I can tell from looking at you, that you all work out. A lot. So, let’s hear the tunes that get you pumped for another set of those 5kg dumbbells.
I first heard this album when I was rockclimbing with a university friend in '95 or '96. We go out to this remote set of cliffs and there’s these two dudes doing advanced bouldering shit while their portable CD player blasts out these bursts of adrenaline and roaring vocals. I asked them who it was, and they told me it was Fear Factory. I already knew Demanufacture, which was getting some hype on the radio (what can i say, the '90s ruled), but I was surprised that this bit of raw aggression was by the same band. Anyway, I got really energised by the music. Almost managed to scale one of the cliffs (I was never much good at climbing, but my mate was an obsessive who seemed to think that 50 feet of sheer vertical cliff was a good “beginner” climb). I subsequently bought the CD and found it served me well over the years as I became a fucking beefcake.
