Soul Hacker

Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the first single from Fear Factory's Genexus album. "We chose the song 'Soul Hacker' for the first single 'cause it's heavy, catchy and has a lot of groove," commented Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares. "You can really hear the aggression in Burt's [C. Bell] vocals on this one, not to mention on the entire album. We think people are really going to love this song and record; it's super varied, melodic, aggressive and heavy."
  • A lyric video accompanied the single release. Cazares said: "We wanted to make it a little more interesting than your typical lyric video, so we included some live footage of the band from our last few tours and images of ourselves performing the song on TV screens."
