Fear Factory members unite with Gene Hoglan

We've been reading reports in the press recently that original members of 'Cyber-metallers' Fear Factory - Dino Cazares and Burton C. Bell - have made up after years without contact, and are working on music again under the Fear Factory name. Considering certain members of the Rhythm were fans of the band in their '90s heyday this stirred mild waves of intrigue.

A new development though, revealed today on Blabbermouth, has amped our excitement up a notch or two! Apparently the FF duo have teamed up with legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Zimmers Hole) to play drums with the band. With summer gigs and a studio album planned I wonder if we'll be seeing the gentle giant on these shores anytime soon?
