Fear Control is a heavy riffing, loud screaming, double kicking sonic attack from Austin, TX, inspired by metal masters Metallica and Pantera as well as newer metal heroes Trivium, Machine Head, August Burns Red, Lamb of God, and Bullet For My Valentine. Formed in 2011, Fear Control released their debut EP “Conviction” in 2013 & followed that up with their sophomore EP “The Monster” in June 2015. Fear Control now blends the perfect combination of brutal, aggressive, mosh-worthy riffs, solos, and breakdowns along with instantly catchy melodies. And now reinvigorated with a brand new line-up and chocked with new songs, 2017 & beyond looks bright for Fear Control.
