London metal band, After Smoke Clears, swoops in with “The Fear,” a brutal combo with CJ McMahon from Thy Art is Murder.
What really draws me into this track is the increasingly intense and energetic growl lines. The track doesn’t stop at a singular style of showing aggression, alternating between slow and fast paced yelling. The main riff section really picks up with spitting lines and driving progressions. Being a bass player, I always enjoy a good crunchy bass line, and this track doesn’t disappoint when slowing down around the 1 minute mark. They’ve even found space for a chunky doom breakdown in this 3 minute banger. If you like a constant stream of aggression, with clarity and strong riffing, give this one a look!
