Never really listened to Dying Fetus, despite their veteran status? Here’s your ultimate guide…
IN THE TRENCHES (REIGN SUPREME, 2012)
An irresistible slab of hardcore-tinged brutality, it sounds like Hatebreed possessed by Satan and plugged into the National Grid. If this doesn’t make you bang your head, you don’t have a head.
DESTROY THE OPPOSITION (RELAPSE, 2000)
Hugely influential and groundbreaking, the third Dying Fetus album emerged at the dawn of the 21st century and gave death metal a massive kick up the arse. Pit-inciting grooves, excoriating blastbeats, monstrous breakdowns… oof!
PANIC AMONGST THE HERD (2017)
Against the odds, cult video maker Mount Emult’s eye-frazzling animated collage makes this highlight from the band’s new Wrong One To Fuck With album even more intense and bewildering. Extreme tune, extreme visuals, total brain-fuck.
Death metal was never supposed to be cuddly. Inspired by vicious fan favourite Subjected To A Beating, this shirt echoes that scene in American History X and is guaranteed to upset your grandma. Job done.
The #whynotdyingfetus campaign began as a piss-take but people power ensured that the band opened the main stage at Donington in 2014. Win.
