DEVOUR THE FETUS | PROMO 2012
Brutal Death Metal/Grindcore | Paris, France
Self Released July 2012
I truly have no idea what is being said during the short introduction that comes with this sickening promo release as it’s all in French, but it makes me laugh so that’s a damn good start to the proceedings. Hailing from the French capital and weighing in at a rather welter-weight like five minutes and seven seconds, one might be forgiven for letting this promo pass you by due it’s diminutive length, but that would be a mistake on your part so luckily for you I’m hear to tell you all about it. Devour The Fetus are a band of two basic emotions, humour and revulsion. A band who try their damnedest to be repugnant and sickening while at the same time will have you pissing yourself with laughter at the same time. Want to know why? Check the lyrics to opening track “Anti Wrinkle Fetus Cream” (That one made me laugh) which go like this… “Breeeeeee Breee Breee Breeeeee Breeeeeeeeeeeeee” etc etc! Pure genius!
Onto the bands sound and what you get is a dominating clash of out right brutality and pig squealing vocals, sometimes with actual lyrics too, you lucky people! Featuring some good break downs and well structured songs, Devour The Fetus weight in with some catchy moments when the chuggs slow down and the double kick drumming reigns supreme, but for the most part this is five minutes of senseless brutality created for your enjoyment. Competent, destructive and thoroughly aggressive, the French are coming and their fully armed and dangerous! [6/10 – LUKE HAYHURST]
