REIGN SUPREME

Never re­ally lis­tened to Dy­ing Fe­tus, despite their vet­eran sta­tus? Here’s your ul­ti­mate guide…

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Dying Fetus -

THE AN­THEM

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.

THE AL­BUM

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!

THE VIDEO

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.

THE SHIRT

CURB STOMP

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 HASH­TAG

#WHYNOTDYINGFETUS (2013)

The #whynotdyingfetus cam­paign be­gan as a piss-take but peo­ple power en­sured that the band opened the main stage at Don­ing­ton in 2014. Win.
