Former FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares was recently interviewed by HitThePit.com about his recent and upcoming activities. Asked for his opinion on the new FEAR FACTORY record, "Archetype" (the group's first since Dino's departure), Cazares replied, "I don't think my opinion matters, the true FF fans know what's up, they know where it started."
With respect to how he stays on top of his game as a guitarist and how he maintains his skills and grows as a musician, Dino said, "I practice every day 5 to 8 hrs a day! When I first started to play guitar, I used to put ankle weights on my wrists, and black electric tape on the joints of my fingers just till I built up my speed. Now I just practice, and it comes natural. How I grow as a musician is by having the luxury of playing with different musicians and learning their style, and them teaching me new things... different ideals, and having a open mind! I've played or jammed with alot of people, everyone from SOULFLY, JUNKIE XL ATARI TEENAGE RIOT, NAILBOMB, HATEBREED, PAPA ROACH, PANTERA... too many to mention, and a lot of different musicians."
