This seems to be Fear Factory's most popular song. Fortunately for any
novice bassists out there, it's also (in my humble opinion) among the
easier of Fear Factory's sometimes arduous songs. Most of what is
really necessary for the song is for the bass to hold steady behind the
guitar during the staccato riffing (Riffs A, B, and D, for example) and
to provide backing during the choruses (Riff E). I have also tried to
include open strings to create more resonance, however if you feel this
is inappropriate, you may replace them, e.g...

|—5————————————————|

if you want the bass to have a more staccato effect as well. Have fun!

Note: Major thanks are in order to Rich Broadhead

for pointing out the painfully obvious screw—ups in the previous, really
***ed version of this tab.

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