Dying Fetus – War Of Attrition

dyingfetus_032707_warFor those of you out there who, like myself, felt a bit let down by or disappointed with Dying Fetus’ last effort “Stop At Nothing” lay your fears of a repeat to rest. “Stop At Nothing” was not a bad album by any means, but it just never felt quite right to me for some reason. “War of Attrition” finds this long running band back at the top of their game. The two main improvements over the last album seem to come in the areas of production and backing vocals. Perhaps there is an improvement in the drumming as well, but that could be the result of the improved production. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Dying Fetus, they sound like a mix of Suffocation, Napalm Death and Hatebreed but with a sound all their own that has been slowly honed over the years. The bizarre little fret noodling that they do is impressive enough in itself, but making it work so well within material that is so overall intense and brutal is perhaps even more impressive. It is also a testament to how well they are able to craft their songs. I honestly don’t know why more people don’t take this band more seriously or give them the respect that they are surely due. Based on the cover songs that they have done in the past I would say that they are coming from the right place, making music for the right reasons and believe one hundred percent in what they are doing. Not to mention the fact that they are damn good at it. – Lance Rogers
