For the longest time Dying Fetus has been cranking out some of the most brutal metal around and listening to “Reign Supreme” it’s obvious that they’re not about to completely sever the umbilical cord just yet.
“Invert The Idols” is an opener that not so much kicks down the door, it kicks down the door and then rapes, maims and kills everyone inside and then sets fire to the house. With a mix of death, grind, thrash and jazzy parts, these guys pull everything through the meat grinder and come out with a concoction that’s not pretty to look at.
I like the groove they’ve got going on in their songs and musically things are as tight as they can be, but I’ve never been a fan of cookie monster vocals. And there’s loads of those. I just can’t take anyone serious who sounds like a muppet… so while “Reign Supreme” is a quality death metal release, it’s not one for me.
