BOUND IN FEAR release new single ‘Beyond The Mire’

UK deathcore quintet Bound In Fear have released new single / video ‘Beyond The Mire’, the third taken from their upcoming sophomore album, Penance, out 15th October via Unique Leader Records.

Shot by Gaz Davies and showcasing the band’s bleak vision, watch the video to ‘Beyond The Mire’ here:

‘Beyond The Mire’ represents a recurring nightmare that becomes harder and harder to distinguish from reality. The song’s lyrics explore the possibility that a nightmare could haunt you in your waking state, not just when you are asleep.

Guitarist Ben Sutherland comments: “The line between conscious and unconscious is something that is a great thing to explore in dark and heavy music. In this track we tread the tracks between thoughts that plague us in our waking hours, and how they manifest in our nightmares. The lyric ‘save me from insanity, is this my reality’ represents this troubling duality.”

Since their formation in 2016, UK quintet Bound In Fear have been creating uncompromisingly heavy music and in a short time have crafted a niche for themselves amongst the ungodly heavy. Their first release Regicide was received incredibly well by the underground scene, selling out of all pressings. The band spent the release cycle playing shows around the United Kingdom and mainland Europe. The accrued reputation the band gained resulted in a record deal with Unique Leader Records.

The next step in Bound In Fear’s catalogue of monstrously heavy music was the 2019 debut full-length The Hand Of Violence. The lyrical content took a very dark and personal route, while the compositions became more structured, intricate, and menacing. The release propelled Bound In Fear into a new echelon of the extreme music scene, seeing their streaming stats increase heavily and CD, vinyl and merch sales beating all expectations.

In early 2021, Bound In Fear followed up with the Eternal EP, a collection of five songs crafted with detailed soundscapes, a result of increased collaboration within a refreshed line-up, and a hunger for ever more extreme compositions, sounds, and tones. Eternal stands as a testament to the new direction of Bound In Fear, without leaving behind their previous works. 

With second album Penance looming, Bound In Fear are ready to show the extreme metal world that they are here to stay, and here to slay.
