy a shot."
"Well, we're gonna definitely do a new record with a new singer. We're gonna continue with somebody else. Obviously, everybody knows that Burton quit the band, for whatever reasons," he said.
"A lot of people are saying, 'Oh, it's gonna be Howard Jones.' 'Jamey Jasta is gonna do it.' 'Mark Hunter from Chimaira…' A bunch of different people that people are suggesting. As much as I love all those singers, I kind of wanna give an unknown guy a shot. Obviously, a lot of the guys that I mentioned, like you and Howard, you guys have a lot of stuff on your plate; you guys can make your own band and be successful.
"I kind of wanna get somebody — just a raw talent, and just bring that guy in, and he can just hit those beautiful, soaring melodic vocals every night. 'Resurrection', 'Linchpin' — all those big melodic songs, I want somebody who's gonna be able to handle all of that flawlessly."
Fear Factory recently announced their first new album in six years titled Aggression Continuum and dropped a new single "Disruptor".
