Dying Fetus resign to Relapse Records; European tour dates announced

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 13th June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Death metal powerhouse Dying Fetus have announced their re-signing to Relapse Records. Following the release of their latest, critically acclaimed album Reign Supreme in last year on Relapse Records, Dying Fetus have re-signed to the label and commented:

We have an addiction and have relapsed with Relapse Records. Relapse Records will remain your one stop shop for all things Dying Fetus . Re-signing with Relapse Records seemed like the right thing to do for the band as both Dying Fetus and Relapse Records have grown over the years. So our fans can look forward to more brutality from both parties.

The band will return to tour Europe this summer, starting on July 24th and will be performing at Bloodstock Festival at Catton Hall, Derby on 11th August before heading to London to play an intimate show at The Barfly in London the following day. A complete list of European tour dates can be found below.

Tickets for the London show are available HERE and HERE. Reign Supreme is streaming in its entirety on the Dying Fetus Bandcamp page, which can be found here.

Dying Fetus – Reign Supreme

“It’s not my fault I’m pregnant and I love drugs.  Who cares? Fuck the baby, let it die”


Controversial and talented in equal measures, the  Maryland trio Dying Fetus have returned with their seventh album. Reign Supreme – a bold statement, but an honest one.

Perennial underdogs since their inception 22 years ago, Dying Fetus have grown a dedicated fan base through extensive touring, hard work, and blistering live performances.  Followers both new and old will relish this latest album, with 9 tracks (plus the obligatory ‘novelty’ bonus track – ‘Dead Whores Love To Fuck’,) of brutal, high intensity death metal.

If it looks like the Fetus, and sounds like the Fetus…it’s gotta be the Fetus!  Their signature songwriting style is present from the start – John Gallagher and Sean Beasley’s fret melting runs and sweeps, abruptly collapsing into heavy grooves and brutal slam breakdowns.  The musicianship is as uncompromising and technical as ever, complimented by the crisp production; making Reign Supreme the most professional sounding album in the band’s catalogue.

This is the second album with Trey Williams on drums, and his incredible ability shines throughout.  It is hard to define the impact his warp speed grinding battery has, but after so many lineup changes, the current three-piece is quite possibly the best (in terms of sheer musicianship,) to date.

The shorter songs such as opener “Invert the Idols”  and highlight “Dissidence” standout, their tight structures providing unrelenting aggression and technicality.  The midpoint provides a mild respite with two  ‘old school’, groove oriented songs.  It is certain that every track on Reign Supreme has been designed for live performance first of all.  Breakdowns (not of the -core variety!) feature regularly, and even on first play through you can actually see the pits forming for these future classics.

Dying Fetus walk the tightrope of new school tech and old school groove ethics perfectly, they craft brutal, sexy music, and with this album have firmly cemented their position at the highest echelon of modern death metal.

5/5
