Dying Fetus’ 8th album, Wrong One to Fuck With sees the death metal band continue their smash-mouth, highly aggressive & in your face style. With a hardcore & rabid fanbase they’ve carved out a comfortable niche for themselves within the metal community even if their brand of death can hardly be called inspired stuff.
A thumping beat & furious riffing welcomes the listener to Wrong One to Fuck With. Low & dirty, Fixated on Devastation is a very strong opener thanks to the sense of urgency Dying Fetus seems to have.
That continues into Panic Amongst the Herd & Die with Integrity. It’s brutal & while it’s not the most exciting it is very listenable. It gets under the skin & you want to hear more.
A darker & moodier style rears its ugly head for Revealing in the Abyss, the longest track on the album. A song so full of sweat, blood & bile that you can almost smell it. It goes on for a bit too long though, getting a bit a rambling near the end.
Wrong One to Fuck With is 54 minutes worth of a constant, brutal & fiery assault. If you’re not a fan of this style of music you’re likely to start checking out around the middle. It can get a bit flabby in places but songs like Ideological Subjugation, Weaken the Structure & Unmitigated Detestation have some stunning guitar medleys that seem almost inhuman at the pace they are spat out.
The album is packed with serious quality, one of the better death metal releases this year.
