FEAR IS DEAD
FEAR IS DEAD
SELF-RELEASED

On their eponymous five-track debut, NYC quartet Fear is Dead display a dynamic amalgamation of hip-hop and hard rock. Even though the rap-rock genre has been run into the ground, this squad adroitly avoids pitfalls from the past by combining a rash of tough as nails riffs (“Undead”), driving grooves from a monster rhythm section, and a strong and skillful flow on the microphone with a catchy and convincingly assertive cadence that meshes the imminence of Atmosphere with the earnest of Everlast (“Labor Pains”). Exhibiting solid compositions delivered with a confrontational sense of empowerment, Fear is Dead breathe much needed life into a fading style with a proper balance of head bobbing hard rock and brooding hip hop.
