Killing On Adrenaline
KILLING ON ADRENALINE, the 1998 classic from Maryland death metal journeymen Dying Fetus, is an unholy Frankenstein's monster of death metal, speed, and hardcore breakdowns. Trading off guttural demon vocals and torn-larynx barks, the band rides a blistering wave of cascading, land-speed-record drums and bulldozer mosh pit riffs right into a hellish sonic landscape. Songs like "Fornication Terrorists" take hairpin turns from tight, controlled math-metal solos right into brutalizing jackhammer crunch and back again, showcasing the band's stunning skill and broad range. For anyone who isn't sure exactly what death metal should sound like, you could do a lot worse than pointing them at Dying Fetus.
