Fear Before The March of Flames is dead and has been reborn as Fear Before. With the addition of a new drummer, Denver, Colorado’s finest musical export decided to shed half of their name. Fear Before reflects not only a new moniker, but also a new musical vision. It builds upon the foundation laid on their preceding full-lengths: 2006’s The Always Open Mouth, 2004’s Art Damage and 2003’s Odd How People Shake. The songs bulge with an increased use of dynamics, nearly every one boasting unexpected twists. Yet the standout feature of Fear Before is the attention given to the vocals. David Marion pushes himself to utilize many different tones and voices, while guitarist Adam Fisher provides an equally bewildering array of vocal styles. The band enlisted a battalion of friends to add vocal ammunition, including members of Fall of Troy, Portugal. The Man and Heavy Heavy Low Low. Casey Bates once again mans the boards and gives Fear Before the larger than life sound it deserves. Blending the progressive melodic sensibility of Circa Survive with the brute hardcore force of Converge, Fear Before has crafted what is easily their masterwork.
