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.

Customer Reviews

Hey Scott Moss...

Go review the new Beiber album and leave the metal to us actual metal lovers. I hate when people rate albums that they know nothing about. I love DYING FETUS and think that they are one of the best live bands I have ever seen. This new album is just further testament to the fact that they are light years ahead of almost everyone in this genre. The riffs are insanely catchy and the band itself is tight as any I have ever heard.. So Scott, go back to the pop section and stay away from here..

This album is sick.

I wouldn't even waste my time writing a review on an album unless it was totally legit. This album is brutal, fast, intense and is loaded with tracks that keep me wanting to listen to it more and more. This band is flat out one of the best death metal bands on the planet. I can't wait to go to battle at the gym as this album is crushing through my earphones.

Blown away!

I am literally blown away! Rarely am I impressed with a first listen of any album. Every single track is mind blowing (except the :50 second last song bonus track. It is garbage). The album is clean and tightly produced. Crazy transitions, riffs, blast beats, speed, tempo shifts. No kidding, the hairs on my arms raised a few times!


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...
