Dino Cazares To Relaunch Divine Heresy With Once Human’s Lauren Hart

Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares has announced the return of his Divine Heresy project. Once Human’s Lauren Hart has been recruited as the band’s new singer, but a bassist and drummer are still pending.

Cazares commented:

“Latest Update:

I’m almost ready to write some new material w/ singer Lauren Hart. I will be handling all guitar and bass. I currently do not have a drummer or bassist for live or possible tracking, so any professional musicians in the USA interested let me know.

Let me be clear about this: I will not be using any former members. With that being said R.I.P. Joe Payne one of the best bassist/guitarist.

We are currently record company free so all of this will be supported out of our own pockets.

Ps. This does not take away from any other things that I’m currently working on”

Once Human Premiere “Scar Weaver” Video

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Scar Weaver.“ That effort was officially released today (February 11). Vocalist Lauren Hart commented:

“The ‘Scar Weaver‘ track is about dealing with my anxiety and catastrophic thoughts. I give a bad thought (which is ONLY in my head) a true reality by feeding it energy- thus, giving it life, to grow and completely engulf my mind. I ‘sew the flesh on my fears.’”

Once Human Premiere “Erasure” Music Video

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Erasure.” This track is from the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,“ which will be released on February 11. Vocalist Lauren Hart commented:

“‘Erasure’ is a song about blood diamonds. It’s about the clear-cut, horrific message that a rock is worth more than a life to their producers. Although today there are human rights laws and regulations that have eased the violent unearthing of these stones, it is still happening in certain parts of the world. My heart broke as I dove into the meaning of why it’s called a ‘blood diamond’, and I felt compelled to tell its story.”

Once Human Premiere “Cold Arrival” Music Video

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Cold Arrival.” This track is from the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,“ which will be released on February 11. Guitarist Max Karon commented:

“In the beginning of the pandemic, we as a band lost someone very near and dear to us. Being around Jared was our mutual tether to healthy habits and personal empowerment. He was personable, fun, and a constant source of wisdom. To us, he felt like a permanent, immutable fixture in our lives. He left us suddenly and without warning. These last eighteen months have been a solemn reminder that the lives we lead and the people we know are not immortal. The acknowledgment of that harsh reality is ‘Cold Arrival’.”

Once Human Premiere “Only In Death” Music Video

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Only In Death.” This track is from the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,“ which will be released on February 11. Vocalist Lauren Hart commented:

“This is my most personal song on the new album. It meant so much to me, that I really needed to get my hands dirty with the visuals. Logan and I filmed everything to keep the song’s the raw meaning. Musically, it’s very emotional and dire, and the outro is probably my favorite piece of music on the album!”

Once Human Premiere Music Video For New Song “Deadlock” Featuring Machine Head’s Robb Flynn

Once Human, the band featuring former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader, have premiered a new video for their new song “Deadlock.” This track features Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn and it will appear on the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,” which is set to be released on February 11, 2022. Once Human frontwoman Lauren Hart said the following about collaborating with Flynn:

“It was absolutely amazing, are you kidding? didn’t believe it was happening until he sent something back and I heard his voice on our song. I was like, ‘Holy crap! This is real!’ He came back with a new chorus and it was so much better than mine, so my chorus was gone! [Laughs] But then performing with him in the video, that was insane. The energy he brings on stage, he brings in person too. It was a great experience and his energy is so powerful. The video came out amazing!”
