This event is all ages
Since John Gallagher and Jason Netherton first formed the band during 'the popular days of Death Metal' in 1991, Dying Fetus have progressed, gained it's unique style and become one of the most acclaimed and popular Death Metal/Grindcore acts in the metal underground.
The band's members combine technical brutality with catchy song structures which make each single track they have released so far innovative and memorable.
After touring with bands such as The Berzerker, Hate Eternal, Gorguts, Skinless and other modern Death Metal acts and releasing five full-lenghts; Jason left the band while Sparky Voyles and Kevin Talley were asked to leave because of various internal conflicts.
Everyone was obviously expecting Dying Fetus' imminent death, but it never happened.
In 2003, Dying Fetus re-appeared with a new album, "Stop At Nothing", and a completely new line-up (only John Gallagher remained). Incredibly enough, even though basically a totally different band, all of the elements that made Dying Fetus such a great group were present in the new release and for someone that didn't know the facts, it would seem that nothing ever changed in the line-up.
Thy Art Is Murder
Thy Art Is Murder is an Australian deathcore band from Blacktown, New South Wales (a suburb located in the city of Sydney). The band formed in 2006 and have released two EPs and two full-length albums and are currently signed to Distort in Canada and Nuclear Blast worldwide.
Carnifex is an American deathcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2005, they are currently signed to Victory Records and have released three studio albums. Their band name literally translates to "executioner" from Latin.
Conceived in 2006, this talented young band comprises of former members of several Chicago metal outfits, and together are rapidly becoming one of the standouts of the Chicago extreme metal scene. Describing themselves as one of the angriest bands on Earth, OCEANO channel this through their music, creating in the process some of the heaviest, most guttural and all-out brutal music to be found anywhere. Having already completed numerous successful tours playing with the likes of Hatebreed and Suffocation, OCEANO are constantly growing in popularity and with a record deal under their belts, are now ready to spread their path of destruction far and wide, and will be soon levelling a town near you."
