Fear Incorporated Biography.  

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

Incorporated album.

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

'Sawney's Cave'.

 

Blending Gothic, electronica, dark folk and theatre macabre

the album is both diverse and original in it's making.

The album was recorded in two studios-one in Edinburgh and

one in London. The Edinburgh studio 'Mandrake Studios' is

owned by William Westwater.

 

The core of the band are as follows:

 William Westwater-vocals,synths,engineering
