Sometimes, there are bands that show up and with only a couple of riffs and vocal lines, and you already know that you’re dealing with a band that knows what they are doing. This is exactly the case with Follow No One and their latest single, Fear No Evil.
They gained a following after the release of their 2017 EP, 5. The band is the brainchild of Rich Hall and Pedro Murino Almeida. Follow No One is all about combining multiple Rock influences to make a very interesting and different take on the genre, with a very classic feel to it–the moment you hear the band, it feels unique and familiar at the same time.
We hear the opening riffs of Fear No Evil, and we know that we’re listening to a band that knows their way around the guitar, performing with skill and a lot of energy. In less than thirty seconds, the song already grabs you, and the vocal performance is quite compelling, with a lot of melodies, without stepping on the strong riffs.
There are various rhythm changes that make the song very dynamic in a short amount of time, and we also get a very catchy chorus, which is something that every great single needs.
The beginning of Your Time of Dying has a very strong influence of 70s Black Sabbath on the riffs, but the vocal melodies are more modern and flow in a somewhat slow pace, although I have to say that it works really well. This song is not as dynamic as Fear No Evil, but it is a solid rocker that is going to be very enjoyable for you and give you a great taste of modern Rock and Roll.
The guys at Follow No One know how to be technical and varied without losing the accessibility of their style, which I find quite effective and entertaining. Fear No Evil is a solid and fun single that is a great taste of one of the most promising bands in modern day Rock and Roll.
