Ever wonder exactly what the inside of Roadrunner is like? Why just today our controller, Neil, was comparing Jethro Tull to Deicide - pointing out that they indeed are very similar. He argued Jethro Tull was very anti-religion establishment, that frontman Ian Anderson was as ex-catholic against the church. Ian Anderson, Glen Benton? Hmmmm, he has a point...but we digress... So, last night over drinks at a bar a couple blocks from the Roadrunner NYC office, Sr. VP of A&R, Monte Conner, started spewing little known facts that even the most astute of Roadrunner fans and even employees would never have known...you would be surprised, and you will be... Monte, who has basically been with Roadrunner from the start, could have gone on all night. Accordingly, he suggested a Roadrunner Random Fact Of The Week be instituted on our site. So it shall be - each Friday, we'll now be giving you a little known tidbit from Roadrunner history, as remembered by Monte Conner. Many a revelation will be revealed in due time. But, for our first installment, we start out slow, we shall begin with the legend of the first Fear Factory release, ever. And it goes like this: Soul Of A New Machine is not the first Fear Factory LP. There was actually an LP before it called Concrete. To this day it has never come out nor been heard by anyone. Not even Dino has heard it since 1991. Few, if any FF fans even know it exists. It sounds like Soul but even more death metal and more Napalm Death-influenced than Soul. It has many of the same songs that were later re-recorded for Soul, but it also has 6 to 7 songs that have never been heard, like: Concrete Sangre De Ninos Uleceration Deception Anxiety Echoes Of Innocence and more Roadrunner is unearthing it for the first time ever later this year. If you love old style FF from the Soul days, you will worship this record. put that in your pipe and smoke it...Until next week...
