Racking up large numbers of awe inspiring live performances, Fear is Dead has garnered the acclaim of many of New York’s underground, bringing fans from the Metal scene, and Hardcore / Punk scene together. Melting faces from BK's Knitting Factory to LES Mercury Lounge, most recently packing out Brooklyn's new Metal haven Lucky 13 Saloon. Their unique sound and intense energy some would say is reminiscent of early Machine head and Korn.
In the beginning of 2016 Fear Is Dead released it's 3rd EP, "Eleutherophobia EP (2016)", energy wise a more aggressive project, that reflected the times socially, and politically. "Pretty Ugly (2016)" and "Miranda (2016)" quickly became underground favorites.
In mid 2017 the band released their 4th EP titled "What Remains EP (2017). This project was musically more experimental and creative, lyrically from a darker, more personal place.

Their music, videos, art work all embody what Fear Is Dead is about. Evolving musically, artistically, exorcising demons and losing yourself to find yourself, even for a moment.
"the raw brutality of hardcore music, the coarse edge of nu-metal, and the fresh experimentation of a minimalistic band that sought to deconstruct rather than copy"
