Interview With Fear Factory Drummer

In an interview recently posted at Metal Temple magazine Raymond Herrera, the drummer of Fear Factory spoke about the participation of Faith No More bassist Billy Gould on the bandís brand new album, "Transgression" and other things. Hereís an excerpt:

- Metal Temple: Thereís a list of all star musician cameos who contributed to the new album and a couple of cover songs. How did you get the idea for that?

- Raymond Herrera: "The only real person we got was Billy Gould from Faith No More. It was my idea to bring Billy in. Weíve been friends for like 8 years now. We had a side project for a few years and we have a record label too. I keep in touch with him all the time. When Christian [Olde Wolbers - guitarist] said he wanted to bring, in his words 'a real bass player in', and I was like 'uh, ok, a real bass player huh?' I mean that just sounded funny, itís like me saying I want to bring a real drummer in. But he didnít mean it like that, he meant someone that would maybe flow a little bit differently around songs and that are maybe a little bit more open. So Christian wanted Billy to play on 'Supernova' and this other song maybe if there was enough time called 'Echoes Of My Scream'.

So I called Billy up and I told him 'Hey, Iím gonna send you some of these mp3s and I want you to check these songs out, but theyíre really, really rough.' So he was like 'Yeah send me the tracks.' So we did, and a couple of days later he already put bass tracks onto Pro-Tools and sent it back and we were like 'Yeah this sounds great.' So, he flew in and he did rehearsals with us for like 2 or 3 days and then he came back to the studio to nail the tracks out. Then Phil Demmel [guitarist] from Machine Head came in to kind of tutor Christian a little bit on the solos and stuff because Christian was like 'I gotta play a solo on this record'. He did a couple of them and then that was it."
