Bound In Fear stream single featuring Kevin Muller of Alluvial and The Merciless Concept
‘Scar of Man’ lyric video streaming now
Penance album is available 15th October via Unique Leader Records
UK deathcore quintet Bound In Fear have released new single ‘Scar of Man’, taken from their upcoming sophomore album, Penance, out 15th October via Unique Leader Records.
Featuring guest vocals from Kevin Muller of Alluvial and The Merciless Concept, watch the lyric video to ‘Scar of Man’ here: https://youtu.be/cAkWjDBo9vg
‘Scar of Man’ represents a different side of the album from lead single and title track ‘Penance’. While the lyrical approach is as visceral and aggressive as ever, it sits on a bed of a more complex arrangement than has been explored on previous releases.
The track’s brutality is complimented by an appearance from vocalist Kevin Muller, whose powerful guest spot highlights the theme of the lyrics – a calculated, yet still maniacal, eradication of the enemy.
Guitarists Steve Hunt and Ben Sutherland comment: “’Scar of Man’ is an experimental track for Bound In Fear, but highlights a new side to the band’s music that will be demonstrated on Penance – technical guitar parts fit comfortably with the downtempo and beatdown patterns that our fans will recognise.
“We look forward to hearing and seeing people’s reactions to the new aspects of our sound – not only on the record, but when we bring the new songs to stages across Europe and the UK in 2021 and 2022”.

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.
