Album Review

Dance bands seem to have an endless supply of remixes at their disposal — rarely heavy metal bands. But not if you're Fear Factory. Due to the group's fondness for industrial sounds that often border on "dancefloor-friendly," this shouldn't come as a surprise, as the 2003 compilation Hatefiles ties up all the loose ends — collecting remixes, demos, and rarely heard tracks.
