So the second demo from these young grinders is finally upon us. I do sense a slight change of direction and development, but I still get an Aussie-vibe from it. Though I�d say this is much more fastcore than the previous demo. Now don�t get me wrong, this is still grindcore, just with a hardcore/crustcore vibe. Anyway, let�s get on with it.
Nine tracks with the majority of �em clocking in at just about 1:15, and I wouldn�t wanna have it any other way. This is just perfect for these energetic, blasting bits. Short, fast, aggressive, in your face and ripping grindcore tunes. A slight metallic string sound, harsh and soar screaming (with tiny doses of growl) and mangling drums. This will easily speak to grinders as well as crusties, and I�d say Fearox should make for an awesome moshpit. Each track is just jam packed with so much energy it�s damn tempting to trash your apartment to bits as you mosh around all by yourself.
Sweden is producing a number of awesome grind acts at the moment, with a few on them really on the go. Fearox definitely deserve some attention along with fellow countrymen such as Splitter, The Arson Project and Afgrund. And I might add that those four acts would make the perfect line-up for one of the most vicious grind tours ever. Let�s just hope some label picks these guys up soon.
