Cypress Hill rapper B-Real, Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter, and Fear Factory drummer Raymond Herrera and bassist Christian Olde Wolbers are planning an album as a supergroup. The as-yet-unnamed band, which wrote songs together during the winter, will begin recording soon, according to a posting on Fear Factory's Web site (www.fearfactory.com). Fear Factory's management confirmed the site's validity. Both Cypress Hill and the Deftones have new albums due soon, while Fear Factory have just begun work on their follow-up to Obsolete (1998).
