Purification Through Violence
Dying Fetus is an American death metal band originally from Greater Upper Marlboro, Maryland, which formed in 1991. Various line-up changes throughout the years have left John Gallagher as the sole remaining original member, as well as the band's driving force. According to Gallagher, the band name was chosen while the members were young and was intended to be offensive. Purification through Violence is the debut studio album by American death metal band Dying Fetus, following Infatuation with Malevolence, a collection of early demos. It was released in 1996.
Stop at Nothing
Shortly after the release of Destroy the Opposition, all of the band except for John Gallagher quit. Gallagher brought in new vocalist Vince Matthews, guitarist Mike Kimball, bass guitarist Sean Beasley and drummer Eric Seyanga. The black and white part of the cover of the album is part of a photograph taken by Lewis Wickes Hine.
Reign Supreme is the seventh studio album by Dying Fetus. Commented Dying Fetus guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher: "The last album had some groove in it, but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older Fetus albums, so to speak — more modern production, though, of course. Everything's tight, the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing."
Killing on Adrenaline
War of Attrition
War of Attrition is the fifth album by Dying Fetus. According to the album booklet, the album's lyrics were written solely by guitarist Mike Kimball. This album was praised by original fans due to its return to traditional Dying Fetus form but was also criticized for its poor production in comparison to other releases. It was also their first self-produced album in nine years.
Wrong One to Fuck With
By mid-April 2017, both the band and Relapse Records had announced via social media the release of their eighth studio album, entitled Wrong One to Fuck With, which was released on June 23, 2017, and included a promotional video for Gallagher, Williams, Beasley, and Associates – Death Metal Attorneys at Law.
Descend Into Depravity
Descend into Depravity is the sixth studio album by American death metal band Dying Fetus. It was released in the United States on September 15, 2009, and worldwide on September 21, 2009. Only three band members appear on this album. With the dismissal of Duane Timlin in 2007, Trey Williams took his place as drummer. John Gallagher and Sean Beasley were left to write the lyrics and songs alone as Mike Kimball had also left.
Make Them Beg for Death
Dying Fetus finally returns after a six-year hiatus with their ninth album “Make Them Beg for Death” out on Relapse Records on September 8th, 2023. Led by the founder guitarist/vocalist John Callagher, bassist/vocalist Sean Beasley, and drummer Trey Williams, the ninth album cements the extreme brutality and technical prowess of the band.
