Florida crossover thrashers RHYTHM OF FEAR will host a two-hour Gimme Metal guest DJ special TODAY, Wednesday October 11th at 5:00pm ET / 2:00am PT!
Tune in and join the chat at THIS LOCATION.
The Gimme special comes in advance of the release of the band’s full-length, Fatal Horizons, set to drop October 14th via MNRK Heavy.
Summoned from the sadistic swamps of Jacksonville, in the heavy metal-rich soil of the state of Florida, RHYTHM OF FEAR worships at the altar of thrash metal and crossover. Committed to unrelenting riffage, the band gleefully reinvigorates the timeless collision of speed, musicianship, and attitude.
Unapologetic bangers like “Dark Energy” and “Ten Theories” quickly became underground classics to a growing legion of like-minded supporters who snapped up the band’s 2011 demo, the Mass Illusion EP (2015), and full-length debut, Maze Of Confusion (2016). The appetite for devastation only intensified with the Ritual Dementia EP (2019), featuring “Vortex Of Torment,” and RHYTHM OF FEAR’s impassioned take on “Over And Out,” a deep cut from the early power metal years of Pantera.
Now the band returns with Fatal Horizons, a sophomore slab of cleverly crafted crossover frenzy. Produced, engineered, and mixed by Joey Jones (Royal Thunder, Cloak) with sci-fi/horror artwork from Mario Lopez (Toxik, Skeletal Remains, Evil Invaders), Fatal Horizons’ thirteen-tracks are richly thematic and devilishly accessible in equal measure.
View the band’s previously released videos for “Tears Of Ecstasy” at THIS LOCATION and “Insidious System” at THIS LOCATION.
Fatal Horizons will be available on CD, LP, cassette, and digitally. Find preordering options at THIS LOCATION.
