Death metal overlords, Dying Fetus, will release their new album, Wrong One To Fuck With, on June 23rd via Relapse Records on CD/2xLP/Digital.
Guitarist/lead vocalist John Gallagher recently checked in with Capital Chaos TV’s Iron Serbian to discuss the new album, death metal as a career, being carjacked and more, from and an undisclosed location deep in the heart of somewhere secret. A couple of excerpts follow:
On a career in death metal: I’m still buying the bread on sale at Safeway, like anybody else that's watching their budget and stuff like this, I'm not just blowing money hand over fist, you can live conservatively with death metal if you do it right.”
On choosing the title Wrong One To Fuck With and imagery on the new album: “There is no records stores now, we used to have the bold logo on the cd, so people could walk in and read and not just see a pile of sticks that was the idea of using a bold logo, and now there's no cd's in Walmart. The title and imagery we just said fuck it, I did want to push it a little further than what came out really, I wanted a really intense, kind of gory cover, like an old Cannibal Corpse theme, I was really pushing for it to be extreme but the label (Relapse Records) wasn't going for it.”
Dying Fetus once again raise the bar of sonic extremity with their eighth studio album and first new material in over five years, Wrong One To Fuck With. The seasoned veterans manage to further stretch their creative and technical boundaries across 10 complex tracks of pulverizing death metal, filled with more dynamic intricacies, brutal breakdowns and varied vocal patterns than ever before. Now over 25 years into their distinguished career, Dying Fetus cement their legacy with Wrong One To Fuck With and uphold their position as the most dominant force in death metal today.
