Since John Gallagher and Jason Netherton first formed the band during 'the popular days of Death Metal' in 1991, Dying Fetus have progressed, gained it's unique style and become one of the most acclaimed and popular Death Metal/Grindcore acts in the metal underground. The band's members combine technical brutality with catchy song structures which make each single track they have released so far innovative and memorable. After touring with bands such as The Berzerker, Hate Eternal, Gorguts, Skinless and other modern Death Metal acts and releasing five full-lenghts; Jason left the band while Sparky Voyles and Kevin Talley were asked to leave because of various internal conflicts. Everyone was obviously expecting Dying Fetus' imminent death, but it never happened. In 2003, Dying Fetus re-appeared with a new album, "Stop At Nothing", and a completely new line-up (only John Gallagher remained). Incredibly enough, even though basically a totally different band, all of the elements that made Dying Fetus such a great group were present in the new release and for someone that didn't know the facts, it would seem that nothing ever changed in the line-up.
Dying Fetus is a brutal death metal band formed in 1991 in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, United States. The line-up consists of John Gallagher (guitar, vocals), Sean Beasley (bass, vocals) and Trey Williams (drums). Dying Fetus' music is a hybrid of death metal and grindcore, characterized by extremely fast blast beats, complex riffing and slow breakdowns. Lyrically-wise, the band dabbled in the usual gory death metal subject matter on their early albums, and respectfully covered "Born In A Casket," a song originally written by famous death metal band Cannibal Corpse.
