Death metal overlords DYING FETUS will return with a new album, "Make Them Beg For Death", on September 8 via Relapse Records.
The official music video for the LP's latest single, "Feast Of Ashes", directed by Blvckbox Studios, can be seen below.
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. The veteran death metal band;s ninth album is fast, intense, and brimming with unstoppable grooves.
"Make Them Beg For Death" delivers 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 define their 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 the men of 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."
