Recorded in Baltimore with longtime producer Steve Wright (Future Islands) and mixed by MarkLewis (Cannibal Corpse), Make Them Beg For Death contains every Dying Fetus hallmark. The veteran death metal band’s ninth album is fast, intense, and brimming with unstoppable grooves. Monstrous riffs, blast beats, unstoppable hooks, and earth-moving grooves define their catalog.The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, and Whitechapel co-headlined tours with Dying Fetus inrecent years, a testament to the veteran band’s continued relevance and respect in the genre. Decibel Magazineinducted the band’s zeitgeist third album,Destroy the Opposition(2000), into their prestigious Hall Of Fame, next to genre-defining classics from the likes of Metallica and Slayer. Metal Injection hailed Wrong One to Fuck With as a “menacing motherfucker.” The bandcontinually refines its unique take on death, grind, and hardcore with a combination of virtuosity and ferocity, inescapably catchy hooks and punishing breakdowns, and a lack of pretension.“We put our own twist ondeath metal,” explains co-vocalist/guitarist John Gallagher, who co-founded the group in 1991. “We were like most bands, starting in the garage, drinking beer, havinga little fun on the weekend, finding the right amps through trial and error. We blended aspects of bands we liked–Suffocation, Obituary, Deicide, and Cannibal Corpse, among others; the dual vocal approach of Carcass–and made them our own. ‘Let’s make it moshy, let’s make it slammy.’”
Five years later,“Dying Fetus hit the mark again” (Exclaim!) with the ruthless and crushing Wrong One To Fuck With.

In 2014, the fan-driven and tongue-in-cheek “What About Dying Fetus?” hashtag campaign earned them a main stage spot at the UK’s Download Festival, playing before the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Fall Out Boy, and Linkin Park.
