Now, I'd like to let you all know, that I LOVE guitar solos. But, despite this album (and all other FF albums as well) having none of them, this album is still one of my all time favorites. Because, even without the solos, they manage to make very powerful riffs, and the vocals, bass, and drumming are really good. The echo of the guitars and drums at the beginning of Big God/Raped Souls really sets the mood for the rest of the album. Unlike the newer FF albums, Burton C. Bell actually Death Growls, instead of just yelling roughly, and his growls rival that of Chris Barnes and Dave Vincent. His melodic vocals, while used sparingly compared to later albums, still convey the emotion and energy of other releases. Back to the riffs, Dino Cazares actually does more than the familiar "strum one chord over and over to sound heavy" Nu Metal riff used often in later releases, and by many Nu Metal bands such as that of Mudvayne and Slipknot. The riffs he creates are pure Death Metal, and when he does do the Nu Metal thing, since it's used so rarely, it actually does sound good. Raymond Herrera as always, has excellent drumming. I like all the tracks, except for Dragged Down by the Weight of Existence. It's still a good track, just it doesn't stand out as far as I'm concerned.
Now, onto the history of this album...
Obviously, I won't cover every aspect (if you wanna know the whole story, buy the album), but it all began with Dino and Raymond meeting up in 1990, and they started jamming together. Eventually, they left the bands they were currently with, and started Fear Factory with Burton C. Bell. They recorded this album with Ross Robinson, who then, was just getting started as a producer.

This album was recorded back in 1991 before Fear Factory even had a label. But it was recorded at Blackie Lawless's recording studio, so it has quality to it. It was never released however at the time because the band left the producer who threw this album together for them, so when they signed with RoadRunner, they re-recorded most of the songs from this album. Unfortunately, although exactly half of the songs from this album were re-recorded for their official debut (Soul of a New Machine), they were never able to top the recordings on this album. It's bone-crunching in every way you can imagine. Nearly all of the songs were later re-done by the band, even beyond Soul of a New Machine, but you'll never find better versions of these songs than on this album. Bone-crunching, loud, heavy, death metal from Fear Factory, if it wasn't for a select few tracks from their official studio release, this would be all you need.

The dark, nihilistic world of Fear Factory started with this ugly yet promising album of demersal. From "Big God/Raped Souls" to "Ulceration", you'll love this hard-hitting 16-track demo. This was never released because this was only directed to Roadrunner Records, a former extreme music label which supports the reformed FF, Slipknot, and Nickelback. "Self Immolation" has a lot of pained screams in them -- half of them reach or extend the ungodly, inhuman level. The producer is Ross Robinson, best known for producing the 2nd and 3rd Slipknot (Slipknot and "Iowa") album respectively, and Korn's self-titled debut. Wanna know what he applied to songs like "Blind" or "My Plague"? Listen to "SufferAge" (the best track on this album), "Soulwomb" and "Echoes Of Innocence". Half the songs would get recorded on "Soul of A New Machine", or reborn as new songs, for example, "Soulwomb" = "Soulwound" (Obsolete), and "Echoes of Innocence" = "A Therapy For Pain" (Demanufacture). Dino Cazares, former guitarist, now with Tony Campos of Static-X's side band, Asenino, says the album only cost 5 grand to make, and he played both bass and guitars after the vocals and drums recorded -- yes, it was a cheat, but a very smart one -- so the album has a 10,000 dollar feel. Concrete proves it is better than Soul. If you're a true FF fan, pre-Obsolete or post-Obsolete, you MUST get this album!

Man, I loved, Fear Factoy's Soul Of A New Machine. After that, they lost me. I don't know what the heck they were doing. But I still bought all their albums.
I was skeptical about this album at first, but I heard they were breaking up and since I have all their albums, I thought why not?
I tell ya. I am GLAD I picked up this masterpiece. This is by far the greatest thing the band has done since Soul Of A New Machine. In my opinion, Fear Factory has always been an interesting band, however as I said. I didn't get into their works post Soul Of A New Machine. This is a must have Fear Factory album.
Another cool element about this album is the liner notes. Some interesting writings in there. Get this!

While I knew this was coming out, I must admit that when I saw it in the new music rack I got this sudden rush...This is a surreal listening experience...almost like watching home videos of your children when they were younger that someone else had that you didnt know existed. You will listen to this and marvel at the growth, maturity, and progression of this phenomenal band. You will come to appreciate the influence that they have had on all walks of rock n roll..not just metal. Listening to Burton on this album makes you shake you head in disbelief...you truly witness the birth of a singer in retrospect. The joy of this album are the hidden clues of the things to come. Lets fact it..it is raw and gritty...hence the name..concrete...The lyrics are uninterpretable, soft, and you can sense Burton's reluctance to let his melodic side shine thruough. Yet...there are clues and hints of what this band was capable of. You will listen to this album and hear A Therapy for Pain....Self Immolation previews Edgecrusher...and on and on...every song is a trip back that every true fan will be able to cling to. Those AD (after Demanufacture) FF fans will not appreciate this...The PD (pre...) will surely celebrate this release. This album should celebrate this bands accomplishments...do not use it to compare to Digimortal...if you use this to blast Digimortal then you never ever udnerstood what this band set out to do in the first place. Bravo FF...RIP...I miss you.
