After taking their leave of industrial metal legends Fear Factory, as a result of the return of original guitarist and onetime bandleader Dino Cazares, guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers and drummer Raymond Herrera wasted little time before joining forces in a new group under the heading of Arkaea. Calling upon Threat Signal members, vocalist Jon Howard and bassist Pat Kavanagh (whose album Olde Wolbers had recently produced), the veteran twosome quickly inked a deal with Koch/E1 Records and issued their debut CD, Years in the Darkness, in the summer of 2009, boasting a notably more modern, stripped down, and aggressive derivative of Fear Factory's patented electro-metal.
