This was the first song on the first Fear Factory album, and also one of the first songs the band wrote. In our interview with Dino Cazares, he explained that the guitar riff was inspired by European Techno music - not your typical Metal influence, but Fear Factory was not a typical Metal band. Their progenitors were acts like Devo
and Gary Numan
Dino says he started this song with a Techno beat, then converted it into a guitar riff. "Then we decided to experiment with the structure," he explained. "The guitars and the drums come in right at the beginning, and then all of a sudden it tapers off and this low vocal comes in. Then after four bars, just BOOM - it blasts into the first verse and it opens up. It had a very explosive effect."
