The Pride In Hate
Posted on February 12, 2008Just a reminder for all you Fear Factory fans out there, Hatefiles is in stores now. And as quoted from the liner notes in this release, Monte Conner - head of A&R at Roadrunner and the man who brought FF to the RR family - tells the following of this piece:
This album is strictly for you, the diehard Fear Factory fan. It contains everything you need to complete your FF collection, from unreleased songs to those that are simply rare, hard-to-find or deleted. It represents both sides of the band, from the high-tech, futuristic metal that made them famous to the adventurous remixes they often put out for those fans who were interested. Except for live material, Hatefiles has pretty much emptied the FF vaults. This is not some hodgepodge compilation that was quickly thrown together with no planning or regard for quality: the strength of the music will become instantly obvious as you work your way through the first few tracks. Detailed notes are provided on many songs, telling the story of how and why they came to be. For me, overseeing this compilation has been a true labor of love as I am still a huge FF fan. When I was a teenager growing up and worshiping bands like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Aerosmith, I would have sold my soul to get my hands on a fans-only album such as this one. Perhaps that is why I take such joy and pride in bringing this to all of you... and to myself.
