Fear Factory share new track “Soul Hacker”

June 18, 2015

Fear Factory have shared their new track “Soul Hacker.” The song is features on the Los Angeles metallers’ album Genexus, August 7, 2015 via Nuclear Blast.

Discussing the title of the record, vocalist Burton C. Bell said:

“The word genexus is a hybrid of two words, genesis and nexus. This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a mechanical state of being.

“Ray Kurzweil predicts that the singularity will occur around 2045. Genexus is the term for that next evolutionary process. Where humans are machines, machines are human and the differences are oblivious to the naked eye.”

“This album is a record of thought patterns, psychology and struggles of the genexus generation. The cognitive machine has arrived, and it wants autonomy from the industry that created it. This machine struggles, like every other human has throughout the course of history. This is the story of every one of us.”

Formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989, Fear Factory changed the world of metal, becoming a huge influence on the genre. The band’s unique sound helped bridge the gap between death metal, grindcore, thrash, and industrial on landmark releases like Soul of a New Machine, Demanufacture, and the gold-selling release, Obsolete.
