Dying Fetus is an American death metal band that originated in Upper Marlboro, Maryland in 1991. Dying Fetus's debut album Purification through Violence, was released in 1996. Since then, their grindcore metal has been blasting fast beats and slow breakdowns of the buildups. The band is very politically tainted, which sets it apart most death metal groups. Its songs cynically touch on religion, war, and big corporations.Psycroptic emerged out of Tasmania, Australia in 1999 with a technical death metal style. Powered by the brutal drums of Dave Haley, and the guitar-wizardry of his brother Joe Haley, the band stood out among the national heavy metal scene with a steady stream of releases, starting with 2001's The Isle of Disenchantment. Three records deep, Psycroptic signed with Nuclear Blast Records in 2008 and dropped Ob (Servant), which opened the flood gates for both headlining and international tours throughout Europe. The band continues to release new records, such as 2015's self-titled effort.
