"Yeah, I know, lack of a better title, but better than giving some Rolling Stone like title (you know, fruity).

This band rules, and this is the second catchiest death metal album (first still goes to Effigy Of The Forgotten). This band also is the only band that sounds like nothing else. Here's why:

1.Groove. Death metal has to have some of this, other wise, it sounds like complete _____. That's why I hate most metalcore. BEcause it's boring, uses the same damn beats. Most metalcore blows.
Some albums don't have as much, but all metal albums have to have at least a little bit. If it dosen't, it has a much harder time of being something that you can'enjoy for the actual music (okay, there are a few albums that got away with not alot and kick ___, like Obscura).

2.They have a really kick arse style. Grindcore mixed with regular death metal, and it dosen't sound like a Beck song.

3. Lyrics. Yeah, these guys have a name that most lame- half arsed Cannibal Corpse rip-offs, and they had two albums before this that used gore lyrics. But finally, they switched to political and social problems of America. Great to see that some bands aren't trying to make more gore lyrics. CC and others will handle that just fine. So if you want to try a metal band, focus on lyrics that take more thought, or haven't been used. Even if they are about death, you can't use different kinds of death themes (Nile)

That's the main thigns that made a difference to me. And it's awesome to headbang to. If you like death metal, than you should check it out. My only complaint are the vocals, they kind of aren't as good as Suffocation or Cryptopsy (Lord Worm rules)."
Dying Fetus's 2nd Best Album

"It pretty apparent that this is their best offering except of course Infatuated with Malevolence, but this is very high quality throughout. If you are new to Fetus I'd start here and if you are a death metal fan and don't own this CD you are waved. KILLER CD!!!"

"I must say that Dying Fetus has to be one of my faves of the Death/Grind genre. Unfortunately, I was one of those people who found out about Dying Fetus when Stop at Nothing was released. Then shortly afterwards I worked my way backwards through their catalog and bought the amazing "Destroy the Opposition" then I purchased "Killing on Adrenaline" and so on. I would reccommend buying any of the older Dying Fetus CD's first before buying "Stop at Nothing" that one kinda sucked. Onto the review, John Gallagher is one of those vocalists who send goosebumps down your spine. The guttural vocals are almost inhuman and sound like they came out of the pits of hell. He is one amazing guitarist and the rest of the band are amazing musicians as well. I believe Chimaira asked for the talent of Kevin Talley to do the drums for the new Chimaira record in the absence of Andols Herrick. Jason Netherton went on to make Misery Index a full time thing after "Destroy the Opposition." But I'm pretty sure you already knew that. Those who do not like death metal are like "Those bands have no talent...blah blah blah" I just give them a big slap in the face and throw on some Dying Fetus, or some Skinless or Guttural Secrete or Deeds of Flesh and then they pretty much shut up. So if you are a fan of EXTREME METAL of the most punishing kind, pick up all of Dying Fetus' albums along with the aforementioned bands as well."
