In 1995, DYING FETUS self-released, promoted and distributed their first album, ‘Infatuation
With Malevolence.’ In support of the album, the band toured the Eastern U.S., including a
high-profile performance at the CMJ Music Convention at New York’s Lincoln Center. DYING
FETUS also represented death metal as a genre on a panel at the convention.
In 1996, DYING FETUS ‘ second album, Purification Through Violence was released
simultaneously in America on Pulverized Records and in Europe on Diehard Music Worldwide.
The band immediately embarked on their first full North American tour, hitting 25 cities with
Canada’s KATAKLYSM and Florida’s MONSTROSITY. The response to the band’s unreal live
show was astounding and the DYING FETUS name began to take residence in the minds of
metal heads everywhere.
1998 saw the release of DYING FETUS ‘ third album, Killing on Adrenaline on both Germany’s
Morbid Records and in the U.S. through the band’s own label, Blunt Force Records. DYING
FETUS embarked on unprecedented 52-date North American/European tour, hitting 12
countries in the process- from Denmark to Spain and Belgium to Poland. The band performed at
dozens of festivals, including co-headlining shows on the Morbid Metalfest, as well as the
Superbowl of Hardcore. During this time, DYING FETUS continued to make a name for
themselves, appearing in national and international magazines, placing tracks on dozens of
compilation CDs, and consistently doing radio and internet promotional activities. All on their
own accord.
In 1999, DYING FETUS reissued the out of print ‘Infatuation with Malevolence’ CD (their 93-94
demo collection) with extra tracks via their own label, Blunt Force Records. The new version
contained three live songs recorded on the 1998 European tour, as well as one demo track not
included on the previous edition of the disc.
Looking to expand their scope even further, DYING FETUS signed to Relapse Records in early
2000 and immediately hit the road for a U.S. tour with DESTRUCTION and KATAKLYSM. The
band re-issued their Grotesque Impalement EP, a collection of old material and covers before
completing work on their first Relapse album ‘Destroy The Opposition’. A musical mugging
aimed at corporate “rock,” ‘Destroy The Opposition’ was a brutal response to the everyday
stress and pressures of reality in today’s age, providing a natural outlet for the alienation and
frustration that such a pathetically consumer-oriented and greed-dominated society creates. The
record was an immediate success and the band hit the road, touring internationally in support of
the album for the next 16 months. In 2012, the album went on to receive Decibel Magazine’s
prestigious Hall of Fame honor.
After almost three years DYING FETUS returned with Stop At Nothing in 2003. Symbolically
representative of the greater alliance of anti-mainstream death metal/grindcore/hardcore-punk
scenes, DYING FETUS stand in direct opposition to what is considered “normal” in the
overwhelmingly conformist American musical arena. The band quickly hit the road in support of
Stop At Nothing completing numerous North American and European headlining tours as well
as delivering stand-out performances at international metal festivals.
Since then, DYING FETUS has been on a path toward supremacy, destroying everything in
their path while attracting more loyal followers with every step. 2007 saw the release of War of
Attrition, which found the band touring with CANNIBAL CORPSE and label-mates
NECROPHAGIST . This release was followed by Descend Into Depravity, the 2009 masterpiece
which led to numerous headlining tours in North America and abroad, including the band’s first
ever appearances in China and Southeast Asia.
On June 19th 2012, DYING FETUS took their biggest leap yet, with their earth-shattering album
Reign Supreme. Long-term fans rejoiced at the band’s consistency and critics lauded the band’s
unparalleled musicianship, with Heavymetal.about.com raving that “Dying Fetus are at the top of
their game with this record, which is sure to thrill old fans and gain them even more new ones.”
With Reign Supreme, arguably their heaviest release yet, it is clear why the band has been
hailed as “one of the most dominating forces in death metal,” and why they were booked to play
the UK’s infamous Download Festival almost purely on a fan campaign via Facebook and
Twitter. Anything less than total supremacy is simply not an option for this band.
Now in 2017, DYING FETUS once again raise the bar of sonic extremity with their 8th studio
album and first new material in over 5 years, Wrong One To Fuck With . The seasoned veterans
manage to further stretch their creative and technical boundaries across 10 complex tracks of
pulverizing death metal, filled with more dynamic intricacies, brutal breakdowns and varied vocal
patterns than ever before. Now over 25 years into their distinguished career, DYING FETUS
cement their legacy with Wrong One To Fuck With and uphold their position as the most
dominant force in death metal today.
