"If 2012 has shown us anything it’s that Punk and Hardcore is definitely alive and well in today’s music scene. Another fine example of this is the ferocious new album from UK Punk band The Fear.

I instantly loved the erratic song structures and technical choppy guitar style of The Fear, its very reminiscent of A Wilhelm Scream at times but The Fear aren’t a copycat band by any means, they have their own sound and I find it really refreshing to hear bands, like The Fear, push the envelope in today’s modern Punk scene."
