FEAR FACTORY's new CD, "Archetype", is due on April 20 through Liquid 8 Records (parent company of D3 Entertainment). The follow-up to 2001's critically panned "Digimortal" was recorded at Rumbo Recorders in Los Angeles with engineer Ken Marshall (SKINNY PUPPY) and was mixed in Vancouver with Greg Reely (MACHINE HEAD, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEVILDRIVER).

SLIPKNOT are currently finishing up the recording of their as-yet-untitled new album with producer Rick Rubin (SYSTEM OF A DOWN, SLAYER, AUDIOSLAVE). A brand new SLIPKNOT track, entitled "Don't Get Close", will be featured in an upcoming Activision videogame, tentatively due in April. A slightly reworked version of the song is expected to appear on the band's much-anticipated follow-up to 2001's "Iowa", due this summer through Roadrunner Records. An Ozzfest second-stage co-headlining stint is believed to be in the works as well.
