The title says it all theirs many things pointing to this
1.Soas Eternity vault has many flesh raider prisoners in it
2.They act very much like the feral Rakata
3.Their anatomy seems to follow a similiar style
4.On the jedi homeworld the Flesh Raiders were there before them

What do you think

While they do have eyes on the side of there head, Flesh Raiders lack the risen skull of Rakata, my guess is that they are a genetically altered relation of the Rakata. Sort of a genetically tailored Gorilla, that the Rakata used as shock troops on their enemies.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

That would explain a few things like why Soa was sealed together with them or the Dark side rakata were tunred into Flesh Raiders as maybe some form of punishment.

Fast forward to Voss. We know the Voss diverged into two species through manipulation of the force, so could certainly be the case with the Flesh raiders. I sorta made that assumption in my head long before I ever made it that far in the story, so Voss just confirmed my assumption.
