Fearscape are a Progressive black Metal styled band originally from the industrial city of Wollongong, NSW (though now operating between Melbourne and Wollongong). The band's influences include Opeth, Enslaved, My Dying Bride and Coroner. This has led to an intense atmospheric sound that blends Black metal elements with Thrash and Doom styles of Metal.
The 2007 release "Scent of Divine Blood" saw Fearscape move into a more progressive black metal sound. It was recorded at Origami Studios in Sydney, owned by Aria award winner Anton Hagop (Silverchair, Powderfinger) and engineered by Daniel Leffler (Metallica, Fear Factory). 2007 also saw Fearscape support Arcturus on the Shipwrecked in Oz tour alongside Astriaal.
This album is receiving excellent reviews worldwide, and is available from The band's website.
As of 2009 Fearscape signed to US Label, Bombworks Records. A re-release of Scent of Divine Blood was planned for mid-2009, which was to include new artwork, live footage and a brand new track entitled Nightmare Hymn, featuring guest drummer Jayson Sherlock. It is believed that the band has since parted company with Bombworks and is writing new material.
Fearscape's debut CD entitled Sleeping in Light was recorded in Melbourne in mid-2004 via Rowe productions and Steve Rowe of Mortification. The CD is available around the world, but directly from the band through www.undark.net/store, and has been receiving very solid reviews despite is raw production
