It’s been three years since we’ve had our eardrums lovingly assaulted by Dying Fetus. Now, the legendary technical death-metal outfit is preparing to bludgeon us with awesomeness yet again with Reign Supreme, heralded as their most crushing release to date. In case you’ve forgotten about the band’s brutality, give album cut “Second Skin” a spin. If you’re out of change for the drying machine at the laundromat, you could probably just lay your wet clothes on your speakers, play this song, and have your whites practically dry by track’s end. That’s how unrelenting the blast beats are; plus, there’s the familiar, cookie-monster-from-hell growl of singer/guitarist John Gallagher for a little extra grit.
Reign Supreme drops June 19 on Relapse Records.
