There are a ton of bands working within the stylistic parameters of crossover thrash these days, but few possess the songwriting smarts and technical proficiency of Rhythm of Fear. The Jacksonville, FL-based quintet have been doing their thing for a few years now, not only releasing killer music, but also hitting the road with purpose. That blue-collar mentality has served Rhythm of Fear well and it feels like 2019 might be big for the guys, deservingly so.

In addition to their current and upcoming tour dates, the crossover specialists will be releasing a new EP called Ritual Dementia and No Echo got its hands on "Slithering Madness," a track from the collection:

“The song is loosely based off of the horrendous killings done by James Cushing, aka as the Queen Anne killer," says the band in a statement to No Echo. "He was notorious for his cold-blooded reign of terror in 1990. Of course, we, as a band, do not glorify murderers. We are simply intrigued by erratic human behavior and psychological mental disorders that cause them to act out violently against innocent humans. We really encourage people to lock their doors at night.”
