episode 160: Dino Cazares (Fear Factory, Divine Heresy, Asesino, ex-Brujeria)

Doc welcomes Fear Factory guitarist, Dino Cazares, to the show and they talk about the issues they've had with each other over the last few years, the secret to Dino's guitar tone and his stolen modded Marshall, why he felt Steve Vai left some key players like himself out when giving credit for the 7 string guitar taking off, how Fear Factory was able to fit in with different subgenres starting in death metal and then being caught up in the nu-metal explosion, the downside of "Cars" being a big radio hit, the experience being the last original member left in Fear Factory, what the singer search has been like, whether Dino is tough to be in a band with, and what his time out of the Fear Factory was like, working with bands like Asesino, Brujeria, Divine Hersey, and the Roadrunner United album.

This episode features the songs "Surface" by Seeking Sirens and "Disruptor" by Fear Factory.
