Dying Fetus announce new record, Make Them Beg For Death, out on September 8th via Relapse Records
We’ve been waiting for this announcement for a while, but it’s finally here – the Baltimore death metal overlords Dying Fetus will unleash their ninth opus of extreme sonorities this year! Recorded in Baltimore with longtime producer Steve Wright and mixed by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse), Make Them Beg For Death contains every Dying Fetus hallmark – it’s fast, intense and brimming with unstoppable grooves, delivering savage beatdowns equally designed to pulverize and mesmerize. “It follows on from where Wrong One To Fuck With left off,” drummer Trey Williams promises. “We don’t need to participate in the technical death metal arms race. We’ve got the big guns, and we’ve proven that. It’s all about pointing them in the right direction, so to speak”.
Monstrous riffs, blast beats, unstoppable hooks and earth-moving grooves have eternally defined Dying Fetus’ catalog. “We put our own twist on Death Metal,” explains co-vocalist/guitarist John Gallagher. “We were like most bands, starting in the garage, drinking beer, having a little fun on the weekend, finding the right amps through trial and error. We blended aspects of bands we liked – Suffocation, Obituary, Deicide, and Cannibal Corpse, among others; the dual vocal approach of Carcass – and made them our own. ‘Let’s make it moshy, let’s make it slammy’”.To Dying Fetus, the mission is straightforward. “The philosophy is the same now as it was when the band started,” Gallagher confirms. “To write catchy riffs and to make it memorable. Whatever style of music you’re doing, make it something people want to hear repeatedly”. As taste of things to come, the band have unveiled a video for the first single, “Feast of Ashes”, which was directed by Blvackbox Studios – you can watch it below this article.
Make Them Beg For Death will be released on September 8th via Relapse Records. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
