Dying Fetus War Of Attrition

Dying Fetus War Of Attrition
Dying Fetus have managed to avoid changing their sound even once over the course of their ten-year existence, although the quality of their albums vary somewhat. Let it then be said that War of Attrition is by far their strongest offering since Killing On Adrenaline and what it lacks in catchiness, compared with that release, it makes up for in sheer production heft and technical clout. A common direction for extreme metal bands these days is to write more fluid, condensed songs, and Dying Fetus have stepped up to the plate with their most focused, relentless release in years. There is literally not a second where the listener is left unpunished. The recording is uncharacteristically full (especially when compared to 2003’s Stop At Nothing) and loud as a motherfucker — this release on headphones is a real brain-rattler. The reduction of the band’s line-up back to a four-piece hasn’t impacted the sound whatsoever, as the trademarked dual vocals and punishing grooves remain intact, and if anything, the group sound tighter and better off for it. With a Dying Fetus record, you know what you’re getting. Expect nothing less than maniacal, unstoppable aggression and the benchmark for brutality in 2007. (Relapse)
