THE MACHINE WILL RISE
It’s time to introduce the world to our new vocalist, Milo Silvestro. The search was long and meticulous, but I know for sure we got the right guy.
It is a big week for us in Fear Factory as we make our final preparations for our return to the live stage touring across the US beginning February 25th on the “Rise Of The Machine” tour. We can’t wait to get out on the road and start kicking some ass.
“This is a huge opportunity for me, I’ve been a fan of the band for many years and it feels very surreal but I’m excited to be part of it. I know I have some massive shoes to fill but I’m here to do it in the best way possible and give justice to the vocal legacy of this legendary band.” – Milo Silvestro

Roadrunner United was a project organized by iconic hard rock record label Roadrunner Records to celebrate its 25th anniversary, culminating in the U.S. Billboard Top 200, UK Albums, and Australian ARIA Albums-charting original The All Star Sessions. Four “team captains” (Slipknot’s Joey Jordison (RIP), Machine Head’s Robb Flynn, Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares, and Trivium’s Matthew K. Heafy) were chosen to lead 57 artists from 45 past and present Roadrunner bands. On December 15, 2005, a concert celebrating the project, album, and anniversary took place at the Nokia Theater in New York City. That star-studded event featured multiple musicians, both past and present, from Roadrunner bands — as well as musicians that did not originally perform on the All-Star Sessions album. Now that album is getting a release in 2023 on multiple formats. Watch the live performance video of “The End (Live)”featuring Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares, and Trivium’s Matthew K. Heafy – right now!
Dino Cazares has shared that Lauren Hart of Once Human is the new singer of Divine Heresy. He will soon start writing music with her for a future release. Dino will play all guitars and bass, and is actively seeking a drummer, and members for gigs. He will not work with any former members of the band. Apparently the new activity with DH will not interfere with Dino’s future plans with his other bands such as Fear Factory. We’re looking forward to this.
Max Cavalera, a true legend and without a doubt one of the hardest working men in Metal, is back with the first new Soulfly music since Ritual in 2018. Although never one to sit on his laurels, since then Max has also treated us to Reluctant Hero (2020), the second album from his Killer Be Killed side project, and last year’s excellent nod to the old school and self-proclaimed “Caveman Metal” record, Go Ahead And Die, with his son Igor.

Whenever an established act loses its frontman, especially one as talismanic as Max Cavalera, fans are usually left choosing sides. Do you go with the musician striking out on their own or do your allegiances remain with the band? Largely dependent on the situation, an amicable split can leave listeners happily following both parties down separate paths to the promise of glory but when open hostility is at the heart of the separation, loyalties are often put to the test.Continue reading →
