Formed in 1991, Dying Fetus are an American Death Metal band from Marlboro, Maryland known for their consistent hook laden structures, characterized blast beats, slamming and complex riffs, heavy breakdowns and have lyrics discussing political/ modern themes notable in Death Metal today. Released on June 23rd, 2017 through Relapse Records Wrong One To Fuck With is the eighth full-length effort followed up to 2012’s Reign Supreme which my opinion was Dying Fetus’s most established, circumcised and intelligent albums the band has done in over 2 1/2 decades being a band. With the latest album Wrong One To Fuck With, the members from Dying Fetus came together to create a finest representation of Death Metal is the production, distinctive barrier sounds and exceeds flawlessly of unquestionable brutality and unrelenting assaults on a sense never sounded so memorably catchy and Technical. They’ve returned to their roots while not overlying the technical compositions but it also balances infectious grooves, fantastic chemistry and deserves it’s highest praise possible. When you get heaviness such as Panic Amongst the Herd, Ideological Subjugation and Die With Integrity, this record remarkably combines surprising Melodic signatures and considered a highly violent lyrical album brought mind-bending, Grindcore influenced Leads and professionalism throughout entirety of the album that manages to execute excellently while the mixing could definitely use lots more treble making it sharper, clearer and naturalistic.
They’ve self-contained a back on attacking formidable line-up and uses Death Metal a certainly celebration pummeling over-the-top brutality keeps fans and Death Metal a welcoming, technically blood boiling and demented whiplash frenetic songs perfectly summarizes same-old Dying Fetus we’ve come to know and appreciate. Overall, Dying Fetus still regained and captured monstrous brutality over 26 years being together as a artist combining many differential elements of Death Metal and Grindcore/ Brutal Death Metal interpretations into a stylistic branch for the Death Metal department. If you enjoyed Reign Supreme do not let the title name fooled you because this is a call upon arms for Dying Fetus creating ambitious music to date.
Overall score: 8.0/10
