"It is a rarity these days to find this sort of gem let alone find the talent to be able to create and convey this passion. Fear Report's music is honest, straightforward, emotional, and most importantly, it totally rocks! The album Pandemic hits home in so many ways it's hard to nail down just one. They take on the struggles of life spinning out of control in the song "Viral," to showing their support to the troops in the fitting song "The Front Line." "Rear View Mind" touches on not being able to move forward if you're always looking back. My favorite song on the album is "Paper Wings and a Handgun," a very emotional song questioning one's existence and wondering if what you've done up to that point was good enough... Fear Report are here to prove to the world that you can write about real life and still be a kick ass rock band. They have amazing guitars, rock solid rhythms and a vocalist who is not afraid to wear his emotions for everyone to see... I would recommend Fear Report to everyone and then I would have everyone buy Pandemic and take this musical journey with them as they are set and primed to take over the world."
-IndieMusicReviewer

"Spitting and snarling their way out of New York, Fear Report could just be about to save the world of rock 'n' roll. Delivering a powerful punch of twin guitars, thunderous basslines and frontman Dan O'Berry's raw, whiskey-soaked vocals, second track 'Bloodrust' is the highlight here. A heavy slice of alt-rock that sounds like it's come straight out of Quicksand's back catalogue, hopefully this isn't the last we hear of these boys."
-Rock Sound Magazine, Issue 132, Page 29

"The band... nail it with the last song on the album, "Paper Wings and a Handgun."
-Powerplay Magazine, Issue 142, Page 60

"I can say for a change, I listened to rock and came out feeling better for it."
-IndieBandsBlog

"Two things are key here, maybe a third. One is the immense rhythm section which is both precise and relentless. Second is the guitar work; Fear Report could steal a page from many current modern acts and simply offer massive riffage in chord arrangements. But not this clan. There's some hearty and hefty guitar solos here. The third might be the depth of the song arrangements. While the songs are cast in a heavy motif, there's adequate creativity, melody, hook, and variation to make the songs both intriguing and entertaining."
-Dangerdog Music Reviews

"What I love most about this band is that they come across like a damn good group of real dudes. This stuff comes from the heart. It's real. It's dark and painful at times, positive and inspirational at times, and pretty much runs the gamut across human emotional experience (you know, like real life)... this record just flat out rocks."

Track Name: Mariana Trench
Don't ask about the future,
or dig into my past
The present is a suture,
don't know if it will last

Don't bring me down
I'm already down
Don't bring me down
I'm already down

Am I supposed be here?
I feel my time has passed
So peel away the veneer,
it wasn't meant to last

Don't bring me down
I'm already down
Don't bring me down
I'm already, I'm already down
I'm already down
I'm already down
I'm already down
Don't bring me down
I'm already down
I'm already down
I'm already down!

Don't bring me down
I'm already down
Don't bring me down
I'm already... I'm already down
Down
Track Name: The Chair
Cool kids of today, hot tempered
Manifestos of borrowed word
With killers being idolized,
our worst fears will be realized

The end is near, and we are
just sittin' here, waitin' for...
you to pull the switch
The end is here

Violence sensationalized
Our worst fears will be realized

The end is near, and we are
just sittin' here, waitin' for...
you to pull the switch
The end is here

And we fry… and we fry

(rambling)

I'm sittin' here waitin' for the end

The end is near, and we are
just sittin' here, waitin' for...
you to pull the switch
The end is here
The end is near, and we are
just sittin' here, waitin' for...
you to pull the switch
The end is here
Track Name: Wasting
While away and rest your bones
Bleedin' darker undertones
When the fatal flower blooms,
fear of knowin' looms...
fear of knowin' looms

Wastin' the day away
Wastin' away
Winter mood summer day
Wastin' away

Open wounds that never heal
What is fake and what is real?
When the fatal flower blooms,
fear of knowin' looms...
fear of knowin' looms

Wastin' the day away
Wastin' away
Winter mood summer day
Wastin' away

Fatal flower blooms
Fear of knowin' looms
When the day resumes
Our remains in tombs

Wastin' the day away
Wastin' away
Winter mood summer day
Wastin' away
Wastin' away
Wastin' away
Track Name: 5 Dirty Cents
You want to tell us how to live,
and how much to give
As you sit upon your golden throne,
you'll be all alone

The only truth is that you lied,
took us for a ride
As you sit upon your burnin' throne,
you'll die all alone

Sick of all your opinions
Sell them to all your minions
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless
Half-truths and half a conscience
Not worth my five dirty cents
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless

