FEAR FACTORY are looking at possibly touring Europe with SLAYER in March 2006, the group's drummer Raymond Herrera revealed in a brand-new interview conducted by HeavyMetalSource.com. During the interview, Raymond also spoke about the group's songwriting process for their last two albums, his gaming business and his drumming influences. Raymond also said that FEAR FACTORY will be taking a couple of months off following the completion of their current North American headlining tour so that vocalist Burton C. Bell can be around for the birth of his first child. Check out the 14-minute interview in both audio and video formats at this location.
