Shortly after the release of the their album Soul Of A New Machine, the band released an EP of five songs from that CD turned into what sound like techno songs. For anyone who happened to get the 2004 reissue of Fear Factory‘s Soul Of A New Machine album, you received this disc for free as a bonus disc. However, anyone interested in buying this CD seperately, here’s the skinny you need on it.

Unless you are a die hard Fear Factory fan, I’d suggest you skip over this release, especially if you’re not into raving. This EP is very reminiscent of the remix CDs put out from the band White Zombie as well as Rob Zombie, except the remixes aren’t all that impressive. Much of them are just long, overdrawn beats that play over and over with the actual song’s music sampled into it here and there to extend the track lengths.

They do include the LP version of “Self Immolation” on this release, so that’s a plus. Aside that, they turn heavy as hell songs, especially “Martyr” and “Self Immolation”, into crap you will want to crack a glow stick to. “Scapegoat (Pigfuck Mix)” is really the only good techno-mixed song on this release, since it’s pretty close to the original and uses a lot of the original music and video samples compared to the others. Clearly this release was aimed more at the avid industrial fan then the metal fan.

It is a nice piece to have in the collection if you’re a collector of this band, and if you must have the original instead of the remastered version that’s free with the Soul Of A New Machine release (which happens to sound much better in comparison to the original, you can hear the industrial sound effects used on the remastered version much clearer), then check with your local used CD and you can probably find a copy cheap.
