Actually, this band, My Heart to Fear, would be a lot cooler if it were Tom Cruise on the mic. But no, that’s just Trevor Pool of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. I know looks don’t make the music (just look at Helmet: awesome metal performed by college-looking kids), but can you deny that My Heart to Fear looks like a bunch of hipsters got together and said: “You know what would be ironic? If we put a metalcore band together and got a jock/Tom Cruse look-alike to sing for us.”
Unfortunately, the band also sounds as generic as they look, and the new/single “Blood Money” is the perfect example. It all sounds formulaic. And before you get all down on me to say, “yeah, but don’t you hear the experimentation in their sound? Don’t you hear how they’re adding to the genre?” Well, yes, I do, but even that sounds calculated. After watching this video for “Blood Money,” I feel as mindless as the churchgoers.
Check out the video and let us know what you think of the band in the comments section below. If I’m way off, tell me.

Solid State Records’ My Heart to Fear released the official video for “Blood Money,” the single off the band’s new EP, Lost Between Brilliance And Insanity. The EP is available everywhere online and physical copies can be purchased exclusively at Hot Topic stores.
Hailing from Williamsport, PA, My Heart to Fear comes from an area of Pennsylvania known for giving starts to acts such as August Burns Red, Texas In July, and This Or The Apocalypse. After releasing several EPs independently, My Heart to Fear caught the attention of Solid State Records who inked them to a deal.
“We want our fans to walk away from this EP asking what they can do to make this world a better place,” Pool says. “Whether that means showing love to those neglected by society or just doing a self-inventory of a sort. We are all a part of a problem or solution and it is imperative that we discover which side we find ourselves on.”
