Dying Fetus – Make Them Beg for Death

If you had told me in 1994 that a band with the name Dying Fetus (DF) would eventually become one of the biggest names in death metal I would have told you to get your head examined…..but that is precisely what has occurred through the decades.  Dying Fetus returning with their ninth full-length album Make […]

Dying Fetus – Wrong One to Fuck With

2017 is turning into quite the year for veteran American  death metal acts; Suffocation, Immolation, Broken Hope and Origin have all released albums and later this year we even have Morbid Angel and Incantation releases. But elbowing their way through all of them is Dying Fetus and their eighth opus, and for lack of a better […]

Dying Fetus – Reign Supreme

So after a couple of line up juggling, transitional post Destroy the Opposition albums in Stop at Nothing and War of Attrition,  American stalwarts Dying Fetus trimmed down to a three piece for 2009s Descend into Depravity with impressive results. And now finally, John Gallagher has put together two album with the same line up […]

Dying Fetus Monday

Week number 11 starts with DYING FETUS as both Erik Thomas and Scott Alisoglu take a look at the Dying Fetus reissues released by Relapse Records (no surprise there). If you originally missed the albums, then it’s about time you read if you’ve missed out on something good…

Dying Fetus – Grotesque Impalement EP (Reissue)

The story of the Grotesque Impalement EP is an interesting one, as it was actually self-released (on the band’s own Blunt Force Records) in 1999 as a “holdover” album between Killing on Adrenaline and Destroy the Opposition. Relapse has now reissued the EP with a new package, a remastering job, liner notes from Jason Netherton, […]

Dying Fetus – Killing on Adrenaline (Reissue)

It wasn’t until 2000’s Destroy the Opposition that I discovered Dying Fetus, who were being touted as the heirs apparent to the then-on-hiatus Suffocation. Based on Destroy the Opposition and Killing on Adrenaline, which I picked  up shortly after hearing Destroy the Opposition, those claims were certainly founded at the time. But for those that […]

Dying Fetus – Purification Through Violence (Reissue)

It’s hard to believe this album was originally released in 1996 on Pulverizer Records. Fifteen years ago? Really? What’s so surprising is what an obvious influence Dying Fetus—and albums like Purification through Violence—has been on the brutal death end of the spectrum, particularly the sub-genre known as slam metal. Check out the first break into […]

Dying Fetus – Infatuation with Malevolence (Reissue)

Regarded as Dying Fetus‘s first ‘real’ release, though not their first album, Infatuation with Malevolence was originally released in 1995 on Wild Rags Records and it compiled two demos: 1993’s Bathe In Entrails and 1994’s Infatuation with Malevolence. Serving as an erstwhile precursor to the bands full-length debut album, 1996’s Purification Through Violence, Infatuation with […]

Dying Fetus – Descend into Depravity

A new Dying Fetus album isn’t quite the event is once was as since the bands crowning moment, 2000s Destroying the Opposition a revolving line up has kept John Gallagher from attainting perfect chemistry that was achieved with the classic Netherton, Voyles (who of course left after Destroy the Opposition to form Misery Index) and […]

Dying Fetus – War of Attrition

It’s ironic that one of the dictionary definition of the word ‘attrition’ is “A gradual, natural reduction in membership or personnel”, and though I’m sure John Gallagher and his cohorts surely meant the more militaristic definition of the word, the fact is, now back as a four piece and minus vocalist Vince Matthews, who I […]
