Singled Out: Phear's Dirty Work


Power metal band Phear just released their brand new EP "The Curse Lives On" and to celebrate we asked guitarist Tyson Emanuel to tell us about the song "Dirty Work". Here is the story:

This track was one of the last tunes written and exercises a little creative freedom; a departure from the standard PHEAR sound where guitars are being 'pushed'. This one has more openness; 'air'. It was not premeditated however; there was a natural inclination to simply break free from the well-oiled machine.

It allowed the band to 'sing'; allowing vocal harmonies to take center-stage. The end result, sounding more akin to an Alice In Chains vibe despite its main riff being inspired by King's X. Most of our tracks utilize 7-string guitars and this one is no exception. The difference is that due to the hard-rock approach when the extended range is utilized it sounds extra dark and heavy.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
