iTunes Review

Dying Fetus’ seventh album pushes the boundaries of death metal into the red. Guitarist/frontman John Gallagher (the Upper Marlboro, Md., trio’s only original member) says that 2012’s Reign Supreme is a return to form, with an updated emphasis on guitar work and production. The opening cut, “Invert the Idols,” exemplifies this claim with a sudden onslaught of hypermathematical six-string leads that sound more machine than human. But once the riffs start blasting and Gallagher’s “singing” erupts like a belching volcano, the song recalls much of 1998’s Killing on Adrenaline, save for a crisper and more upfront mix. In the following “Subjected to a Beating,” Gallagher’s voice enters a previously uncharted range that’s further explored in “From Womb to Waste,” where it almost sounds like he's layering a track of throat-singing inflections over his guttural growls. Where many bands of this ilk tend to sound homogenized, Dying Fetus injects varying nuances and styles to keep things more interesting. On “In the Trenches,” he does this by slightly slowing the speed-metal tempos into gooey sludge.

Expect anything else from this band other ultra brutality. Expect nothing less. HAIL TO ALL THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF METAL!!!! TWO HORNS TO ALL.

best death metal album i've heard in many years

You listen to the first track, and you say to yourself, well they just played what has to be the best track right at the beginning, then the next track just crushes. The whole album is this way. It's astonishing how these guys came up with so many great musical ideas in what many people think is the narrow, constricted niche of death metal. For whatever reason, this is the most listenable DM record I've heard, it's got great riffs, and the lead singer's growl is insanely good, it's got a groove to it, I guess that's one way to put it.


Very brutal album by a very brutal band, the album is slow where it needs to be and fast where it needs to be. Possibly my fav straight up death metal of all time


Formed: 1991 in Maryland

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Though forever doomed, commercially speaking, by their controversial name, Maryland's Dying Fetus has endured beyond most observers' wildest expectations, and to do so, they've weathered a slew of hardships that would have felled (and did fell) most other bands. Formed in the waning days of death metal's glorious heyday (1991, to be exact) by John Gallagher (guitar/vocals), Nick Speleos (guitar), Brian Latta (guitar), Jason Netherton (bass), and Kevin Talley (drums), Dying Fetus combined their...