Sick of all your opinions
Sell them to all your minions
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless
Half-truths and half a conscience
Not worth my five dirty cents
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless

Sick of all your opinions
Sell them to all your minions
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless
Half-truths and half a conscience
Not worth my five dirty cents
I'm not buyin' your lies you're
shameless, shameless
Track Name: Viral
Spreading a new disease
One that knows no boundaries
Abort the connection
Only way to kill this one

My life is in a downward spiral
My life has gone completely viral

Stick me with a needle
And push until my vein is full
Pull the intravenous
Hooked up to what's killing us

My life is in a downward spiral
My life has gone completely viral
My life is in a downward spiral
My life has gone completely viral

My life has gone completely viral

My life is in a downward spiral
My life has gone completely viral
My life is in a downward spiral
My life has gone completely viral
Track Name: The Front Line
Is there a silver lining to war,
or a black eye from what we're fighting for?
Either way the troops need our support

Thank you for layin' your life on the line
In peace or war we're on your side

Is there a scar for every wound?
No man left behind, never marooned

Thank you for layin' your life on the line
In peace or war we're on your side
Thank you for layin'… on the line
In peace or war we're on your side

And to the fallen... never forgotten

Thank you for layin' your life on the line
In peace or war we're on your side
Thank you for layin'… on the line
In peace or war we're on your side
Track Name: Still Standing
Future is dead
Can't get ahead
Resign command
'Cause I'll be standin'...

In your way
In your way
In your way
In your way

Chained to the past
Dead weight amassed
Not what you planned
'Cause I'm still standin'...

In your way
In your way
In your way
In your way

I'm still standin' in your way

Still standin' in your way
Still standin' in your way

Still standin' in your way
Still standin' in your way
Track Name: Bloodrust
Eyes rusted shut, but I can see...
the darker days ahead
As night falls the shadows spread

When will this end?
I can't pretend any more… any more

My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins

Eyes rusted shut, but I can see...
the dark depths of my soul
Help me climb out of this hole

When will this end?
I can't pretend any more… any more

My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins

My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins

My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin' in my veins
My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins

My blood is rustin', my blood is rustin'
My blood is rustin' in my veins
Track Name: Rear View Mind
Fallin' forward into time
Don't look backward as you climb
Fallin', fallin' into time

How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain?

Callin' your name, no reply
Don't look backward, say goodbye

How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain?

How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain? It's all in vain
How can we expect to move forward,
when we're always lookin' back toward,
the past, the pain?
Track Name: Sleeper Cell
Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants

Where do I begin?
The enemy within
A hostage in my own skin

A sleeper cell
Till they rebel

Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants
Inner fight no match for their defiance

Where do they reside?
The enemy's inside
Deep beneath the skin they hide

A sleeper cell
Till they rebel

Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants
Inner fight no match for their defiance
Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants

Go

Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants
Inner fight no match for their defiance
Tread lightly don't waken sleepin' giants
Sleepin' giants
Track Name: Repo Man
We are all just visitin'
Renters in our skin for the time bein'
And when our time is up here,
we shall persevere

But I'm feelin'
like the repo man
has repossessed my soul

We are all just visitors
And I don't know exactly when it occurs
But when our time is up here,
we shall persevere

But I'm feelin'
like the repo man
has repossessed my soul

And I'm feelin'
like the repo man
has repossessed my soul
And I'm feelin'
like the repo man
has repossessed my soul
Track Name: Season of Lies
Dissect your life
Cut with a knife
What lies beneath?
Tell me I can't
That's when I plant
seeds of deceit

I wanna fly
At least I'll try
And if I fall
I'll just tell a lie

Dig your own grave
Exhume to save
what lies beneath
Tell me I won't
That's when I sow
seeds of deceit

I wanna fly
At least I'll try
And if I fall
I'll just tell a lie
I wanna fly
At least I'll try
And if I fall
I'll just tell a lie

I wanna fly
At least I'll try
And if I fall
I'll just tell a lie
I wanna fly
At least I'll try
And if I fall
I'll just tell a lie
Track Name: Paper Wings and a Handgun
Been flyin' too close to the sun,
with paper wings and a handgun

My life flashes before my eyes
From ashes... to ashes

Here comes the wave to wash our sins away
Into the grave we make our way

Been to the breaking point and back
This time you'd better dress in black

My life flashes before my eyes
From ashes... to ashes

Here comes the wave to wash our sins away
Into the grave we make our way

Here comes the wave to wash our sins away
Into the grave we make our way
Here comes the wave to wash our sins away
Into the grave we make our way
