- Fear Incorporated 'Phobos' Review
- Delicious guitar worms through â€˜Clownâ€™ (fear of those miserable entities being Coulrophobia) as the song bucks and kicks like colourful goth, keenly ambitious vocals hurdling a ramshackle array of sly musical ideas which converge crunchily. Great fun. â€˜Suffocationâ€™ may be about boring old claustrophobia but itâ€™s wickedly wayward, loping and sliding into melodrama, curious vocal shudders matching the ruptured rhythm. [Read More...]
- Mick Mercer 'Phobos' review
Manic Depression Records
Obviously they gave themselves something ridiculously difficult to follow having released such a majestically imaginative debut as “Sawney’s Cave” but here they bring us a set of song dealing with phobias, so there’s still a central current trickling through the sewer of fear.
‘Dying To Get Out’ deals with the fear of being buried alive, which you probably know better as Taphephobia, and it’s an engagingly seeping morass, the vocals somewhat buried themselves, as the bass boldly leads the song upwards towards the light. I’m not sure it makes for a real phobia as it’s hard to imagine anyone who wouldn’t dislike the idea of being in this position. Workmanlike drums suggest a shape, guitar veers away and back behind the tense vocals. Post-punk to the core. ‘Submerged’ is airier in atmosphere with a sternly wielded spoken word central presence. Fear of water, aquaphobia if you will, dictates that high swirls of electronic sound remain above the vocals as the sparse sounds create an unnerving atmosphere.
‘Wrong Turn’ is cutely itchy with a fluid burst here, a dizzy constriction here, and we’re onto a fear of getting lost (yes, mazephobia) which may no longer apply in this satnav era. Drums stoke slowly, guitar splinters easily as bruised vocals vibrate as a downbeat rock struggle develops. ‘Dead Of Night’ does that Sex Gang/Bauhaus fusion thing, with a looser feel, while the vocals extended into a subtly angled howl. It’s the fear of dark which has him quivering here. Interestingly, one fear of Darkness is Scotophobia! A mellow menace accompanies the vocals as the sound seethes in the background, given heart by rumbling drums. ‘Fear Is A Man’s Best Friend’ is oddly pretty while depicting the fear of fear itself (phobophobia) because as it grumbles along in a depressed crawl the tinkled keys ripple and I start to image some desolate café in Paris, while a migraine develops. It ends with a storybook mentality, a knocking at the door…
Delicious guitar worms through ‘Clown’ (fear of those miserable entities being Coulrophobia) as the song bucks and kicks like colourful goth, keenly ambitious vocals hurdling a ramshackle array of sly musical ideas which converge crunchily. Great fun. ‘Suffocation’ may be about boring old claustrophobia but it’s wickedly wayward, loping and sliding into melodrama, curious vocal shudders matching the ruptured rhythm. ‘Spooked’ has a scuzzier bed of guitar nettles in which resolute vocals wrestle while contemplating a fear of ghosts. Surely phasmophobia is a double-edged phobia as you’d have little reason to expect them until after nightfall, so just stay awake. Constantly. (Dr. Mick!) This has a doomier flow, the vocals agonised as the rhythm shines in its maudlin control.
‘Solitary Confinement’ is for people who want more than one phobia as fear of solitary confinement (Isolophobia) is so damn close to claustrophobia, meaning some people just can’t enough. It’s a post-ambient slurry of sound, vocals dramatically placed in the oddly sizzling mix until bells come to the rescue. Then they leave with ‘Hocus Pocus’ dedicated to Wiccaphobia, the fear of witches and the unctuous undulations are striking, opting for some aromatic goth clattering and some scalded Macbeth.
It’s a very fine, murky record. Admittedly, it doesn’t have the same impact as the debut because that was fleshing out something we knew little of whereas this concerns things we think we know, but the more you listen the more the tightly dark entities open up and the vignettes settle into their own space and place. It also made me realise I don’t think I have an actual phobia, so I feel cheated. (Assuming fear of Midsomer Murders ending doesn’t count?) Done be scared now, follow these links.
