Dino Cazares Praises Black Lives Matter-Themed Fear Factory Cover
Dino Cazares has given an enthusiastic stamp of approval to a Black Lives Matter-themed cover of the Fear Factory song “Big God / Raped Souls,” from 1992’s Soul of a New Machine.
The new version, which has been titled “Blue Gods – Black Souls,” adapts the lyrics to the subject matter of racism and police brutality. It was created by Mayowa Ifah (drums), Alejandro Barrios (bass), Alan Strange (guitar), Sean McManus (vocals/revised lyrics), and Brent Wilkinson (synths/vocal FX).
When the quintet sent Cazares the cover, he responded by calling it “probably the most amazing thing anyone has ever done to one of our songs.”
