Fearwell - A symphonic, melodic death metal band from Leiden, The Netherlands, formed in 2020.
Dive down the Well of Fear at an event or stage near! Experience a night you’ll never forget, one that’ll make you say “Fearwell” instead of “farewell”. An hour long apocalypse with comets of songs and asteroids of riffs, maniacal machine gun drums, volcanic eruptions of bombastic bass, virtuoso vocals and jolts of epic orchestras and an intimidating band mascot that’ll keep his eyes on you. Fearwell is a lot of things. Fearwell is catchy, Fearwell is virtuoso, Fearwell is show, Fearwell is astonishing, Fearwell is Fearwell.
Fearwell is made up of professional musicians that have shared a stage with Ex-Iron Maiden’s Blaze Bayley multiple times, Destruction, Kensington, Diesel, The Dead Daisies, Bliksem, Carach Angren and Vicious Rumors and have played in Musikmesse Frankfurt, Melkweg, Silverdome and Evenemententerrein Sallandse Poort, Raalte and many, many more noteworthy stages and events.

Reviewed by Glenn Fricker on his live mix review.
“You can basically hear what Fearwell is all about – passages of tension bordering on the grandiose, flecks of cutting speed metal ... nodding occasionally to Yngwie Malmsteen while flirting with, say, Children Of Bodom and also the more classically trained metal experimentalists.”
"I found the music catchy, energetic, with a heavy complex riveting classic power metal/thrash edge coupled with a fist pumping bounce. I found the songs to be diverse with lots of character and spirit within the musical structures, the musicianship is thrilling and adrenaline packed throughout the album. I think the that the compositions sound great and you have made a cool diverse album that I think our readers would enjoy. Good solid vibe, great production, excellent performances, and you can feel the vibrant energy through the speakers.
I enjoyed the whole album."

“Relying heavily on complex songwriting and musicianship to really sell their sound along with the dual vocal attack of Jeremy's clean singing and Johan's grunts... all while being as badass and epic as you could ask for. A solid, individual debut from a band worth watching.”
