Spiritbox has to be one of the most promising acts in metal. On their latest, The Fear of Fear, the band delivers an absolutely blistering collection of songs that's steeped in both the darkness of modern life and the hope for a better world. The vocals are aggressive and brutal...and also haunting. The ferocity of the music combined with the sometimes distressingly beautiful voice of singer Courtney LaPlante makes for a powerful listen. Intense, propulsive, and unforgettable, this one will lodge in your heart as well as in your overblown eardrums.
