I recently was presented with the opportunity to chat over the phone with Christian Olde Wolbers, who rose to fame as the bassist turned axe slinger for Fear Factory. Christian, ever the multi-faceted musician was kind enough to talk shop well over a half hour with me, covering everything from Fear Factory’s current hiatus, to his new band Arkaea, the COW Archetype Randall Half Stack, his studio work and much more. In fact he even recalls his early days in the thrash metal scene in his native Antwerp, Belgium and the time he spent playing for both Asphyxia and touring with Cyclone. Special thanks to Andy Caffaro at Forty Three PR for coordinating this special interview.
