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."
