Metal Monday – Fear Factory- Self Immolation

Welcome to the last Metal Monday of May. Before I start I would just like to say, I have been forced by WP to use the new block editor thing that will apparently be hitting us all on the first of June. I do not know if I like it at all… I do not know if I can cope with so much change, I mean, I am just getting to grips with being able to go outside again and live a life with the 1,5 meter regulations and now WP thinks it’s clever hitting me with new shit, have some consideration man…

Today’s song and band do not have anything with my attempted theme choices of featuring the word May in it, but it does fit in with with a book I am nearly close to finishing soon. The book in question is Dune and there are a lot of quotable lines from the book. Most profound to me so far was the “Fear is a mind killer” one.

Is that not simply beautifully put?

Anyhow, while searching for this quote on the google interweb, the first thing that came up was an album I have never even known to have existed, by a band I have had a vast amount of respect for years. Especially since I felt that they took the Terminator theme to a whole new level. To be made aware of that they took inspiration from a line of Dune to name their album I thought I would share it with you today.

Fear Factory’s Fear is the Mindkiller album was released in 1992 and mostly consists of songs that were remixed from another album. I can not say that it will be to anyone’s liking so I decided to share the song that I felt represented Dune the best in the idea of some kind of chant. It is only 2 minutes and 44 seconds long so will be over before you know it.

Hope you enjoy!

Lyrics:

Skin
Your scars
Surface is
Rusty blades

Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out

Oblivion
Your weakness
Is your temper
Is your temper

Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out

Your god
High above
In your veins
Liquid sky

Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out

Immortal
Your savior
Destroys you
Destroys you

Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out

  1. The Litany Against Fear has got to be one of the best known SF poems ever! Good stuff 😀

    And I feel your pain about the stupid block editor! There is supposed to be a way to use, if not fully switch back to, the Classic Editor, but I haven’t been switched yet so I haven’t explored that option. I’ve tried the block editor and I HATE it. For me, the thing I hate about it the most is that it doesn’t show your scheduled posts so you can’t just glance at the calendar and schedule a post for an empty day. Grrrrr.

    Oh, watch this video and see if it helps:

    I just did my first music monday post. I forgot to put the lyrics in though 😀 If I ever do another one I’ll be sure to put them in.

    So this band also did the Terminator theme? That sounds pretty cool.

    1. Will have a look at your post soon as i get home as well as the video. I do not know if my metal monday post looks any different than any other posts, just takes a while to get to know the system… Litany of Fear is amazing pep talk i never knew i needed… Fear Factory has a lot of songs with vibes of the thoughts of machines in the flesh of humans. I love them for that.

      1. Your post looks the same to me. I don’t think the end product of either the block editor or the classic editor actually look different, but it sure is a wicked different way of getting there!

    1. Fearfactory is not for everyone. I will share a song with better vocals some other time. The songs they dubbed on the rest of the album was just a bit weird. It came out 1992 when people made metal to make some form of statement.
