Fear Factory update

The band has posted an update on their website, regarding the status of their upcoming album. They will be hitting the studio on September 5th in L.A., although they haven't picked the actual studio yet. They haven't picked a producer yet either. Apparently Bob Rock (thought album was too heavy) and Toby Wright (working on new Ozzy) are out of the running. Fear Factory has written 21 new songs, 8 or 9 of which will appear on the new album, along with some unwritten ones. The band plans to update fans via their website once the recording process begins.
