FEAR FACTORY: HERRERA And WOLBERS Turned Down Chance To Do New Album – Didn’t Want To Work With CAZARES

February 22, 2010

FEAR FACTORY 2009


Source: Ultimate Guitar

FEAR FACTORY guitarist DINO CAZARES talks about the new album and touches on some of the ongoing legal issues in a new interview – one of the more interesting reveals below:

“When Burt asked me to come back to the band, he actually asked me to come back to the band as a whole. That is, with also the other members as well [Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera]. But the other two turned it down because they didn’t want me back in the band.”

FEAR FACTORY Update: BURTON C. BELL “Not On Good Terms” With HERRERA And WOLBERS – “They F***ed Me Over”

FEAR FACTORY 2009


Source: PyroMusic.net

PyroMusic.net: With Dino having been out of the band for a number of years, were you expecting a lot of eye-rolling and uncertainty from people when you announced that the two of you were working together again?

Burton C. Bell: No, I didn’t expect any uncertainty, because Dino and I are the founders of Fear Factory and it was Dino’s sound, or Dino’s style that really created the sound of Fear Factory. So I didn’t expect any uncertainty, I just would have…. one of the experiences is that people have been very excited and very anxious what we have created for this new album.

PM.net: There’s been a lot of media coverage of the legal banter between the two camps. Has that all been settled now and are you on good terms with Raymond and Christian now?

Burton C. Bell: The legal issues the fans don’t need to worry about. All they need to know is that Fear Factory has not been stopped and we are touring. We have been touring, we have a new record coming out and whatever legal issues are going on the fans don’t need to know about it.

PM.net: Without trying to push the point, are you on good terms personally with those guys now?
Burton C. Bell: I am not on good terms with those guys, they fucked me over.

The Final Fate Of SUPERMAN: Lawsuit Settled In Favor Of Creators Heirs – DC And Warner Brothers Will Lose All Rights In 2013

In an ongoing California court battle over Superman, Judge Stephen Larson issued a ruling Wednesday that awards the family of the superhero’s co-creator, Jerry Siegel, rights to additional works, including the first two weeks of the daily Superman newspaper comicstrips, as well as portions of early Action Comics and Superman comicbooks.

This means the Siegels now control depictions of Superman’s origins from the planet Krypton, his parents Jor-L and Lora, Superman as the infant Kal-L, the launching of the infant Superman into space by his parents as Krypton explodes and his landing on Earth in a fiery crash.

After a court order reverted rights to the Siegels in 2008, they owned the basis of the Superman character, including his costume, his alter-ego as reporter Clark Kent, the feisty reporter Lois Lane, their jobs at the Daily Planet newspaper working for a gruff editor, and the love triangle among Clark/Superman and Lois.

But that didn’t give them the full Superman copyright because DC owns other important elements like Superman’s ability to fly, the term kryptonite, the Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen and Perry White characters, Superman’s vision powers and expanded origins.

The confusion exists because Superman first appeared in 1938 in Action Comics No. 1, which was sold by Siegel and co-creator Joel Schuster to DC. Everything after that was a work-for-hire, owned by DC.

However, copyright law dictates that full ownership of Superman goes back to the Siegels in 2013. That will give them the chance to set up Superman pics, TV shows and other projects at another studio.

Read more HERE.

THRALL WORLD is extremely curious as to how the Siegels will approach the future of SUPERMAN. There can be little doubt that Superman is completely misunderstood in todays world of “bad-ass-fukk-all” anti-heroes who seem to have a a gradually easier time of killing in the name of modern justice. And misunderstood applies to anyone who thinks Superman is “boring” or too “goody two-shoes”.

Superman remains the elusive dream of the perfect hero and a hero we choose to hold onto for clarity in our imperfect Thrall World. Now more than ever before we need Superman and we anxiously await his return.

‘SUPERMAN’ Movie Update: No Script, No Movie Until 2012 At The Earliest – Maybe Never Via WB As Copyright Set To Expire

In a decision announced Wednesday, U.S. Judge District Court Judge Stephen G. Larson found that the license fees the studio paid to corporate sibling DC Comics didn’t represent “sweetheart” deals as they weren’t below fair market value. That means the heirs will be able seek profits only from DC Comics — which earned $13.6 million from Warner Bros. for the 2006 release of “Superman Returns” — rather than from Warner Bros. as well.

Beyond that…

The judge, who conducted a 10-day bench trial, also noted that Warner Bros. chairman Alan Horn had testified that he hopes to make another “Superman” movie but added that the property wasn’t under development at the studio, that no script had been written and that the earliest another “Superman” pic could be released would be in 2012.

[Attorney Marc] Toberoff [who represents heirs Joanne Siegel and Laura Siegel Larson] also asserted in a written statement that the Siegel heirs and the heirs of co-creator Joe Shuster will own the entire Superman copyright in 2013.

Read more HERE.

It’s not clear what the copyright and licensing future is for DC Comics which is a bit out of left field. If we had to guess? No new movie until post copyright turnover.
