A conversation with John Gallagher of Dying Fetus

Dying Fetus once again raise the bar of sonic extremity with their 8th studio album and first new material in over 5 years, Wrong One To Fuck With. The seasoned veterans manage to further stretch their creative and technical boundaries across 10 complex tracks of pulverizing death metal, filled with more dynamic intricacies, brutal breakdowns and varied vocal patterns than ever before.

Now over 25 years into their distinguished career, Dying Fetus cement their legacy with Wrong One To Fuck With and uphold their position as the most dominant force in death metal today.

Guitarist/lead vocalist John Gallagher recently checked in with Iron Serbian to discuss the new album, death metal as a career, being carjacked and more from and an undisclosed location deep in the heart of somewhere secret.

On a career in death metal….

I’m still buying the bread on sale at Safeway, like anybody else that’s watching their budget and stuff like this, I’m not just blowing money hand over fist you can live conservatively with death metal if you do it right.

On choosing the title “Wrong One To Fuck With” and imagery on the new album…..

There is no records stores now, we used to have the bold logo on the cd, so people could walk in and read and not just see a pile of sticks that was the idea of using a bold logo, and now theres no cds in Walmart. The title and imagery we just said fuck it, I did want to push it a little further than what came out really, I wanted a really intense, kind of gory cover, like an old Cannibal Corpse theme, I was really pushing for it to be extreme but the label (Relapse Records) wasn’t going for it…..

Dying Fetus will be on tour throughout the year starting with “Summer Slaughter” Tour alongside The Black Dahlia Murder, The Faceless, Oceano and more.  The tour kicks off July 27th in Reading, PA and runs through August 26th in Cleveland, OH.
Following a quick break Dying Fetus will head overseas on the “Wrong One To Fuck With Europe” 2017 Tour.   The tour runs October 13th through November 18th and features support from Psycroptic, Beyond Creation and Disentomb.  A complete list of dates for all tour can be found below.
