Today we got an e-mail from one of the members of Scare Don’t Fear (Worst band name ever?), who promised that the band “are a Metal/Hip Hop group like no other” who “have been often called ‘The Next Chapter of Rap/Rock.’” So I knew pretty much right away that I was not going to like this band. But I can’t resist a good laugh, and nothing seems funnier than the idea of band still trying to make rap metal cool in 2011, so I decided to check out the band.

Now, there’s been some debate around here as to which terrible band claims the title of “The New Limp Bizkit.” Sergeant D. has suggested that it’s Emmure, and I’ve suggested it’s Winds of Plague. But I think we’re both wrong — it’s probably Scare Don’t Fear. This band combines horrible rapping with the worst kind of nu-metal-disguised-as-death-metal riffs. There is nothing redeeming about this.

And that’s the better of two songs they sent us — the other one, which is basically a straight-up hip-hop track with very few metal elements, is even more unbearable.

Man, I would have loved to have been a fly in the room when these dudes were like “Yeah, ‘I’m a monster, I’m a m-m-m-monster’ is a cool idea!”

Now, normally, I’d dismiss this band as, y’know, just some terrible act that will sooner disappear and never be heard from again. But unfortunately for all of us, they’re represented by Outerloop Management, who are really good at their jobs — I mean, just check out their current roster.

What I’m saying is, no one should be surprised if Scare Don’t Fear are huge in a year.

What I’m saying is, let’s all hope the prophecies about 2012 are true.
