Bearfoot - Culture of Fear

Do yourself a favor and skip the Intro track. After that this gets to be enjoyable. Bearfoot play angry hardcore that is typically pretty fast and done before you know it. There are a few exceptions here though and the band can add some experimentation and crushing breakdowns to throw you for a loop.

The lyrics had me a little confused, as some songs come off very serious and others not so much. Perhaps there's two people contributing to the writing, or maybe they're just showing off their versatility. Either way, songs like "Is Lost" and "Outcast" work a lot better lyrically.

There's some interesting guitar work happening here that sets this apart from your typical power violence/thrash fare. It's refreshing and adds that little something that makes this special. It's short, fast and sweet. You might like it.
