DYING FETUS Sheds “Second Skin” For Their New Music Video


Death metal veterans Dying Fetus have hooked up with the gore loving freaks over at Bloodydisgusting.com to create a new video for the song “Second Skin” off their latest Relapse release, Reign Supreme. The theme from this NSFW video sort of reminds me of watching the band live and Saw and Jeepers Creepers all at the same time. Although this is the most visually brutal Dying Fetus video, it’s by far the most tame that Bloodydisgusting has produced.

It’s a great song but the video was a little boring. You can watch this slammin’ (i love using 90’s terminology) video after the jump – Continue reading

Best Of 2012: Eric’s Top 30 Releases Of The Year


Similar to the conflicted state of mind the character Jules Winnfield Of Pulp Fiction was in when he decided not to execute the characters of Honey Bunny and Ringo like “fucking fried chicken”, my American Aftermath writership came at a period in my life of transition, a time of both fleeting and returning tastes. In short, my idea of “music” was flipped upside down. What was once a streamlined process of music listening and discovery was overloaded and overridden by my previous months exploration into a multitude of realms and genres previously unexplored, most notable among that being my new found discovery of hardcore and the cascading effects of that discovery, which led to realms from sludge metal to pop punk.

The following thirty album list reflects the few difficultly chosen releases that stuck with me the most throughout both the bombarding ocean of releases this year and the aforementioned musical overturn. Before we actually begin, I’d like to thank the American Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane Oliver, and Josh Huddleston for allowing me to be a part of their team. I would also like to thank the musicians and bands that have created music for me to write about and those that have helped out in interviews and features. Last but not least I want to thank you, the readers, for giving a shit. See you all after the jump.

From The Trenches: A Load Of DYING FETUS News Erupts All Over Your Face

A lot of people have been anticipating Dying Fetus‘ new album Reign Supreme. I have been wondering about it myself, but I have never been a huge Dying Fetus fan. As I type this I am currently streaming the bands new album over at MetalSucks and it’s not bad at all. I have had this album lying around for some time now, but I haven’t gotten around to checking it out. So if you’re interested, the album is streaming over here and you can purchase the album right here.
Editors Note: Apparently Lane posted about this as I was typing it.

In other Fetus news, the band recently released a new music video for the new track “From Womb To Waste.” You can check that out below. Enjoy.
