Fear The Universe
March 2009
Released: 2009, Rusty Cage Records
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Bruce Sanchez

Rusty Cage Records has signed reactivated Dutch metallers Martyr. FEAR THE UNIVERSE is a double album package featuring a new EP called FEAR, and a re-mastered version of the classic FOR THE UNIVERSE.

FEAR and FOR THE UNIVERSE are two very different albums. They were written more than 20 years apart, after all. But it shows that Martyr isn’t just another reunion band trying cash in on past glory. They’ve grown as musicians and want to produce quality, modern music. And FEAR is most definitely that. It focuses more on heavy riffs, and hooks than on pure speed. They’ve completely abandoned the reverb heavy everything for a more grounded sounded. The new songs are more accessible to the average listener and embrace a more “rock” element, while still being traditionally metal.

I’m not quite sure which the bonus in this package is; the re-mastered edition of FOR THE UNIVERSE or the five new songs which is FEAR. Either way, it’s definitely worth picking up if you’re a collector.
