A big and bold piece of modern brutality incoming from In Fear.
In Fear have shared a new track, and it’s a big one.
The tune is called ‘Abyss’ and feels exactly like what it says on the tin.
It is a guttural, gripping and grand piece of modern metalcore battery, that ebbs and flows with razor-sharp riffs and agonising howls.
It is unrelenting and ungodly, just the way we like it.
Guitarist Ryan Simmons had this to say about how it came to be:
“The first demo of the song was written all the way back in 2018, with the intention of conveying the terror people experience during sleep paralysis into music which some of our members were struggling with at the time. We took this idea and ran with it, making “the Abyss” into a catalyst of the dreams themselves. We took the demo to George Lever who really saw the vision behind the song and helped us translate the ideas we’d sought out to portray.
It’s very rare for a song to still capture you and make you feel like you’re really experiencing this for yourself after its inception 4 years ago, but Abyss is just that for us. Every part of the song was written to encompass the feeling of sleep paralysis, the fast paced riffs and high intensity sections to replicate the initial realisation and panic, the aggressive verses to represent the struggle of fighting to wake back up and the dream like chorus as you fall back into a deep sleep, knowing it’s all about to happen again.
Usually songs like these resolve in some way, there’s usually a light at the end of the tunnel. But we find it oddly cathartic to write bleak music.”
Here it is:
It follows on from ‘Let Them Hate…As Long As They Fear’ which dropped last year and sounds like this:
