“Continuum of Aggression” was released in June 2021 via Nuclear Explosion Records. The LP, which was recorded mostly in 2017, includes Cazares and singer Burton C. Bell alongside the drummer mike heller.
In September 2020, Bellreleased a statement officially announcing his departure from THE FEAR FACTORYsaying he “can’t line up” with someone he doesn’t trust or respect.
Bellis the output of THE FEAR FACTORY came more than two weeks later Cazares launched a GoFundMe campaign to help him with the production costs associated with the release of THE FEAR FACTORYthe latest LP from.
Bell said later Kerrang! magazine he broke up with THE FEAR FACTORY was a long time coming. “It’s been in my head for a while,” he said. “These lawsuits [over the rights to the FEAR FACTORY name] just emptied me. The egos. Greed. Not just class members, but the attorneys involved. I just lost my love for it.
“With THE FEAR FACTORY, it was constantly, like, ‘What?!’ You can’t take a lot. I felt like 30 years was a good race. These albums that I ended up with THE FEAR FACTORY will always be there. I will always be part of that. I just felt it was time to move on.”
In October 2020, dinosaur released a statement in which he said the door for Burton come back to THE FEAR FACTORY would not “remain open forever”. The guitarist also revealed that Burton “lost his legal rights” on the THE FEAR FACTORY name “after a long legal battle” with the former drummer Raymond Herrera and bassist Christian Old Wolbers. “I had the opportunity to do something good, and I felt that getting the full name was the right thing for both of us, so after almost four years, we can continue as THE FEAR FACTORYto make more records and tour,” he said. “That’s why it’s sad to hear that he’s decided to quit and, in my opinion, for all the issues he’s had , it looks like it could have been solved.”
Last February, the former NIGHTRAGE singer Antony Hämäläinenwho unsuccessfully auditioned for the singer spot in THE FEAR FACTORYclaimed in an interview that the new FF the leader is “a person from Italy”. He also added that a singer who is “in a band with someone who is a well-known producer/musician” also auditioned for the job but didn’t get the gig.
