"Destroy the Opposition" is, simply put, one of the most intense assaults on my ears I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. It's one of the heaviest albums known to man, but then plenty of albums are heavy. What makes Dying Fetus stand out is the fact that they're methodical and intelligent about their heaviness. Technically, the band's onslaught is airtight. The drumming occasionally delivers the blast beats that are expected of any decent death/grind band, but there's also precision and variety to spare. The guitars, also, deliver a complexity and variety that easily matches that of bands like Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation. However, far from being a wankfest, "Destroy the Opposition" has more of a groove to it than the typical death metal album, and plenty of tempo changes to match. Vocally, John Gallager and Jason Netherton give the band a terrific two-vocalist approach, effectively balancing deep, throaty growls with more high-pitched screaming. Perhaps most impressively, the band delivers lyrics far more intelligent and meaningful than the death-and-Satan drivel peddled by bands like Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel (I mean, I like those bands, but some smarter lyrics would be nice). Dying Fetus intelligently address the ills of modern-day society, discussing such issues as religious zealotry, commercialism, the pressure to conform, and the shortcomings of America's democracy. Death metal bands like Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Vader, and Nile may get more attention, but Dying Fetus can hang with any of them.

Dying Fetus is one of the tightest goregrind/death metal bands out there. Their latest album, "Destroy the Opposition," completely blew me away. Compared most easily to old Cannibal Corpse, and Suffocation (especially the deep, gurgley vocals), these guys bring a new style of death metal with crushing guitars and double-pedal drums at back-breaking speed that makes it very heavy but offers diversity.
The dual vocals of John Gallagher and Jason Netherton add a dimension to the music that's been missing for awhile. The lyrics are intelligent and deals with the problems of society that catches the listener's interest.
Dying Fetus has taken two styles of music and made it their own. If you haven't gotten it yet, shame on you!

Dying Fetus show us why they are the leaders of death metal with there newest and debut release on Relapse. This release seems to go more into the older style prevalent on Infatuation With Malevolence and Purification of Violence (but then again I don't have Killing On Adrenaline to do a direct comparison). The production is great and the dual vocals are once again a treat. The addition of Sparky Voyles adds even more technical greatness to this band. All you have to do is listen to Pissing In The Mainstream to hear that. The solos are great and the tone of the drums is one of the best I've heard. Definetely one of their best releases and a definite buy as soon as you see this.

Yeah, I know, lack of a better title, but better than giving some Rolling Stone like title (you know, fruity).

This band rules, and this is the second catchiest death metal album (first still goes to Effigy Of The Forgotten). This band also is the only band that sounds like nothing else. Here's why:

1.Groove. Death metal has to have some of this, other wise, it sounds like complete _____. That's why I hate most metalcore. BEcause it's boring, uses the same damn beats. Most metalcore blows.

Some albums don't have as much, but all metal albums have to have at least a little bit. If it dosen't, it has a much harder time of being something that you can'enjoy for the actual music (okay, there are a few albums that got away with not alot and kick ___, like Obscura).

2.They have a really kick arse style. Grindcore mixed with regular death metal, and it dosen't sound like a Beck song.

3. Lyrics. Yeah, these guys have a name that most lame- half arsed Cannibal Corpse rip-offs, and they had two albums before this that used gore lyrics. But finally, they switched to political and social problems of America. Great to see that some bands aren't trying to make more gore lyrics. CC and others will handle that just fine. So if you want to try a metal band, focus on lyrics that take more thought, or haven't been used. Even if they are about death, you can't use different kinds of death themes (Nile)

That's the main thigns that made a difference to me. And it's awesome to headbang to. If you like death metal, than you should check it out. My only complaint are the vocals, they kind of aren't as good as Suffocation or Cryptopsy (Lord Worm rules).

This band is like Deicide and Death mixed together with a touch of grind. They are like Cryptopsy: they are brutal and technical at the same time. This CD has brawns and brains. John Gallagher's low death barks can suddenly change to high pitched screams, and his intelligent songwriting is accompanied by his complex riffs. Sparky Voyle's riffs and solos will blow you away. Jason Netherton's basslines aren't that audiable, but they make the songs darker, along with his background vocals. Kevin Talley's drumming is amazing. Songs like "Born in Sodom" and "For Us or Against Us" show off their style, while "Pissing in the Mainstream" shows off their grind influences with weird guitarwork. This is a great death metal band that pleases both styles.
