Dying Fetus - _Grotesque Impalement_
(Blunt Force Records, 2000)
by: Aaron McKay (9 out of 10)
I feel nearly the same way about this almost 22 minute MCD as I did about Viking Crown's _Onorthodox Steps of Ritual_ [CoC #42] -- if you don't like this, you should stop reading my shit! Also, if you don't like this type of all-out, balls-to-the-wall death metal, you should re-examine yourself as a fan of the genre. I think these East Coast gentlemen have some of the best style in metal. I must confess that Dying Fetus's _Killing on Adrenaline_ [CoC #34], is -still- my favorite, but this is -solely- due to the fact that _Grotesque Impalement_ is an MCD. Otherwise, with the presentation of more, newer DF material, I would be forced to re-evaluate that decision. I'd argue, convincingly and to the best of my ability, that Dying Fetus possesses the epitome of a death metal vocal style. "Hail Mighty North / Forest Trolls of Satan (Anno Clitoris 666 Opus 11)" is a cut reminding you of the heaviest song Gang Green -wishes- they could have recorded! Killer, powerful and brutal work on _Grotesque Impalement_. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Again, guys, unquestionably heavy as a really fuckin' heavy thing.
