"While Dying Fetus's previous albums were great, they've reached a whole new plateau with their newest release. "Stop At Nothing" raises the ante for this band with one of the most brutally intense slabs of insanity these ears have ever had the pleasure of hearing. There's really very little point in my describing in words how hard this album hits; it's something you need to hear for yourself. If you want something mellow, look elsewhere; one listen to "Stop At Nothing" and you'll probably be banging your head like a madman from beginning to end (I know I was). Dying Fetus offer up all the blazing speed, pummelling heaviness, and awe-inspiring technicality that any death/grind fan could possibly expect, but there's more going on here. Beneath the full frontal assault, these songs offer things like complex arrangements, constant tempo changes, drum variety, and even semi-discernible vocals, ensuring an interesting listen even after the initial shock has worn off. This album was released a mere week after Lamb Of God's equally stunning "As The Palaces Burn," and those two releases may well wind up duking it out for my prestigious "album of the year" honor. If bands like Dying Fetus and Lamb Of God represent the new face of extremity, the future's looking pretty good."
Onslaught of malice, indeed

"As soon as the opening song kicks into high gear, you should realize that Dying Fetus' fifth album is about as heavy as heavy gets. It's also as dark as death metal gets. From the scorching riff and thunderous blast beat on "Schematics" to the pounding, earth shaking power chords which close out "Vengeance Unleashed," not a single ray of light or melody shines through on any of "Stop At Nothing." The words "brutal," "uncompromising," and "dissonant" don't even begin to describe this album. It's fueled by complex and walloping drum beats, crushing, sludgy riffs, and one of two vocal styles--very deep and growly "angry bear" vocals, or higher, more intelligible (but not quite hardcore) screams. And, of course, this is Dying Fetus, so the musicianship on display here is almost immeasurable. The drummer sounds inhuman, and the riffs are very complex. Plus, the guitar solos are usually a lot more technical than those of other death metal bands. "One Shot, One Kill" boasts ultra heavy, churning riffs and a stunning, speed of light blast beat, whereas songs like "Institutions of Deceit" and "Abandon All Hope" are backed by buzzsaw guitar maelstroms (plus the former track also has a fast, cracking snare drum.) Some songs even manage to be kind of catchy (consider the bobbing riffs and staccato vocals on "Forced Elimination"), and the appropriately titled seventh track, "Onslaught of Malice," is maybe the most complicated of the bunch. It marries slow, grinding riffs with many different tempos/rhythms, and also features a breakneck speed change. If you like heavy as heck death metal, virtuosic musicianship, or metal which combines brains with brawn, nothing should stand in your way of owning this album. In other words, Stop At Nothing until you buy this C.D."

"Dying fetus rips out pure unadulterated bat to your grandma's face metal from hell with the newest release "Stop At Nothing". Except for some minor timing problems and a faint click of the metronome in the background, S.A.N. is my Dying Fetus fav. I like this album a lot with its creativity, easy flowing format, and constant attention getting riffs. Most metal bands give us the old 1-2. Lets stick 1 to 2 boring power chords and play them till we have a 3 min 30 sec song we can puke up on a cd. Then we'll add 9 more and bang! A cd for 9.99!! Not here. For a good time call Dying Fetus extension S.A.N. But don't get too excited, drummer Erik Sayenga has left the band. We can only hope for the best on the next cd! Rock on."