- Sawney's Cave album review
- This is not passive music, it is something that happens to you, and you need to react. It needs to have you fight back, listen carefully and weave through. If you stop for any moment, you may miss a noise, a note, a lyric, and effect, something that changes the song completely for you.
This album isnâ€™t for the baseline horror music fans. It is a little too different, too removed, too avant garde for some people, and that is fine, not everyone has to get behind it, but holy hell, I wish people would. [Read More...]
- Dying To Get Out Single Review
- The A-Side, 'Dying To Get Out' is a boogieing powerhouse of a song. Minimalist production, but busy sounds and noise work help to create a bare bones feeling that brings to mind Bauhaus or even certain Peter Murphy solo works. The pulsing riff is stuck in my head.
- Phobos review
- When I first got into this band I was excited. I could jam their music and get all of the weirdness and oddities I wanted out of them. There was a small place in my mind though that worried that they would fizzle out. I was a little scared that there just wouldnâ€™t be a next album, that the band wouldnâ€™t be able to keep up a sustained style and that they would collapse, or that there would be a next album, and it would suck. One thing I have come to get used to with truly strange bands is that sometimes the follow up is just weak. The guys and girls in the bands just cant out-do themselves, so the next outing is a weaker repeat of what we already heard. The stranger the band, the more likely that outcome is. So I was worried. I was worried that the genius of 'Sawney's Cave' would be left in the backs of iPods and CD racks everywhere. Luckily, this album ups the weird, ups the melody, and ups the style. In short, this album is even better. [Read More...]
- Dark Carnival album
Ideas for the new Fear Incorporated album 'Dark CarnIval' are being put together and written at this time.
Many tracks have been written for this and this new album is themed on a terrifying troupe of misfits,freaks and geeks touring the wastes in search of unwary towns and villages to put on their ghastly performance with their pandemonium circus show.
Dark Carnival again will bring a new sound to Fear Incorporated-never wishing to stay in the same vein and exploring new boundaries to petrify our audience.
Circus organs will screech and we will pump horror into your hearts as the carnival klaxons scream and wail to our blood curdling soundtrack of fear and blood stained candy floss..
So just who are this heinous bunch of miscreants in this troupe of terror?
An undead Elvis,Lazurus Rattle-a man who will not die,a reptilian Lizard Lady and a Demon trapped in a box amongst other horrible characters...
Stay tuned for more updates on this macabre musical maelstrom.

Fear Incorporated are a new Theatre Macabre-Avant Garde-
Baroque ‘n’ Roll band from the UK. An eclectic and dark approach
to alternative music fusing different types of styles to portray a
selection of stories which will feature elements of the macabre-real
and unreal, past and present.
Fear Incorporated was formed by Cam Campbell formerly from the
legendary death rock Gothic band ‘Sex Gang Children‘ and William
Westwater from Cyberpunk band ‘Sensory Savage.’
After a discussion on how to approach the project it was decided
that the album themes would be based on Fearful subjects such as death,
cannibalism, phobias, murder and other such noir material so the
band was fittingly named ‘Fear Incorporated’.
Sawney Bean was chosen as the first theme for the first Fear
He was a 16th century Scottish myth that was used to threaten
young children who would not sleep at night.
The story tells us he took to a cave with his wife where they
captured, murdered and ate unsuspecting passers-by and
travellers whilst bringing up a incestuous barbarous family of
flesh eating lunatics. A grizzly macabre tale indeed.
A plethora of tracks were recorded for the album and then
hand picked to make a chronological macabre musical album

- FEAR INCORPORATED
- An extraordinary thing, this album from â€˜Theatre Macabreâ€™ artists Fear Incorporated. Imagine Bauhaus putting on a lusty modern production of Macbeth and youâ€™ll be close to the feel and shape. As odd in their own way as The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, but with a dedicated direction to follow, with a sharper focus on one story, they deliver an album or swerving peaks and troughs, the latter full of body parts.
- FEAR INCORPORATED DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE
The debut Fear Incorporated album was released 6th December on Plastic Frog Records-a German alternative record label.
It is available through the Plastic Frog Records website to purchase now or from the webstore on this site.
