''Hatefiles'' is a Fear Factory compilation album of rare, unreleased and remixed tracks released by Roadrunner Records on April 8, 2003. The album is notable as it contains "Terminate" the last song to be recorded with original guitarist Dino Cazares. Curiously, the album's artwork is in the same style the band used during the ''Obsolete'' era five years earlier, with the name being spelled FEaR FactORY. Graphic designer Dave McKean's artwork is also used.

Tracks 2, 3, 4, 5 and 13 all appeared on the Australian-only release of the ''Linchpin'' E.P. Track 13 also appeared on ''Ozzfest: Second Stage Live''. 14, 15 and 16 appeared on the ''Burn'' single from ''Remanufacture''. Track 17 was available on the 7" vinyl-only ''The Gabber Mixes'' EP. Tracks 9 and 10 are early versions of the tracks which would later appear on ''Demanufacture'' as mixed by Colin Richardson, the album's producer. The final album mix is credited to Greg Reely. Track 11 is the same as the version that appeared on the limited edition of ''Obsolete'', but features only Gary Numan on vocals. Tracks 7 and 8 appeared on the ''Cars'' single. Track 12 is an early demo of the song ''(Invisible Wounds) Dark Bodies'' from Digimortal. Tracks 1, 6, 12 and 18 are previously unreleased. - Wikipedia
