Band I’ve Never Heard Of Signs With Solid State Records

My Heart To Fear

OK, so it means nothing that I have never, ever before now heard of Solid State’s latest roster addition, My Heart To Fear. Nothing at all.

So why did I put it in the headline? I’m a dick.

The Pennsylvania metal act just inked the contract, and are already wasting no time in announcing the November 20 release of their debut EP, Lost Between Brilliance and Insanity.

A press release claims the EP follows up “several DIY releases that showcased the band’s penchant for technical riffs, swaggering vocals and sky-high choruses, elements that helped them build the fervent fanbase that supports them today.”

I love that word…penchant. It’s totally overused, but ear delicious.

“When we write music we don’t stick to any one formula,” explains vocalist Trevor Pool. “We don’t write to please a certain group of people or to fit into specific genres. Nor do we sit down with a preconceived idea of what a song should or should not sound like. Instead we allow the music itself to reveal subconscious and spiritual paths. Rather than deriving inspiration solely from music, we find influence in the world around us and aim to transpose these non-musical entities into the musical aspects of a song.”

OK dude. That’s cool. It sounds like something someone dumb would say, but that’s cool.

    So did you bother listening to any of their music, or are you just trying to steal search engine hits?
