Thanks a lot to Yani and Ray for giving me the opportunity to do this.

My name is Dimitrije Kostic and any questions about this tab or any 
others in the Fear Factory Tablature Archive can be emailed to me at
                martyr@fearfactory.com
I will gladly investigate any possible errors in any tablature on this site.

-------------------------------------------------------------

This seems to be Fear Factory's most popular song.  Fortunately for any 
novice guitarists out there, it's also (in my humble opinion) among the 
easier of Fear Factory's sometimes arduous songs.  This song contains 
little of the wrist-wrenching trill-picking that Dino used earlier, on 
"Soul of a New Machine." The verse riff sounds very heavy and demanding 
on the recording, but when you begin this song you will find that a 
large part of its sound is the drumming. 

A very probable trouble spot for many players (particularly newer ones) 
may be found in this chord change...

B  |-------|
F# |-------|
D  |-------|
A  |-6--7--|
E  |-7--7--|   (figure 1)
B  |-4--5--|

To play this chord change smoothly requires that we break a rule of 
guitar playing.  Consider how this change differs from this one...

B  |-------|
F# |-------|
D  |-------|
A  |-------|
E  |-7--7--|   (figure 2)
B  |-4--5--|

To play the figure 2 change, you would keep your pinkie finger locked on 
the seventh fret of the E string, use your index finger to fret the 4th 
fret of the B string, and your middle finger to fret the 5th fret of the 
B string.  However, to keep your pinkie on the seventh fret of the E 
string in figure 1 would be very difficult; what finger would you use to 
play the notes on the A string?  So, instead, I suggest that you begin 
figure one by putting your index finger on the fourth fret of the B 
string, your ring finger on the seventh fret of the E string, and your 
middle finger on the sixth fret of the A string.  Then, to switch to the 
next chord, keep your ring finger where it is, slide your first finger 
up to the fifth fret, and place your pinkie finger down on the seventh 
fret of the A string.  This, I believe is the easiest and smoothest way.

There is little else to say about this song other than most of what you 
will need to know to play it can probably be easier learned through 
trial and error than through me.  Enjoy!

Note:  Major thanks are in order to Rich Broadhead
                ferris@saturn.superlink.net
for pointing out the painfully obvious screw-ups in the previous, really
fucked version of this tab.

Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D, F#, B)
