The days of categorizing music by decades are long gone, largely due to technology. We are no longer confined to discovering music through commercial radio or MTV, where playlists are extremely limited. Nowadays, it is fairly easy to listen solely to the genres of music that appeal to us, which is why Farewell 2 Fear’s “Diamonds” sounded like a cool new song when I first heard it on SiriusXM’s Octane. I didn’t discover that it was a cover version of a Rhianna song until the deejay mentioned it when the song ended.
Truth be told, F2F’s version of “Diamonds” is a good song with an Incubus vibe to it, but it is not indicative of how hard this band rocks on their original tunes. A more accurate portrayal of the band can be found on “Fire” – a song very much in line with today’s hard rock music. But the band deserves a lot of credit for coming up with a unique version of a cover song to stand out amongst the crowd of fellow hard rock acts.
According to their bio, “Farewell 2 Fear was born out of the huge black hole that mainstream rock radio left during the absence of super rock stars.” Their music is about “big rock riffs, big choruses and big anthems for a new generation of mainstream rockers.” The band was formed “to create music with a message about empowerment and endless possibilities.”
The name of the band goes hand-in-hand with their positive lyrics…
“Fear impedes all areas of our lives. The day you say ‘Farewell 2 Fear’ is the day you realize that you are free from any obstacle holding you back from living the life you were meant to live.”
The existence of Hard Rock Daddy is living proof that saying “Farewell 2 Fear” will put you on the path that you were meant to travel.
