MMW: Dying Fetus

Dying Fetus is a Death Metal band from Maryland that started out around 1991 that acts as a sort of bridge from older classic sounding Death Metal of the 80s and newer technical Death Metal that incorporates elements of Hardcore. Their name is as brutal as their sound. After several demos and a debut album they hit their stride with 1998s Killing on Adrenaline. While not every album has been as memorable, 2003s “Stop At Nothing”, 2009s “Descend into Depravity”, and especially 2012s “Reign Supreme” are classic of the genre. As a live band this three piece is quite impressive as they are brutal.
